Mumbai, India, Aug 14, 2015 -- LocalOye.com, an online platform to book services online, is in an aggressive ramp-up mode. From a 25-member team in March this year, it intends to scale up employee strength to 500 by end October this year.

"We have been expanding really fast," said Aditya Rao, CEO, LocalOye. "We will be hiring across all verticals including technology, operations, call centre, marketing, HR, finance and legal," he added.
The startup also intends to hire off campuses such as the IITs and BITS Pilani this year. On the senior leadership front, the startup, has, just last month, brought on board a new chief business officer, Bharati Balakrishnan, who has over nine years of work experience across finance and healthcare categories. A BITS Pilani and IIM Ahmedabad grad, Balakrishnan has had previous stints with Bain and HSBC abroad.
