MyGate, an app-based security management system for gated communities, plans to create more than 200 new jobs by March 2022 as it looks to expand new business verticals, such as Community and Brand Engagement and Home Services. Over the past year, the company, which helps gated communities manage their security and operations by automating manual tasks, has added 10,000 housing societies and has grown its presence to 25,000 societies across more than 25 cities.
It has over 1,000 employees. The staff count will be at around 1,200 with the addition of 200 people.
MyGate said its engineering and product departments, based in Bengaluru, will account for most of the talent search. The team has about 130 people and is expected to reach 200 by March-end.
The business development function would see the next biggest growth spurt, with new joinees spread across the country, it added.
MyGate is working with hundreds of brands on its Brand Engagement vertical and will also build its Home Services vertical. 10 per cent of the daily active users in the target audience have explored Home Services on the app, according to limited pilots in Bengaluru.
With the vast room for growth in the space, and our positive results in new areas such as Brand and Community Engagement and Home Services, we are excited to grow the team and quickly work toward solving the many challenges that lie ahead of us, MyGate co-founder and COO Abhishek Kumar said.
