They provide job opportunities in segments like banking & finance, consulting, research & analytics, sales & marketing, HR, IT, supply chain and legal.

As per an official statement from Matta, the company has worked with more than 500 enterprise customers and has been profitable in the last two-three years. The company also owns another job portal, focussing on tech- and engineering-related jobs, called hirist.com.
