As part of its commitment to expand and innovate further in India, US-based video meet app Zoom is fast recruiting DevOps engineers, IT, security and business operations personnel in the country.
Zoom, which has an office in Mumbai and data centres in Mumbai and Hyderabad, recently announced to open a technology centre in Bengaluru.
“We are excited to hire key talent. Employees will work from home until it is safe to move into the new facility,” Velchamy Sankarlingam, President of Engineering and Products at Zoom, said in a blog post.
“We continue to invest significantly in supporting global audiences, and India will play a critical role in that growth and innovation,” he added.
Last week, Eric S. Yuan, CEO of Zoom, said in a statement that they are proud to provide services for free to over 2,300 educational institutions in India during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We plan to hire key employees for the technology center over the next few years, pulling from India’s highly-educated engineering talent pool. This facility will play a critical role in Zoom’s continued growth.”
Zoom is currently supporting various organisations like Teach for India, IMS Learning Resources Private Limited, IFFCO and the CyberPeace Foundation.
From January to April 2020, Zoom said it has seen 6,700 per cent growth in free user sign ups in India.
