Confluent, a data streaming platform maker, intends to hire an extra 100 people in India over the rest of the year, filling out a new office and engineering hub.
The company said that the extra 100 roles represented a “50 percent increase” on the current workforce.
The 100 new hires are “for roles within go-to-market, engineering and global supporting functions”.
The new office and engineering hub “comes amid surging demand for data streaming as companies modernise data processes across all industries,” senior vice president Hemanth Vedagarbha said.
“India is a key market for Confluent as we scale up our global presence,” Vedagarbha said.
“The public cloud services market is growing at a rapid rate and we’re already seeing many exciting use cases among customers here.
“Bangalore is fast becoming the technology hub of the country, which makes it a natural home for Confluent to deliver its new category of data infrastructure to enable businesses of all types to set their data in motion.”
