Digital infrastructure company Equinix has announced that it will set up a talent hub in Bengaluru to focus on emerging technologies, corporate applications, data engineering and analytics, among other IT domains.
As the fifth-largest economy in the world, India is a high-growth digital market experiencing a data revolution. India's Silicon Valley, Bengaluru, is widely regarded as the major tech hub in the country.
Currently, Equinix has IT talent hubs in Dallas, Silicon Valley, Singapore and Warsaw. The company plans to hire approximately 500 IT professionals in Bengaluru by the end of 2024.
Manoj Paul, Managing Director, Equinix India said “At Equinix, we will continue to invest locally to drive innovation aligned with market requirements and nurture IT talent in India. As an industry leader with a global footprint and robust business ecosystems, Equinix is well-positioned to support the digital revolution in India, supporting businesses locally and globally.”
By reimagining the role of technology through an agile and product-centric approach, the team builds on Equinix’s digital leadership with modern technologies such as cloud, machine learning, artificial intelligence and DevSecOps.
Building upon the recent acquisition of two data centers in Mumbai, dubbed MB1 and MB2, the Global Center of Excellence (GCoE) in Bengaluru will offer innovative solutions to accelerate the digital capabilities of enterprises across the globe, including India.
