Sports-first live TV streaming platform FuboTV Inc is going ahead with its plans for tech hiring across India. The New York-headquartered streaming service entered the Indian market by acquiring Edisn.ai in 2021. At present, the Edisn team in Bangalore is fully integrated with FuboTV and is helping lead the company’s tech innovation on a global scale.
FuboTV plans to hire data engineers, product managers, design directors, among other positions in the coming months. The company expects to grow its local headcount in Bangalore by up to 400%.
Established in 2015 FuboTV identifies Bengaluru as a critical enabler as a tech hub for its expansion.
On the proposed hiring agenda, Ashok Karanth, head of FuboTV India, said, “An alternative to traditional pay TV cable and satellite, FuboTV is a streaming platform that aggregates live and on-demand content across multiple genres and presents interactive features and functionality, like cloud DVR. Following the acquisition of Edisn.ai in 2021, FuboTV has identified Bangalore as an important center for tech innovation.”
