IT firm GlobalLogic looking to double India headcount in 2-3 years
As it aims to triple its revenue in the next three years, IT firm GlobalLogic is also doubling down on its hiring in India.
Puneet Gupta, CTO at GlobalLogic, told BusinessLine that the firm is looking to hire about 1,500 people in India in the next one year.
Currently, the San Jose-headquartered company has about 13,000 employees globally with the India count standing at about 6,500. The company is focusing on building engineering capabilities in several new areas and is vying for product-focused engineers to accelerate the journey.
Puneet stated, “We are building our skills in areas such as AI, machine learning, cloud-related paradigm, AR/VR, core digital scalability and digital security and Blockchain."
He added that the firm is also looking at a 6-screen experience, where it is trying to create fluid experiences across different screens. Gupta added that he believes TV will be the next big computing device.
Globally, the company runs 18 practices or capability areas such as blockchain and devops, each of which is trying to create niche skillset. For its hiring plans, the company will be looking to do both lateral and college hiring. At a global level, the hiring could exceed 2,500 in the next year alone.
The IT firm has also been looking to triple its revenues to $2 Bn from about $650 Mn currently, partly through acquisitions and the rest through organic growth.
