The company plans to invest ₹350 crore in India and hire 500 product innovators & engineers
US-based aerial imagery and data analytics company EagleView Technologies has opened its biggest R&D centre in Bengaluru.
The company plans to invest ₹350 crore in India over the next 24 months and onboard 500 product innovators and engineers by December next year, as reported by BusinessLine.
Located within Bengaluru’s Pritech Park SEZ, Bellandur, the 80,000 sq ft facility is EagleView’s third R&D centre. Its two existing R&D centres are located in Bellevue, Washington and in Rochester, New York.
While the former is focussed on Machine Learning and Applications development, the latter is focussed on the hardware side of the company’s business.
Freshers can apply too
“Our goal is to globalise the business from India, not to build a back office to support the global business. In the next 24 months, we will invest ₹350 crore in India,” Rishi Daga, CEO, EagleView Technologies, was quoted as saying.
Fifteen to 20 per cent of our hires will comprise freshers who will be trained in-house for periods ranging from 3-9 months, he added.
EagleView claims to have over 200 million users of its software globally and considers Microsoft, IBM, SAP and Oracle as its main competitors.
After expanding into Europe, Australia and the UK, it is now looking to foray into South America and West Asia.
