Zoom plans significant investments, to ramp up hiring in India

Video-conferencing app Zoom is planning to make investments in India over the next five years and scale up hiring.


"Some of the misconceptions are disheartening, especially those about Zoom and China," said Velchamy Sankarlingam Zoom’s president of product and engineering, in a blog post. "We do recognise that as we continue to introduce ourselves to the Indian market, there has been some confusion about the facts as it relates to Zoom. We want to work through these".


"We also have plans for significant investment in the country over the next five years and beyond, including expanding our footprint and hiring more top talent in the region".


Sankarlingam stated India is and will continue to be an important market for Zoom, and that the video-conferencing platform is excited to build on the exciting opportunities it sees in the region.


“Zoom’s presence in India is represented on the ground by an office in Mumbai, as well as two Data Centres (one in Mumbai and one in Hyderabad),” he added. Besides him, two of Zoom’s top executives – Aparna Bawa (Chief Operating Officer) and Sunil Madan (Corporate Chief Information Officer) – are of Indian descent, he noted.


The platform offers 40 minutes of video calling for free.
