Netradyne, an artificial intelligence (AI) and edge computing company focusing on driver and fleet safety, is looking at hiring over 300 employees by the end of Q1 in 2022.
“Our operations in India are growing at a good pace and we need to fast track hiring of our team(s) accordingly. As the skill sets needed for our line of work are niche in nature, we would be adopting various routes to bring in these specialists from leading campuses such as IISC, IITs and top local colleges such as RVCE, BMS to name a few,” said Trinette Jackson, senior director of HR at Netradyne.
“We are also hiring and scouting for talent with cloud experience across India. For instance, we are expanding our footprint to Chennai to tap the cloud engineering talent available there,” she said.
Currently, to recruit specialist talent the company is leveraging several niche platforms such as HackerEarth for cloud skills, Kaggle for research and analytics, etc. besides using networking platforms such as Linkedin.
“The skill sets we require are guided by three technical and two non-technical business groups. The technical business groups are device (hardware, software and embedded), cloud (comprising a huge team of front-end, back-end developers and cloud management experts) and research analytics (machine learning and data science). The non-technical business groups consist of operations support and business development. Together, these skill sets deepen our differentiation as a pioneering start-up that makes cutting-edge safe driving technology in India that is used by leading companies across the world," said Durgadutt Nedungadi, vice-president - international business at Netradyne.
The company has about 240+ employees in India. The firm recently received a $150 million Series C funding from SoftBank Vision Fund along with other existing investors, Point72 Ventures and M12. It is using this new funding to advance its core technology, expand into new geographies and accelerate hiring across R&D, marketing and customer support.
