Mindtree, the global digital-transformation company, has announced the inauguration of its first development centre in Kolkata.
It already has a 1,000-strong team in Kolkata, as it had been hiring even during the pandemic. Now, it plans to double its team size in the city in the next financial year.
Debashis Chatterjee, CEO and managing director, Mindtree, describes the centre as “an important milestone in our endeavour to leverage the best of the best talent in helping our customers accelerate their digital transformation journeys”.
He reveals that “the centre is the result of our continued investments in cutting-edge talent and infrastructure to meet the robust global demand for our services. Our focus is on leveraging our domain and technology leadership, global client footprint, progressive people practices, and close collaboration with academia to create future-ready talent and fast-paced careers in the city”.
One of Mindtree’s key differentiators is its access to new-age talent and Kolkata is crucial to giving the Company a competitive advantage. “We look forward to growing our infrastructure and operations in the city as we build upon our industry-leading growth momentum,” adds Chatterjee.
The development centre, spread across 56,000-sq.ft., is located in Sector V of Bidhannagar. The facility is compliant with LEED standards of environmentally sustainable operations, and has been designed as an agile workplace to enable greater collaboration, innovation and creativity.
From Kolkata, the Company will continue to provide digital solutioning, consulting, cloud, core modernisation, product engineering, business intelligence, data analytics, CRM platform, and cybersecurity services to some of the world’s largest retail, consumer goods, manufacturing, banking, financial services, insurance, travel, transportation, and hospitality companies in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
