This year marks a significant milestone for OpenText’s operations in Hyderabad, India, which has now become the site of one of our largest technology and innovation centers company-wide with more than 1,000 staff.
And in Bengaluru, we are set to move our teams to a beautiful new facility to accommodate all our staff in one office and to support more hires in the future.
To recognize the remarkable growth at OpenText, we wanted to reflect on the journey to date and share some of the exciting things happening at OpenText India today.
OpenText first established operations in India in February 2009. Our first office was located in Hyderabad and within six months we had around 100 staff working there.
Initially, our India office was primarily focused on Engineering. However, over the years the focus of our operations has greatly expanded.
Professional Services was the next OpenText function to build a team in India. Our Professional Services organization now hires a range of positions including Consultants, Solution Architects, Program Managers, Support Engineers, Analysts, and more. Today, we also have an increasing number of IT and Technical Support staff in India.
Isaac Rajkumar, Managing Director, India, has been central to OpenText’s growth in India. He was our first employee in India when we established our operations in Hyderabad.
For Isaac, one of the most exciting things about OpenText’s growth in India is the career opportunities that have accompanied the company’s expansion.
Isaac explains, “The growth we’ve seen has been both purposeful and inclusive. It has provided opportunities for people such as myself and many others to grow with the company in the process of fulfilling a powerful OpenText vision.”
This opportunity and inclusive growth is also reflected in the gender diverse population that exists in India today. The Engineering organization is composed of 28% women in technology or management functions.
Isaac encourages professionals and new graduates to consider a career with OpenText. “Now is a great time, as the breadth and depth of opportunities are more than ever before,” he says. “OpenText offers a compelling chance for professional growth. Employees contribute to the company’s vision using state-of-the-art technologies and in collaboration with exceptionally talented colleagues.”
We also hire many students – the OpenText Engineering team in India has the largest intern program company-wide, with 95 active interns in Hyderabad and 20 in Bengaluru.
