Indian tech services firm could bring 200 jobs to Durham
News | 11 May 2018
Nearly a year after Infosys’ 2,000-job announcement, another Indian technology firm has picked the Triangle for a major operation.
Zensar, a Pune, India-based technology services firm, just announced the launch of a Durham-based customer delivery center. According to the company, the space can seat 200 people. The current plan, according to the company’s announcement, is to hire 100 locally for the center. The roles span the IT spectrum and include developers, data analysts project leads.
The plan includes a “provision to double the headcount up to 200 by end of 2019.”
Zensar, according to the company, was lured to the site by its proximity to “key customers.”
“North America is our biggest region and we are focused on making intense investments in this region,” stated Sandeep Kishore, CEO and managing director of Zensar. “Some of our important customers are located in the vicinity, making the RTP a perfect location for our first nearshore customer delivery center here. We are committed to investing in building local talent that will strengthen our customer offerings. The facility will deliver on our business services, making us trusted partners to our customers.”
“We look forward to training, learning and growing our operations in this region characterized by growth, innovation and diversity,” added Venky Ramanan, executive vice president and head of platinum accounts with Zensar. “Our team based in this location will be proactively working to enhance our relationship by engaging closely with the customer team.”
The company’s key verticals in the U.S. are manufacturing, retail, financial services and consumer businesses. And it’s grown inorganically through the years with acquisitions of property and casualty insurance-focused Cynosure, design firm Foolproof and digital supply chain solutions firm Keystone.
Execs weren’t immediately available to comment on the move, but the announcement cites the proximity to “top educational institutions” and Raleigh-Durham International Airport as other factors in luring the firm to the region.
And it's one of several Indian technology firms that have picked the region. HCL Technologies brought more than 1,200 jobs to Cary and Infosys is in the process of hiring for its new Raleigh technology hub.
