UST, a global digital transformation solutions firm, plans to hire at least 2,000 people in the coming years, bringing its team strength in Hyderabad to 4,000. UST has come a long way in Hyderabad since its humble beginnings with a small team of 250 people about five years ago. UST has opened a new office in Hyderabad’s International Tech Park as part of its expansion in India.
The California-based company already has a 20,000-person India team, which accounts for the lion’s share of its 30,000-person global workforce. It also has development and software delivery centres in Chennai, Kochi, Coimbatore, Pune, Bengaluru, Thiruvananthapuram, Hosur, and Delhi NCR.
Engineers and researchers will collaborate with clients, partners, and academics in the laboratory at the newly-opened innovation hub, UST’s fourth in the country after Kochi, Chennai, and Thiruvananthapuram.
The new facility will be a research and development (R&D) centre for artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), the Internet of Things (IoT), and other emerging technologies, in addition to engineering and computer information science (CIS). It will also contribute to the development of SAS platform practises.
The company is eager to leverage the rich talent pool available locally to strengthen its capabilities and grow the hub into a global capacity centre to meet the needs of various industries such as telecommunications, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, insurance, and pharmaceuticals.
