Google India has hired a senior VP and a senior engineer to lead its engineering team.
The hiring, according to Google India’s VP and COO Sandeep Sharma, comes amid a new initiative by the company to create a “talent pipeline” to help engineers, developers and product managers get into the IT industry.
This initiative, known as Tri Starr Personnel, is part of Google’s efforts to attract talent from outside the tech industry to its India-based operations.
The new hires will work closely with Tri Storrs’ team to make sure that all employees are treated equally.
Sharma said the new hires, which are part of a larger hire, will join a tri-starr team led by a VP of engineering and two senior engineers.
This team is expected to build out a talent pipeline to get people in the tech and engineering communities in India, he added.
According to Sharma, the hiring of these people will allow Google to increase its talent pool in the region.
Google is working to recruit more engineering and development talent from across the globe to support its operations in India.
Google has recently rolled out its India presence, launching a number of offices and offices in the country.
The company is planning to invest about $1.5 billion over the next five years in India’s tech sector.
The search giant is expected continue to invest in India for the long-term.
According a report by research firm TechCrunch, Google will be adding 5,000 people to its workforce in India over the coming three years, bringing the total to more than 20,000.
