Netradyne- the leading provider of AI (artificial intelligence) and edge computing that primarily focuses on fleet and driver safety, recently announced that the company would be hiring more than 300 specialized skilled personnel by the end of Q1 in 2022.
Sharing more details about their decision, Trinette Jackson, Senior Director of HR at Netradyne, reinstated, “Our operations in India are growing at a good pace, and we need to fast track hiring of our team(s) accordingly. As the skill sets needed for our line of work are niche in nature, we would be adopting various routes to bring in these specialists from leading campuses such as IISC, IITs and top local colleges such as RVCE, BMS to name a few,” says
She further added, “We are also hiring and scouting for talent with Cloud experience across India. For instance, we are expanding our footprint to Chennai to tap the cloud engineering talent available there.”
Elaborating further, Durgadutt Nedungadi, Vice President – International Business at Netradyne, said, “The skill sets we require are guided by three technical and two non-technical business groups. The technical business groups are Device (Hardware, Software & Embedded), Cloud (comprising a huge team of front-end, back-end developers and Cloud management experts), and Research Analytics (Machine Learning and Data Science). The non-technical business groups comprise Operations Support and Business Development. Together, these skill sets deepen our differentiation as a pioneering start-up that makes cutting-edge safe driving technology in India used by leading companies across the world.”
At present, Netradyne is leveraging multiple niche platforms like HackerEarth for Cloud skills, Kaggle for research & analytics, etc., apart from using popular networking platforms like LinkedIn to recruit specialist talent.
“Due to the COVID effects since the candidate base is so diverse and spread out, we conduct seamless virtual onboarding and send out our new joinee kit along with some fun and unique hampers to welcome them to the Netradyne family,” explained Trinette Jackson. Recently the company received a $150 million Series C funding from SoftBank Vision Fund and other existing investors, including Point72 Ventures and M12. Netradyne is utilizing the new funding to advance its core technology. The company also plans to enter into new geographies, and accelerate hiring across marketing, R&D, and customer support.
