LinkedIn opens Technology Center in Bangalore: And, we’re hiring!

November 15, 2011

Ed. note:  India is one of the fastest-growing member bases in the LinkedIn network. To keep pace with our rapid growth, we’ve opened a technology center in Bangalore.  Here, we hear from Ganesh Krishnan, Senior Director of Engineering at LinkedIn, who will be heading the Bangalore technology center.


We set up our first Asia Pacific (APAC) sales and marketing presence in India back in November 2009. We are extremely excited to setup our first APAC technology presence also in India, which is one of our fastest growing member bases. Opening a technology center in Bangalore allows us to be where are members are from a technology perspective and is a commitment to the region.  With its rich technical talent pool and a profusion of high-tech companies, Bangalore is known as “The Silicon Valley of India.” So, this is a natural fit.

We want to leverage the abundance of exceptional technical talent in India to help build the global LinkedIn platform. LinkedIn’s Bangalore technology center will augment our global development and operations teams, including the technical talent at our Mountain View headquarters.

And, here’s some even better news: we’re hiring!

We’re looking for exceptional software engineers, operations engineers, network engineers, data warehouse engineers and database administrators at all levels.

To build a global product to connect all of the world’s professionals, we need the best talent. Do you have what it takes?
