USEReady, a New York-headquartered strategic data and Analytics partner, has set up a new data centre in Mohali, Chandigarh.
The data centre, which is already operational, aims to create jobs for local talent that is growing in smaller towns post the pandemic. USEReady is likely to hire around 200 data Analytics and engineers from Mohali in this year.
After setting up offices in Gurugram and Bengaluru, USEReady is now investing in several tier II and III cities, with a focus on developing India’s data Analytics talent. The company plans to open four more data centres in the next 24 months that would provide employment opportunities to over 1500 more data analysts and engineers.
“USEReady is a community driven oriented business. We want to scale USEReady's practices by investing in Mohali and other high talent potential cities in India,” said it’s founder and CEO Uday Hegde.
The startup also plans to create a "One USEReady" environment. “We want our global offices in the US and Canada to be connected not only digitally but also by constant travel interactions.
USEReady’s investment in tier II and III cities is an example of a larger phenomenon in the Indian startup ecosystem. With growing demand for talent in India, many Indian startups are turning to smaller towns. By setting up offices in tier II and III cities, the startups are not only optimising cost but are also able to attract a diverse pool of talent.
