Bangalore, May 29, 2020: Backup-as-a-service leaders, Clumio, have opened the Clumio Research and Development Centre in Bangalore. The centre will be an integral part of Clumio’s capability to build and deliver services on its cutting-edge platform built on AWS.
The R&D Centre is a strategic investment for the company to innovate and build SaaS-based data protection solutions. To ensure steady progress through excellence across products and customer experiences, Clumio is hiring bright individuals to fill roles across Software Engineering, Cloud Operations and Customer Support and Success. The company, is creating a strong base in India already having 34 employees and planning to expand to more than 70 by the end of 2020. The startup headquartered in Santa Clara, California was co-founded in 2017 by Poojan Kumar, Kaustubh Patil and Woon Jung, and to date has raised $186M of funding.
Clumio leverages the most modern cloud capabilities, including more than ten major AWS services, to ensure it meets the current and future backup requirements of the most demanding enterprises.
Says Poojan Kumar, CEO and co-founder:"When multi-national companies go to India, they generally go as an afterthought. Their ‘when’ and ‘why’ are different from Clumio. ‘When’ is very late for them, sometimes 10 years in. For instance, a $45B collaboration software company went only a couple years ago. The ‘why’ is often only for cost reasons. Clumio is unique in that we went to India within 18 months of our founding. The ‘why’ was very pure - to tap into the big candidate pool in India and not for cost reasons - it’s for the talent. This will enable us to have the Clumio Research and Development Centre be part of the DNA of the company - not an afterthought."
