LinkedIn Opens Its First Overseas Development Center in Bengaluru

Professional networking site LinkedIn has opened a technology centre in Bengaluru, according to a company announcement. It claims that this will be the company’s first such office outside its Mountain View headquarters in California.

The company claims to have over 12 million members from India and 135 million members globally and informs that the new technology centre will be involved in developing LinkedIn solutions for members across the world. It will also help the company’s global development and operations teams based in Mountain View headquarters and will be headed by Ganesh Krishnan, who was previously the Sr. Director Engineering and Security at LinkedIn’s Mountain View headquarters.

Although this is Linkedin’s first technology centre in India, it will be the company’s fourth office in the country, since it launched its India headquarters at Mumbai in November 2009, followed by sales offices in Gurgaon and Bengaluru.

The company also added that more than 40,000 developers are already using LinkedIn APIs to create tools and services for professionals, and is currently averaging over two billion API calls per month.

On Job Portals: Responding to queries about any future association with job portals like Naukri or Monster, Deep Nishar, Senior Vice President, Products & User Experience at LinkedIn, dismissed it by saying that he doesn’t believe in the ‘Resume system’ since resumes tend to get outdated pretty often, the reason why LinkedIn has a dynamic live profile approach.

On BranchOut and BeKnown: Deep Nishar said that services like BranchOut and Monster’s BeKnown, which use Facebook’s user base for career networking, are not typically a correct approach since the platform and the context where career conversations happen, matters a lot to many users and they may not be comfortable mixing career conversations with other conversations on Facebook.
