"We see immense potential in India's tech talent and have been expanding our India tech presence since the start of this year. In 2018, our tech teams grew by 150 per cent and we are focused on doubling down again in 2019," Apurva Dalal, Head of Engineering, Uber India said in a statement.
Techies are working on areas of customer engagement, rider access (next billion riders), Uber Eats, Maps, Marketplace and Data platforms, Dalal added.
Uber will continue hiring talent from top engineering universities in the country besides lateral hiring in the areas of data science, distributed systems, mobile, artificial intelligence and machine learning and others.
