Calcutta, May 7: US-based IT services company Altimetrik plans to double its global headcount in the next one year. At present, the company employs over 1,800 across the world, including India.

"Our company has presence in three cities in India - Bangalore, Pune and Chennai. As of now, we have made a million-dollar investment in Pune and Bangalore in 'Playground', an innovation and technology-oriented workspace. This comprises a design studio and innovation lab. It is expected to increase our delivery speed by up to 30 per cent across verticals such as banking, healthcare, financial technology and manufacturing," Raj Sundaresan, chief operating officer of Altimetrik, told The Telegraph over phone.

The company handles around 30 clients globally of which six are from India. Nearly 70 per cent of the company's global workforce are based in India.

Based in Southfield, Michigan, the company is building a global workforce of digital talent across its development locations in New York, Bangalore, Chennai, Pune and Montevideo in Uruguay.

The technology and solutions partner to global enterprises believes Playground will lead Altimetrik's growth in industries such as banking, healthcare, fintech and manufacturing. It aims to blend technology and innovation with global talent and capabilities.

"We want to establish a network of 'Playgrounds' once we launch similar centres in the US, Uruguay and other strategic locations. In fact, as India is stressing on digital economy, I feel Pune has the potential to lead the path. The disruptive combinations which the Playground will offer, will enable us to achieve non-linear growth in our deeper clientele strategy globally," the company official said, adding that innovation has always been an intrinsic part of Altimetrik's solutions.

"Through the Playground we want to empower the tech-savvy workforce to meaningfully use technology with an engineering and business-outcome mindset,' he said.

Besides strengthening the firm's position in existing locations, it is aiming to enter Europe within the next three quarters. "We are in an expansion mode and are looking to finalise a location in Europe by the end of this year," Sundaresan said.
