GDT will also expand its India Technology Center of Excellence to hire and train skilled IT resources in emerging technologies, he said.
“We plan to increase our headcount from 175 to 300 very soon,” said O’Grady. The company had recently announced its intent to build up its operations in India. GDT will be hiring both laterals and freshers from Indian colleges, prioritising networking-related skills.
The company is also planning to establish a second office in India in the upcoming months, O’Grady said, adding that the location is still undecided among Hyderabad, Pune, Chennai or Bengaluru. “Talent will be the main factor in our choice,” he said.
The company made $1.3 billion in revenue in fiscal 2023, projecting $1.5 billion for the upcoming fiscal, O’Grady said.
