LeEco India R&D centre to hire over 1,100 engineers by 2017

New Delhi, Aug 9 (ANI): Global internet and technology conglomerate LeEco is ramping up its recruitment effort in India with its plan to hire over 1,100 engineers for its Indian Research and Development centre by 2017.

The company plans to hire from tier-I engineering colleges like the IITs and the NITs across the country.

The fact that LeEco has started its recruitment spadework across campuses has also surcharged the fresher's community with a hope of getting a chance to work with LeEco.

"We are humbled and excited to see the interest amongst students' community to work with us. Many of them came to attend our test braving heavy downpour and flood like situation that Bangalore witnessed last week," said Head of LeEco India R&D, Shrinivas Bairi.

"The skill sets we are looking for are areas including modem technologies, BSP, multimedia, TV Broadcast and internet technologies," added Bairi.

Indian R&D team will be involved in both commercialization and localization support for all the devices launched in India. The centre will churn out innovations and work with China and US R&D centre.

It will also soon start a camera image engineering lab for image quality, RF/Antenna design and tuning lab for smart devices.

The R&D centre will help the company to meet all the local requirements, support Indian languages, follow government regulations like Panic button and GPS requirements, and comply with different carrier requirements.

It will also support the parent company in customization of its products before

global launches. The centre will develop cutting-edge technology and features that will be patented in India.

This is a vital cog in the wheels of LeEco's 'Make in India' plan.

Apart from developing cutting-edge technology for its smart devices, the India R&D centre will also help LeEco's ecommerce marketplace, LeMall.com to develop data analytics and machine learning tools in order to improve the customer experience and sales. (ANI)
