Uber sees India development centers driving global innovations

Monday, November 27, 2017

US-based ride hailing app Uber is betting big on its development centers in India in Bengaluru and Hyderabad for driving innovation, especially in areas like ride booking and vehicle telematics to enhance rider and driver experience globally.

The company, which has about 150 people across its development teams in the two Indian cities, is also looking to scale up its operations. “India is one of our key development centers and we have a strong commitment here. We have lots of innovation coming out of here (India) for the Indian market but also for the entire world, the most prominent one being cash. Cash is used (to pay for rides) in many countries now,” Uber global head of product Daniel Graf said.
