RedMart Singapore Expands to Bangalore, India

PR Newswire | 10 Sep, 2014
BANGALORE: RedMart, a Singapore-based online grocer, has announced that it has opened a Development Centre in Bangalore, India. The move comes nearly three years after the start of the company's operations in Singapore and is the next step in the strategy to support and enhance their ecommerce technology platform.

RedMart (www.redmart.com) will not be making available its online grocery service in India; rather it will be hiring top-quality engineers for its Bangalore Development Centre in order to continue to innovate their e-commerce capabilities.

The Bangalore Development Centre will be led by Sanjeev Bijapur, Head of India Operations, who is charged with establishing and building a large pool of technology development talent at the Centre. Burhan Surti has joined the team, as Head of Technology and will drive the technology roadmap and engineering activities.

"RedMart has ambitious vision, we are innovating rapidly and using bleeding-edge technology," said Bijapur. "Tapping the local talent will give us an opportunity to build a high performance team, enable us to work on disruptive technologies and be part of an exciting working atmosphere," he added.

Bangalore Centre will be the analytics hub for data oriented decision making business expansions. It will provide the next generation optimization algorithms for key business processes.
