Most companies in the healthcare sector are ramping up their technology and hiring top technologists to cater to the increasing demand. Conversely, there is an emerging interest in technologists to join the healthcare sector.
An increasing number of US and European companies are looking to set up tech centers or R&D centers in India owing to the economical infrastructure and abundant tech talent. Suki.AI, a US-based Series B startup is also capitalizing on this trend, setting up an office in Bangalore.

Nitin was previously a Director of Engineering at AppDynamics; prior to that, he has worked at reputed companies like InMobi and Microsoft.
In a recent blog post, Punit Soni, the Founder & CEO of Suki.AI, talks about setting up an office in India and hiring Nitin as the Site Leader:
“I’m really excited to share that we’ll be opening an office in Bangalore, India. No major technology company in today’s era can achieve greatness without an India story. And we are glad to kick this off with a major investment in a world-class engineering and customer success center that will complement our US team. To lead the office, I’m very thrilled to welcome Nitin Gupta to Suki. Nitin is a seasoned engineering leader with 20 years of experience building software solutions across a variety of industries.”
