Google Cloud to open new office in Pune, India
The company is already advertising positions at the office even though it won't open until later in 2022
The company will focus on hiring members for its cloud product engineering, technical support, and global delivery centre organisations. It said these teams will help build advanced enterprise cloud technologies in collaboration with global engineering teams, provide real-time technical advice, and deliver product and implementation expertise for digital transformation.
The new location is set to open in the second half of 2022 but the company is eager to begin hiring now alongside its growing teams in Gurgaon, Hyderabad, and Bangalore. Google revealed that the planned expansion is the latest in a series of investments to fuel its customer growth and valued offerings to organisations of all sizes.
There are already open positions on Google careers for jobs located in the new office, including roles such as manager of technical solutions engineering, an engineering manager, a big data technical solutions specialist, and a software engineer.
“India has long been a hub for technology and innovation, and the strong talent pool here makes it a strategic location for Google Cloud to invest in our cloud infrastructure, grow our operations and expand our workforce to support our growing customer base,” said Anil Bhansali, Google Cloud’s VP of cloud engineering in India.

Bhansali underlined that India is one of a small handful of countries in Asia Pacific where Google operates two Google Cloud regions, and last October the company committed to training over 40 million new people globally on Google Cloud skills, which many in India continue to take advantage of.
Google Cloud opened its new region last July in Delhi, after launching the Mumbai region in 2017. The company said this would better support customers and the public sector in India and actress Asia Pacific. The region has three availability zones to protect against service disruptions, and customers are able to benefit from low latency and high performance of their cloud-based workloads and data, according to the company.
