FuboTV Inc. live TV streaming platform recently announced its plans for tech hiring in India. The U.S. headquartered streaming service entered the Indian market by acquiring Edisn.ai in 2021. Currently, the Edisn team in Bangalore is fully integrated with FuboTV and is helping lead the company’s tech innovation on a global scale.
Established in 2015 and headquartered in New York City, FuboTV identifies Bengaluru as a critical enabler as a tech hub for its expansion. Edisn’s proprietary, patent-pending computer vision AI tech has the ability to extract real-time information from live video enabling the identification of athletes, brands, scorecards, plays, and actions at a frame level from live video in real-time.
It can be done across multiple sports and even go beyond sports to entertainment, music, and news content. This provides Fubo’s streaming platform with rich, contextual data which can be leveraged to create amazing interactive experiences for Fubo’s subscribers as well as monetizable features for advertisers.
FuboTV plans to hire data engineers, product managers, and design directors, among other positions, in the coming months. The company expects to grow its local headcount in Bangalore by up to 400%.
The hiring announcement is welcome news in India and comes at a time when whispers of a slow global economy loom. Their focus now is to expand their Bangalore office and tap into local engineering talent. Working at Fubo offers an opportunity to transform how consumers watch and engage with live TV - making it an exciting time to join FuboTV India.
