Data science and analytics agency Indus Insights is expanding its US presence by opening a delivery center in Los Angeles. The Company has also hired Rajit Kavindran to join its management ranks. Rajit is joining Indus Insights as a Senior Director and will be leading the Company’s US offices.
Indus Insights has been experiencing phenomenal growth, both in terms of its Clientele and the size of its Data Scientist team. The Company has a track record of creating value for its Clients by combining sophisticated Machine Learning techniques with a deep expertise in the financial services sector. The Company’s India operations were recently in the news for being the largest start-up recruiter at some of the most renowned engineering colleges in the country. The opening up of US based delivery centers is another step in the rapid growth of the Company.
“We are operating at the intersection of two big revolutions – FinTech and Machine Learning,” said Saurabh Sharma, Chief Executive Officer of Indus Insights. “There is a profound change happening to how the financial needs of consumers & small businesses are met. At the same time, the use of Machine Learning and large volumes of data is allowing firms to offer competitive products to more customers and with a better customer experience. These changes are leading to an increasing demand for our services. In order to add even more value to our Clients and further support their innovation agenda, we are opening offices closer to our Clients and building our team in the US. I am delighted to welcome Rajit to lead our US operations. I have known Rajit for more than a decade and have immense faith in his expertise of the sector, his drive towards tangible value creation, and his alignment with our culture & ethics. I also take great joy in announcing the opening of our first US delivery office in LA in May, with a second office coming up on the East Coast soon.”
“I am excited to join Indus Insights and be part of the growth journey at the company” added Rajit Kavindran, “In the last few years I have watched Indus Insights grow from a startup to a leading provider of advanced analytics services to clients in the financial services space. Joining Saurabh and the team at Indus is a great opportunity, and I look forward to utilizing my experience in the next growth phase at Indus as we serve our growing clientele and building the US offices.”
