Airbnb is set to open a new technology hub in Bengaluru - a city that has become one of the world’s biggest technology capitals. The Bengaluru technology hub will aim to create local, skilled jobs, with plans for the center to cater to a few hundred people in the initial phases, followed by an expanded footprint in the future.

The opening of this new technology hub will provide jobs and career growth for talented locals, while also contributing to the region’s burgeoning reputation as a tech centre of excellence. “Our new Bengaluru hub will enable us to work with some of the brightest Tech talent in India while allowing Airbnb to continue to evolve our technical foundations and build truly exceptional experiences for guests and hosts on the platform,” said Ari Balogh, Airbnb’s Chief Technology Officer.
