Tide, UK’s leading digital business financial platform has chosen India to set up its first global development centre, which is already up and running in the southern city of Hyderabad. The new centre will drive and support the technology needs of the fast growing venture which aims to become the world’s leading digital challenger in business banking services. Spread over 15000sft. The centre already has 70+ high-quality technology professionals working on cutting edge technologies.
Commenting on the new centre and the reason for choosing India, Guy Duncan, Global Chief Technology Officer, Tide UK, said, “With Tide witnessing exponential growth, we needed to look beyond the UK and Bulgaria (where we have a technology and support centre) as it was proving to be difficult to hire quality talent at the required pace. India seemed a natural choice as it offers two distinct and formidable advantages – it has among the world’s most vibrant, innovative and advanced fintech ecosystem and among the largest pool of high quality technology talent. It further helped that our senior leadership has extensive and positive experience in setting up offices and technology centres in India. We look forward to growing the centre further and expanding its role in Tide’s global strategy.”
