Yes, that's right. We're delighted to announce that we've expanded our Mumbai engineering office, increasing our workforce to 120 engineers since January, with 30 more engineering hires planned, bringing the total team in India to 680 people!
“Since the extensive upgrade to our industry-leading NOC in June 2013, we continue to expand and advance our engineering talent as well as our SaaS operations to ensure MSPs can quickly realize greater efficiencies and improved profit margins. These advances reflect the company's commitment to help MSP partners lower labor costs by not adding technicians and increase support services to drive improvements in operational efficiency." ~ Michael George, CEO at Continuum~
What's more? Due to our rapid growth, Continuum signed a lease for an additional 19,000 square feet of office space, now occupying 46,000 square feet in the Times Square building. Along with our engineering team, you can find our Network Operations Center (NOC), hard at work monitoring your half a million servers, desktops and mobile devices.
