Pune, Maharashtra, India:Courion Corporation, the leader in identity and access management for access risk, held a press conference today announcing its plans for expansion in India at their Pune office. In response to the company’s global growth and rapid market adoption of identity and access management (IAM) technology, the company plans to significantly expand its staff in 2012.
At the press conference Dave Fowler, Chief Operating Officer at Courion Corporation said, “Identity and access management market growth has presented the opportunity for Courion to leverage talent in India to build a global organisation. The successful hiring and unprecedented retention we have experience already reinforces the rich talent pool available, which will continue to be an asset to Courion as we grow.”
Courion is looking for candidates who are technically strong, inquisitive and have a passion to learn new things on the job. This is critical to their success because Courion keeps innovating. Newly appointed candidates have an initial training period, but very soon they are put into the mainstream work so they get exposed to the Courion’s leading edge security technology and products very quickly. This provides a faster learning process for new employees. Courion finds it extremely important to make sure that new hires are properly ramped up and trained. Additionally, Courion plans to launch an internship program for college students and recent graduates who are interested in learning more about working for a cutting-edge technology company.
Shishir Khedkar, Director of India Operations for Courion said, “What’s exciting about Courion’s expansion in India at the Pune office is that oftentimes candidates are looking for a job and what Courion offers is a career. The company offers growth in responsibility, the opportunity to learn new technology and develop domain expertise in a market that will only become larger and more complex.”
He further said, “We want candidates who will solve complicated problems that they have not come across before. We’ll work with University of Pune and other local universities to identify talent that will match the Courion culture and its educational requirements. Courion is doing something radical and we need folks who can think creatively and solve problems that we may encounter during this journey.”
Courion opened its India Technology Centre, Courion IT Private Ltd, in June 2009 to complement its US-based research, development, professional services and customer support capabilities.
