With only 15 employees, BlackBerry India’s head count is no more than just ‘another’ startup!

Posted By:

    Once a dominant player in the Indian market with tons of engineers is now no big than an upcoming startup in the IT industry. With only 15 employees heading the Indian operations, the fate of Blackberry has been dismal over the past few year.

    It wasn't so bad a year back though. Back in the time, last year the company had around 70 employees handling the Indian state of affairs for the Canadian company. During the span of a year the company has lost its Head of Indian operation of India, Sunil Lalvani who moved on to take over SoC maker Qualcomm's India Operations.

    Additionally the company lost many other top managers including likes of Advait Vaidya (Head of Product Management) and Sameer Bhatia (Director Sales and Distribution). Sameer now heads brand retail for reputed hard drive manufacturer Seagate Technology.

    BlackBerry was quick to replace Indian Head of Operations with Matthew Tonkin, but that alone couldn't stop the landslide in the staff count that the Canadian company was facing. Nevertheless BlackBerry is still putting up a brave front. Despite having only 15 employees under its belt BlackBerry mentioned that they are still committed to the Indian market.

This includes recruiting in those areas of our business that will drive growth in India."-BlackBerry Spokesman

    But a big question remains! How does the once large, Canadian company aiming to stay committed to the Indian market? Will they finally join the Android bandwagon? Apparently a recent leak suggest so.
