It's hard to believe that it's only been a year since we started our operations in India by way of the Automate acquisition. In that short amount of time, we are so proud of the progress we’ve made across all categories: customers, community, talent, and awareness.
While we’re excited to look back at what we’ve built, we are hyper-focused continuing to scale our Hyderabad site in the years to come.
Introducing our new leader, Uday Bhaskar
Today we are announcing that Uday has joined us as our Head of Engineering in India. Most recently, Uday managed Uber Eats engineering — and we are thrilled that he will bring his leadership and expertise of scaling teams and product lines to Notion.
Our long-term commitment to India
Last year we also saw our community come to life in India. Notion has been welcomed with open arms, and it has helped shape our growth and expansion throughout the nation. We have seen 5x growth in just two years, and we are proud of the events and community-led efforts that have taken a life of their own.
Yesterday, I hosted the maiden @NotionHQ India Bangalore community meetup!
Unbelievable community, with people travelling hours in the rain and traffic to attend this on a Saturday evening.
Great Notion discussions with Nachos & Cupcakes. Stay tuned for upcoming India events ;)
Celebrating our progress
On November 17 Notion India will be hosting a special evening at THUB, a startup incubator located in Hyderabad. We are inviting prospective talent, community influencers, and customers to join us for a fireside chat with our Chief Product Officer, Madhu Muthukumar, VP of Engineering, Michael Manapat and Head of Platform Engineering Ganesh Ramanarayanan. The discussion will focus on the growth of Notion, future of Notion India, and we would love for you to join us by RSVP’ing here.
We want to extend a special thank you to India for making us feel at home. We are excited for what the future holds and can’t wait to continue scaling our Hyderabad site!
