Bengaluru-headquartered new-age technology startup Avataar.me has doubled its employees in India amid increased demand for augmented reality (AR) applications in retail and e-commerce sectors.
The company said it plans to hire 100 employees more by the end of this year. The tech startup now employs more than 50 people, across its development centre in Bengaluru and sales offices in San Francisco and Gurugram.
Avataar.me said it plans to expand its sales presence to the UK, North Asia and Southeast Asia in the coming few months.
“As a leader in AR/VR (augmented reality/virtual reality), we focus on creating new formats in lifesize 3D and AR to upgrade pre-purchase product evaluation experience across categories, helping bridge the online-offline experience gap for consumers,” Sravanth Aluru, CEO and co-founder of Avataar.me, said in a media statement issued on Monday.
Founded by Sravanth Aluru, Gaurav Baid and Mayank Tiwari in 2014, Avataar.me provides life-size 3D/AR solutions to industry leading brand owners, original equipment manufacturers and e-commerce players.
