The company now has about 400 software engineers in China, including 300 in its main campus in Hangzhou, and another 50 each in Shanghai and Beijing, where it is preparing to fill major new facilities, said V Rajanna, General Manager of Tata Information Technology (Shanghai) Co Ltd.
"Here every year we are going to double," Rajanna said in an interview at the company's China base in this picturesque city about two hours drive from Shanghai.
"If I grow 100 per cent this year I can hit 800. Next year I can hit 1,600."
