CHENNAI, India (July 7, 2022) —TaskUs (Nasdaq: TASK), a provider of outsourced digital services and next-generation customer experience to fast-growing technology companies, signed on Monday a Memorandum of Understanding with the Government of Tamil Nadu to pursue plans of setting up a Technology Center of Excellence for its shared services in Chennai.

The partnership was formalized through a signing ceremony at the Taj Coromandel, Chennai. Chief Finance Officer Balaji Sekar and Senior Vice President of Operations Sapna Bhambani represented TaskUs, while the government of Tamil Nadu was represented by Pooja Kulkarni, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Guidance, the nodal agency for investment promotion and facilitation. The ceremony was presided over by Chief Minister Mr. M.K. Stalin.

TaskUs’ project will employ around 150 people to start within the new facility, remaining true to its commitment to providing jobs and career growth opportunities to Indians. Given the tangible economic and social benefits related to the project, the government of Tamil Nadu assured that they will provide the necessary infrastructural support and regulatory facilitation.

“The government of Tamil Nadu is delighted that TaskUs has chosen Chennai as the location for adding technology and back-office capabilities to support their growth in India and worldwide. TaskUs is among the fastest-growing companies in its industry and will bring a number of jobs across different functions including tech and finance to the city and state,” said Tamil Nadu Industries Minister Thangam Thennarasu

Ever since TaskUs came to the country in 2019, the company has always prioritized serving the Indian market through continuous improvement of its workplace culture, perks and benefits, and facilities. This contributed to India being TaskUs’ fastest-growing market in the company’s history.

“Needless to say, it has been an amazing three years with India so far, and we look forward to all the ridiculously good things we will be able to experience here. After all, India’s culture heavily resonates with ours; it is highly diverse, eccentric, and ever-innovating,” said TaskUs’ Bhambani. “With this new venture in Chennai, as well as the recent launch of our new sites in Gurugram and Mohali, we hope to further expand the TaskUs’ ridiculously amazing culture across India.”

TaskUs currently has three sites in India. Since the launch of its first site in Indore in 2019, the company has grown to 6,000 employees as of December 2021, making India the fastest-growing location in TaskUs’ history.
