KOLKATA: Disney+ Hotstar has announced over 250 job openings across different levels and verticals to drive its next phase of rapid growth and transformation. The streaming platform plans to recruit multifaceted talent right from engineers to marketers and consumer growth personnel across client platforms, personalisation of video content, payments, and subscriptions, it said on Thursday.

The platform provides diversified entertainment offerings to its fast-expanding subscriber base including thousands of hours of movies and television, across international and local titles.

“Our commitment to expanding our workforce reflects our confidence in India’s immense growth potential as we seek to create engaging content for the next billion digital viewers," said Disney+ Hotstar president & head Sunil Rayan. "In these disruptive times, we are keen to create opportunities for talent to thrive in an environment built on the core values of diversity and inclusion.”

Disney+ Hotstar was among the strongest contributors to net subscriber additions, making up approximately one-third of the total Disney+ subscriber base. The company continues to rapidly expand its streaming service in the APAC region. Post the India launch, Disney+ Hotstar was made available in Indonesia, followed by Malaysia to have access to its massive content offering on the platform.

“Disney+ Hotstar provides an opportunity to work with the best minds in the business, offering multiple specializations under one team. It not only enables engineers to deliver top-quality entertainment to millions of customers but also hone their skills in video, machine learning, personalization, payments, subscription, identity, security and fraud and an array of client platforms,” it said in a release.

The app has notched over 400 million downloads, and also secured top spots on the Google Play Store as well as the Apple App Store.
