[Jobs roundup] Join the Indian video content platforms with these vacancies

The recent ban on Chinese apps has brought a focus on Indian video content platforms and startups in general. If you wish to work in these startups, here are a few job openings for you.

Over the last two years, along with the popular Chinese short-form video app TikTok, several Indian language content apps have gained popularity in the country. With over 530 million internet users, India has the second-largest internet user base in the world today.  The growing penetration of internet in the rural pockets of India has contributed to the consumption of these content in regional languages.

Many video platforms, today, have shifted to offering their content in the regional languages, thus getting ready for the new digital India.

In the backdrop of the current face-off between Indian and Chinese troops along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh, the Indian government on Monday banned 59 Chinese apps.

While this meant forbidding the use of some popular apps such as TikTok, Helo, and WeChat, it has brought the focus on to some 'Swadeshi' or homegrown Indian apps.

If you wish to work with the new-age video content platforms, these job openings may help you.
