SugarBox - Head/Associate Director - Talent Acquisition (10-12 yrs)

Bangalore Job Code: 1106593

What is SugarBox? (

SugarBox is a first-of-its-kind platform in the world that empowers users without an internet connection to use Apps and enables Apps to work even in places with bad or no internet / network coverage.

We are working on making internet services more available, reliable, affordable, and contextual for everyone. Over the next 2 years, our goal is to transform the travel experience for 300 mn commuters monthly, unlocking over 2.5 billion hrs of digital consumption, where otherwise Apps don't work reliably, due to unstable or inexistent cellular connectivity.

How do we do it?

We install servers at key places of interest (POIs) where users access internet services (Public transport, Rural areas, Residential complexes, Corporate parks, Hotels, Educational institutes, Retail zones, F&B outlets, etc.) Sugar Box's patented technology then uses prediction algorithms to cache relevant data from partner Apps on each local server. In addition to this, the local server uses Edge computing to manage other technical requirements such as User registration, Personalization, Security, Ads & Payments. This server is then exposed to the consumer over a local Wi-Fi so that s/he is able to use the partner Apps without any dependence on internet connectivity.

What disruption are we creating?

- The Next Billion Users globally will be able to start using Digital Services without purchasing an internet connection!

- Unlock seamless digital access on-the-go, in villages & remote areas, where users are in a near captive environment (And courtesy of the lockdown, we have all experienced what being held captive does to digital consumption!)

- Even offline consumption can now be monetized - that means consumer will be served Ads & will be able to transact even without connectivity.

- At ubiquitous scale, Sugar Box will make the internet 200% faster and 50% cheaper
