PUNE, India, March 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PubMatic (Nasdaq: PUBM), an independent technology company delivering digital advertising’s supply chain of the future, today announced it intends to make major investments in its platform and engineering team to drive ongoing market share gains, as it opens a new engineering hub in Pune.

The company owns and operates its own network, software and hardware, with eight data centres globally, setting it apart from many of its competitors in the space.

PubMatic recently reported record revenue of USD $226.9 million for the 2021 fiscal year and marked the ninth consecutive year of profitability. This combination of durable, high growth revenue and profitability demonstrates the company’s strong foundation for continued investment.

PubMatic’s global infrastructure is supported by a 300-person engineering team, largely based out of Pune, who specialise in large scale, high-throughput distributed systems, analytics, machine learning, modern UI and API tech stacks. The platform processes 3.3 petabytes of data daily.

PubMatic will support its anticipated platform growth by significantly growing engineering headcount, with an expected doubling of the engineering team over the next 12-18 months. The company will accommodate the expanded team with a new engineering hub in Pune, that will house 800 employees in a hybrid office / remote work set up.
