OnePlus recently expressed its interest in India and now it has taken an initiative by putting a job listing on its website for a visionary to help them sail through Indian Market. Yes, OnePlus is looking for General Manager, India which marks the first step towards Company’s India operation.
The listing states, “We’ve seen tremendous interest from India in the OnePlus One, but to enter the market we’ll need the help of a local visionary. You will be the sun, the light that leads OnePlus into the Indian market; the centre of orbit for all projects, operations, and service; the ambassador that spreads the OnePlus brand across India like a wildfire.”
The company has also noted that they have been working hard behind the scene to understand and meet high expectations and demands of Indian consumers. Apart from Hindi and English, the Job requires fluency in Tamil as well, which hints towards strong OnePlus interest in Southern India.
OnePlus One is readily available in China, but you need an invite to buy it in other regions. In India, the company is most likely to adopt an online retail model and will hopefully try to cash in on shortcomings of Xiaomi. Since One Plus has just started hiring, we don’t expect the smartphone to go official till 2015.
