About the Return to India Program

Rippling is launching an innovative program that allows engineers from the US to return to India. If you’re based in the US and have considered working in Bangalore (whether you’re looking for it to be permanent or for a certain period of time), we would love to hear from you. 

Rippling’s Bangalore office spans 30,000 sq ft, is centrally located and beautifully designed. We currently have 400+ employees in our Bangalore office. 

About Rippling

Rippling is the first way for businesses to manage all of their HR & IT—payroll, benefits, computers, apps, and more—in one unified workforce platform.

By connecting every business system to one source of truth for employee data, businesses can automate all of the manual work they normally need to do to make employee changes. Take onboarding, for example. With Rippling, you can just click a button and set up a new employees’ payroll, health insurance, work computer, and third-party apps—like Slack, Zoom, and Office 365—all within 90 seconds.

Based in San Francisco, CA, Rippling has raised $1.2B from the world’s top investors—including Kleiner Perkins, Founders Fund, Sequoia, Bedrock, and Greenoaks —and was named one of America’s best startup employers by Forbes (#12 out of 500).
