Purchased by Amazon for $1 billion, startup Ring is ramping up its Ukrainian IT staff, the Kyiv Post reports. As seen on TV ads, Ring sells home security systems that allow home owners to see and communicate with visitors at their front doors. Boosted by the Amazon purchase in February, the California-based company employs 500 people at its Kyiv R&D center, which occupies the entire eighth floor of the Toronto Kyiv Business Center, near Olimpiiska Metro station. That staff level may double, Ring Ukraine COO Kira Rudik tells the Post. Amazon is believed to be developing the company to improve its package delivery service.
