HMD has been on a roll this year. The company has managed to launch eight new smartphones in the past few months. It s all part of a strategy to once again become one of the leading smartphone brands in the world. But while the company has been focusing on the Asian and the European markets, its activities in US have more or less been limited. However, now it looks like HMD is planning to change that as a new post on LinkedIn suggests it to be growing its operations in US.

Collectively the job descriptions describe them to be working towards creating better online portfolio for the US market, and enhance sales and marketing activities in the country. In order to do that, the candidates are also said to be working alongside multiple partners, operators and retailers. The listing for the Technical Account Manager also states it to be the main point for working on variants and customization of products for the local market. All-in all, the three listings suggest HMD to be expanding its operations in the county.

The news surfaced a month ago, when the product’s support page was spotted on its Indian website.
