Bitish technology company Dyson is set to hire 400 highly-skilled software engineers for its new hub in Manila which will rise in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
The new hub is part of the company’s 2.75 billion pounds investment in the country for the next five years.
“The Philippines is home to bright, young engineers who share Dyson’s ambition to develop technologies for the future. Dyson has been growing in the Philippines for this reason and it is a nation that clearly celebrates both engineers and technology,” said Scott Maguire, Dyson’s Chief Operating Officer in a statement.
The company vows to continue hiring more Filipinos and join their ranks.
“We will continue to invest in the Philippines and look forward to having more highly skilled Filipino engineers join our ranks to develop and manufacture exciting new technologies for the future, which will be used all around the world,” Maguire added.
Roles in the software lab will include embedded software engineers, automation test engineers, scrum masters, product owners, program managers, release train engineers, and team leaders.
“These engineers will have experience with a range of software coding languages, including real time embedded ‘C’. They will also have good knowledge of microcontrollers and systems on chip (SoC) processors, and be familiar with embedded development tools,” the statement added.
The company has a manufacturing facility in Calamba, Laguna with 600 workers and produces 13 million Dyson motors every year.
The company founded by James Dyson includes hair care, hand driers and air purifiers, as well as vacuums, which now come battery powered.
