Tech giant Microsoft is all set to raise curtains on its third Research and Development centre in India which will also bring thousands of job opportunities for engineers. Ahead of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s visit to the country, the US-based technology firm said: “The facility will open opportunities for thousands of engineers, with plans to expand to a full-fledged development centre, similar to IDC facilities in Bengaluru and Hyderabad,” Microsoft said in a statement on Monday. The centre will play a crucial role in Microsoft’s India’s expansion and growth story. However, Microsoft hasn’t divulged the details of the investment size for setting up the centre.
“We are excited to tap into the engineering talent available in this part of the country to create a truly pioneering organisation that will build innovative solutions for global impact,” Rajiv Kumar, managing director at Microsoft India Research and Development, said. The India Development Center will bring together Microsoft’s engineering teams from across various technology groups such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Research Group, Cloud and Enterprise Group, and Experience & Devices Group, according to the company’s statement.
