DYSON OF UK TO OPEN SOFTWARE LAB IN PH TO CREATE 400 JOBS
British technology company Dyson Ltd. is planning to put up a new dedicated software laboratory in the Philippines as part of its £2.75-billion investment plan in new technologies in the next five years.
In a virtual event, Dyson chief operating officer Scott Maguire announced the tech firm’s plan to create a new dedicated software hub in Alabang.
The software hub is seen to create 400 job opportunities for highly-skilled software engineers in the Philippines over the next three years.
Maguire said the new center builds on Dyson’s existing engineering team in the Philippines and its advanced manufacturing facilities in Calamba, Laguna, established in 2016, which employs 600 people and produces 13 million “Dyson Hyperdymium” motors a year.
The software lab in the Philippines will form part of Dyson’s global Research, Design and Development team, which spans USA, UK, Shanghai, Singapore and Malaysia.
