Infosys on Wednesday has announced that it will open its next Technology and Innovation Hub in the State of Texas and hire 500 American workers in the state by 2020. The Hub will be located in Richardson, Texas and have a special focus on the telecommunications, retail and banking sectors.
The Texas Technology and Innovation Hub represents a key milestone in Infosys’ digital transformation campaign for the Americas and builds upon its May 2017 announcement to hire 10,000 American workers by 2019. Infosys has hired over 6,200 American workers since May 2017.
“We are excited to announce the expansion of our presence in Texas, which is another important step in our continued investment in driving digital transformation for American businesses,” said Pravin Rao, COO, Infosys. “Digital is rapidly changing every industry, and our Hubs will allow us to co-locate, co-innovate and co-create alongside our clients.”
“Infosys’ expanded investment in Texas is fantastic news for our state and will provide Texans with the training and skills they need to compete in today’s technology-driven economy,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “Every Texan should have the opportunity to advance economically, and we thank Infosys for helping even more Texans become part of the workforce for the future.”
“Texas’ world-class educational institutions are key to Infosys’ workforce development efforts,” said Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys. “Our investment in Texas will further improve our ability to serve clients by broadening the STEM talent pipeline here and provide training for the specialist skills that our clients need.”
