Samsung said it plans to hire about 1,000 engineers from IITs and leading engineering institutes to work on newer technologies at its R&D institutes throughout India at a time when tech giants are laying off thousands of employees across the globe.
The new workforce will work next year at Samsung R&D Institute-Bangalore (SRI-B), Samsung Semiconductor India Research in Bengaluru, Samsung R&D Institute-Noida, and Samsung R&D Institute-Delhi.
The new hires will work on cutting-edge technologies such as the internet of things (IoT), machine learning, image processing, cloud storage solutions, big data, business intelligence, predictive analysis, and system-on-a-chip (SoC), among others.
Samsung will recruit engineers from various streams, such as information technology, electronics, instrumentation, embedded systems, computer science and allied branches, and communication networks.
In addition, the company also plans to hire from fields such as mathematics, computing, and software engineering. This hiring season, Samsung R&D centers will employ around 200 engineers from IITs. They have also offered more than 400 pre-placement offers to students from the IITs and other leading institutions.
