Intel has today announced that in order to expand its European presence, the company has established a Software Development Center in Romania. The center focus on creating new software solutions for Intel-based devices like smartphones, smart TVs and in-vehicle infortainment systems.
This multi-million Euro investment will employ two dozen software R&D professionals working on the MeeGo platform.
“Intel has a long standing history in microprocessor development and manufacturing. In transforming Intel into to a computing company we need the best software talent to deliver on our vision,” said RenÃ©e James, Intel Senior Vice President and General Manager, Software and Services Group. “Romania is an ideal location for software engineering talent due to a rich university environment, and close proximity to customers and ecosystem partners.”
The center is made up of 23 labs employing more than 100 R&D professionals. Intel expects the workforce to grow by three to four times as it diversifies its activity.
