Infosys to hire over 2,100 in US
New Delhi: Infosys, India's second-largest information technology (IT) services company, is looking to hire about 2,100 people in the US over the next 12 months.
The company would add 1,500 across verticals such as consulting, sales and delivery functions by March 2015. Infosys would also recruit 600 graduates and postgraduates from US universities over the next one year.
Like most rivals, India's second biggest IT services provider gets close to 60 per cent of its total revenue from the US and believes the recruitment will help it support the growth of its business.
“With this programme, Infosys will bolster its expertise in client relationship management, consulting and technical delivery,” the company said in a statement issued late in the evening on Wednesday. “The addition of these employees will help Infosys provide its clients local market insights, industry-leading technology expertise, and timely responsiveness to critical issues.”
Around 300 management and technology graduates that the company plans to hire will work across multiple technology domains including digital, big data, analytics and cloud. Also, up to 180 graduates will be recruited into the Infosys consulting practice in the United States.
