GE to hire 1,000 techies for digital hub in Bengaluru

IANS  |  Bengaluru 

US multinational General Electric (GE) on Wednesday said it will hire about 1,000 techies to ramp up technology workforce at its new hub here.

"We will add 1,000 and software professionals over the next two years to ramp up the headcount to 2,500 from 1,500 at present and accelerate the transformation for industry," GE's arm said in a statement here.

As the GE Digital's largest facility worldwide in the Tech Park at Whitefield in the city's eastern suburb, the 2-lakh square feet hub will deliver solutions on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform to GE's customers to drive their productivity.

"The hub is a centre for co-creating industrial software and analytics solutions with customers and experts, aimed at solving complex business problems," asserted the statement.

GE's distributed operating system Predix helps customers harness the power of the IIoT and contribute to its goal of achieving $1 billion in productivity by 2020.

"Our global hubs are at the core of transformation into a top industrial firm. We will bring the best and brightest into our new facility to help us in our journey, said Jim Fowler, GE's Chief Information Officer, on the occasion.

For the US-based behemoth, is one of the six key locations the world over, as the tech city is in line with its business strategy.

"As talent is our priority in advancing outcomes, we are keen to harness more of it, specialised in data sciences, analytics product development space," noted Fowler.

Admitting that GE was looking to hire talent to fit into its lean and agile culture, GE's Group CIO Anthony Thomas said for the people willing to make an impact in technology intensive industries, the 124-year-old astart-up' was the place to be.

The India hub is part of GE's network of global locations at San Ramon in California; Detroit in Michigan; New Orleans in Louisiana; at Glen Allen in Virginia (all in the US), at Riyadh in Saudi Arabia and at Budapest in Hungary.

By pairing technology with domain expertise across industries like aviation, energy, healthcare and transportation, GE is transforming the industry with software-defined machines and solutions that are connected, responsive and predictive," added the statement.

GE's Predix-based software and solutions are set to deliver $6 billion in incremental revenue this year and it expects to become a $15-billion software business by 2020.
