Microsoft to recruit 2,500 new employees in Israel over the next four years
The corporation is planning to double the number of R&D employees, opening five new sites in the country, including in Beer Sheva, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Herzliya
Microsoft intends to more than double the number of employees in its research and development operation in Israel – from around 2,000 to 4,500 – over the next four years. Hundreds of open positions are currently being filled, from senior engineers to interns. Over the past 18 months, Microsoft’s R&D headcount in Israel grew by 30% to more than 2,000 people across sites in Herzliya, Haifa, Tel Aviv, and Nazareth.“The establishment of the new development sites, along with the recruitment of thousands of new employees in Israel, is proof of Microsoft’s commitment and confidence in our technological impact and talented workforce,” said Michal Braverman-Blumenstyk, Corporate Vice President and General Manager of Microsoft’s Israel R&D Center. “This expansion will help us grow, retain, and recruit the most talented people to build the most cutting-edge solutions. We want Microsoft to be accessible to any candidate no matter where they live, so establishing campuses in Jerusalem and Beer Sheva is especially significant."
