The new recruits will fill a range of roles in software engineering, DevOps, hybrid cloud, agile delivery, technical product management, digital workplace, cybersecurity, IT architecture, innovation and service management.

To kick-start the recruitment drive, the company will host an online session for all tech professionals in the UAE on Monday, September 19 at 6pm.
