Global telecommunications giant AT&T has announced the opening of a new R&D center in Tel Aviv’s ToHA Tower, expanding on the already existing R&D center in Airport City.
The company plans to hire an additional 100 employees that will join the existing 500 workers at the R&D center in Airport City. They also said they want to significantly expand activities to cloud solutions.
Both centers will operate in a hybrid format, allowing employees to work from home a few days a week.
The two centers in Israel are part of the AT&T global R&D network, which includes additional centers in the United States. Nataly Kremer, VP Software Delivery Services at AT&T and General Manager of AT&T Israel, is responsible for around 1500 AT&T development personnel worldwide.
“The development center in Israel is responsible for driving innovative technologies for hundreds of millions of AT&T users around the globe, and leads strategic initiatives for the entire company”, Kremer said. “As part of the center’s growth and development process in the country, we are looking for quality team members who are as enthusiastic as we are about working with advanced technologies on a large scale”.
AT&T established its Israeli R&D center in 2007 following the acquisition of the Israeli start-up Interwise, which specialized in conference solutions for organizations. The AT&T R&D center in Israel is responsible for the development of software products in all the company’s strategic areas of activity, including 5G networks, digital solutions, advanced products for managing first responder systems worldwide – and now also cloud technologies.
