Infosys To Hire 2,000 People In US By Year-end

Country's second largest software firm Infosys today said it plans to hire close to 2,000 people in the US by the end of this year.

Infosys has also announced expansion of its US operations by setting up a new 125-seater centre in Wisconsin to provide end-to-end technology, consulting and systems integration services. The centre will also house a training center.

With this, Infosys now has 18 facilities in the US and is reflective of the commitment it has to local job creation, Infosys said.

The centre in Wisconsin is a part of Infosys' engagement with American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson.

Infosys provides a range of technology services including applications management, infrastructure support and hosting services.

The new Wisconsin delivery center initially will house 125 seats, including the positions expected to migrate from Harley-Davidson, Infosys said.

The new Wisconsin delivery center will be operational later this year. Infosys also plans to expand this site in the near future, establishing centers of excellence for specific domain and technology areas.

Infosys plans to hire 35,000 people globally this fiscal, including 13,000 for its BPO operations
