Microsoft announced the opening of its first Africa Development Centre in Nigeria in May of 2019.
Software engineering solutions are intended to be delivered to Africa from the facility which has been built in tandem with one in Nairobi, Kenya.
The company’s goal is to recruit excellent technical talent and give opportunities to work on cutting-edge technologies fit for Kenya, Nigeria, and the rest of the globe, Microsoft Corporate Vice President Michael Fortin stated.
Engineers may enjoy working from their home nations while remaining connected to a worldwide engineering and development organisation, he added.
The hub is the first in Africa and is yet another indicator of Africa’s rising prominence as a global talent centre.
