Nasdaq-listed F5 Establishes Engineering Centre In B’luru, Hires 150
Nasdaq-listed technology company F5 inaugurated its new engineering centre in Bengaluru and has hired about 150 employees for the office in its expansion efforts.
The Bengaluru development centre is spread across 50,000 square feet with seating capacity for 250 employees and will play a pivotal role in driving research, development and product innovation for F5 as the company expands its portfolio of multi-cloud application security and delivery solutions.
The opening of this centre will create opportunities for talented engineers focusing on cutting edge technologies and meeting evolving customer need, the company said in a statement.
The engineering centre was inaugurated by F5 President and Chief Executive Officer François Locoh-Donou and is an expansion to the current engineering centre in Hyderabad which focuses on global product development and innovation for F5.
“India has a thriving technology ecosystem and benefits from strong public sector-led innovation through programs such as Digital India,” said François Locoh-Donou, President and CEO, F5.
The Settle-headquartered company has operated out of India for over two decades and its R&D centre in Hyderbad drives work aimed at enhancing its solution portfolio in conjunction with its other global engineering centres in the US and Israel. The new centre in Bengaluru will extend these capabilities and provide access to more talent and resources in India.
“The opening of our engineering center in Bengaluru will enable F5 to fully tap into local talent to help deliver innovative multi-cloud application solutions to our global customer base,” he added.
In April, F5 had announced that it was reducing the size of its team by 623 roles comprising 9 per cent of its workforce. This reduction also included roles in India apart from those in the US, Canada, Latin America, APCJ and more.
