The India-based tech giant that recently selected Indianapolis as its first American technology and innovation hub has announced its second U.S. site. Infosys (NYSE: INFY) says it will open its next hub in North Carolina and hire 2,000 workers there by 2021.
The effort is part of the consulting and technology services provider’s commitment to open four tech and innovation hubs in the U.S. and hire 10,000 workers over the next two years.
Infosys plans to invest nearly $9 million to occupy about 35,000 square feet of space in OneAmerica Tower downtown. The company expects to add about 100 jobs by the end of the year, with 400 more coming by the end of 2018. Indiana Secretary of Commerce Jim Schellinger says the state is pitching the company on an Indiana campus that would make the Indianapolis area the center of its United States operations.
Infosys provides consulting services in areas including artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud technology and big data.
