Norway’s Kongsberg to add software headcount in India
‘Staff strength to increase 50% annually in the coming years’
Kongsberg Software & Services, a subsidiary of Norway-based Kongsberg Digital ASA, plans to hire more engineers at its facility in Bengaluru, said Hege Skryseth, EVP of Kongsberg and president of Kongsberg Digital.
“Currently, we have 130 employees in Bangalore,” Ms. Hege said. “With so much in business… we need more people. If you look back one year, we had almost increased the workforce strength by 50% and we will continue to do so for the years to come.”
Parent company Kongsberg Gruppen ASA is into three areas — maritime, defence and aerospace, and digital. The digital arm has developed a platform called “Kognifai,” an app store for industries and domains in which the group operates.
“It is an open ecosystem which allows… customers and partners to… take full advantage of what is happening in digitalisation across industries and also to make sure that they are able to do the transformation.”
