Network access solutions developer RAD today inaugurated its new Rad Negev R&D center at Beersheva High Tech Park at an investment of NIS 110 million. The center has hired 30 software engineers, and plans to hire 20 more by the end of the year. After three years, the center will employ up to 90 engineers from the Beersheva area. The new center, established in collaboration with the Office of the Chief Scientist, will develop programmable networks.
RAD says that the rapid pace of hiring is intended to boost the company's development as telecommunications switch to virtualization solutions for software networks and network apps.
"Our objective is to hire skilled developers in Beersheva and its environs, such as graduates of Ben Gurion University of the Negev and colleges in the region, and to promote high tech in the periphery," said RAD CEO Dror Bin. "We are proud to take the lead in fostering high-quality human capital in the region for everyone's benefit."
