Description

The US software giant Microsoft plans to open a new research and development unit in Prague and to create up to 200 new posts within the next tree years. Microsoft wants to employ 80 people by the end of 2016. Job posts are open mainly for more experienced IT experts and graduates from technical universities.

The new centre will be part of the global development division Microsoft Dynamics CRM and will work with teams in the US, India, Denmark and Switzerland.

In 2014, the US software giant already established a software-development centre for Skype in the Czech capital, the biggest in Central Europe, which employs around 250 people.
