Microsoft is to open a new research and development centre in Dublin and create 100 new IT jobs over two years...
in the process.
The centre is now recruiting for software engineers who will work on projects including Microsoft’s next major version of Windows, codenamed Longhorn, and the company’s development work on digital TV projects.
Development staff will collaborate with teams at Microsoft R&D centres at Denmark, India and China.
Microsoft has had operations in Ireland for 20 years, and the new centre is part of the estimated $6.1bn (£3.38bn) the company will spend on R&D in the current financial year.
