FIEC (Ficosa India Engineering Centre), Ficosa’s technology hub in India, a software engineering centre, is planning to grow its workforce by 18% in 2023 to 112 employees.
FIEC expects to end this year with 95 employees, 84% of whom will work in R&D and 16% in support functions.
Daniel Muñoz, head of FIEC, says: “India is a great hub of technological talent, and at FIEC we are working to boost the local ecosystem and accelerate the transition to the mobility of the future, with a focus on innovation and sustainability.”
One of FIEC’s objectives is to promote and encourage female talent. With this in mind, 29% of the centre’s employees are women.
Spain based Ficosa says FIEC has implemented a wide range of projects and delivered technological solutions that are at the forefront of innovation. Key initiatives include projects to develop new technologies for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
