Following the recent news that Google is creating a Centre of Excellence for Cybersecurity in Malaga city, another technology company, Dekra, has now announced that it plans to set up a Global Information Technologies Hub at its facility on the Andalusian Technology Park (PTA), with 100 professionals working on R+D+i.
Dekra's connection with Malaga began in 2015 when it bought local firm AT4 Wireless. More than 280 people currently work at its premises on the PTA, and it is considering building a centre of its own there in the near future.
The new hub will incorporate two divisions which already exist at Dekra Malaga and employ 80 people (Service Division Product Testing and Dekra Digital), and two new teams: one working on digital platforms and the other on software development, for which 20 new staff will be recruited.
"Malaga is an intelligent choice because of its competitive market conditions, source of local talent and technological ecosystem, which includes very good universities, a considerable number of technology companies and it's a great place to live, so we can attract new talent," says Sean Davidson, Dekra's director of Digital Platforms and Development Centres.
