“In The War For Talent, Competition Has Never Been So Fierce”. A lot of companies are opening offices in Armenia. Great news for the Armenian Tech Ecosystem which is becoming an emerging global tech hub. The Silicon Valley of the Caucasus or as some might call it “Silicon Mountains”. Tech is here to stay and it’s only going to get bigger from here. With the inflow of fresh talent into the country, many big conglomerates are looking to open offices and hire the best talent before someone else does. Here are a few examples of companies recently opening offices or hiring remotely within the region 🚀:
NVIDIA is opening a new office in Armenia! Check what Rev Lebaredian, VP of Omniverse & Simulation Technology, shared during the TUMO HQ Session. They’ll be announcing a job fair event in Yerevan soon. Stay tuned!
