In a bid to further increase their presence in Nigeria nay Africa thereby empower partners and customers as they use Microsoft solutions in FinTech, AgriTech and OffGrid energy and other such fields important to the country and continent, Microsoft last week opened the first Nigerian site of its Africa Development Centre (ADC).

The centre, which is Microsoft’s seventh globally, is recruiting world-class African engineering talent to develop innovative solutions that span the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge.

Phil Spencer, executive vice president at Microsoft and executive sponsor of the ADC said “the ADC will be unlike any other existing investment on the continent. It will help us better listen to our customers, develop locally and scale for global impact. Beyond that, it’s an opportunity to engage more with local partners, academia, governments and developers – driving impact and innovation in sectors important to Africa.”

For the ADC and through an ADC website already opened for applications, Microsoft is seeking engineering talents in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and mixed reality. With the initial team of engineers already starting work, the ADC intends to recruit 100 full-time engineers by the end of 2019 – expanding to 500 across the two sites by 2023. To support the development of the required skills, Microsoft is also partnering with local universities to create a modern intelligent edge and cloud curriculum, unique to Africa.

Graduates from top Nigerian engineering universities will have access to the ADC to build relevant and meaningful careers in data science, AI, mixed reality, application development and more.
