GE speeds up growth for its software and digital resources in Romania and kicks off the recruitment campaign for GE Power’s Grid Software Solutions center in Bucharest.

The company intends to hire highly skilled IT specialists in the coming years. Available jobs range from middle to senior positions in technical leadership, software integration and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) software engineering.

“Our Software Solutions center plays a significant role in achieving GE’s mission to become a Top 10 software company in the following years,” stated Cristian Colteanu, President & CEO GE for Romania, Bulgaria and the Republic of Moldova. “As Romania is turning into the digital center for South Eastern Europe, digitalization has become a major asset for driving value and efficiency in the local energy industry.”

“We’re very excited about the accelerated growth of our Romanian SWS center, in a highly competitive, fast-growing IT market. Since 2015, we have hired over 100 people and are committed to keep the same pace and continue the recruitment of digital specialists over the next two years,” stated Silviu Cretean, Senior Services Director for GE’s Software Delivery Center in Bucharest.

Starting August 2017, employees will be welcomed in the center’s new state-of-the-art headquarters on Aviatorilor 8 – the most high-tech and sustainable office building in Romania. GE’s working space will cover around 3,000 sqm on the 1st and 3rd floors, and will benefit from all the building’s cutting-edge facilities – from electric car chargers, to showers and locker rooms, and over 200 parking spaces.
