Infosys, the global IT company, has announced a multi-year partnership with the State of Rhode Island to establish an Infosys Design and Innovation Hub. Infosys will also hire 500 American workers in Rhode Island over the next five years.
“We are excited to welcome Infosys to Rhode Island,” said Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo. “Because of our investments in higher education and job training at CCRI and other institutions across the state, Rhode Islanders are well-equipped and well-prepared to compete for these good-paying jobs. Infosys joins a growing local market of innovative, advanced industry companies that have chosen to plant a flag in Rhode Island.”
“The partnership with Rhode Island marks another important step forward for Infosys in the United States. The state’s educational institutions, design-rich environment, and economic development tools, positioned Rhode Island competitively for this type of specialist partnership,” said Ravi Kumar, President, Infosys. “This will enhance our ability to provide design-driven, digital technologies across the country and enable breakthrough innovations at the intersection of industry and design for our clients.”
Earlier this year, Infosys committed to hiring 10,000 American workers over the next two years. The company is on target to hire toward that commitment and is investing in Technology and Innovation Hubs in Indianapolis, Indiana and Raleigh, North Carolina.
The Infosys announcement is a continuation of Infosys’ campaign to boost innovation in the United States, with new hires in Rhode Island that will include experienced designers, design architects, specialists in information design and technical experts to accelerate the digital transformation of Infosys’ clients in Rhode Island and beyond.
