Intel: 10 years of activity on Romanian IT market

Intel, one of the biggest IT companies in the world, has announced the expansion of its operations and number of employees on the Romanian market simultaneously with the marking of ten years of presence in Romania as a hub for Southeast Europe.
In Romania Intel combines software research and development with offering the newest hardware technologies that lay at the basis of the IT industry. Intel is present in Romania since 2005 through a marketing and sales office. In 2010 the company expanded its presence on the local market by opening the Intel Romania Software Development Center, representing the biggest Intel investment in Romania. The center currently has more than 100 highly-qualified software engineers involved in the research and development of open source technologies and next generation computation solutions. Romania has the biggest R&D center of Windriver, a company bought by Intel in 2009 and currently activating as Intel’s independent subsidiary. At the same time, the R&D center in Bucharest is part of the Intel Labs Europe network that consists of 50 labs and over 4,000 R&D specialists.
The company currently has 400 employees in Romania and has announced it will continue to expand its presence in Romania by adding to the Intel Romania Software Development Center a new team of software engineers from its Datacenter Software Technologies division.
The new team of software engineers will work on optimizing the way applications are executed on servers based on Intel architecture.
“When we took the decision to expand on the local market with software operations we attracted an important investment towards Romania. We are pleased with Intel’s evolution in our country and we will continue to invest in the local market on the long term,” Monica Ene-Pietrosanu, Country Manager, Intel Romania Software Development Center, stated.
According to Monica Ene-Pietrosanu, in 2010 Intel announced its investment in the Intel Romania Software Development Center. The Bucharest-based R&D center which was officially opened in 2012 started out with approximately 20 employees responsible with the research and development of Open Source software, a team that grew rapidly.
The company officially established its operations in Romania in 2004, with the opening of the Sales and Marketing office responsible with the activities in Romania, Bulgaria and other Southeast European countries.
