nvidia logo NVIDIA Reaches 7,000 Employees, Wants (at least) 475 More

Yesterday we posted news about AMD hiring top talent with the focus on SOC (System-On-a-Chip) engineering team. We got an email from NVIDIA employee saying they're hiring too…

If you are in the business of creating and manufacturing great technology and products, there is no doubt that you need top people to make it happen. After publishing the news about AMD hiring top talent in order to deliver on the new product strategy, we got interested in how other companies are doing.

One of our readers got back to us and said that while AMD is hiring about 60 job positions (through LinkedIn), his company is hiring almost 500 people. Given that company was NVIDIA, we asked around and learned several interesting things.

First and foremost, the company just reached a 7,000 employee milestone. This is the first time in history of NVIDIA to have 7,000 employees at the same time and they want to hire at least additional 7%. At the time of writing, there are no less 475 job openings at NVIDIA on LinkedIn Jobs Search, with positions in marketing, engineering, support – the company is evenly hiring across the board and across continents.

Jobs are located in Santa Clara (California), Theale (UK), Shenzen (China), Moscow (Russia), Berlin, Taipei and many other locations. NVIDIA has offices in 20 countries, so its no wonder they need continuous influx of fresh brains. For example, here are the jobs which we consider most interesting:

Exascale Program Director, Santa Clara, CA – "NVIDIA is searching for a world-class Program Director for an exciting role helping NVIDIA deliver the next generation of supercomputing solutions. This position requires deep experience and expertise in the management of large and complex US government funded programs. "

If you are interested, head to LinkedIn Job Search page and see what you can find for yourself. If AMD or NVIDIA aren't your cup of tea, there is always… Intel or Apple. But don't expect big bucks at Apple, as our sources tend to say. At Apple, you cash out with your next job.
