NNG expects to make 90 more hires this year

Pharma

Hungarian firm NNG, the developer of world renowned iGO Navigation, is planning to make 90 more hires this year, exceeding the total number of 900 employees, an announcement published on Friday by the company reveals.

The announcement added that since 2013, the company’s headcount has been increasing by 20-25% on a yearly basis, which means more than 200 hires. NNG’s strategy, the announcement adds, is to continue to focus on innovation, and expand both its revenue and its headcount in the future.

The increase in staff in the past few years is chiefly due to the dynamic expansion of the firm. NNG recently opened offices in Japan and the United States, and a development center in Szeged. Despite its expansions abroad, the company is committed to keeping its development team in Hungary, and to continue recruiting Hungarian professionals for such jobs, however, this has posed a big challenge for the company.

“The greatest challenge for NNG lately has been recruiting, as the firm has been expanding at an incredible pace,” Andrea Magyari, NNG’s head of HR, said. “An innovative mindset is of prime importance in our operations, therefore, beyond professionalism, innovative thinking is an important characteristic of our future employees,” she added.
