HYDERABAD: IT player OpenText has opened its new development centre spread over 1.9 lakh sq ft in the city’s Financial District with a capacity to seat around 1,500 techies.
The new centre will serve as a hub for the company’s engineering operations, the company said on Tuesday.
The company, which already has around 2,000 people in Hyderabad, has a total headcount of over 6,000 employees across Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai.

The new facility will also serve as a work base for the company’s current crop of interns and graduates,” it said.
The company pointed out that in Hyderabad OpenText has run an internship program since 2010 with approximately 40% of interns transitioning into full-time employees, creating significant job opportunities to aspiring graduates.
