RIM to create 200 jobs with new datacenter

By on May 28, 2009, 4:20 PM
As most companies are scrambling to cut jobs in the midst of a harsh financial atmosphere, Research in Motion is looking to create them. The telecommunications company is looking to construct a datacenter in the Atlanta area, on 40 acres near Alpharetta’s North Point Mall.

In conjunction with the new facility, they will hire up to 200 people, including a technical staff to work on next-generation BlackBerry devices. On their website’s “Careers” section, quite a few positions can be found for the Atlanta and Alpharetta area, for those that are interested.

Not long ago, the company posted a 26% rise in fourth-quarter net profit to $518.3 million, on revenue up 83% at $3.5 billion. They concluded the fiscal year with a 46% increase in net income to $1.9 billion, on revenue up 84% at $11.1 billion. RIM's recent success has mostly been attributed to the high sales figures of their flagship BlackBerry handset series.
