Located in Porto Office Park, in the Boavista area, Maersk's new tech hub occupies one floor, with 850 square metres.
Maersk will open its technology hub in Porto next Monday, eight months after buying the Portuguese startup HUUB. The hub of the Danish logistics giant starts with 50 employees and wants to triple its team in a year. By 2023 it wants to have 150 employees. The value of the investment was not disclosed.
“It is an enormous pride to see a company like Maersk choose our city and our country to implement a technology hub, even more so knowing that HUUB’s acquisition was the significant driver of this movement. We have always felt the special talent of this city and its academy. We now have the responsibility to attract and keep this talent for the great objectives ahead of us”, says Tiago Paiva, former CEO of HUUB and now leader of one of Maersk’s main ecommerce products, quoted in a press release.
The space opens with 50 employees, but “company aims to triple that number by 2023.”
Located in Porto Office Park, in the Boavista area, the space occupies one floor, with 850 square metres. “The space is designed to be compatible with the best technological practices and of a hybrid regime,” official source tells People. “There is no obligation to be present in the office”, he clarifies when asked about the moulds of the work organisation model.
