Sony’s future engineers will focus on chips for IoT, automotive technologies
Sony plans to seize future business opportunities in IoT and the smart automotive business by bringing in new engineers to focus on the chip technologies which support them. The Japanese tech giant says that 40 percent of its new engineering hires in the next two years will be allocated to chip technologies, including image sensor research & development. Sony intends to hire 320 new engineers in 2019 and 2020, respectively. These figures only account for Japanese staff and do not relate to skilled staff hired abroad, but this increase from 250 hires in 2018 could help pivot the firm towards more profitable image sensing technologies.
