Jolla has expressed interest in hiring ex-Nokia employees laid-off by Microsoft in its infamous “Summer cleaning”. Jolla’s top management and most of the workforce have similar ex-Nokia background and it will be a really welcome move.
“What comes to the Microsoft job cuts: majority of our employees have a Nokia background, and we are always interested in new talent,” Jolla Head of Communications Juhani Lassila told PTI in an email query in this regard.
And it’s not only Jolla, but Nokia also is eying or may have already hired some of the ex-Nokia employees working on Nokia X platform, which Microsoft has also planned to kill in 18 months time. It will be perhaps “back home” for those who will be hired.
@UrsaBerlin indeed. My own Nokia Z Launcher team could use some of these ex-Nokians with deep Android experience
