Microsoft’s Chief Scientist in R&D in Israel, Tomer Simon: “We will turn especially to the ultra-Orthodox and Arab populations in order to increase their relative share among the company’s employees.”

Speeches made yesterday at the annual high-tech conference of the Globes newspaper indicate that high-tech companies will invest resources to bring the ultra-Orthodox population into the field. The talk comes against the background of various professional training programs that are flourishing in the ultra-Orthodox sector around the high-tech world that is developing in huge strides and it seems that even the largest companies in the world understand the potential.

Tomer Simon, Microsoft’s Chief Scientist for Research and Development in Israel, spoke with Nevo Tablesi, Globes’ technology correspondent at the Globes Annual High-Tech Conference on Microsoft’s plan to double its workforce in Israel. “We will specifically appeal to the ultra-Orthodox and Arab populations to increase their relative share among the company’s employees. We help their technology trainings and work with the state to begin technology trainings in lower grades. There are 150,000 Israeli high-tech people who relocated abroad, even if we return only 10%. We solved the shortage of every person in Israeli high-tech. “

Simon also shared with the conference attendees what happened to Microsoft during the Corona plague: “Since March 2020, 170,000 Microsoft employees have moved to work from home. The development centers in Israel were actually the first to open, when we returned two weeks ago to work full time. Partly thanks to products The cyber that allows us to connect from anywhere in a safe way. “

Professions that are in demand today in the world of high-tech dodge development and software testing, allow those with experience in the field to earn high productivity and in a respectable manner, these are professions that many technology companies in the economy crave for quality personnel with experience in the field.

A Dodge software developer who studied in one of the ultra-Orthodox training tracks and gained two years of experience according to All Jobs data can earn over NIS 20,000. Or, for example, a software tester who studied and gained two years of experience according to All Jobs data can earn over NIS 15,000.

The momentum that the training tracks for the high-tech world are flourishing in the ultra-Orthodox sector strengthens the possibility that, in Simon’s words, the share of the ultra-Orthodox public will increase in the large high-tech companies in Israel.
