SINGAPORE – Some of the below tech companies will be hiring more workers in 2022, thereby helping to propel demand in the city-state’s office market, reported the Vulcan Post on Thursday morning (23 December, SGT).
In April 2021, Dyson announced that it intends to recruit at least 250 more scientists and engineers in Singapore in the next 5 years as part of its S$5.1 billion worldwide investment in future technology.
Back then, the maker of the bagless vacuum cleaner has around 700 scientists and engineers working for its Singapore team of 1,400 people.

Measuring 110,000 sq ft, Dyson’s new HQ will contain 3 floors of offices and laboratories, plus a heritage gallery inside one of the former power plant’s original chimneys.
In October 2021, the e-commerce giant showed its new office here at Asia Square to the public. Dubbed as SIN16, the new workplace is designed to improve agile working, learning, and teamwork.

At present, the gaming hardware maker is aggressively hiring here after the unveiling of its new S$100 million headquarters for Southeast Asia at one-north business park in November 2021.
With a floor area of about 207,743 sq ft, the 7-level Razer building contains its office, Singapore’s first RazerStore, and the company’s first F&B concept RazerCafe, where drinks are made and served by an in-house robotic barista.
