American Express plans to hire 1,500 tech workers this year, adding to the 3,600 it already brought on in 2022, Bloomberg reported Sept. 19.
About 60 percent of the employees will be based in the U.S., with the rest spread across India and Europe, according to the story. The hires will include data scientists, analysts and software engineers.
“It is without a doubt a challenging environment to recruit technical talent,” American Express CIO Ravi Radhakrishnan told the news outlet. “The war for talent is a true consideration.”
