Motorola looking to hire ex-BlackBerry engineers

Motorola wants BlackBerry's laid-off engineering talent, begins seeking possible hires in Kitchener-Waterloo, minutes from BlackBerry headquarters (NASDAQ:BBRY, NASDAQ:GOOG)

Motorola has opened an engineering hub right down the road from BlackBerry's global headquarters in Kitchener-Waterloo, Canada. This is an obvious move to quickly acquire some of the amazing engineering talent that BlackBerry will be laying off in the coming weeks.

While no specific mention of BlackBerry employees was made, Derek Philips, engineering director for Motorola Canada, said, "We're always looking for places where there's lots of opportunity for growth and it's not always easy to find places that have significant tech talent in a variety of areas, but especially mobile."

 

In my opinion, I feel that this is a good move for both Google/Motorola and those who worked at BlackBerry. The engineers will be able to find work in their field, and Motorola will be able to hire on some amazing talent who can help take their phones to the next level.
