Technology firm Infosys will bring 1,000 new tech jobs to Harford as well as create a $21 million hub for the development of technologies to support the health care and manufacturing industries according to the Hartford Courant.

Infosys is a publicly traded company worth over 34 billion dollars with more than 200,000 employees worldwide dedicated to creating technology systems and consulting for all kinds of industries.

The hiring will take place throughout the next four years says Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s office, and the positions should pay an average of $70,000 yearly.
