AliBaba offers helping hand to axed Nokia workers
It’s been a cat-and-mouse game between Microsoft and Nokia workers since the Windows PC giant acquired the former phone making heavyweight for $7.2 billion US dollars back in April.
Microsoft has been incessantly sacking former Nokia employees now left to it’s care even though the Redmond, Washington-headquartered company promised to take carry on those workers for at least one year before the acquisition was brokered.
Now, AliBaba, China’s largest e-commerce portal where people from all walks of life come to import Chinese-made electronic goods has offered a helping hand to some tiny (very tiny) percentage of about 4,700 Nokia Chinese workers that will soon be axed by MS.
13 jobs offers were listed under the subject “Nokia” where the e-commerce agency said it was looking for ex-Nokia engineers who will help the company finish up it’s mobile browser and YunOS operating system.
“Nokia is a great company. We recognize your outstanding contributions to the industry. We believe you have dreams. Alibaba is willing to provide a huge platform for talent that are going to leave [Nokia] to fulfill their dreams,” AliBaba posted.
