QuEST Global, a global Product Engineering Services company, has announced its plans to expand operations in Kerala and hire more than 3,000 engineers in the next two years.

The company also said that the new hires will be a mix of both, freshers and laterals.

By increasing the number of employees in the centre, the company aims to increase its focus on embedded software and digital technologies involving cloud, data engineering, data science, and IoT.
