TikTok to hire 3,000 engineers globally

The Chinese short-form video platform is looking at expanding its already 1000-strong engineering team in the US as well as in Singapore, its main hub.


TikTok, the short-form video platform is one of the rare companies that is still hiring at a time when the tech sector is laying off people, globally. In fact, the short-form video hosting service owned by the Chinese company ByteDance is gearing to add about 3,000 engineers across its global offices. It is also looking at expanding the engineering team in the US, which is already 1,000 strong, as well as its workforce in Singapore.

The Company wishes to focus on its budding e-commerce team and also add more talent to its commercialisation team. The latter will work on ways to make the app more profitable.

Contract workers are being sought by the app to help monitor the quality and appropriateness of the videos or content. It requires people for its content-moderation hub in Dublin, Ireland, as per a report by The Wall Street Journal.

Though the Company is hiring, it is doing so at a cautious pace, keeping in mind the volatile economic environment, globally.

TikTok is also willing to hire people who have been recently asked to leave by Meta and Twitter that are competitors for TikTok.

Parent company, ByteDance hasn’t stopped hiring in China either. While some of the fresh hires are working on the TikTok short-video app, others are assigned the task of chip development.
