According to Financial Post, the Canadian manufacturer of BlackBerry smartphones is currently in need of more than 1,250 new people to fill positions across the world, from the US to Australia. Most of the jobs, however, are available at RIM’s headquarters in Ontario, Canada, being related to product development and R&D departments.
The need for new employees most probably has a lot to do with the success of RIM’s latest handsets, like BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Pearl Flip and BlackBerry Storm.
In the third quarter of 2008, the Canadian company was the world’s second largest smartphone manufacturer, with almost 16% of the market share.
For the moment, RIM has about 10,000 employees – far less than giants like Nokia, for example, which employs 123,000 people.
