A young Filipina, whose parents were also tech workers, found a job at a staffing company as a junior engineer.
But her life changed when her company went under.
She went back to her roots and enrolled in an online coding course to learn how to program.
Now, she works as a technical support engineer for a tech company in the country.
Lyneer, the Philippines’ largest online hiring platform, has a hiring manager and an HR department, according to CEO Robert Liao.
He said the company has hired nearly 600 engineers since March, and he expects to add 500 more employees this year.
It’s a big shift for a country where the job market is still in its early stages.
And it’s also an opportunity for Lyneer to bring its tech workers in to the Philippines, where there are less tech workers.
Lyndsey Rocha, a former tech employee, says the company is offering a better quality of life.
“We’ve seen a lot of people who come to us and say they want to come back, that they are leaving because of a lack of jobs, that it’s too hard, too expensive,” she said.
But she also says that the Philippines needs more tech talent and a skilled workforce, not less.
“I want people to come here, to work, to live and I want to make sure that they’re educated, that there’s opportunities, and I think that we are working hard to provide that,” Rochasaid.
“And so we’re not just looking for a few talented engineers, we’re looking for people who have the right skills and the right experience.”
She said the Filipinas’ tech companies are not making a profit because they are hiring new people, but because they’re trying to help their existing employees get the skills they need to succeed in the job marketplace.
“If they can give their people the skills, I think they’ll see a lot more people who want to be engineers,” she added.
The Philippines has a strong technology sector, but the government has not been making enough investments to keep up with the demand.
The country’s GDP per capita is just over $10,000, compared with more than $30,000 in the United States, according the World Bank.
The government is trying to diversify its economy away from oil and gas, which account for a large portion of the countrys economic growth.
The Philippines is now the fourth-largest oil exporter in the world, after China, the United Kingdom and India, according TOEFL, which ranks the countries.
It is also the second-largest exporter of renewable energy in the Asia Pacific region, after the United Arab Emirates.
It also ranks as the seventh-largest energy exporter globally.
The country is also trying to grow its economy by creating jobs, investing in infrastructure and building businesses.
Lynger has been a big supporter of these efforts, and Rochacasaid that the company does not pay workers minimum wage.
But she said the pay is a little better than her job at the company where she earned about $50,000 a year.
“In my case, I was paid more than that,” she explained.
“It’s not as bad as the salaries that I earned at the office, but it’s still a little higher than what I’m paid in the office.
But Lynger is paying its employees well, and they are taking on extra responsibility.”
They are the ones who are going to be in charge of the logistics, who are working on the infrastructure, who will be managing the business and marketing, they’re the ones that are going on the payroll, they are the people who are actually responsible for the logistics and the operations,” Ruchasaid, who also works for Lyngers hiring manager, said.
The company has also begun offering a more flexible hiring process.
Workers can take on up to three years of unpaid leave to look for a job, or the company can pay them up to five months of unpaid holiday leave each year, according Lyngeles hiring manager.
Lyntech, another outsourcing company, recently began offering two weeks of paid vacation each year.
Lyde, a Filipino tech company, says it has hired more than 400 Filipino engineers.
The companies are hiring a lot from other parts of the world.
The Philippine government has also helped recruit tech workers from abroad, including Germany, South Korea and the United Nations, Lynges hiring agency says.
