Skype, as part of its expansion, reportedly has plans to launch a new technology center in London, noting that the move would increase its headcount in the city by 40% to 330 posts.

According to BBC News on Wednesday, April 4, 2012, Skype VP Rick Osterloh told them that the company would create about 400 new jobs for ‘cover software engineering and product management design’.

Skype is an online video-calling service that allows users to communicate through voice, video or instant messaging. Skype users communicate with each other free of charge, but land line and mobile calls are charged.

Video conferencing and other features made Skype the choice of majority of users who wanted “High Quality Video” via full screen or small screen options.

Skype users continued to increase through the years, and as of March 5, 2012, there are 35 million online users, utilizing the product simultaneously.

Reportedly, Skype has its division offices in Luxembourg, but also plans to employ new staff in Stockholm, and eventually in Estonia, Czech Republic and the U.S. This would then increase Skype’s employees to 1,600 worldwide.
