Chinese tech company Oppo sets up an automotive division. It is already the tenth tech giant to operate in the automotive industry.
Large Chinese tech companies have shown a lot of interest in the automotive industry lately. After all, now, more than ever before, there is a close relationship between the automotive and technology industries. It was recently announced that Xiaomi and Huawei are going to focus on electric vehicles, now Oppo is preparing something similar too. The company we know from Oppo and OnePlus smartphones is recruiting for automotive purposes. This is evidenced by the vacancies posted on CarNewsChina.
Among other things, the company is looking for developers for “automotive systems”. More interestingly, Oppo is also looking for sales managers with experience in the automotive industry. Oppo itself has not yet advertised what is happening. Oppo CEO Tony Chen indicated earlier this year that the company is considering venturing into the auto industry, although he didn’t know at the time if Oppo really wants to sell cars like Xiaomi or if it wants to do more in the background. The latter refers, for example, to the supply of systems and software for autonomous driving or infotainment systems. By the way, Oppo also has vacancies that focus on the development of autonomous vehicles.
