A leading local delivery platform, TALABAT has opened a new technology headquarters in Dubai City Walk, a luxury outdoor shopping and dining destination, which is increasingly becoming a hub for tech companies.
The facility, which was inaugurated by Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is one of the largest tech hubs in the region and marks a significant milestone for the company.
The tech HQ, which spans 100,000 sq ft over three floors, is designed with sustainability in mind and features environmentally-friendly elements such as low-consumption water systems, LED lighting, and open windows for natural light, which reduces the building’s environmental impact.
The team at the tech HQ includes over 400 developers and engineers who will work on developing the platform to serve customers across nine markets, including the UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Oman, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.
Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed stated that Dubai will continue to improve its economic model while investing in the infrastructure and resources needed to support businesses in the digital era.
He emphasised the importance of fostering creativity, innovation, and specialized skills in maintaining the emirate’s status as a premier regional hub for business and technology.
According to Tomaso Rodriguez, CEO of Talabat,
“The opening of our tech HQ in Dubai is a testament to our continued commitment to championing technology in the region and attracting tech talent. Our dedicated team of developers and engineers is quite unique in that it builds and maintains the head and heart of our platform – right here at the heart of the city – and not far away. The team is looking to further grow with over 100 product and tech positions, more than half of which will be based out of our new Dubai tech HQ.”
Talabat’s brand new HQ is perfectly situated in City Walk, which has now become a thriving ecosystem for technology firms. It boasts a flourishing startup community, with various incubators and accelerators that aid in the development of new and emerging technology companies.
