    Default Brexit to create flying cars

    Boost for UK tech as German flying taxi startup creates 'hundreds' of new London software jobs

    Britain's technology industry has received a boost after Lilium, the German flying taxi start-up, announced plans to hire hundreds of software engineers at a new London base.

    Lilium, a Munich-based company which has designed a five-seater jet-powered air taxi and has secured funding from some of the world's biggest technology investors, will set up its engineering base in London with the aim of adding hundreds of “high-end software engineering roles” over the next five years.

    On its new London base, Remo Gerber, chief commercial officer of Lilium, said: “Achieving our aims will require us to build one of the world’s most innovative and high-performing software engineering teams. London offers us access to a rich talent pool.
    Not Munich or Berlin then? I blame Brexit.

    Any of you lot know where you can recruit 100s of software engineers willing to work in London and how much it's likely to cost?

    Apparently DodgyAgent is on the phone to Poland, Romania, Latvia and Lithuania at this very moment!

    TCS and Wipro already have their bids ready. All of them have 10 years experience in the new tech required that is still being developed, and are ready to start.
