Yoox Net-A-Porter Group has unveiled a new Tech Hub in the MediaWorks building at White City Place. It will be home to a 500-strong team of technologists who will drive the group’s future growth.
YNAP's CEO Federico Marchetti officially declared the facility open in a ceremony attended by the architect of the space Sir Nicholas Grimshaw and London’s deputy mayor for business Rajesh Agrawal.
Marchetti said: “We are happy to invest in London and we are here to revolutionise the luxury industry,”. A further 100 jobs are expected to be created at the facility in the coming two years and YNAP is also investing in the community with a partnership with Imperial College London, called Imperial Codelab, to teach local schoolchildren technology skills such as coding.
