Sigma has opened a new office in Poland to expand its digital and IT capacity.
The new office in Wroclaw has opened to provide technical software development and IT services across a wide range of technologies including web, mobile and application development.
Sigma, a 3,500-strong global IT consulting company, with UK offices in Macclesfield and Cambridge, will be able to draw on the skills and capacity in Poland to supplement existing project teams and deliver further IT and development programmes and services to its range of clients.
Sigma IT Consulting Poland has already recruited 15 skilled software engineers and IT specialists and plans to expand to over 25 by the end of the year.
Managing director of Sigma, Hilary Stephenson, said: “Sigma ITC Poland presents a great opportunity to expand our offering, and for Sigma UK it gives us further strength in our development capability and means we can offer an alternative, cost effective delivery model to our clients.
“Poland is currently experiencing a boom in highly skilled IT and research and development professionals so we saw this as the perfect opportunity to draw on the very strong and talented local IT community.”
Maciej Reutt, who has been appointed as managing director of Sigma’s new unit in Wroclaw, said: “I am excited to lead this new business venture for Sigma in Poland. Wroclaw is an amazing city and a bit like Poland’s equivalent to Silicon Valley. We are constantly on the look out for the very best in talent, and have big plans to expand over the coming months. We are looking forward to working alongside Sigma in the UK to knowledge share and provide technical support where needed.”
