Devoteam, one of the world’s largest cloud technology companies, has opened a new office in Kaunas, continuing its expansion in Lithuania. The French company, which works with technology leaders Google, Microsoft and AWS, will partner with local university KTU to support the development of cloud technology specialists in Lithuania’s second largest city.
Over its more than 25 years of operations, Devoteam has expanded to 25 countries worldwide. It currently has more than 10,000 employees worldwide and hit EUR 1 billion in revenue last year. Today the company employs 74 specialists In Lithuania across its offices in Vilnius and Kaunas.
Devoteam’s Kaunas office, which was established in March, will focus on the provision of cloud-managed services and continuous innovation, and will be the company’s main cloud services centre. In this way, the Kaunas team will support Devoteam’s mission to help clients achieve automation, smooth daily operations and other business-critical tasks.
Darius Janulevičius, Head of Devoteam Lithuania, notes that the company’s decision to be located close to a university training high-level specialists was no coincidence, and that Devoteam plans to play a key role in Kaunas’ ongoing development.
Elijus Čivilis, General Manager at Invest Lithuania, says that Kaunas’ well-developed infrastructure and abundance of talent is making it an increasingly attractive proposition for international technology companies.
“Devoteam has chosen Lithuania for a strategically important role – as the company’s main cloud services centre. The Kaunas team will be working with the biggest cloud technology leaders. Kaunas is continually proving itself to be an attractive and favourable location for foreign investment in ICT and business services. The opening of Devoteam’s new office confirms that Kaunas can offer international companies a favourable business environment for the implementation of complex solutions,” says the General Manager at Invest Lithuania.
