Devbridge Group expands Lithuanian office and Sourcery Academy
Devbridge Group recently celebrated the opening of its new office in the capital of Lithuania to accommodate a growing team of highly skilled IT professionals. The new office is now home to more than 70 developers and quality assurance specialists and the company plans to hire an additional 100 staff per year. In addition, Devbridge Group plans to extend its highly competitive Sourcery Academy to Vilnius to train and retain Lithuania’s emerging young IT talent.
Thanking the mayor and assembled guests, Aurimas Adomavicius, Devbridge Group president and 2016 Global Lithuanian Award recipient for attracting investment to Lithuania, emphasized that Vilnius was chosen because of the Lithuanian work culture and professionalism, and the capital is currently concentrated with a number of highly qualified professionals.
“We are software designers and developers that are trusted by global FORTUNE 500 companies. Naturally, we want to make great software, and to do so requires us to attract more Lithuanian talent that can outperform our U.S. and global competitors. Our original office in Kaunas paved the way to ensure that top programmers provide exceptional service to our clients. Now it’s time to expand our Vilnius presence and beyond,” said Adomavicius.
During the event, Devbridge Group also announced its plans to expand its Sourcery Academy to Vilnius, which was established to help university students improve their software development skills and prepare for a career in the IT industry. The program has been highly sought after for the past three years in Kaunas, Lithuania. Bi-annually, Devbridge Group organizes a free, three-month course. Typically, only 20 out of 150-plus individuals will pass the entrance exam and only a handful will be offered a position at Devbridge Group.
As Devbridge Group continues to grow, so will its offices. Next up is a new office for our Canadian team based in Toronto, followed by a brand new facility for the team in Kaunas, Lithuania.
