TransUnion, a global information and insights company, is one of Kaunas’ most desirable employers and has been steadily growing its presence both in Lithuania and across the globe. It offers a range of services including credit reporting, identity and risk management, decisioning and analytics services in Africa, North America, Latin America, Asia Pacific and Europe. The company has expertise across a number of industries such as financial services, insurance, healthcare, retail and others in order to help businesses operate, compete and grow further.
Due to the growing demand for innovative technology solutions and high-quality information services, TransUnion is continuing to expand its team in Kaunas. The company will continue to add a significant number of new roles over the next three years to build on its existing capabilities of analytics, IT, project management, financial and customer service departments.
According to Jonas Lukosius, Country Manager for TransUnion in Lithuania, Kaunas has already proved to be a tech-oriented city with excellent infrastructure and highly educated and ambitious talent.
“Kaunas is a preferred location for us, due to its highly qualified tech talent and proximity to Kaunas University of Technology and the University of Applied Sciences. We believe Kaunas is a technology hub in Lithuania and can provide us with the people we are looking for. In addition, Kaunas can perfectly offer all the advantages of an unsaturated market and is full of untapped potential that TransUnion can capture, by hiring the best IT and Analytics professionals available,” states Jonas Lukosius.
For Mantas Katinas, Managing Director of Invest Lithuania, TransUnion’s continued expansion is a great example of the growing importance of Tier 2 locations – cities that find their core competences and match the specific needs of niche investors.
“Since its establishment in Kaunas, TransUnion has been steadily growing both its team and competence base. It is always delightful to see how quickly companies exceed their initial business plans in Lithuania, as well as value the strengths of local IT talents and their capabilities. We are happy TransUnion is actively discovering the growth potential in Kaunas and is significantly contributing to the ICT ecosystem in the city.” – confirms Mantas Katinas.
TransUnion has some ambitious plans for further growth in the city – not only continuing to actively contribute to the local ICT ecosystem development, but also pursuing a goal of being a key part of the company’s center of excellence for digital operations.
