US software R&D company Auriga Announces Expansion of European Branch in Vilnius

February 03, 2021

Auriga, a US software R&D services provider, has announced plans to expand its operations in Vilnius, Lithuania. The expansion will see 70 additional engineers hired in Lithuania over the next three years. The company opened its office in Vilnius a decade ago.

Established as Infort in 1990, Auriga has more than three decades of experience in delivering software engineering services for customers worldwide. Auriga’s first project was creating a database application for Hewlett-Packard, and the list of Auriga’s clients has since grown to include such household names as IBM, Chrysler, BroadVision, Draeger and others.

Headquartered in Massachusetts, USA Auriga provides an extensive range of services, including software R&D and product engineering, sustaining engineering, testing and QA, product customization and integration, as well as IT consulting. With more than 600 employees at seven development centres in six time zones, Auriga delivers more than 100 projects annually providing innovative and best-in-class services and solutions for a wide range of industries and companies around the world from Medical Devices manufacturers and E-Healthcare providers, Automotive, Construction and Engineering Tools manufactures and Chips producers, to the Telecom, Banking and Retail.

A decade ago, Auriga decided to strengthen its presence in Western and Northern Europe by opening an office in Vilnius.

“We recognized the vast opportunities and importance of the Baltics to the EU IT market many years ago,” says Sergey Berezko, Director of Business Development at Auriga. “While considering locations for our European engineering centre at the time, we were impressed by Lithuania’s rapid technological growth, its openness to international tech businesses and the fast-growing market of IT professionals. In most of the cases, our experts are working directly with our customers, so a location that offers convenient flight access to main European countries and a great pool of English-proficient IT specialists suited our site selection criteria perfectly.”

Today, Auriga Baltics focuses on embedded systems and software for Medical, Healthcare and Safety sectors, Industrial Automation, as well as IoT and Data Science solutions. In 2019, Auriga launched another software R&D lab in Vilnius that provides software research, development and testing services to one of its major clients, a leading German medical devices manufacturer. Auriga’s engineers play a crucial role in aiding the development of sophisticated medical and safety devices that are used all over the world, including in Lithuanian hospitals.

Auriga’s plans for expansion in Vilnius include hiring at least 70 specialists in the next three years. Most of the new hires will be software engineers with knowledge of C, C++, Embedded software, Java, Python, JavaScript and so on.

“Auriga’s plans to hire a triple-digit number of employees in Vilnius serves as testimony to the high level of technical expertise the local talent pool has to offer,” says Mantas Katinas, Managing Director of Invest Lithuania. “Lithuania already speaks for itself as the place-to-be for international IT companies that seek to innovate and lead in their field.”
