The capital market consultancy First Derivative has announced the opening of a new office in Łódź, Poland to continue its global expansion strategy following the development of its offices in Toronto and Ireland.
Given that Poland has a great pool of IT professionals, First Derivative plans to hire more than 1000 highly-skilled engineers in data engineering, software development, cloud, and analytics. The strategy responds to the demand of customers to provide them with the optimal offering by developing near-shore centres of excellence. Besides, First Derivative will establish cooperation with local universities by launching a graduate training initiative. This approach aims to provide the highest quality services to support its clients in data management processes.
Szymon Kaczmarczyk will take charge of the new office in Łódź, he said:
“The opening of the new Polish office is a step towards First Derivative’s long-term strategy to increase its tailored offering to our clients. Our dedicated team will be positioned to empower our clients with data-driven solutions to complex business challenges. I look forward to growing the business and expanding our presence in the region.”
David Collins, Managing Director, First Derivative, commented:
“We have ambitious plans for Poland, and Łódź is the perfect location to expand our presence in engineering and strengthen our solutions. Under Szymon’s leadership, we are focused on building out our infrastructure, hiring talent at both graduate and experienced professional levels, and marketing our services. We see Poland becoming a key location for us, especially in the areas of software development and Client Lifecycle Management.”
