Shortly after inaugurating its office in Oradea, Fortech launches a new delivery center in Iasi. Located in the North-Eastern part of Romania, Iasi is a prestigious university center and one of the largest cities in Romania. The expansion is part of Fortech’s consolidation strategy, announced at the end of the last year. The team is accommodated in a rented space, located in the Palas Business Complex.
“Our story stretches back over a decade. All throughout this time, we could choose from various growth options and every time we took the path of entrepreneurship. This gives us the flexibility to grow the business as we wish. Expanding our operations in multiple geographic locations comes as part of our consolidation strategy. In the previous years we have accumulated a lot technically and business wise, we have refined our internal processes and collaboration models. These allows us today to approach new markets to build capacity for our clients’ needs”, said Calin Vaduva, Fortech’s CEO.
At the time of its official launch, the technical team in Iasi has 20 mid-senior level programmers with expertise in Java, .NET and C ++, QA and project management. “Our initiative in Iasi started as an extension of our team in Cluj. We seek to build in Iasi a professional technical team that will be able to undertake important project modules, from start to completion”, stated Marius Vanca, Business Unit Manager at Fortech.
Fortech’s expertise in all the mainstream technologies reflects the range of opportunities that becomes now available for technology enthusiasts from the Moldavian regions.
“We’ve been impressed by the energy of the software engineers community that we have met here in Iasi. The agile and curios spirit that distinguishes the people in the region fits our company culture perfectly. We invite such people to join our team, giving them the opportunity to work in a mature technical team. We currently have 10 openings for mid-senior professionals in Mobile (Android & iOS), Front-End, C ++, Automation Testing, Java, Web and one System Administrator position. We are ready to welcome them in a pleasant working environment, characterized by respect, reliability and the friendly atmosphere that defines our company”, concluded Ioana Sfarlea, Operations Manager Iasi Delivery Center.
The company registered an accelerated growth rate in the last years, exceeding 550 employees and collaborators. Late last year, Fortech announced a turnover of 18 million EUR and continues to be one of the most active IT developers among the software players present on the Romanian market.
