Six months after the expansion in the North-Eastern part of the country, Fortech announced the opening of its 2nd office in Iasi, considered the 3Rd IT hub in Romania and the fastest-growing city in the North-Eastern part of Romania.
The company’s goal for the next 2 years is to open here 100 job opportunities for IT Specialists. The expansion is part of the team consolidation strategy started back in the spring with the opening of a new delivery center in the North-Eastern part of Romania and the 1st office in Iasi and brings the company on track to reach 600 people by the end of the year.
The new office occupies a rented surface of 250 square meters in the Moldova Center, a modern business center certified as “Very Good” by BREEAM and equipped with A class facilities. At the time, the office accommodates half of the team in Iasi, while the other half is based at our office in the Palas Business Complex.
The local technical team counts 35 specialists and will significantly strengthen Fortech’s presence in the region. The expertise of the team covers all the mainstream programming languages (JAVA, .NET, C++, Mobile) and QA. Our goal for the near future is to further grow this team with experienced software engineers and project managers.
“We are proud of the team built here in Iasi in the recent months and we are eager to continue to develop quality software here”, said Ioana Sfârlea, Operations Manager of the Iasi Delivery Centre. “We are at the beginning, but this translates into relevant professional opportunities for experienced engineers, enabling them to shape the local team and the evolution of the company. Furthermore, being part of a large company means stability, professional maturity, refined processes and a certain flexibility in projects allocation, all while keeping a relaxed and friendly atmosphere that we want to preserve as we evolve”, continues Ioana Sfârlea.
The consolidation strengthens Fortech’s ability to meet the increasing demand from its customers through a model of dedicated teams that can cover end-to-end development services. Working exclusively with Western clients, the company portfolio includes major names spanning diverse verticals, with a notable focus on automotive, healthcare, IoT and eCommerce.
“The local market in Iasi is going through a moment of change and growth and we tap into the energy that comes from that”, completed Călin Văduva, Fortech’s CEO. “The expansion came along with the necessity to provide a business model that works at a local level. This is also an opportunity to pilot a new model of collaboration in distributed teams which proves to be successful and is easily replicable in our relationships with customers. Our team in Iasi is highly talented, displaying a stack of competencies that fully aligns with the specific of our business and thus enables us to expand our offer to various customer segments”, concluded Călin Văduva, Fortech CEO.
