Altimetrik, a digital business enablement company with headquarters in Southfield, announced the presence of a new office in Wrocław, Poland, to meet customer demand and support an expansion in Europe.
“Establishing this kind of presence as a technology hub in Poland was a strategic decision that will service our growing client needs,” says Raj Sundaresan, CEO of Altimetrik. “Our emphasis on digital business, innovation, product, and data engineering are a perfect match for the strong Polish technology sector and its proximity to both established talent pools and centers of business.”
Poland’s technology market has grown at a stable rate of 5 percent to 10 percent annually, Altimetrik says. Poland is also a top nearshoring destination with around 15,000 new software engineers graduating every year.
The expansion should give Altimetrik the human capital needed to grow a significant DevSecOps practice as the market becomes less reactive and more security-focuses in earlier stages of app development. There is an opportunity for Altimetrik to develop tailored solutions that support end-to-end implementation and client education on threats and mitigations.
“We maintain Altimetrik’s incredibly high bar for recruitment requirements. We are seeing substantial interest from our U.S.-based clients in expanding operations to Eastern Europe,” says Jarek Wawro, head of engineering and the Poland technology center. “Our Poland team is able to help them better tackle challenges with EU compliance, security, business, IP, copyright, and all other aspects required to ensure business success. This important work should help lay the foundation to attract new clientele native to the region.”
Through the expansion, the company will look to expand the focus into data science and machine learning. With experience in mature technologies and frameworks, as well as in data-specific solutions and niche languages, it can provide new opportunities for customers. Altimetrik’s Wrocław office has 60 employees working remotely due to the pandemic.
The Poland office joins the company’s existing global footprint across the U.S., India, Uruguay, Japan, and Canada.
“We’re anticipating the same kind of growth our company has experienced across the board,” says Sundaresan. “By the end of 2021, our goal is to surpass 250 employees in our Wrocław office and start to become recognized as one of the best technology employers in Poland.”
Altimetrik was close to finding a permanent building site in Poland prior to the pandemic; due to COVID-19, the company has yet to secure a location.
