A global technology business has boosted its offering in the North East after creating a new team in Sunderland.
Saggezza has created the new team after hiring 10 members of staff at its office at Sunderland Software Centre.
The group of 10 java developers will be dedicated to supporting Saggezza’s work with a global investment bank. Saggezza has been working with the client for some time but its contract has recently been extended.
The company has said it could create more jobs in the region if the team’s work proves successful. Saggezza is already planning on doubling its headcount this year.
Martin Williams, UK managing director of Saggezza, said: “Part of Saggezza’s ethos is to become an extension of our clients’ team, ramping up our support to deliver against their projects. It’s hugely rewarding when clients come to us with an additional tech requirement, because it proves how highly they value our work and so it’s key that we are able to meet their needs.
“We pride ourselves on assembling the best possible teams, so it can be a challenge to find the right people, but we are determined, and we have managed to create a really strong group of 10, who we know will perform exceptionally for this client.”
Work on the new project will launch over the next few weeks, with the 10 new starters supported by the company’s existing team.
Saggezza opened its Sunderland office in 2014 and has recently recruited a number of graduates to fuel its expansion. The US-headquartered firm also has two offices in India.
Mr Martin added: “We have grown a fantastic team in Sunderland and that is testament to the talent that exists here. We’re proud that, when people join Saggezza, they’re supported to grow and develop further too, and that makes for really rewarding career opportunities.”
On top of the company’s growth in the UK, Sagezza has also expanded in the US after it acquired technology consulting firm Omni. The Milwaukee-headquartered firm serves clients in Wisconsin and Iowa.
Saggezza is a proven technology and consulting partner that delivers personalized, high-value solutions to accelerate business growth.
