Brazilian IT services firm Resource IT Solutions has announced that it is looking to hire 300 IT professionals for its operations in Sao Paulo.
This is the second major expansion for the software company after it added more than 600 workers to its payroll earlier in March.
Resource IT Solutions will look for software developers with expertise in Java and .Net as it prepares to service new contracts recently won with retail and financial services providers.
The Brazilian company has been growing rapidly ever since former Capgemini executive Paulo Marcelo took over as its CEO in January last year.
The company posted R$435 million (US$128 million) in revenue for 2015, but there is no data available regarding its earnings for 2016 and 2017.
With more than 2,500 employees, Resource IT Solutions runs delivery centers in 4 Latin American countries, including Colombia, Mexico, and Chile. It has three software development units in the United States in addition to an innovation center in the Silicon Valley. Yet the North American country accounts for less than 10% of his revenue.
In an interview with IPNews last year, Marcelo said that he would focus on widening the company’s international footprint and winning more clients in overseas markets, particularly in the United States.
In Brazil, Resource IT Solutions has its headquarters in Sao Paulo and delivery centers in just about every major city, including Alphaville, Americana, Campinas, Salvador, Recife, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Itajaí, and Porto Alegre.
Considering past statements from its senior executives, the company will shortly go public by listing its shares on the Brazilian stock exchange.
Resource IT Solutions claims to have a roster of 300 customers around the globe, with Brazilian retail and financial services providers making up the bulk of its clients. It counts a number of American technology multinationals – including Oracle, Microsoft, and Dell – as its partners.
