The company is chasing expertise in emerging technologies, particularly data scientists, with any new hires slated to be posted to its software development centers in Campinas or Belo horizonte, the capital city of the southeastern state Minas Gerais.
This is the first notable expansion for CI&T after it acquired Silicon Valley-based startup Comrade in August last year.
“We look for people who have the spirit of collaboration, drive innovation, and transform our customers’ businesses,” stated the company.
CI&T has reported an average 30% increase in annual revenue successively for three years. Its profits rose 18% in 2016, despite the economic turmoil in Brazil.
The company is expecting to post US$152 million in revenue for 2017 and reach 1 billion reals (US$304 million) by 2020.
With more than 2,500 employees, CI&T is one of a very few Latin American IT providers running delivery centers in China and Japan. Even so, 40% of the company’s geographic footprint is in the US, with senior executives expecting this figure to increase to 50% over the next decade.
CI&T provides its clients with design, digital transformation, and technical services that include products in artificial intelligence, machine learning, analytics, cloud, and mobility. Among its clients are brands such as Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, AB-InBev, Itau Bank, and Motorola.
