Wipro Hunts for Remote-Working Brazilian IT Talent

Indian IT services firm Wipro has ramped up hiring in Brazil, launching a hunt for the country’s best IT talent who want remote-working opportunities.

The Bangalore, India-based IT provider, which hired more than a thousand Brazilians in the past year, says it is looking to add 500 more people to its payroll by the end of 2022.

“We are hiring throughout Brazil, especially in the Northeast region—mainly the capitals Recife, Fortaleza—as well as in Natal – Curitiba, Brasília, and cities in the countryside of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro states,” stated Wipro in a press release.

Wipro first entered Brazil in 2006 following the acquisition of Portugal-based consulting firm Enabler. A year later, it purchased Infoserver, an IT service provider focused on personalized application development and software deployment services.

In 2020, it bolstered in-country operations further by acquiring another local IT provider IVIA Serviços de Informática.

As of September 2019, more than 1,400 Brazilians worked for the IT provider. Today, Wipro runs three delivery centers in Sao Paulo and Curitiba.

These days, the company is increasingly focusing on cloud technology solutions. Douglas Silva, a former senior executive of Amazon Web Services, is today in charge of Wipro’s operations in Brazil.
