User experience agency Sigma has opened an office in Poland to expand its digital and IT capacity.
The new office in Wroclaw has opened to provide technical software development and IT services across a wide range of technologies including web, mobile and application development.
Sigma, a 3,500-strong global IT consulting company with UK offices in Macclesfield and Cambridge, will use the extra office to supplement existing project teams and deliver further IT and development programmes and services to its clients.
Sigma IT Consulting Poland has already recruited 15 skilled software engineers and IT specialists and plans to expand to over 25 by the end of the year.
Hilary Stephenson, managing director of Sigma, said: “Sigma ITC Poland presents a great opportunity to expand our offering, and for Sigma UK it gives us further strength in our development capability and means we can offer an alternative, cost effective delivery model to our clients.
“Poland is currently experiencing a boom in highly skilled IT and research and development professionals so we saw this as the perfect opportunity to draw on the very strong and talented local IT community.”
Maciej Reutt has been appointed as managing director of Sigma’s new unit in Wroclaw.
He said: “We are looking forward to working alongside Sigma in the UK to knowledge share and provide technical support where needed.”
Sigma has recently worked with the University of Liverpool on a project to improve how audiences engage with its research.
