Softtek Announces Expansion of Digital Capabilities With Global Reach From India

Softtek announced that it will further expand and strengthen India as a location to grow its global digital capabilities. Softtek entered the Indian market in 2013 in Bangalore with its acquisition of Systech Integrators to support its global business markets.

Today, the company’s continued growth is prompting the hiring of approximately 500 digital & quality assurance (QA) specialists in 2022.

“Increased demand of digital services from our global customers makes India a key component to enhance our unique global nearshore delivery model,” stated Blanca Treviño, president and CEO of Softtek. “It is an exciting time to join Softtek, as the newcomers can be forerunners of the additional capabilities we are building in India and take advantage of all of the career opportunities associated with it.”

In March 2020, in the wake of the World Health Organisation declaring the COVID-19 pandemic, Softtek enabled its global workforce of 15,000 to work remotely, in prioritisation of the safety of its people. Beginning this month, employees will be welcomed back in a hybrid model, supported by Softtek’s Workplace of the Future (WoF) initiative.

“Softtek’s exceptional culture inspires our people to deliver business transformational initiatives through technology for our clients,” said Rajeev Tyagi, Softtek’s COO for the US market. “The expansion of our Digital and QA practices in India provides great opportunities for career development. Furthermore, our Workplace of the Future initiative provides an enriching and engaging environment for our remote employees while maintaining productivity and compliance for our clients,” concluded Tyagi.

Based on strengths that include strategic location on the continent and a large talent pool, India is positioned as an ideal destination to complement Softtek´s global nearshore strategies.

With more than 15,000 employees around the world, the company offers more than 6,000 training and professional development programs. Codellege, one of its flagship programs within its Corporate Social Responsibility area, is aimed at providing employment opportunities in IT for underserved youth in local communities.
