December 2, 2021 — Gdańsk, Poland — The Tricity (Trójmiasto) area of Gdańsk, Gdynia, and Sopot is increasingly marking its position on Poland’s IT map and aims to be one of the largest IT hubs of the future — not only in the country, but also across Europe. More organizations are investing in the local, ever-growing IT market, including GlobalLogic, a leader in digital product engineering.  In 2022, the company will open its Gdańsk office and hire over 100 specialists of various profiles.

The Polish IT sector is developing dynamically and providing professional support for dozens of industries and companies operating in the country and around the world. Its strong position is associated with successive developing points on the IT map of the country, where talented specialists can easily find a job and develop by implementing original and innovative projects. Trójmiasto is without a doubt one of them.

This is where the new office of GlobalLogic, a Hitachi group company, will be established to help brands around the world design and create innovative products, platforms and digital experiences. The company’s headquarters is located in Silicon Valley, it has offices and Engineering Centers across the world, including several Polish cities: Wrocław, Kraków and Szczecin. The Gdansk office will be the next big step in the company’s expansion in Eastern Europe. The new office will be mainly focusing on developing projects related to IoT (Internet of Things). Because of the high-level competencies of local developers, Tricity will also provide strong support for projects in other trending areas such as embedded systems, cloud services, mobile applications, automotive etc.

“At GlobalLogic, we have constant contact with the latest technologies, implementing exciting projects for our business partners. We are glad that now we will be able to engage local specialists from the Tricity, who are known for their remarkable determination to constantly expand knowledge and creativity. Tricity, thanks to its focus on the growth of the IT sector, provides skilled and experienced specialists in all software development domains. Together we can grow and provide a greater value for our clients, and in the long run also for ordinary people and entire societies,” says Kamil Swiadek, Program Director at GlobalLogic.

For over 20 years, GlobalLogic has partnered with businesses across every major industry to make amazing products. The main reason the company decided to expand in Tricity was the potential of the regional IT market: high-class technical universities delivering new talents every year and a supportive business environment. The close second reason was the quality of life. Tricity is a perfect place to live which guarantees top-notch talents will be willing to work and relocate here.

“Tricity is a very hospitable place, we’re always happy to welcome new citizens and new businesses. I’m glad that GlobalLogic was able to spot our potential. I’m sure that developing innovations and conducting business in Pomerania will be fruitful for them and beneficial for the regional economy,” says Mieczysław Struk, Marshal of the Pomerania Voivodeship.

In the next few months, GlobalLogic plans to employ over 100 specialists to work at their new office, especially looking for C/C++ and Java Developers, DevOps Engineers, Test Engineers, Mobile Developers, Cloud Software Engineers and Program Managers. At the same time, the company intends to actively support young specialists and university graduates starting their careers in the IT sector, offering numerous development opportunities and programs allowing them to expand their knowledge and improve practical skills.

Our ambition is for Tricity to be the number one IT Hub of the future, and we’re lining up multiple tools and actions to reach this objective. Having GlobalLogic on board brings us another step closer to this goal. We’ll do our best to create the best possible conditions for them to grow – says Marcin Grzegory, Deputy Director, Invest in Pomerania.
