Higher sales in 2016 and the increasing number of new prospects in strong markets such as Germany, the USA, France, the UK, the Netherlands, and Norway favor the company’s organic growth.
New software engineering roles will be open for hire, especially for Java, Javascript, .NET, and PHP developers. The QA department is estimated to grow as well, with the company recruiting both experienced and junior-level personnel. New openings are expected to be announced in the coming quarters for embedded software developers too, based on growing demand in the European Automotive industry.
