Itiviti to hire hundreds of new employees in rapid expansion plan

The firm said it planned to hire 200 new research and development, quality assurance, and client service positions in 2021 and 2022.

Trading technology provider Itiviti has said it plans to hire hundreds of new employees to support its continued expansion into the foreign exchange and fixed income global markets.

The firm said it would be hiring at least 200 new employees across its research and development, quality assurance, and client servicing divisions to “keep pace” with its expansion plans.

The majority of the new staff will be joining the company in its St Petersburg, Cluj, and Mumbai offices, said Itiviti.

“This hiring plan is a part of our multi-year strategy to deliver innovative and reliable technology that will help our clients achieve sustainable long-term growth,” said Rob MacKay, chief executive of Itiviti. “We grew our team by over 6% in 2020 and we plan to accelerate that growth in 2021.”

Last month, the trading technology provider confirmed it would be transferring its entire platform to the cloud using a hybrid private-public strategy with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The cloud transformation will be rolled out in phases with the first set of applications running in the cloud due to go-live by the end of 2020.

“Launching such a large-scale investment in staff during this time while other organisations are downsizing is very exciting and promising for us,” said Karoline Raets, head of people office at Itiviti. “Throughout the pandemic, our flexible work environment has kept employees highly engaged and motivated with no adverse impact on the company’s performance. As such, we are very enthusiastic about the career opportunities we can offer going forward for both internal and external talent.”
