3Pillar Global, an American IT services company with an active presence on the Romanian market since 2009, inaugurates today, September 6th, the third development center in Romania. The American company chose the city of Iasi to expand its operations in Romania after researching other options in the country and region.
3Pillar Global activity in Romania started in 2009 and has been around for almost a decade. The company has grown organically from the takeover of a local company in Cluj-Napoca to the inauguration of the third development center, the majority of operations are now taking place in Romania. In fact, 3Pillar Global is one of the few international companies to open operational offices in all three sub-centres in Romania – Timișoara, Cluj, and Iași.
The Iași Development Center is a very important strategic step, well prepared for over a year. The capital of Moldova competed with other centers in the country and abroad, including Bucharest. The success model applied in Cluj-Napoca and Timișoara and the high level of IT specialists in the two offices, resulting in an important increase in both centers, and had a particular weight in the final decision. Other determining factors were the favorable indicators specific to Iasi – the existence of an important university center and a large number of IT graduates, the qualification level of IT specialists and their availability on the labor market, the possibilities of extending the operations and the infrastructure of the city. Following a wide-ranging analysis process that lasted for over a year, the company’s management has decided to open the third development center in Romania and also in a secondary city.
“Iași was an ideal choice for us in looking to replicate the success we’ve had scaling delivery centers in both Timisoara and Cluj-Napoca. Like 3Pillar’s other two locations in Romania, Iași is a city that attracts some of the top technical talent in the world. We’re excited to have started bringing on board a number of new members of the 3Pillar family in Iași, and we are looking to grow the team substantially by the end of the year. Anyone in Iași who’s interested in being part of high-performing teams, working on cutting-edge technology products, and building a great company culture should get to know 3Pillar.” said David DeWolf, CEO of the company.
