GlobalLogic Inc., a Hitachi Group company, announced plans to open new engineering centers across Spain and hire new employees.
The Spain centers will represent GlobalLogic’s first sites in Southwest Europe, adding to more than 20 existing EMEA locations across 9 other countries.
Spain emerged as a key location for GlobalLogic, inspired by the government’s public commitment to the digital transformation of its economy laid out in the Digital Spain 2026 (Espana Digital) agenda and their ongoing programs to attract technology firms to invest in the country.
Nitesh Banga, President and CEO of GlobalLogic, revealed the company’s expansion during a meeting with the Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.
“Spain is committed to an inclusive and humanistic digitalization relying on public-private partnerships. Investment projects of this scale are key to accelerating the digital transformation,” said the Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.
GlobalLogic is considering several target cities including Valencia and Malaga for a 2023 launch, with Madrid and Tarragona on the long-term roadmap.
GlobalLogic aims to hire Software Architects and Engineers, Designers, Data Scientists, and other high-skilled professionals. GlobalLogic anticipates creating a workforce of up to 2,500 to 3,000 professionals over the next 3 years through local hiring and potential acquisitions.
