D.C. area-based U.Group, is expanding into the Midwest with plans to locate in Indianapolis’ Northside neighborhood. According to a release, the company aims to hire 12 people immediately with more than 100 high-skilled positions to become part of its Midwest operations by the close of 2020. The move is part of the company’s long-term strategy to diversify its prospective talent pool and partner base.
“2019 has been an incredible year for us, and we don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon,” said CEO Lena Trudeau. “Expanding our operations to a new city enables us to further accelerate our momentum—it will allow us to deliver broader capabilities, deepen existing customer relationships as well as forge new ones, and amplify the impact we create for our customers.”
Anuj Vedak, U.Group’s Vice President of Strategy & Operations, a native Hoosier, added: “When we were considering a new hub for U.Group, Indianapolis made perfect sense. The city is a great fit for U.Group from a culture, collaboration, and talent perspective and we feel right at home.”
The company’s Midwest presence, continued the release, will play “an invaluable role in the fulfillment of a recently-awarded three-year, $100M contract for DevSecOps services, the largest in company history, and the expansion of existing relationships with local partners. With nearly 300 employees, primarily in its D.C. area and Portland, Oregon offices, U.Group, which was created from the merger of CHIEF & ByteCubed, will continue to hire new talent and amplify its presence in all three major markets.” I
