First Derivative expands its global footprints with Poland’s Office Operations


First Derivative recently announced the commencement of its latest office in Łódź, Poland in response to significant customer demand both regionally and internationally. The launch follows the expansion of the company’s Toronto office in Canada and the continued development of its offices across the island of Ireland including Newry, Belfast, and Dublin.

First Derivative Sources added that Poland is a core gateway to tech talent, with Łódź benefitting from an exceptionally strong pool of software engineers. As the operation scales, First Derivative has committed to hiring more than 1,000 highly-skilled engineers in Poland, in areas such as data engineering, software development, cloud, and analytics.

This strategy is in line with First Derivative’s long-term objective of providing optimal service to clients by developing near-shore centers of excellence in markets where the skills and culture of the local workforce map to the values and vision of the business.

The firm’s sources added that alongside the existing pool of talent, First Derivative will launch a graduate training initiative through partnerships with local universities, mirroring how it works with leading academic institutions in other key markets around the world. The goal is to provide best-in-class computer science expertise, software engineering, and cloud talent to support clients with their toughest operational, data, and technology challenges.
