Wipro Technologies, the global IT
services business of Wipro Limited announced the
expansion of its Atlanta development center. The newly expanded center,
focused on delivering world-class services, will continue to create new
job opportunities in the local community.

Wipro’s state of the art Atlanta Development Center has scaled up to
350 employees in the last nine months. 80 percent have been hired
locally and includes recent graduates from reputable academic
institutions in Atlanta such as Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory
University, and Georgia State University; experienced professionals;
and retired army personnel.

New employees are then positioned for long-term, global careers
through intensive training and customer programs based in Atlanta, as
well as project work at different client locations in the U.S. 

They will support North American companies in the health care,
manufacturing, telecommunications, utilities, retail and financial
services sectors. These programs address the importance of customer
proximity, customer sensitive intellectual property issues and managing
government projects.

“Our goal is not to just attract companies, but to ensure that they
thrive and grow in our market,” said Jorge Fernandez, vice president of
global commerce for the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Wipro’s success
signifies more high-tech jobs to metro Atlanta, and continues to build
our reach into India.”

its U.S. headquarters.  We are delighted Wipro is finding attractive
talent here and that our market is welcoming its services," said
Charles Whatley, Director of Commerce and Entrepreneurship at the
Atlanta Development Authority.
