As conversations about inclusion, diversity and prejudice circle not only the tech industry but the country, a woman-owned tech company has announced plans to bring offshore operations to the Atlanta metro.
Milletech Systems Inc., a software solutions and services company, states the move will create a total of 465 jobs. The company will recruit 100 Georgia college students each year for full-time positions in the cloud technologies space. They will work at the company’s new software development center. According to Gov. Brian Kemp’s office, Milletech Systems will scout students at local Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the University System of Georgia (which comprises of 26 public institutions across the state) and Atlanta’s workforce development agency.
Those new jobs include positions in cloud software solutions, application management and support and analytical services.
“Milletech’s Software Development Center will create jobs in emerging cloud technologies and software development in the city of Atlanta, instead of offshoring those opportunities to other countries,” Nasir Mujawar, CEO of Milletech Systems Inc., said in a statement. “This facility is a ﬁrst-of-its-kind software development center, which will provide career pathways to Georgia’s local talent pool while boosting the state economy.”
