Global digital technology company Kainos is investing $1.2 million to open a North American sales and IT hub in Buckhead, bringing 137 jobs to the city.
Headquartered in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Kainos specializes in digital transformation and the deployment of Workday’s innovative Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software suite. The company builds agile, customized digital services for public, commercial and healthcare organizations. And, as a specialized Workday partner, Kainos manages complex deployment and integrations and is the leader in Workday test automation.
According to Nigel Hutchinson, vice president of Kainos, North America, the company chose Atlanta not only because it was recently named the No. 1 Tech Hub, but also because of its thriving business community and available talent supported by investment in technology education and infrastructure.
“It’s a great cultural fit too,” said Hutchinson. “We’re open and supportive, ambitious and solutions-oriented, and people who join us here in Atlanta will find they’re joining a global team eager to share knowledge and build on success that has been in development for over 30 years.”
