247GRAD Labs GmbH from Koblenz, known for its software dirico, becomes a partner of the Oradea Tech Hub. Together with its team of currently seven developers based in the Romanian city, the German software company wants to strengthen the local tech community, expand its network and attract new IT professionals.
Koblenz, 2021-02-03. The German software company 247GRAD Labs, which develops the content collaboration platform dirico, has become a partner of the Oradea Tech Hub. The non-profit organisation is a centre of encounters, dialogue and growth for the creative community in the Oradea region. The Oradea Tech Hub is already supported by other technology and software companies to carry out joint initiatives for the local community
Back in 2016, 247GRAD Labs GmbH called on the services of freelancers from Oradea to develop its software dirico. Oradea is particularly attractive due to its university, which offers a course of study in Computer Science and thus has numerous graduates who fit the company’s requirements profile exactly.
Due to this promising answer to the shortage of skilled workers in their own country and the good experiences in the previous cooperation, 247GRAD Labs decided to found a company in Romania with DIRICO SOFTWARE S.R.L. in 2019 and to build up a long-term team. Meanwhile, seven developers work in the dirico office in Oradea – in daily exchange with the colleagues in Koblenz. Up to 20 more developers are to be hired by the end of the year.
The management of 247GRAD Labs would like to actively support the technology location Oradea, make the knowledge of its employees available within the scope of events and workshops and accompany young talents in a mentoring program. Furthermore, an international exchange within the community shall be promoted and a professional exchange with other local companies shall take place.
“The partnership with Oradea Tech Hub is an important step to further expand our presence as a tech employer in Oradea. We look forward to adding value to the local tech community with workshops and presentations,” said Fatih Temel, COO of 247GRAD Labs GmbH (dirico).
Through the partnership, 247GRAD Labs gets the opportunity to present dirico as a brand in the premises of the Oradea Tech Hub – for example during the monthly organized events. In addition, the company, which has more than 60 employees, will gain access to a network of highly qualified professionals and partner organizations of Oradea Tech Hub, visibility on the website and the possibility to organize workshops itself. In addition, open positions will be advertised on Oradea Tech Hub’s online channels to support 247GRAD Labs’ on-site recruiting efforts.
The dirico project team consists of Talent Acquisition Manager Laura Lütticke and Software Developer Sándor Oláh. They are in regular contact with the Oradea Tech Hub’s Executive Director David Achim and Community Manager Naomi Pentie. Together, the team will start planning events this month, which will temporarily be only digital and in the future will again be held at the Oradea Fortress.
247GRAD Labs GmbH is a software company based in Koblenz, Germany. Founded by Sascha Böhr and now with more than 60 employees, the company develops and distributes the content collaboration platform dirico.
