In a move to add more than 700 additional employees to its workforce, CIBER, Inc. has hired 150 IT professionals to join its expanded Detroit Global Solutions Center in Southfield, Mich.
The new jobs are the direct result of a partnership between the State of Michigan, the City of Southfield and CIBER, responding to needs of clients who want expert consulting services, the company said.
Over the next seven years, CIBER plans to invest more than $8 million in the center. Currently, the company employs 8,000 workers.
David Peterschmidt, CEO of CIBER, said the facility will serve clients not only in Michigan, but across the whole nation and potentially worldwide
“These are sophisticated jobs, requiring employees with a deep knowledge of specific technologies and business acumen,” he said. “With the type of industries historically present here in Detroit, there is a deep base of talent that we are able to tap into.”
