US Software R&D Company Auriga Announces Expansion of European Branch in Vilnius

Woburn, MA, February 3rd—Auriga Inc., a U.S. software R&D services provider, has announced plans to expand its operations in Vilnius, Lithuania. Over the next three years, 70 additional engineers will be hired in Lithuania. The company opened its office in Vilnius a decade ago.

Auriga has more than thirty years of experience delivering software engineering services for customers worldwide. Its first project was creating a database application for Hewlett-Packard, and its list of clients has since grown to include such household names as Chrysler, Fresenius Medical, Draeger, nVent, and others.

Headquartered in Massachusetts, US, Auriga provides extensive services, including software R&D and product engineering, sustaining engineering, testing and QA, product customization and integration, and IT consulting. With more than 600 employees at seven development centers in six time zones, Auriga delivers more than 100 projects annually, providing innovative and best-in-class services and solutions for a wide range of industries and companies around the world, from medical device manufacturers and e-healthcare providers to telecom, banking, and retail product and service providers.

A decade ago, Auriga decided to strengthen its presence in Western and Northern Europe by opening an office in Vilnius.

We recognized the vast opportunities and importance of the Baltics to the EU IT market many years ago, says Sergey Berezko, Director of Business Development at Auriga. While considering locations for our European engineering center at the time, we were impressed by Lithuania’s rapid technological growth, its openness to international tech businesses, and the fast-growing market of IT professionals. In most of the cases, our experts are working directly with our customers, so Lithuania, which offers convenient flight access to main European countries and a great pool of English-proficient IT specialists, met our site selection criteria perfectly.

Today, Auriga Baltics focuses on embedded systems and software for the medical, healthcare, and safety sectors, industrial automation, and IoT and data science solutions. In 2019, Auriga launched another software R&D lab in Vilnius that provides software research, development, and testing services to one of its major clients, a leading German medical device manufacturer. Auriga’s engineers play a crucial role in aiding the development of sophisticated medical and safety devices used worldwide, including in Lithuanian hospitals.

Auriga’s plans for expansion in Vilnius include hiring at least 70 specialists in the next three years. Most new hires will be software engineers proficient in C, C++, embedded software, Java, Python, JavaScript, etc.

Auriga’s plans to hire a triple-digit number of employees in Vilnius serves as testimony to the high level of technical expertise the local talent pool has to offer, says Mantas Katinas, Managing Director of Invest Lithuania. Lithuania already speaks for itself as the place-to-be for international IT companies that seek to innovate and lead in their field.
