Australian $300 million enterprise software developer, TechnologyOne, is working with universities as part of a recruitment drive to hire skilled students to support its transition to the Cloud.
Hiring for 2013 has commenced with 300 final year students who have registered their interest. TechnologyOne attributes the figure to its Cloud focus.
The company also expects to triple its graduate intake next year. It is attracting students at career fairs with senior Cloud-focused managers who are looking for the right graduates that can be trained as developers and business analysts.
“Four our Cloud products to meet our very high expectations, they will have to deliver 100 per cent of the functions our customers want in three clicks or less,” TechnologyOne CEO, Adrian Di Marco, said.
“TechnologyOne business analysts must be able to work closely with our customers to identify their needs and communicate these clearly to our developers to make sure they deliver the right functions.”
Potential employees must study software, business, reasoning and qualitative analysis, and must also be prepared for future technological advances.
The overall aim of the recruitment drive is to make its enterprise software simple to use as consumer apps.
