CGI’s Center of Excellence in Sherbrooke
CGI announced on June 13 the opening of a new center of excellence in the heart of downtown Sherbrooke. The center will specialize in emerging technologies, Web and application maintenance for the primary sectors in which CGI offers its services - government, financial services, telecommunications and utilities, manufacturing as well as retail and distribution - and will serve many large international clients.
For this new center, we seek software developers, analyst programmers, and test specialists whose area of expertise is primarily in application development, notably using Java and .Net. We also have positions to fill in a number of specializations, such as IBM technology platforms and Microsoft. Candidates wishing to submit their CVs may do so by going to www.cgi.com/careers.
Supported by the Ministère de l’Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale (Emploi-Québec), the Ministère du Développement économique, de l’Innovation et de l’Exportation (MDEIE), the City of Sherbrooke and the academic members of the Sherbrooke University Pole, the center is expected to open in the fall.
With its 141,000 residents, Sherbrooke is the sixth biggest city in Quebec and is the principal economic center for the region. The Sherbrooke region is renowned for its mountains, lakes, outdoor activities, and high quality of life, and the strength of its two universities and three cégeps has been recognized throughout the province.
