It was announced today that SITA are significantly expanding their Agile DevOps teams by over 55 people in Letterkenny to develop the next generation of its highly successful SITA AT AIRPORTS portfolio. These new roles include software engineers, test engineers, UX designers, scrum masters and product owners.
The leading IT provider to the air transport industry is accelerating the innovation and development of new solutions across baggage management, airport operations, passenger processing and border management. These solutions are used in more than 1,000 airports and more than 60 governments globally.
SITA established its office in Letterkenny in 2003, growing the team from 20 to more than 100 today. In 2015 it invested in a new-state-of-the-art building to accommodate the growing software teams. Today, SITA’s teams in Letterkenny are responsible for designing and creating software solutions for four of SITA’s key portfolios.
