Maria Anzini, Vice President of Talent Acquisition at Fresche, commented that "Fresche now has well over 400 employees world-wide, with more than 150 in Montreal. The size of our Montreal office alone has doubled in the past 18 months as job-seekers and our market begin to realize what an innovative, energized and dynamic organization we are. It starts with employee satisfaction and success, which then acts as a catalyst for business success. Before long, the two feed off each other, and growth accelerates at an astonishing rate. We're now IBM's partner for any company running IBM i, as our expertise in the IBM i application modernization and management space is unparalleled."

We're at 200% of our fiscal plan this year with two months to go, and new contracts and global demand are driving significant hiring around the world. We have over 60 openings for RPG, Synon and Java developers, in addition to QA analysts, project managers and software engineers. It's a fantastic time to be at Fresche. We appreciate our employees and do everything we can to nurture their growth so that they truly enjoy their work and transmit their enthusiasm to customers."

We have consistently been chosen one of Montreal's Top Employers, but our benefits and philosophy extend worldwide to our many Fresche offices. Our diversified cultures around the world are a vital part of our success.
