Now in its 20th year of business, CRITICAL Software has unveiled plans to open four new offices situated in the countryside of Portugal. Offices in Vila Real, Viseu, Tomar and Évora are expected to open their doors in the near future.
The decision represents a significant investment that will benefit both CRITICAL Software and local communities across Portugal. In recent years, the country has struggled with a talent exodus from its inner regions to the bigger cities on the coastline. By opening new offices inland, CRITICAL Software is creating opportunities for individuals who want to work in diverse, high-tech sectors without necessarily needing to relocate.
Gonçalo Quadros, CEO of CRITICAL Software, commented: “By opening new offices in these locations, we are reminding people that they do not have to leave what they love behind to secure a great career. They can stay near their families and enjoy the quality of life that living in the countryside brings whilst also enjoying a fantastic career in technology.”
The new offices will initially provide around 60 new career opportunities, providing a welcome boost to the communities where they will be based. With these four new locations and strong growth also expected at its existing offices, CRITICAL Software is welcoming applications from candidates looking to work on exciting projects alongside talented teams.
“CRITICAL excels in tackling the most demanding engineering challenges. Throughout our 20 years, we’ve achieved what we have because of the dedication of our people. We aim to recruit passionate, driven and creative individuals and to provide them with a working environment where they are looked after and can thrive. This is what sets us apart from our peers and we’re immensely proud of that,” said Gonçalo Quadros.
