OneRedmond announces Sonata Software’s local expansion | SLIDESHOW

Sonata Software, a global IT services company, has announced its Redmond office expansion.

Sonata Software CEO Srikar Reddy introduced the firm last night at a reception hosted by OneRedmond beginning with a traditional oil lamp lighting and ribbon cutting.

On the occasion, Reddy said, “We believe that having development facilities closer to our clients and building scale and capability in specialized technologies and applications are an integral part of our long-term strategy to be a partner of choice in select verticals and specialized horizontals. This development facility will enable deeper engagement and business development opportunities in the market. We look forward to building on our decade-plus association with some of the most respected U.S. enterprises and take that further in serving them and the community here. We thank the city of Redmond and OneRedmond for their support in enabling this entire initiative.”

The new office suite, located at Westpark Business Park, accommodates a collaborative work environment for 100 employees.

“Sonata and Redmond are a great fit for each other. This software development facility will provide jobs for our recent college graduates as well as continue to make Redmond a great place to conduct business,” said Redmond Mayor John Marchione.

Sonata Software is hiring both non-technical and highly technical local talent, growing 100 new jobs within the first year.  The project plan is unique as Sonata is intent on hiring locally.  Campus visits are ongoing at the University of Washington (both the Seattle and Bothell campuses), Cascadia Community College, Washington State University and Lake Washington Institute of Technology.  Students in the computer science and retail programs and MBA graduates have the opportunity to enter Sonata Software’s LEAD program, a four-stage program of training, practical experience, certification, shadow opportunities and mentoring.

“Sonata’s commitment to partner with our community colleges and universities and train local graduates in high-demand software specialties is a unique and welcome approach to narrowing our talent gap,” said OneRedmond CEO Bart Phillips.

“The Economic Development Council of Seattle and King County is excited to work with

OneRedmond to welcome Sonata Software to the region,” said Jeff Marcell, president and CEO of the Economic Development Council of Seattle and King County. “The company’s expansion here really speaks to the continued strength of the local technology cluster and our appeal to foreign direct investment.”
