McLean, Virginia-based Digital Intelligence Systems Corporation (DISYS) on Tuesday announced plans to open a new office in Minneapolis-and leaders intend to fill about 80 new positions.
DISYS, an IT staffing and consulting firm, said the move is meant to strengthen its presence in the Midwest. The firm said that Jim Goodmiller will serve as executive director of IT consulting and staffing for the Midwest region, while Quinn VanGorden has been named managing director of the Minneapolis branch.
The company said that it intends to fill approximately 80 positions in its consulting, internal sales, recruiting, and support personnel teams with the opening of the Minneapolis office.
Goodmiller told Twin Cities Business on Tuesday that the company anticipates making the hires within about two to three years. DISYS intends to hire roughly 15 workers for its own internal staff and predicts that it will add about 65 additional workers on a temporary or permanent basis to meet the needs of its clients.
"We have a big track laid out for big customers," Goodmiller said, adding that he's not allowed under contract to disclose clients' names. They include "three of the top companies in Minneapolis," he said.
Incorporated in 1994, DISYS operates offices and delivery locations in North and South America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region.
