CGI Group Inc., a leading provider of information technology and business process services, today announced the opening of its newest Global Infrastructure Services support facility at Tempe Crossroads in Tempe.

Planned hiring in Tempe, and at CGI’s Phoenix-based U.S. Data Center, will grow CGI’s employee base in the region by more than 30 percent. Its new 11,000 square foot Tempe offices at 309 West Elliot Road will house more than 150 employees, bringing CGI’s total headcount in Arizona to more than 550.

CGI’s Phoenix area operations offer highly skilled, in-demand career opportunities in cloud computing, virtualization, cyber security, data center operations, client application hosting and infrastructure management. Aligned with the company’s veterans initiative, military veterans are among those encouraged to apply for entry-level to highly experienced technical positions.

Arizona ranks fifth in Fortune’s list of Fastest Growing Tech Markets, and CGI is growing its presence in the state to support federal, state and local governments and Fortune 100 companies with high-quality technology infrastructure services. CGI also supports federal clients from its offices in Sierra Vista and Tucson.

A leader in cloud computing, CGI’s U.S. data center operations were granted provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB) of the Federal Risk Management Authorization Program (FedRAMPSM). Frost & Sullivan recognized has CGI with its North American Company of the Year Award in Government Cloud Solutions.

“CGI recognizes the quality of Arizona’s workforce and is pleased to expand our operations in the Phoenix technology corridor. This is a great opportunity to draw on a strong talent pool while offering outstanding career opportunities locally,” said Douglas Crane, Vice President of Global Infrastructure Services at CGI. “We are committed to delivering an outstanding work experience and being active members of the community.”
