Building on its 46-year history as Japan’s most trusted provider of IT solutions, Information Development initiated a global expansion plan 12 years ago to build a diverse, multinational organization. Using a two-pronged approach, the organization looked for the right locations in which to build strategic satellite offices and rolled out an innovative hiring and training process to develop global talent.
Boston was chosen as the site for ID America, Information Development’s U.S. headquarters, in order to be a part of one of North America’s leading innovation and education hubs. ID America currently focuses on two key strategic areas: sourcing innovative software back to Japan for integration into the Japanese market and recruiting globally minded, IT-literate and bilingual candidates who want to begin to build a career in Japan.
“We are looking to find the right partners and the right corporations so that we can bring back new software and inventive technology for our clients. We also actively recruit new graduates and mid-career hires throughout the region since their knowledge and expertise are vital to our future success as a global organization,” said ID Group Global Advisor Kerianne Panos.
“We’re looking for partnerships with companies in the ‘Internet of things’ and mobile security. By introducing new technology and innovative products to the Japanese market, we can better support our clients in many key areas of operations within our organization,” ID America General Manager Yuko Kasuya said.
