Eidosmedia Atlantic will recruit around 35 people by the end of 2023 and continue growing its staff in 2024 and beyond.

“We’re constantly exploring, evaluating and deploying new technologies to help our customers maximize the productivity and flexibility of their operations,” said Christian. “To help us with that mission we’re actively recruiting creative technology enthusiasts to join our teams.”
The new tech centre will become the company’s second global development hub, extending the current team structure and working in full coordination with the rest of the organization worldwide.
The first team to extend activities to the new hub will be Operations later in 2022, with a focus on Managed Services and Cloud. The Engineering team will begin to integrate the hub’s resources in early 2023, including collaboration with the Politecnico and the University of Porto.
The new centre will also support Eidosmedia’s ongoing development in innovative areas, such as the integration of Artificial Intelligence and machine-learning capabilities into its platforms.
Eidosmedia Atlantic will be based in the district of Batalha, in the historic heart of Porto, strategically connected with the metro, rail station and parking facilities, close to restaurants and shops.
