Windebank added "We are seeing increased demand for experienced engineering teams that can build complex cloud environments and migrate core applications – especially with organisations who have already started their cloud journey but have realised they need deeper experience to deliver on their cloud agenda at the speed they are expecting.
"There is a serious lack of experienced cloud capability in the Singapore market, and we see demand continuing to accelerate over the coming six months.
"We remain focused on supporting our existing client base in the successful delivery of their cloud programmes, whilst continually looking for the most complex projects in the market where we can make a real difference. At our current trajectory, we are expecting to hire another 30-40 positions before the end of 2021."
Versent has created 28 new senior roles in Singapore since the beginning of the year, and its team there is now more than 60 strong.
