Virtusa Corporation, a global provider of digital strategy, digital engineering, and IT services and solutions that help clients change and disrupt markets through innovation engineering, announced plans to grow its business and intensify its staffing recruitment efforts in Canada, specifically the province of Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI) is working closely with Virtusa to expand its North American footprint while creating high-value jobs for Nova Scotians, exporting its services, and contributing to the growing momentum in Nova Scotia’s ICT sector. Virtusa has been providing services to clients in Canada for over 15 years through locations in Toronto and Montreal, with its global workforce of over 28,000. Now with the expansion into Nova Scotia, and in particular Halifax, Virtusa will bring highly technical IT, client service and customer success roles to a city filled with an extremely diverse and skilled local talent pool, as well as top tier university graduates.

Clients of Virtusa will benefit from the Nova Scotia location’s fantastic accessibility into North America as well as Europe. Nova Scotia is a safe, collaborative environment that brings together private, academic, and public-sector agencies which will be essential for Virtusa’s growth in the province. 

Most of the desired roles will focus within development, quality engineering, support services, business analysis, and consulting services. They align with Virtusa’s core focus areas of digital & cloud transformation, technology modernization and business innovation. Virtusa will continue to provide comprehensive training programs for its newly recruited Nova Scotia staff that cover the technical aspects of the jobs, as well as industry fundamentals. Additionally, Virtusa offers formal programs in leadership, mentorship, and diversity & inclusion. The company also provides a comprehensive intern program wherein University students are recruited to work on various programs during the summer months.  Postings can be found online at
