JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SkillStorm, a tech talent accelerator that hires, trains, certifies and deploys IT talent in the most in-demand technologies, announced today a training partnership with Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company empowering digital transformation at the world’s leading enterprises. As an Authorized Workforce Development and Training Partner, SkillStorm will hire, train and deploy over 350 Pega-certified professionals in 2021. Sixty percent will hold a secret clearance or above to support a growing demand for Pega talent in federal, state and local government agencies.
“Pega developer talent is in high demand around the world as businesses accelerate digital transformation initiatives to meet their customer and employee needs,” said Carola Cazenave, Vice President, global partner ecosystem, Pegasystems. “Our partnership with SkillStorm enables us to tap into technical talent resources that will help assist us in meeting the increasing demand within federal, state and local government agencies and commercial clients to drive digital transformation on a global scale.”
“SkillStorm has been a leading provider of Pega talent in North America since 2019. The partnership reinforces our commitment to continue building a community of Pega talent with all the required skills and clearances for clients in any industry, especially those with high security needs such as the U.S. government and financial services, communications, healthcare and manufacturing,” said Justin Vianello, Chief Executive Officer, SkillStorm. “What we also offer our clients is the assurance that SkillStorm’s talent is trained and deployed by the best in the business under the tutelage of a highly respected Pega professional, Senior Vice President David Donelan, who led Pega’s worldwide training initiative before joining SkillStorm.”
SkillStorm custom trains entire teams for client-specific needs, from novice Certified System Architects to more experienced Certified Senior System Architects. Depending on client requirements, the company will also train in Pega-specialty skills such as robotics, business architecture and decisioning. SkillStorm largely recruits its talent from an untapped domestic pool that includes veterans, which is beneficial for government clearance requirements, and recent college graduates with or without a computer science background. It also prioritizes candidates from under-represented communities such as first-generation college graduates, minorities and women.
“What excites me about SkillStorm’s unique program is that we’re building complete Pega teams for businesses and government organizations nationwide,” said Donelan. “Participants are paid by SkillStorm so they can focus on our fully immersive training experience where they work in an intense project environment and gain marketable Pega skills. We want to ensure that everyone who completes SkillStorm’s Pega training is of the highest caliber and ready to perform for clients on day one.”
SkillStorm is building the elite tech force for organizations in need of highly skilled, specialized tech talent. By hiring, upskilling and deploying professionals to work on advanced technologies and platforms such as Pega, Salesforce, AWS and ServiceNow, SkillStorm equips companies with a ready-made domestic tech workforce.
An innovation and opportunity accelerator, SkillStorm provides U.S. businesses and government agencies with fully formed and trained teams with all the required experience, skill sets, certifications and clearances, either directly to its client sites or working from its own delivery centers.
