Since its acquisition of the Columbus-based digital agency Dynamit in 2019, WillowTree has continued to grow in established markets. There has been a heightened demand in the digital product space fueled by COVID-19. Scaling will help the company manage increased customer volume.
The company needs to hire for very specialized roles quickly in order to meet that demand and is looking for competitive talent.
Competition for recruiting in the technology industry is at an all-time high, and we are confident that we will find world-class talent in the Columbus Region to help fill a variety of hyper specialized roles. Scaling our workforce here is an integral part of our strategy to meet the current surge in demand for digital products.
