Cognizant, based in Teaneck, has acquired digital engineering assets from Hunter Technical Resources, a privately-held digital engineering and project management agency headquartered in Atlanta.
Hunter Technical Resources engineers specialize in high-demand skills, including full stack development, machine learning, DevOps, systems architecture and data science. The acquisition extends Cognizant’s talent network in key markets, strengthening the company’s digital engineering resources in the U.S. as well as Cognizant’s position as one of the world’s largest digital engineering firms.
“This acquisition expands Cognizant’s access to the highly-specialized expertise our clients require to accelerate their digital transformation journey,” said Rajesh Nambiar, President, Digital Business and Technology, Cognizant. “Hunter Technical Resources has a long track record of sourcing high-value IT talent for blue chip clients. Their unique, blended focus on technology and relationship building fits perfectly with Cognizant’s digital engineering franchise and our own client-first culture. We’re thrilled to expand our digital engineering capabilities in the U.S. as we welcome the Hunter team into our software product engineering family.”
“Hunter Technical Resources was founded 20 years ago with one mission — recruit the best talent available, a passion we share with Cognizant,” said Scott Hall, President, Hunter Technical Resources. “We are excited to have the digital engineering business we have built become part of Cognizant’s large and growing digital engineering enterprise.”
Hunter Technical Resources is Cognizant’s sixth announced acquisition in 2021 as the company continues expanding in key strategic focus areas for digital — digital engineering, data and artificial intelligence, cloud and the Internet of Things — to provide clients with capabilities to compete as modern digital businesses. Hunter Technical Resources marks Cognizant’s third digital engineering acquisition in the past year; Cognizant acquired Magenic, a privately-held custom software development services company headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in February 2021, and Tin Roof Software, a custom software and digital product development services company headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, in September 2020.
In 2018, Cognizant also acquired Austin, Texas-based Softvision, a leader in software product engineering known for developing custom digital products using collaborative engineering methods. Cognizant is one of the world’s largest digital engineering firms, with thousands of engineers, and development sites in the U.S., Argentina, Australia, Canada, India, Mexico, the Philippines and Romania.
Hunter Technical Resources will continue to operate its project management business as an independent entity.
