Regtech firm Sovos is aggressively hiring programmers

Sovos, a financial software and regulatory technology (regtech) firm headquartered in Wilmington, Massachusetts, has been expanding aggressively, both via acquisition and an ongoing hiring push.

Sovos, which sells software to the regulatory compliance, risk management and tax groups of†the four biggest U.S. investment banks, is in the midst of an extended hiring round in its core markets of Boston, Atlanta and Boulder, Colorado.

Just three years ago, Sovosís headcount was less than 500. Since then, it has made several recent acquisitions, including fintech reporting firm Paperless and tax consultancy FiscalReps, and hired 220 people last year, bringing its total number of employees, including subsidiaries, to more than 1,000 worldwide.

Sovosís plans to continue expanding its staff are primarily focused on recruiting sales/business development, information technology and engineering professionals. In particular, it is recruiting for various programming roles, looking to add developers with experience working in C#, Java, JavaScript and React/JSX.

Anupam Miharia joined Sovos headquarters in June as vice president of product development. Software engineers, technical analysts and project managers who joined the firmís HQ last year include Timothy Larocque, Chelsie Raiola, Joel Doherty, Syed Shoaib Adil, Neil Letendre and John Pisano. Dustin Rennilson and Timothy Jones joined Sovosís Denver office. The new hires at the firmís Atlanta office last year include David Chicas, Shyam Patel, Timothy Huff and David Chicas.

All of the new Sovos employees listed above can code.

In addition to the experienced candidates it hires, Sovos commonly recruits students from a list of target schools, including the University of Wisconsin, the University of Minnesota, Bethel University, the College of St. Benedict and St. Johnís University, the University of Massachusetts, the University of New Hampshire and Bentley University.
