VITEC first established its presence in Portugal in 2019 within UPTEC, a science and technology park which provides co-working office spaces and a centre for networking tailored to technology experts. The company's rapid growth necessitated the search for a larger, permanent office.

The new office is located close to local tech universities, which will allow students to work with VITEC whilst they study, increasing their skills and providing them with the opportunity to gain valuable first-hand industry experience. It also has strong transport links, with the Porto Metro situated nearby.

“We’re delighted to be in our new office after lots of hard work and planning,” says Sofia Rodrigues, Software Team Lead, VITEC adds. “With this fantastic new permanent space, we are well positioned to attract top engineering talent to help us further improve our solutions. We’re excited to play our role in VITEC’s growth, and we can’t wait to welcome more members to the team.”

The Porto team will be focused on software development, working in C/C++, JavaScript/Typescript and C#/.Net technologies. VITEC is currently hiring software engineers to be based in the Porto office.
