Altair has opened a new office in Thessaloniki, Greece. Located in the heart of downtown Thessaloniki, the office solidifies the country’s status as hub for regional growth since opening its first Hellenic office in 2012, according to Altair.

“Altair’s growth in Greece has skyrocketed and expanding our presence in Thessaloniki with a second office is further evidence that our work is making an impact for our customers, both locally and in Europe,” says Lazaros Tsioraklidis, managing director, Altair Hellenic. “Additionally, our workforce in Greece has grown 140% in four years and we are excited to continue this upward trajectory to attract dynamic new talent and provide enhanced service to our clients.”

The new location complements Altair’s two other locations in Greece—in Athens and the outskirts of Thessaloniki—and is actively hiring for various positions including meshing and geometry developers, computer-aided engineering and computational fluid dynamics engineers, global technical positions, interns and more. In addition, the downtown office will enhance Altair’s university collaborations, particularly with the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. This expansion solidifies Greece’s status as a major hub for technical talent for Altair in the European/Middle Eastern (EMEA) region; 90% of Altair’s EMEA technical team is based in Greece, including 80% of the existing personnel in Thessaloniki.
