“Our objective is to establish Bucharest as an important technical Center of Excellence for Games QA alongside with Pune and Montreal,” stated Sanjiv Ahluwalia, Managing Director of GlobalStep’s UK & European operations. “The opening of this office enables us to be in closer proximity to our clients in Europe all while providing additional diversity to our tester resource pool. Customer focus and excellence in service delivery remain our number one driving force as we aim to grow this operation substantially over the next couple of years.”
