St. Petersburg Development Facility
GGA Software Services supplements the core capabilities of its management and technical team in Cambridge, Massachusetts, by leveraging as much as possible the company's development facility in St. Petersburg, Russia. The St. Petersburg facility employs 200 software engineers and mathematicians for software engineering and algorithm development, as well as support and maintenance and quality assurance. Each of these individuals has at least masters-level training in computer science, mathematics, or physics, and more than 30 percent of the team hold Ph.D. degrees in those fields.
In addition, GGA has established a 200-person team at the St. Petersburg facility to compile complex technical and scientific databases and to undertake large data migration and digital archiving projects. Each member of the content development team has at least a masters degree, and more than 50 percent of the team members have at least a Ph.D. degree. The team includes scientists, medical doctors, and other specialists who review technical and scientific literature and select appropriate information for incorporation into databases in different scientific and technical domains. In addition, the team includes experienced data specialists for extracting and formatting information for inclusion in databases and for executing large-scale digital archiving projects.
The St. Petersburg development facility gives our clients access to a stable resource of superb talent and expertise. This resource is particularly important for technology development projects, which require staff with high-level scientific, mathematical, and technical backgrounds.
By leveraging our St. Petersburg workforce, we can offer our clients a 24-hour "virtual workday," as project work can continue in Russia after the business day ends in the United States. In this way, we can respond rapidly to customer requests, sometimes even delivering results by the next business morning.
