The new Mesa jobs will be for full-time, highly-skilled technology and business professionals who provide business process services as well as software application development and maintenance. 

Karen McLoughlin, CFO of Cognizant stated, “We're pleased to be expanding again in Arizona, home to many of our large clients, and launching our new technology skills training initiative with Maricopa Corporate College.” 

Cognizant also announced a new partnership with Maricopa Corporate College to provide technical training for in-demand digital economy jobs. Training will be provided at no cost to those selected to participate, with the courses focusing on Application Support and Infrastructure Services. Individuals who complete the training program will have an opportunity to interview for job openings within Cognizant. 

Cognizant supports a number of clients in Phoenix and surrounding Maricopa County. The move to open the center is part of the company's $4.5 Mn capital investment this year as part of an aggressive Arizona expansion. Statewide hiring over the past 18 months has totaled more than 500 employees in addition to the new positions being created in Mesa.
