Japan-based NTT Data plans to open an office in Nashville’s Capitol View, company and state officials announced Monday.
The IT services company expects to hire 350 people in Nashville, with a focus on health care and manufacturing technology. State officials did not disclose incentives provided to the company.
“NTT Data is focused on developing the next generation of consulting and technology talent to meet our clients’ needs and help them address critical business problems,” NTT Data Senior Vice President Dan Albright said in the release. “We are delighted to partner with the State of Tennessee and the City of Nashville to bring the best talent to our clients and contribute to the economic success of the state and region.”
NTT employs more than 100,000 people around the world. NTT Data Services, its Texas-based U.S. division, comprises more than 50,000 workers.
“Middle Tennessee’s technology sector is growing strong and producing great, high-quality jobs,” Sen. Brenda Gilmore (D-Nashville) added. “With IT services being in such high demand, the success of companies like NTT DATA will pave the way for even more companies to grow.”
Middle Tennessee’s tech sector has seen strong growth in recent years. A report published in December by the Department of Information Systems & Analytics at Middle Tennessee State University and produced in partnership with the Greater Nashville Technology Council showed that the number of area tech jobs grew by more than a third from 2014 to 2019 and is expected to grow another 16 percent by 2024.
