Combining activities and broadening services will create leading position in DevOps
Computest DevOps is merging with CloseSure, the data and test engineering service provider. This move will create a company with over 300 employees. With Computest DevOps and CloseSure joining forces, clients will enjoy a broader service portfolio and even more high-quality technical expertise. They will also benefit from CloseSure’s strong regional presence, with five offices in the Netherlands. For employees, the merger means they can continue to develop and grow in various areas.
Previously, in April of this year, Computest DevOps acquired SYSQA, a service provider in software testing and quality assurance. The merger with CloseSure enhances the company's position as a leading DevOps specialist.
"With in-depth expertise in test automation and data engineering, CloseSure adds a lot of value and clout to our organisation”, says Hartger Ruijs, CEO and founder of Computest DevOps. “What’s more, the experience they have of data projects will allow us to develop new propositions. The fact that CloseSure has a very strong regional presence – a boon for customers and existing and potential employees alike – also made the proposition of going forwards together very attractive. But perhaps the most important driver and success factor for this merger is our shared vision of employees: happy colleagues are at the heart of everything we do at both Computest DevOps and CloseSure."
Development and retraining opportunities
Integration with CloseSure will add about 50 data engineers and 50 test specialists with specific knowledge to the Computest DevOps team. This will create attractive opportunities for all employees to further their development, master new tools or even retrain as data engineers or DevOps specialists. Moreover, because CloseSure's five offices will remain operational, employees can continue to work in their own regions and the overall Computest DevOps organisation will be better placed to attract talent from across the country.
We complement each other well in various technical and business areas. And there is also a very good match culturally and in terms of our shared focus on people.
Hans Ruesink, Managing Director of CloseSure
Hans Ruesink, Managing Director of CloseSure: "The merger with Computest DevOps means we can give a new impetus to our ambitions and growth. We talked to several parties about moving forwards together, but Computest DevOps was clearly the most attractive. We complement each other well in various technical and business areas. And there is also a very good match culturally and in terms of our shared focus on people. This provides a solid foundation. I therefore look forward to our joint future with great confidence."
Ruesink will assume the role of Managing Director at the new integrated organisation and will sit on the board. CloseSure will continue to operate under its own name for the time being. In the coming months, an integration team consisting of members from both companies will take on the task of merging the two organisations.
