In order to extend beyond the Agile development capabilities it currently provides to the IRS and other customers, Citizant will hire new industry experts with DevOps experience in Chantilly, VA and Austin, TX.

“As budgets tighten and the IRS pushes forward to ensure the success of the Affordable Care Act, Citizant’s support to the IRS continues to grow,” said Alba M. Alemán, CEO of Citizant. “Citizant’s long-term strategy to partner with leading experts in industry and academia allows us to introduce innovations that help our Federal customers evolve and transform into high-performing organizations. By providing integration and DevOps leadership, we will help the IRS deploy large, integrated systems more quickly and responsively, despite tight budgetary constraints.”

Citizant will receive support on TISS from the Santeon Group, a world leader in Agile transformation and development services. Santeon’s CEO, Ash Rofail, co-founded the largest Agile certification body, the International Consortium for Agile (ICAgile). Santeon leads the industry with contributions in Agile frameworks, models, practices, and high-performance development and testing solutions.
