Accenture Federal Services is opening an Advanced Technology Center in St. Louis, bringing 1,400 highly skilled technology jobs to the region over the next five years.
The announcement was held on the Maryville University campus, as the new technology center is moving in next door in the Maryville Centre. The announcement was made by Missouri Gov. Mike Parson and other civic leaders.
The new facility will provide custom digital, cloud, automation, artificial intelligence and cyber solutions to federal government agencies. St. Louis was selected as the location of the new facility because of its skilled talent, vibrant technology ecosystem and community commitment to collaboration between government, civic, business, academic and community partners.
“I am thrilled to announce today that we will open our new technology center here in #STL, and bring 1,400 tech jobs to Maryville Centre.”
