Nagarro SE, a global leader in digital product engineering and technology solutions, completed six months in SriLanka, announcing substantial expansion plans of building a team of over 500 top-tier technology professionals.
Nagarro SE chose Sri Lanka as its first international addition since its debut as an independent, publicly traded company in December 2020 at the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in Germany. It is the 26th country to Nagarro’s rapidly expanding global footprint.
Nagarro serves customers across 13 business verticals, including automotive, banking & financial services, insurance, energy & utilities, life sciences, healthcare, telecommunications, retail, travel, and logistics. Nagarro offers solutions built with deep expertise in AI & ML, big data, cloud, ERP, embedded systems, IoT, quality & test engineering, security, and DevOps.
Even before the pandemic, Nagarro always gave its employees the option of working in diverse remote environments, believing that virtual remote teams are the future of work. With its mission ‘to make distance irrelevant between intelligent people,’ Nagarro believes that intelligent people will bridge the distance between themselves, making distance irrelevant when dealing with clients, partners, and colleagues.
Nagarro hopes to bring this same belief to Sri Lanka by promoting and encouraging hybrid working models, allowing Nagarrians complete freedom of choosing the most convenient mode of work based on the needs of their team and clients. CARING is Nagarro’s core value. It is an acronym for six other core values – Client entric, Agile, Responsible, Intelligent, Non-hierarchical & Global- that are part of the Nagarro DNA, reflecting the unique company culture.
“Although we are a large organization, our primary focus is to be agile and swift by bringing together small high impact teams with a highly technologically driven, flexible, and collaborative approach. And this is where Sri Lanka will play a major role in Nagarro. We find an incredible talent pool in the country and the boutique nature and culture it possesses to build world-class technologies and innovation”, said Manas Fuloria, Custodian of Entrepreneurship in the Organization (CEO) of Nagarro.
Nagarro emphasizes gender equality, with many steps taken to ensure that females make up at least one-third in the management level. One of its notable initiatives is the Glass Window program which focuses on building and recognizing strong female leaders. The company also has uniquely designed hiring programs for women, including its collaboration with ‘Women In Technology’ (WIT).
Nagarro takes a special pledge for working moms and hopes to be the first-choice employer among them. Consistent parental leave policy with paid leave for both parents, return-to-work programs and training, mentoring, virtual courses, and webinars from Nagarro University, the work from anywhere option are a few of the initiatives among many others provided by the company. The Nagarro accelerator growth program (NAGP) offers ample opportunities for any Nagarrian to fast-track their career by seeking more challenging assignments and global exposure. Numerous other skill development, learning, and knowledge-sharing platforms and programs are also available.
Nagarro (FRA: NA9) is a global digital engineering leader with a full-service offering, including digital product engineering, digital commerce, customer experience, AI and ML-based solutions, cloud, immersive technologies, IoT solutions, and consulting on next-generation ERP.

By the end of November, the number of cities that the aircraft will serve will be scaled up to 27, representing a more than 65% increase from its current 16.
The Emirates A380 remains highly sought-after by travelers for its spacious and comfortable cabins featuring modern amenities to make the journey a memorable experience. The airline is gradually and responsibly deploying its popular aircraft in sync with passenger demand as the travel industry continues on its path to recovery. With the addition of 11 routes to the A380 network by November, as well as extra frequencies on the most popular ones already being served by the aircraft, Emirates is poised to offer close to 165,000 additional A380 seats to customers.
Fans of the popular double-decker aircraft will soon see more in the skies as an increasing number of A380s are returned to service, taking flight to operate routes where it is commercially viable to deploy them. Over the next six weeks Emirates will re-instate its signature A380 services to popular leisure and business destinations such as Amsterdam, Barcelona, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Johannesburg, Madrid, Milan, Riyadh (subject to government approvals), Sao Paulo and Zurich.
Emirates will also introduce a new route to its A380 network that was previously not served by the world’s largest commercial aircraft. The flagship aircraft’s services to Istanbul are scheduled to launch on 1 October, set to become the first-ever A380 operation in Turkey.
As the world’s largest operator of the A380 aircraft, the airline’s total fleet of A380s will reach 118 by year-end, including six aircraft equipped with Premium Economy seats in a 4-class configuration. The airline currently flies to over 120 cities, representing 90% of its pre-pandemic network, and plans to restore 70% of its capacity by the end of the year are on track with the return to service of more than 50 A380 aircraft.
In addition to signifying the airline’s continued commitment to and confidence in the A380, Emirates is scaling up of operations across its global network to meet the surge in customer demand to Dubai as well as other destinations that allow quarantine-free entry for specific nationalities and vaccination status. Dubai safely welcomed over 4 million overnight leisure and business visitors since it reopened in July 2020 and with Expo 2020 Dubai just ten days away, the city is preparing to welcome visitors for the world’s largest gathering and highly-anticipated event which will include a rich line-up of themed weeks, entertainment, workshops, live shows as well as country pavilions and special installations to get a glimpse of the future.
The Emirates A380 experience has remained a long-time favourite amongst travel enthusiasts, loved for its extra legroom and comfort and the industry’s largest screens for customers across all cabins to enjoy the airline’s extensive selection of content on its award-winning in-flight entertainment system, ice. Customers travelling in premium cabins continue to return again and again when making travel plans, for its signature features such as the popular Onboard Lounge and fully flat seats in Business Class, as well as private suites and Shower Spas in First Class.
In December 2020, Emirates introduced its first A380 aircraft in 4-class configuration, featuring Premium Economy. By November this year, the airline will have six aircraft equipped with the seat offering and new-look cabin interiors.
Keeping the health and wellbeing of its passengers as top priority, Emirates has introduced a comprehensive set of safety measures at every step of the customer journey.
