Engility Announces Hiring Plans, Intentions to Expand Charleston Location
CHANTILLY, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Engility Holdings (NYS: EGL) , a government services company that supports several contracts with the U.S. Navy and its Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center (SPAWARSYSCEN) Atlantic in Charleston, plans to hire about 100 new employees and will expand its current office space from 23,000 square feet to more than 41,000 square feet.
"Through our work with SPAWAR Atlantic, Engility and its legacy companies has been a reliable partner to the U.S. Navy and its customers for more than two decades," Engility President and CEO Tony Smeraglinolo said. "We have great people and as our work has grown, we find ourselves needing more men and women who can help us ensure mission success. Along with expanding our Charleston-based workforce, we also plan to nearly double our current office area."
Engility now has about 150 employees providing software support and information technology solutions under the Navy's SPAWAR Atlantic programs.
The company was recently selected to provide SPAWAR Atlantic with prime contractor support for engineering software modernization and performance improvement of the U.S. Marine Corps's Global Command Support System (GCSS). Working in a close partnership with the Marine Corps' System Command and SPAWAR Atlantic, Engility will deliver an improved and enhanced system capability for the Marine Corps's global logistics functionality essential to maintain a lethal and agile combat capability.
In addition to this work, under SPAWAR, Engility also provides engineering, IT, software development and product support to the Veterans Benefits Management System, which helps the Department of Veterans Affairs manage and administer benefits for America's veterans.
Smeraglinolo said Engility will continue to augment its Charleston work force with the immediate hiring of business analysts, software developers, Oracle E-Business suite experts, information assurance personnel and engineers who will support development, integration, installation and testing of large scale cloud based software systems.
"As a top mission partner, Engility applies the experience, agility, discipline and integrity required to get the job done," Smeraglinolo said. "Charleston is known as Silicon Harbor in part because of the technology-related work that is being done to support the U.S. Navy and numerous Federal agencies. We are proud to be part of the community."
