Swedish IT-company IST - International Software technology is expanding and will hire 300 new employees until 2020. The company plans to expand with one new employee per week over the upcoming years. The reason for the expansion is the digitalisation within the school system, a growing market which will lead to increased demand on software technology services.

All new jobs will not be located in Växjö, however a significant majority will. In addition to the main office in Växjö, IST has offices in Linköping and Stockholm in Sweden, Oslo in Norway and Roskilde in Denmark.
