Phila-based Shunra adds staff in Capgemini deal

Shunra, a Philadelphia-based "Application Performance Engineering" network software firm, says it plans to hire 10 to 15 software sales and performance engineers and consultants after Capgemini Group, the Europe-based multinational consulting firm, agreed to promote Shunra testing services and set up a training and certification program for Shunra applications that help banks, phone companies and government agencies update and replace databases, Capgemini vice president Charlie Li said in a statement. 

Shunra employs 97 in Philadelphia, London, and Israel. It's backed by Insight Venture Partners and Carmel Ventures, and claims Apple, AT&T, Bank of America, Boeing, FedEx, IBM, ING Direct, Intel, Marriott, Pfizer, Target, Verizon and the Federal Reserve among its big corporate clients.
