“We are delighted to join forces with 47 Degrees, and we believe that with their strong expertise in Scala, Kotlin, as well as functional Java, this acquisition will establish our presence in the global market and also allow us to widen our functional programming expertise to Rust, Clojure, and Haskell.” said Anand Sahay, Global Chief Executive Officer of Xebia Group, in a press release. “We aim to become one of the most significant one-stop-shops for all functional programming needs."
The 47 Degrees team will remain as a cohesive force under its new parent company, continuing its collaborative efforts and growth while it embraces a more extensive network of partners under its new parent company. According to 47 Degrees’ Chief Executive Officer Nick Elsberry, the acquisition will allow the company to scale and broaden its service offerings while continuing its ongoing community initiatives, saying, “We’re proud to be 47ers, and we’re now also proud to be Xebians.”
