World Wide Tech­nol­ogy Inc., which helps large com­pa­nies use tech­nol­ogy bet­ter, opened a Den­ver of­fice Fri­day with plans to hire 70 peo­ple this year.

The com­pany, which em­ploys 3,000 world­wide, said the of­fice at 2300 15th St. will be its largest af­ter its St. Louis head­quar­ters. Even­tu­ally, the com­pany ex­pects to em­ploy 200 soft­ware de­vel­op­ers and 50 sales rep­re­sen­ta­tives in Den­ver.

“We’ve been on this tra­jec­tory for years, and ev­ery year we get more cus­tomers, which means more em­ploy­ees,” said Di­cran “Di” Arnold, di­rec­tor of busi­ness de­vel­op­ment.

World­Wide Tech­nol­ogy helps com­pa­nies run more ef­fi­ciently through the use of tech­nol­ogy, es­sen­tially by sell­ing them elec­tronic in­fra­struc­tures and help­ing to set up those sys­tems.

In a state­ment, CEOJim Ka­vanaugh cited Den­ver’s lo­cal tal­ent and ex­ist­ing cus­tomer base as rea­sons for the ex­pan­sion.

“Den­ver is strate­gic for us,” said Ann Marr, WWT vice pres­i­dent of global hu­man re­la­tions. “Den­ver is re­grow­ing and re­vi­tal­iz­ing it­self as a city, andwe­want to be a part of it.”

Marr was joined by Mayor Michael Hancock and other state and lo­cal of­fi­cials Fri­day­morn­ing for a cer­e­mony of­fi­cially open­ing the Den­ver of­fice.

“To have a com­pany with such global vi­sion and fore­sight in our city is an ab­so­lute honor,” Hancock said.

The of­fice will in­clude the com­pany’s Asyn­chrony Labs, which stems­fro­man ac­qui­si­tion made in June. Asyn­chrony Labs pro­vides Ag­ile soft­ware de­vel­op­ment and spe­cial­izes in mo­bile com­put­ing, which helps com­pa­nies find soft­ware so­lu­tions.
