Aquent acquires JavaScript front-end development firm

November 08, 2018

Aquent, a global staffing and recruiting firm for marketing, creative and digital professionals, acquired JavaScript front-end development firm DEV6. The Toronto-based firm will be rebranded as Aquent DEV6 and join Aquent Studios, the company’s creative and digital execution agency that provides application development and user experience services to clients of Aquent and its Vitamin T division.

The transaction closed Nov. 1; terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Aquent DEV6 has 25 employees.

Aquent generated $350 million in US marketing/creative temporary staffing revenue in 2017, according to a revised estimate in Staffing Industry Analysts’ report on the largest marketing/creative staffing firms, making it the largest firm in the category.

“DEV6’s expertise in JavaScript, and its popular frameworks, enables us to help clients deliver business-critical mobile and web applications across the enterprise,” John Chuang, chairman and co-founder of Aquent, said. “With DEV6, Aquent is in a better position to provide additional front-end application development services that drive a competitive advantage for our clients.”

Aquent’s workforce services range from temporary and permanent staffing to freelancer management and the outsourcing of entire teams.
