The Washington state-based company has acquired 11,000 sq ft of space at Mays Chambers on May Street, having originally set up here in 2017.
Mays Chambers was formerly home to the Coroner's Service.
The firm has a staff of around 50, and hopes to take on a similar number this year.
The letting was secured by Osborne King on behalf of landlords Orby Investment.
Unosquare chief executive Giancarlo Di Vece said: "We have found incredibly talented and innovative individuals in Belfast.
"We continue to be committed to investing in the growth of our operations in Northern Ireland; through our new premises, the Mays Chambers building, we will double in size in the short-term."
Richard McCaig from Osborne King said: "We are delighted to have secured Unosquare as a tenant for Mays Chambers and it's fantastic to see their continued expansion in Belfast."
Orby Investment is also in the process of developing Erskine House, a 100,000 sq ft office development on Chichester Street to be occupied by HMRC.
Mays Chambers went on the lettings market in February 2016.
The Northern Ireland Courts and Tribunals Service (NICTS) had leased the building. It said at the time: "After careful consideration NICTS did not renew its lease for the building when it ended in January 2016.
"Mays Chambers was used by the Coroner's Service and Taxing Masters Office, which were relocated to Laganside House and the Royal Courts of Justice in December 2015."
