Intellias launches an office in Kyiv and announces new hires
The new premises with 50 employees have become a reality just 6 months after Intellias committed to establish a corporate presence in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital and the country’s most prominent IT hub. Having recently reached an important milestone of 400 employees at its offices in Lviv and Kyiv, the company continues to expand its activities nationwide with new potential locations already on the list.
Kyiv is a natural fit for this expansion with abundant IT talent, as the city possesses 41% of Ukraine’s IT resources pool. Undoubtedly, this immediate availability of resources has a long-term positive impact on the recruitment velocity of the company and is highly attractive to Intellias clients, whose business objectives require them to quickly scale their outsourcing operations. Also, Kyiv is the most popular destination for relocation from other regions, which provides for even brighter perspectives of talent acquisition Ukraine-wide. Last, but not least, the city has a perfect flight connection with major European and North American cities as well as with Intellias headquarters in Lviv.
A launch event was held on April 28, 2016 in Kyiv city centre, close to the historical district of Podol. The stylish office premises, newly designed in line with ambitious and dynamic corporate look&feel are now hosting 50 company employees and are able to accommodate for the company’s further growth, providing enough space for 100 workplaces. The office is conveniently located within a close proximity to the city centre, has a great historic neighborhood and an optimal transport connection to all city districts (7 mins from Taras Shevchenko subway station).
The CEO of Intellias, Vitaly Sedler shares his thoughts with us:
“The expansion of Intellias to Kyiv is a direct response to a market demand and record growth of the company. Our existing and new clients would certainly benefit from access to Ukraine’s largest IT talent, quicker staffing and possibility to recruit special profiles of the developers. We are excited to have a strong and diverse talent pool available to us”. In his opinion, establishing corporate presence in Kyiv presents significant opportunities for further growth and new client wins.
