Just six months after committing to establish a corporate presence in Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital and the country’s most prominent IT hub, Intellias has opened a new site there with 50 employees. Now, having reached an important milestone of 400 employees between its offices in Lviv and Kyiv, Intellias plans to continue its expansion nationwide, with potential new locations already in mind.
Kyiv, with its abundant IT talent, is a natural fit for Intellias; the city is home to 41% of Ukraine’s IT experts. Undoubtedly, this access to employees will help the company increase its recruitment speed, benefitting clients who need to quickly scale their outsourcing operations to meet business objectives. Kyiv is also the most popular city for developers to relocate to from other regions, providing even brighter prospects for acquiring talent Ukraine-wide. Last but not least, the capital has great connections by air to major European and North American cities as well as to the Intellias headquarters in Lviv.
Intellias held a launch event on April 28, 2016, in Kyiv city center close to the historical Podol district. The stylish office premises, newly designed in line with an ambitious and dynamic corporate look and feel, currently host 50 employees but are able to accommodate growth, providing enough space for 100 workplaces. The office is conveniently located close to the city center in a neighborhood with easy connections by public transportation to all districts (it’s only a 7-minute walk from the Taras Shevchenko metro station).
The expansion of Intellias to Kyiv is a direct response to market demand and record growth of the company. Our existing and new clients will certainly benefit from access to Ukraine’s largest IT talent pool, quicker staffing, and the possibility to recruit developers with special profiles. We’re excited to have a strong and diverse talent pool available to us.
