One of the largest ukrainian IT-companies Intellias, announced the launch of two development centers — in Krakow and Ivano-Frankivsk. The office in Ivano-Frankivsk will become the 5th development center in Ukraine, and Krakow will be the first delivery office abroad.

Involving Intellias in this IT environment is an opportunity for our team to continue scaling. For our customers, the presence of Intellias in the European market creates additional value in terms of cooperation with us. Furthermore, Krakow is already well-known to many of our employees and clients as a tourist destination, and Krakow is connected by direct flights with our four largest delivery centers in Ukraine.’’ – Comments Vitaly Sedler, CEO and co-founder of Intellias.
