Kraków, Poland — Oct 10, 2023 — Intellias, a global IT company with offices in Kraków, Warsaw, Wrocław, and Łódź, won first place and a special award at the SoDA Awards 2023. The company’s Portable Automotive Kit was recognized as the best solution in the Innovation category. The jury also acknowledged IntelliWomen, Intellias’ corporate initiative aimed at empowering women in the tech industry.
The award ceremony took place at the annual SoDA conference, which brought together more than 200 IT companies. Experts chose the most significant projects of Polish IT community leaders in eight categories.
Intellias’ innovative Portable Automotive Kit received top marks from judges in the Innovation category. The kit prototype demonstrates the company’s extensive technical capabilities, from hardware and embedded software development to cloud integration and interface design.
The Portable Automotive Kit is a modern human–machine interaction system, using TomTom navigation and ADAS functions. Earlier this year, Intellias successfully presented the kit at the CES23 international exhibition of technological innovations in Las Vegas.
Winning the SoDA Awards 2023 is a great honor and an even bigger motivation for our team. We love to share our experience and see it getting positive reviews. Intellias creates software for automotive industry leaders. Following the main industry trends, we create advanced technological solutions for cars of the future. The Portable Automotive Kit demonstrates the diversity of our skills and capabilities.
Intellias also received a special award from the jury in the Employer Brand category. The jury appreciated IntelliWomen, Intellias’ initiative that aims to promote gender equality and fights gender stereotypes in the professional environment.
Equality, diversity, and inclusion are among Intellias’ core and unchanging values. In the spring of 2021, the company signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs). Thanks to their successful implementation, the share of female specialists in the company is constantly increasing. Women currently hold 43.81% of leadership positions, compared to 35.16% in 2021.
This SoDA award is especially valuable for Intellias. Being among the winning companies motivates us to make even more effort in creating comfortable workplaces and providing all specialists with equal opportunities for professional growth. Equality, diversity, and inclusion remain among the company’s key values, no matter how fast we grow. It’s important for us to promote gender equality in the tech sphere at all levels, and we want to make it a trend for the entire field.
Rooting the principle of gender equality in the corporate culture, Intellias created an IntelliWomen community uniting about 450 female Intellias specialists. IntelliWomen is a place for networking, sharing experience, and supporting one another in professional growth.
Earlier in 2023, Intellias’ IntelliWomen initiative also won a Silver Award by Forbes Bulgaria in the prestigious HR & Employer Branding Awards for promoting gender equality. Intellias has been named a Great Place to Work in Poland by GPTW and the Top Tech Employer by the Polish Bulldogjob portal.
