Intellias, a software development company in Kyiv
In September 2015, Intellias opened a development center in the capital of Ukraine and became a software development company in Kyiv. It grew rapidly, and we hired the first 100 employees in just nine months. Now we employ over 220 in-house engineers at this location. Kyiv is a natural fit for Intellias second-most important delivery center due to the city’s abundant tech talent, which allows us to quickly scale engineering operations for our clients. As for the country’s capital, software development in Kyiv is also the top destination sector for people who move from other regions, enabling us to draw talent Ukraine-wide. This also makes Kyiv a strategic location for organizing tech events outside of Intellias home office in Lviv to attract a wider audience.
