New York, NY, May 30, 2016--Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT), a leading provider of software development services and innovative IT solutions to a global client base, today announced it has opened a delivery center in Warsaw, Poland. This new location will provide additional software development capabilities for Luxoft’s key customers in the banking industry.
The Company is rated among the fastest growing employers in Poland, according to Computerworld’s Top 200 ranking developing centers in Krakow, Wroclaw and Gdansk. In April 2016, the Company announced that it had more than 2,000 employees in Poland, which is approximately a fifth of all the specialists Luxoft employs globally. Luxoft has been present in the country since 2010.
“Opening this center in Poland’s capital is a natural progression of our sustained commitment to growing IT sector in the country,” said Przemysław Berendt, Global Vice President Marketing, at Luxoft. “Warsaw is the heartbeat of legislative decision making and vital business processes. It has a vast talent pool of seasoned programmers and numerous cultural and geographic benefits, which our clients should appreciate. We believe that Luxoft’s brands, employer reputation and the quality of work that we offer to local professionals will be helpful in harnessing the best talent in the competitive employment market in Warsaw.”
Over the course of financial year 2015, Luxoft tripled its workforce in Poland, which became a leading location for Luxoft in Central and Eastern Europe.
Career and Global Opportunities for Top Talent
Luxoft’s center in Warsaw will aim to attract mainly specialists with four to five years of professional experience and talented managers. The Company also plans to hire talented graduates.
“Over the last five years, together with our employees, we have implemented a number of innovative ideas, which we believe make Luxoft one of the best places to work,” said Wojciech Mach, Managing Director, Luxoft Central Europe. “Now, we want to bring our good practices to Warsaw. We plan to employ .Net, Java, C++ programmers, QA specialists and business analysts. They will be joined by talented graduates from Polish universities, as participants of our junior corporate program. Career development possibilities and a unique atmosphere are the biggest advantages of working for Luxoft. Our range of core competencies includes cloud services, big data, business intelligence, data warehousing and development of various software solutions. Each year we bring to Poland more and more advanced international IT projects.”
Plans for Luxoft’s center in Warsaw include hiring not only local specialists, but also those from other regions of the country moving them to that urban area by offering relocation packages that include financial support, assistance in housing and various governmental incentives to enhance this process. The Company also offers a referral program for both Luxoft employees and non-employees, with financial rewards for placement. Furthermore, professionals working for the Company have an opportunity to grow within its global structure. Qualified employees with at least one year of work experience at Luxoft can apply for relocation and a new position within the Company’s global locations in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Africa.
