Commenting on LUXOFT’s new office, company CEO Dmitry Loschinin said, “This new office was established to support the company’s growing needs; many new projects have emerged”. To start, the St. Petersburg operation will serve as the new Offshore Development Center (ODC) for one of our existing clients. Over time the range of activities will be expanded as the number of employees in St. Petersburg increases.

In 2005 the St. Petersburg office will host in excess of 100 software specialists. In addition to working on interesting projects with world-leading companies, LUXOFT guarantees its employees clear and rapid career growth, generous compensation and multiple work benefits.

LUXOFT is acknowledged by many independent analysts as Russia’s leading offshore outsourcing vendor. A large reason for this is the company’s commitment to quality. LUXOFT is the world’s only company to achieve CMM and CMMI Level 5 certifications simultaneously, and is the first company in Europe to achieve CMMI Level 5.

LUXOFT has representative offices in Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Omsk, Nizhniy Novgorod, Dubna) and abroad – in USA (Seattle, Atlanta) and UK (London). Next year LUXOFT plans to open another office in Frankfurt, Germany.

LUXOFT is actively involved with promoting technology education in St. Petersburg. In line with LUXOFT’s strategy to attract, train and employ Russia’s best talent, the company works closely with the St. Petersburg University of Fine Mechanics and Optics, one of the world’s top technical institutions. Additionally, LUXOFT is now setting up student programs with other highly regarded St. Petersburg technical universities.

The goal of these programs is to select talented computer science undergraduates, to provide these students with extensive training in modern software development technologies, to introduce them to real-life software projects, and to prepare these young professionals to meet top level market requirements.
