Let us introduce you to our offices in Kharkiv

Top location, modern facilities, inspiring environment, easy 24 hour access.

Location

Prime location
for prime talent.

Our primary office is located in Kharkiv, Ukraine, within the prestigious “Diamond City” building amongst other IT companies. Kharkiv is Ukraine’s second largest city and often regarded as the scientific, industrial and educational centre of Ukraine.

 

Boasting a population of 1.5 million, the city counts 38 higher educational institutions and over 450 IT businesses.

Because of Kharkiv’s high student population, the city enjoys a great energy with cafes, restaurants and bars, loads of cultural entertainment and a good public transport system.

The 30+ faculties contribute to the fast growing IT industry in Kharkiv as they produce more and more IT, science and maths graduates that move into software development as longterm career.

Office fit out

We believe environments
shape culture.

It is no secret that modern, secure and creative work context contributes to the overall happiness, productivity and loyalty of each team member. We continuously invest in our work spaces to ensure excellent results for both client and team member.

 

Our offices are light filled and situated in Kharkiv’s business centre. The office building’s 24 hour reception, buzzing food court and modern gym are a pull for the millennial candidate market. The botanical gardens do not only provide a fantastic view but also an oasis for lunch breaks and after work hang outs.

Developers are supplied with IT equipment as-needed including laptops, large monitors and headsets upon commencement of work with ivy tech.

Office management

Ivy tech's community manager’s primary task is the wellbeing of all team members.

Responsibilities include detailed onboarding processes, provision of a secure and tidy work space each day and a harmonious office atmosphere.

 

Regular check-ins with each team member enable us to identify both opportunities and risks early. This is important when skilled IT talent is in-demand globally and organisations are willing to pay top dollar for skilled resource.

 

We host regular events, treat our teams to lunches and never miss to celebrate birthdays, marriages and other significant life events.

Access to the talent pool

Using Kharkiv as our main hub has always been a strategic choice.

Ukraine is globally recognised for its highly skilled IT talent and scientific University education. It ranks fourth on a global scale in number of tech workers and keeps its place in the top ten in various statistics when it comes to quality of software development.

Compared to other IT cities in Ukraine – such as Kiev and Lviv – Kharkiv is just this little bit more cost effective and less saturated.

Culture

Culture is key when it comes to the workplace.

Culture is king and we can’t stretch this point enough. We believe that much can be overcome and achieved with the right culture.
Our intake process at ivy tech includes strict assessments ensuring the growth of our business with individuals that understand, respect and are willing to contribute to our culture.


The fruit of healthy culture is seeing people being themselves in the workplace, growing personally and professionally and experiencing kindness within the office walls and across screens.
