How it all began
Ivy tech, here to make an impact.
When serial entrepreneur Rob built his first Fintech company, he went on to recruit his development team in Ukraine for them to develop the MVP of his product. The deep technical skills, problem solving abilities, product ownership and general work ethic of the developers were outstanding. Seeing how the booming IT industry was changing Ukraine for the better, gave Rob extra motivation to put his product roots down in Ukraine and invest intentionally.
Rob’s Startup friends saw his success with the Eastern European team and started knocking on his door, to find software talent for their businesses also – ivy tech was born! A permanent office in Kharkiv was established, an office manager was hired and just with a hand full of developers the journey began. Clients from the US, Australia and UK started partnering with ivy tech for their tech teams.
While Rob went on to focus in his Fintech company, his wife Carmen stepped in in 2019 as the CEO of the company, taking ivy tech to the next level it deserved. Carmen’s background is in Startups, team management, business operations and sales and her vision for ivy tech is to be Ukraine’s best employer, a pillar in the IT community and a force for good.
In mid 2022 ivy tech expanded into Poland and is now hiring and employing in the polish market with the same ambitions.
