Ternopil – On February 9, 2017 CEO of Future Processing Jaroslaw Czaja and Ternopil’s Mayor Serhiy Nadal signed a cooperation agreement which would create up to one hundred positions in the IT sector for the western Ukrainian city. This move by Future Processing, based in nearshore Gliwice, Poland, and part of the European Union, is clearly looking to leverage its productivity with a skilled, though less costly workforce.
”I believe that we will have successful cooperation with your city. I would like to note, that we are planning on hiring about 100 people, but still our goal – is not in the number of work places with create, but the quality of the product,” stated Mr. Czaja.
Mr. Nadal clearly seemed pleased about this agreement in his official statement. “I know, that the company has already conducted its first competition for filling the positions of employment, and it was not only citizens of Ternopil who participated, but citizens of other cities as well. There are many prospects in Ternopil, as there are many students who are studying IT. I really hope, that the actitivities of the company will be successful and on our part we guarantee maximal support.”
Future Processing is clearly looking for talent and a high quality workforce as it has gained a very positive reputation in the outsourcing industry. In 2016 it garnered accolades from Global Sourcing Association of the UK as Service Provider of the Year, has been selected as a Digital Outcomes and Service Provider by the UK, were awarded top Web and Software Developers in Poland by Clutch in 2015 and were ranked twenty-third in Deloitte’s Fast 50 in Central Europe in 2014.
Given Mr. Czaja’s emphasis on quality products, and the results they accomplish with their new office in Ternopil, it would not be out of the question of other Polish firms establishing branches in Ukraine as costs rise in the European Union. Clearly there is consolidation happening in the industry. Less than a month ago SoftServe which has its beginnings in Lviv, Ukraine acquired Poland‘s privately-held enterprise technology firm Coders Centre on February 17, 2017.
