Ukraine-Origin IT Outsourcer Intellias Opens Colombian Operations With Big Plans For Continued Expansion
Intellias, a global IT outsourcing firm with a Ukrainian heritage has announced that it is setting up a new delivery center in Colombia and gathering a team of experienced engineers to work on digital solutions for industrial and professional clients. The company says it expects to hire up to 60 specialists in Colombia by the end of 2023, adding to its global team of 3,200 experts in 13 locations globally. Colombian engineers, developers and data scientists will be able to work on projects in IoT, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, data science, cloud services, DevOps, big data, Salesforce, and other domains.
Intellias has expertise in several industries including mobility, financial services, telecom and media, and retail, working with companies like HERE Technologies, HelloFresh, Rand McNally, TomTom and DKV.
“Having a well-developed tech ecosystem and technically skilled engineers, Colombia is one of the fastest-growing IT hubs in the LATAM region. Additionally, Colombia is the perfect location to set up the first delivery center in Latin America and work with our growing US client roster. By cooperating closely with Colombian IT experts, educational centers, and IT hubs, we plan to build a top-tier team of engineers who will join our efforts in digitalizing the world. We invite local developers to apply to join the Intellias team and grow with the company,” said Vitaly Sedler, CEO and co-founder of Intellias
Intellias claims to have been named the best IT employer by Forbes and EY in 2020 and 2021, and has also been named one of the most family-friendly companies in Ukraine by UNFPA. This, according to the company, is due to paying special attention to nurturing and supporting a human-to-human corporate culture. Team members can manage their careers, work remotely, master new skills, become mentors, join engineering communities, and even get insurance for their pets.
“Setting Colombia as a new global location is a big and strategic step for Intellias. We hope to get access to the world-renowned LATAM talent market, using Colombia as a key bridge, while also using Colombia’s close ties with North America to foster a strong partnership with our clients. We look forward to cooperating with Colombian specialists on top-notch engineering projects and creating outstanding digital solutions while enjoying the rich culture and diversity Colombia has to offer,” Camilo Riveros, Intellias Employee Experience Manager for Colombia
Last year, Intellias reported 50% growth, opening new offices in Croatia, Bulgaria, Spain, Portugal, and Poland; and acquiring Digitally Inspired, a fast-growing UK-based development company focusing on retail and eCommerce industries. Intellias also has offices in Ukraine, working with the country’s engineers to launch initiatives to support the Ukrainian people during the country’s defense against Russian aggression. In 2023, the company plans to open even more locations in Colombia and India.
