Opening a new office in New York is just the first step towards an offensive on the global market.

The company is planning a rapid employment growth – 3 years from nowits ranks will number more than 2, 000 associates. Such a fast development is possible owing to the company’s services being offered in foreign markets from the very first day of its operation.

More offices are scheduled to open in the near future – in western Europe and the Middle East.

The offer is also targeted on the insurance, telecommunications, pharmaceutical and FMCG industries. The representatives of these sectors will be offered the benefits of such services as the creation, development and maintenance of software, as well as project management, business analysis and service management.
