EPAM opens a representative office in Odesa

EPAM, the largest Ukrainian IT company, will open a representative office in Odesa, which will organize and coordinate all the work of the company in the Odesa, Mykolaiv, and Kherson regions.

As the head of the representative office of EPAM in the south of Ukraine, Sergii Garashchuk, said in an interview with the newspaper Dumskaya, the office in Odesa would cooperate with educational institutions by engaging in the training and education of employees.

According to Garashchuk, opening the office in Odesa will allow the employees to concentrate in the working environment and hold meetings with their team and clients.

Besides that, the office will have several other responsibilities:

  • cooperation with higher educational institutions
  • professional development of the company’s specialists
  • attraction of new clients

The employees will continue working remotely despite the opening of the office

EPAM already has representative offices in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Lviv, and Vinnytsia. According to Garashchuk, it will be not just an office in Odesa – it will be a representative branch of EPAM in the south of Ukraine.

Now the company has over 200 specialists in the southern region, and most of them are from Odesa. These employees will be able to continue working out of the office because the pandemic has shown that this remote working format can be very effective.

“Now we see that the overall productivity level of project teams working remotely has not decreased, and on some projects has even increased. Employees can have productive workdays that include performing their household tasks. For example, employees taking their children to kindergarten or school still give the right amount of time and effort to work during the day,” the head of the Odesa office says.
