Why Choose EPAM in Poland
Meet Some of our EPAMers who have Already Moved to Poland
Lead Software Engineer
I work as a developer in the EPAM Krakow team, where I relocated in 2017 from the hero city of Volgograd. When I got a job at EPAM, I learned about the possibility of development and career growth. Be sure, everything is fine here! I am currently working on a project for a very well-known IT giant. We use a modern and, I would say, a hype stack of technologies. It's nice to see when the company develops together with you.
Software Testing Manager
In December 2020, my husband and I decided to relocate to Krakow with our two young children. We were apprehensive about how to find an apartment, a kindergarten, a school, and how to communicate in Polish. Thanks to an adaptation buddy from EPAM and communication with an experienced internal team, we coped with these challenges. Polish language courses for EPAM employees and families allowed us to quickly integrate into Polish life. Now we feel happy, settled, and want to stay for at least a couple more years.
Currently, I'm working and living in Krakow, a wonderful and magical city, where I’ve relocated together with my family from Baku, Azerbaijan. That was our dream to work abroad in a big company. I would like to express our gratitude to EPAM for their help and support in all stages of relocation. They kindly provided me and my family with tickets and temporary apartments, for which we are very grateful.
Senior UX Designer
My story with EPAM began in June 2017. I joined as a UX designer, and I have been developing my career since then, including now internationally. In the past, I lived in Minsk in Belarus, Vilnius in Lithuania, and in Krakow in Poland. Since 2018, with EPAM I’ve had the opportunity to return to live in Krakow. I’m really happy that 16 years after my first trip to Krakow, I have now returned to this city to live here for some time again.
Software Engineer, .NET
This is the first relocation experience that I passed through together with the EPAM team. Krakow, chosen for my new life, turned out to be a very beautiful city with a rich history. Today, after the experience of moving from Moldova to Poland, I can say with confidence that, everything turned out to be much easier than I could have imagined. Thanks to the support of the relocation and local teams, I have been enjoying a new stage of life for a month in a row.
Lead Software Testing Engineer
5 years ago, events occurred in my life that pushed me to search for a new project. I hadn't ever thought about moving from Dnipro even to another city, but the stars came together, and the choice for a new life fell on Poland. I live in Wroclaw, and the geographical location of this city is excellent. During this time, I have never regretted the decision to move. The list of positives regarding relocation does not end till today.
Lead Software Engineer
I was born in Minsk, where I graduated from the Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radio electronics. My career at EPAM started in 2012 as a junior software engineer. In December 2020, I decided to relocate to Krakow, where my interesting new chapter began. Krakow impresses me with its urbanism and quality of life. I have been lucky enough to meet new people, enjoy new foods and specific dishes, discover new cities, and immerse myself in local music.
