EPAM Poland Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary

Meet Some of our EPAMers who have Already Moved to Poland

Liudmila Fedoronok

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.

Zina Falevich

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.

Stanislau Razhanski

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.

For you and your family, you’ll have two options. You can either receive one-way airfare tickets with transfer and accommodation on the way to the airport, as well as three checked bags (up to 20 kg) each, or you can be reimbursed car mileage, insurance (for up to one month), tolls, ferry or hotel en route to the destination city up to $400 USD.
