On its 15th anniversary in Moldova, Endava opens additional office space in Chisinau
The new office opening is an important step in the development of Endava’s delivery centre in Chisinau and also for the IT sector in Moldova, as it brings career opportunities for new people joining Endava, and also career growth perspectives for current Endava employees, who have the chance to be involved in projects for big clients, international companies in UK, USA and Germany. The company is seen as a success story within the country and is actively involved in advising and moving the industry forward, being involved in many initiatives to develop the IT community – from interactions with local universities, to developing technical communities and working with Governmental agencies.
Located in the city centre, the 700 sqm new space is in a class A office building, best available in Moldova, and has been decorated following new Endava standards across the group. Facilities include 5 conference rooms and relaxation areas. This is additional office space close to the main Endava Tower office, an 8-floor building, of 2,300 sqm hosting 350 Endava employees.
Kumail Jetha, General Manager for Endava in Chisinau said: “We saw the potential of the Moldovan IT market many years ago. The calibre of engineering talent is high, the work ethic is very good and the development of the IT sector is improving every year. We plan to continue our growth and create 100 new jobs in the next 12 months, bringing our total headcount to 450, so opening additional high quality office space is key to our expansion in Moldova.”
Endava provides opportunities for IT professionals at all career levels. This year, in addition to running internship programmes, the company has recently opened several positions in the company for experienced IT professionals who want to join the team in Chisinau, in the following areas:, Java, Scala, Ruby, Android, iOS, .NET, UI and software testing.
As Endava is offering to its people a focus on career development, exposure to international work environment, direct contact with customers and opportunities to collaborate with colleagues in other locations, all coupled with excellent working conditions and a focus on work-life balance, the company is recognised as a top IT employer in the locations where it operates in Eastern Europe.
Endava has delivery centres in the main IT hubs in the region: Chisinau, Bucharest, Cluj, Iasi, Belgrade, Skopje. Endava’s growth is focused on continuing to expand its existing locations and on expanding into new locations to meet client demand. In 2014 Endava opened an office in Frankfurt following a merger with an IT and business consultancy group based in Germany. This year the company opened a new office in Skopje, Macedonia, and also it has announced recently a strategic merger with PSTech, an IT Services company in Belgrade with over 330 employees.
Robert Spittal, Operations Director for Endava said: “We deliver from Chisinau software solutions to international customers, who value the strong heritage in engineering, the cultural fit and also the challenge culture, which allows us to deliver highly complex projects. Moldova has recently signed the EU association agreement, as part of its EU accession plan, which is very important for both our customers and us and reinforces our commitment to the Moldovan IT sector.”
