Established in 1991, ELEKS was one of the first software development businesses in independent Ukraine. Since 2014, the company has been listed by IAOP as one of the world’s 100 best outsourcing providers, and focuses on enabling business innovation through software product engineering services. The company keeps expanding its presence in the U.S. and UK markets, as well as in Europe, with plans to strengthen its offices in Kyiv, Rzeszów and Kraków.
ELEKS continues to focus on building advanced software products for its clients, while adding four new, large-scale enterprise customers in 2016.
As one of the co-organizers of the Lviv IT Arena conference, the largest IT event in Ukraine, ELEKS shows its ongoing commitment to the Ukrainian IT community by creating new educational opportunities for talented technology students, launching training camps in software engineering, DevOps, QA, UX and other topics.
“Over 25 years we have done and learned a lot, and we continue to grow, mature and improve our services," said Ruslan Zakharchenko, CEO of ELEKS. “Being early adopters by nature, we are always highly motivated by working on technically complex solutions.”
To celebrate the anniversary occasion, the company held a festive event, “25 Years: Engineering the Future”, taking place on July 28-29 in Lviv, Ukraine. The two-day agenda included a customer event and a company-wide Open Air festival at a picturesque countryside resort.
The customer conference featured technology demonstrations, a roundtable discussion and feedback session on the day prior to the company-wide celebration. Guests had an opportunity to learn about ELEKS’ latest service offerings and strategies, covering Software Product Engineering services, Data Science, as well as the internal R&D Platform and ELEKS’ creative engineering approach.
The Open Air event, held on July 29th, started with an official opening by ELEKS’ CEO and included greetings from ELEKS’ key customers, various teambuilding activities, delicious national food, a concert by the Ukrainian musical star Onuka, fireworks and much more.
The breadth of knowledge and understanding that ELEKS has within its walls allows us to leverage that expertise to make superior deliverables for our customers. When you work with ELEKS, you are working with the top 1% of the aptitude and engineering excellence of the whole country.
Right from the start, we really liked ELEKS’ commitment and engagement. They came to us with their best people to try to understand our context, our business idea, and developed the first prototype with us. They were very professional and very customer oriented. I think, without ELEKS it probably would not have been possible to have such a successful product in such a short period of time.
ELEKS has been involved in the development of a number of our consumer-facing websites and mobile applications that allow our customers to easily track their shipments, get the information they need as well as stay in touch with us. We’ve appreciated the level of ELEKS’ expertise, responsiveness and attention to details.
