Newtown, PA - December 3, 2015 - EPAM Systems (NYSE:EPAM), a leading global provider of product development and software engineering solutions, announced today the opening of its Prague, Czech Republic delivery center. Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is a growing source of innovation due to the increasing demand for software solutions and services in Central Europe. This new location will enable EPAM to more closely collaborate with clients in the region, as well as provide a scalable operation to support local talent base growth.
“The Czech Republic is very important for us, not only in terms of how we build long-term collaborative customer relationships, but also in terms of the region’s sophisticated technical talent,” said Balazs Fejes, SVP, Co-Head of Global Business, EPAM. “We are excited to establish our new office in the iconic City Tower in Pankrac, and look forward to strengthening our relationships with local customers and welcoming our first 200 local employees.”
“Czech Republic is an ideal location for this kind of investment. Czechs are well known for their expertise and advanced know-how in the field of ICT. Prague, with its pleasant environment and high standard of living, can be also viewed as attractive by experts from abroad,” says Karel Kučera, CEO of CzechInvest. “I believe that EPAM Systems will be successful here and we will keep on contributing to its development.”
With the addition of this newly added location in Prague, EPAM will be supporting customers from locations in over 25 countries across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
