The world IT leader, Luxoft, part of the IT giant DXC Technology, has opened offices in Belgrade, and continues to expand its team and operations in Serbia. The opening of the Belgrade office was attended by Prime Minister Ana Brnabić, as well as Luxoft’s global management team.

Belgrade’s reputation as an increasingly important center of the IT industry has been further strengthened by the opening of Luxoft offices, where IT experts from Serbia will work on the most important projects for the world’s largest brands in the fields of the auto industry, the banking sector, logistics, telecommunications…

Luxoft Serbia officially started operating in March, as one of the company’s strategic locations in Europe. Today it has 1000 employees, with the ambition to double the number in the next year. Luxoft delivers state-of-the-art software solutions to more than 425 clients globally, including 74 Fortune 500 companies.

Self-driving cars, state-of-the-art medical platforms, security applications for the world’s largest companies, innovative technologies used by banks for digital onboarding, risk management, remote banking platforms, centralized trading platforms – these are some of the projects Luxoft teams from Serbia are working on.

Modernly equipped offices spread over 3,600 m2, on two floors of a newly built building in Airport City and have the capacity to accommodate 500 employees.

The opening ceremony was attended by the Prime Minister of Serbia, Ana Brnabić, who pointed out that the arrival of the Luxoft company brings additional knowledge to Serbia: “We brought to Serbia additional talent, additional knowledge, people who can help our economy to grow and strengthen.” The IT sector is the fastest growing sector of our economy, which will help us to have exports of over 2.6 billion euros this year.”

With more than 20 years of experience in the IT industry, Luxoft is continuously expanding its global operations, and today operates in 27 countries, including North and South America and the EMEA and APAC regions.

Serbia has enormous potential for the IT industry, and it also provides excellent opportunities for the relocation of foreign experts, including Russian developers. “There are more than 40,000 IT experts in Serbia. According to our estimation, the number has been doubled by relocations, and Serbia can attract even more experienced IT experts. We believe that the local IT industry has the potential to grow to several hundred thousand experts in a short time, and that Serbia can become one of the leading countries in Europe in that aspect. Global companies such as Luxoft come to Serbia with great experience, stimulating the local IT market. It’s a situation where everyone is struggling”, said Luxoft CEO Dmitri Lošinjin.

Luxoft holds numerous awards for the best employer, such as Best Place to Work, Best Company for Diversity & Inclusion and Best Corporate Social Responsibility.

“We are excited to expand our business here. Serbia has an excellent position in Europe, infrastructure, a strong school system, and cultural closeness that contributed to it becoming home to many Luxoft experts who decided to leave Russia. IT is recognized as a key sector here and the Government provides great support to technology companies”, said Elena Gorjunova, Senior Vice President Global Talent Acquisition and Management.

Director of Luxoft Serbia, Mihajlo Poštić, said that the company currently has more than 200 open positions for local IT experts, and revealed plans for the future: “We plan to double the number of employees in the next year, and potentially open more new offices. We also plan to cooperate with our renowned faculties where future IT experts are educated, with the aim of developing the skills and knowledge of talented students, so that they will be able to join our projects as soon as possible”, N1 writes.
