The company is certainly proud of each of its achievements, but the biggest reason for CS’s pride is its team.

Many years of experience in joint actions

The career life cycle of an IT specialist within a single company is decreasing every year. At CS, the situation is quite the opposite — 40% of the team’s specialists have more than 10 years of experience.

Oleh Pokhil, QA Team Lead, 16 years in CS

pohil-480x480 What is the CS phenomenon?

«Working at CS is a constant experience. The harder you work, the more you get. When you’re constantly doing something new, you don’t think about changing something and leaving a job that has a lot of unknowns. Another big plus is the team with whom you have gone through many trials. You know that they will always be able to help you, and when needed, you will be useful. Stability is not the least important in all this. Many challenges have been overcome, and when you realize that you are involved in this, it is inspiring.»





Svitlana Yatsenko, Technical Writers Team Lead | iFOBS, 14 years in CS

yacenko-480x480 What is the CS phenomenon?

«I have been with CS for 14 years. The hardest part was in the first year – I came to IT from another field, changed my profile dramatically, and was looking for my place in a new company. From the very beginning, I felt strong support and achieved results quickly. I started my career as an ordinary tech writer, and two years later I was entrusted with the responsibility of managing the technical documentation department. After that, years of really interesting work and the most valuable thing for me, communication, followed one after another. When I ask myself what keeps me here, I find a clear answer — not «what», but «who». The team, the atmosphere, and the relationships. People who have become more than just colleagues over the years. Yes, the IT market is very, very changeable. Today the conditions are better here, and tomorrow — there. You can chase salaries, you can look for better conditions, but personally, I am where I feel good, where I feel realized, where I feel respect and support, and confidence in the future.»

«I have been working in the Kyiv office for quite some time. The atmosphere that has developed in our team provides support in any case: the implementation of complex projects, new processes within the company, or just meeting with colleagues for fishing. I personally enjoy doing something that brings benefit and satisfaction to both the company’s clients and colleagues, and with such a team, it is very easy.»

«CS is my second job. Perhaps it’s my inherent sedentariness, but when you understand what you’re doing and why, when people listen to you, and your team is like a family to you, you don’t think about changing jobs. In addition to career development, from middle developer to team lead, CS offers professional development through a variety of customers, markets, countries, and technologies — you will never stand still. It’s also very cool to be involved in the creation of niche software products, such as our backup solution ProVision, which has been on the market for several years and has no equal analogs.»

«No matter what we say, no one else will understand who we are until they decide to become one of us. There is passion, freedom, and intelligence here. Understanding that you are involved in something very important and significant for the country. Yes, we work for the domestic market of Ukraine and we are proud of it. CS are people with impeccable expertise and a constant thirst for knowledge. We are CS».
