Reshaping the relationship between people and technology is no easy feat, but that is exactly what Endava's founders set out to do when they began building the company 23 years ago. A year ago, the UK leader in next-generation IT solutions decided to expand its operations into Poland. Its approach to sourcing new hires for global projects makes it stand out for several reasons, as the company prioritizes not only hiring, but also engagement in local community.

The need for exceptional talents

Global transformation requires the hard work of really experienced people. We need IT specialists, who are no more satisfied with just coding and developing, but are looking for broader challenges, who want to get really involved in the whole project, bringing all their passion and knowledge to make a real difference to the client's organisation. Technology enthusiasts who combine experience, expertise and talent are the creators of the most interesting solutions that accelerate innovation around the world. And that's who we want to employ in Wroclaw.

The firm’s top clients are from sectors such as Payments and Financial Services, TMT, Consumer Products, Retail, Mobility and Healthcare. These are some of the fastest developing sectors nowadays, as they are embracing the power of digital transformation to strengthen the quality and delivery of their existing offering, propose entirely new products or services, as well as improve their customer experience. This cannot be done without the help of Wroclaw-based IT talent. Brands supported by Endava’s employees across the globe include exciting companies such as Volkswagen, Hellenic Bank and Santander Group – this demonstrates the high bar that has been set.

Wrocław is an exciting city. Its great quality of life on the intertwinement of the cultures enabled by its closeness to other European capitals, as well as IT engineers that are well- educated by local universities – all of this strengthens local talent pool. We treat our presence here not as merely an opportunity to source new hires, but also as a commitment to local community in which these employees are active on a daily basis. We are looking for the best talent out there that is able to deliver world-class out-of-box solutions, but also to support their development both inside the company and outside – in the city of Wroclaw.

All-in-one project team

The company’s employees across Poland include specialists from almost all IT specializations. This way of hiring allows the team members to bring in the skills needed to fill all roles required in a typical IT project, which means Endava is able to deliver comprehensive initiatives for its clients covering the entire software development life-cycle. Sometimes this means even taking on typical client-side roles, such as product owner or infrastructure architect. Such set-up gives the freedom to explore all possible solutions to create the one that truly meets the needs of the client and allows the employees to act as esteemed IT consultants rather than just simple code committers.

Local community involvement

Endava's commitment to local communities is reflected in the events it organises and participates in, bringing the culture of knowledge sharing from internal events such as Pass it on meetings or Tech Talks to the outside audience. Over the past 12 months, Endava organised three meet-ups for local IT communities across the country, as well as participated in the industry events in Warsaw, Lodz and Gdansk.

In Wroclaw, Endava is committed to providing similar networking opportunities, as well as roles in its team, as it promises to pursue new local initiatives and recruiting processes. The company's rapid growth, with revenues in 2022 up by almost half on the previous year, means that this year IT engineers from Wroclaw will have access to many exciting opportunities to work with global companies.
