Stefanini has boosted its presence in the Balkans with the launch of a new office in Chisinau, Moldova, which forms part of the company’s plans to double its presence in the region over the coming years.
Some 70 employees are based at the new office, which is located in the center of the Moldovan capital and will offer IT service desk support in multiple languages. These languages include Russian, English and Swedish, with experts in Spanish and German set to join.
Stefanini launched in Moldova following a one-year analysis of markets across Eastern Europe. This is when Chisinau was identified as a city with highly educated employees. They had strong Russian and English skills and a significant number of young IT specialists seeking to develop their skills.
Stefanini has a service desk and application development delivery center based at the Chisinau office. These teams are providing support to major multinational businesses in industries ranging from e-commerce and travel to insurance and telecoms.
Along with service desk support, the new office provides clients with development services, cloud infrastructure engineering, and digital transformation consultancy.
“We’re continuing to grow our presence in the Balkans and the launch of our Moldovan office is an important step in allowing Stefanini to recruit talented young professionals who are enthusiastically developing their IT skills. Chisinau has a highly skilled, highly educated and multilingual workforce and our office here is an important step for Stefanini,” says Eduard Panfile, site operations manager, Stefanini Moldova.
