Asseco’s Cracow-based IT center has been moved from an old house at Podwale St. to a modern office building at Wielicka St. It is a workplace for 130 software developers, who implement projects for companies in the telecommunications, banking and insurance sectors.
“Among us are co-developers of one of the most advanced mobile operator billing systems, co-authors of e-commerce portals for two of the three leading mobile operators, developers of low-level SMS/MMS processing platforms that support the largest media events in Poland,” says Radosław Semkło, Director of the Telecommunications and Media Division at Asseco Poland.
The new location of Asseco in Cracow is a modern class A office building, equipped with soundproof windows, air conditioning, and a parking lot. Our project teams work in rooms of several people. In addition, this location offers a set of video and teleconferencing rooms, allowing for the efficient organization of meetings with people from other offices.
“We have intentionally resigned from an open-space approach, because our experience shows that comfortable working conditions positively affect the creativity and productivity. Thanks to our excellent network infrastructure it is also possible to work securely on a remote basis,” emphasizes Radosław Semkło.
The Cracow branch of Asseco’s Telecommunications and Media Division employs nearly 100 engineers, including analysts, architects, software developers and administrators. Most of them have many years of experience in developing Business Support Systems for telecom operators and media companies. By the end of the year they will be joined by colleagues working in a different location of Asseco, Zabierzów near Cracow, who are specialized in the field of Business Intelligence.
Asseco continually recruits people to IT-related occupations. We need software developers: programmers, architects, testers and designers (especially those specialized in C++, WebMethods, and PeopleSoft technologies) but this is not all. Many job offers are addressed to system administrators, database administrators, as well as those specializing in the implementation of software solutions, including analysts, implementation engineers, and project managers.
“Concurrently to concluding new contracts, we continue to execute our implementation and maintenance projects for telecommunication operators and media companies. We are looking for engineers – software developers, architects, testers – those who are experienced, but also those who are just building their know-how. Over the coming year we intend to employ an additional 150 persons in our Telco Division, some of them will be based in Cracow,” adds Radosław Semkło.
