In the last 20 years there have been changes not only in our company, but also across the whole IT market in Krakow: for sure it was much smaller then and did not offer the programmers the wide variety of options they can now choose from today. The memories of our employees explain perfectly the situation:
“The global giants of the IT sector had just discovered Krakow. Among them there was Comarch, a company that forged many talents, many of which moved to Sabre and currently have managerial roles in our corporation. There were also companies like Motorola, which was one of the first global enterprises to open one of its centres in Krakow. However, there definitely were fewer options available than today. At that time, Sabre was a small company and only people with friends working there knew what our job consisted of” – Lucjan Sosna.
“If I think about the overall situation of 20 years ago, it is easy to notice the enormous changes that have occurred inside the IT sector in Krakow since then. At that time, the IT market in Krakow was mainly dominated by companies with Polish capital that were creating software for local customers, it was much smaller and offered fewer options to the people working in it. Today it is bigger and is continuously growing. International companies are highly interested, among other things, in skilled programmers, which is one of the reasons why Poland appeals so much. Moreover, English has become a basic requirement and thus there are also many foreigners who chose to work and live here” – added Tomasz Przybylik.
