When starting your IT operations in Poland, you can opt for a distributed team with members working entirely or mostly remotely. The COVID-19 lockdown showed that Poland had no problems transitioning to this working mode: either in terms of efficiency and comfort of IT specialists or other factors, such as the quality of Internet access or security of working with company equipment from home.
However, for various reasons, many companies prefer to have all or most of their team located in a single city. In that case, the first decision will be to choose a city. The most popular locations include Warsaw and Krakow, both having the largest number of IT professionals. However, one must expect more competition for talent here, also from branches of well-known global companies, and also higher costs. Thus, in some cases it may be a good idea to ask us about other cities with good technical universities (there are 23 of them in Poland).
Once you have selected the city (or cities) to locate your team, the next step is to decide on your office (if any). We will be happy to provide tips in this respect, with contacts to owners of offices for rent or sale. Poland offers plenty of choice when it comes to office space. Depending on your preferences, you might opt for co-working spaces, serviced offices, downtown skyscrapers or villas surrounded by greenery.
