Russian, Ukrainian programmers eager to work in Belarus’ Hi-Tech Park

MINSK, 21 March (BelTA) – Russian and Ukrainian programmers are interested in working in the Hi-Tech Park in Belarus, BelTA learned from Valery Tsepkalo, Director of the Hi-Tech Park administration, at a press conference on 21 March.

“Mainly guys from Ukraine and Russia come to Minsk these days to get jobs in the Hi-Tech Park. But they are not Indians, Philippines, or Vietnamese. Although there are some companies, for instance, a lot of folks from Western Europe would love to work in Game Stream’s World of Tanks project. When a company goes global, it has certain knowledge, know-how, this is why ambitious young people are eager to work for it,” said Valery Tsepkalo.

Apart from that, proposals concerning undergraduate training for European specialists have been submitted. Valery Tsepkalo noted that not many foreign specialists are hired by the Hi-Tech Park. In his words, Belarusian companies are primarily interested in investing in specialists from Belarus instead of other countries.

“A lot of letters have been sent by undergraduate university students from Germany, France, Italy, who would like to come here and get undergraduate training in these companies. But when we forwarded these proposals to directors of the companies, they were not interested: if a person goes through undergraduate training and returns to the home country, the company will not benefit from it,” said the official.
