IT Companies in my town (Nis, Serbia, Eastern Europe)

Serbia, Europe
Nis, Serbia
Nis, Serbia

The town of Nis (Niš, pronounced Niche) with its population of over 300,000 people is the University center of the South Serbia. South Serbia is the region with the lowest average salaries, broken industry (including EI Nis electronics which was the symbol of my town 20 years ago), it is often forgotten by government centered around Belgrade, etc. etc (there are numerous places in Serbian language containing more detailed ramblings (complaints mostly) on the current state in the region).

Being an optimist I tend to think that this hard economical situation has positively influenced the development of IT sector. There are numerous IT companies in Nis which are outsourcing partners of US and European companies (for example Accordia, Seavus, Youngculture). There are also companies that have their own products such as MotionDSP‘s video enhancment products or Atomia‘s server and hosting automation platform (they were also one of the Gold Sponsors of 2011 HostingCon). Please note that the above mentioned companies do not necessarily originate nor are completely located in Nis but have significant development resources located there. Also there are many freelancers including Genius-Tech, Disample, or individuals like me 🙂 who work from home. I’ve noticed that on freelancers from Nis are the majority of Serbian freelancers. For a more thorough list of IT companies in Nis take a look at the table below. The given list is unofficial and probably incomplete but helps in getting the overall picture. I’ll update the list with new info from time to time.

*No of employees in software department

**it is recognized among developers as the worst IT company in the region

***part of the team is in Nis

Please note: This table should be observed from a developers point of view -> potential employment opportunities. Therefore the employee numbers given represent the number of developers that work in Nis even though company could be located elsewhere. It is the same for technology column.

Update: I have updated employee numbers for Seavus, Horisen, Youngculture, SmartNet (Thanks for corrections)

Update 2: Added dualsoft and corrected info about youngculture having office in Novi Sad

Update 3: Updated employee number for Seavus from 25 to 58. Apparently the information I had before was too old.

Update 4: Added Energosoft and updated employee number for ING Software from 5 to 7

Update 5: Corrected info about logik

Update 6: Added Kraftwerk, Diyomi, EtonDigital, Megalink

Update 7: Added FutureForward, corrected info on Megalink (megatrend actually)

Update 8 (June 25, 2012): Changed the number of employees for younify. Added StangaOne1.

Update 9 (July 16, 2012): Updated info for Ates nearsourcing (number of employees, technologies)

Update 10 (February 26, 2013): Added 3 new companies: DMV, Tehnopetrol as advised by Miljan and a new startup in Nis – Mainframe2. Corrected salary info (upper limit and percentage below 1000e).

The information about salaries is not given for obvious reasons, but for Nis they are within range 500e – 2400e net (for gross value add 40% to that number). Approximately 70% of developers have less than 1500e.

For more details about any of the above mentioned company you can check with provided links or you can contact me (email: sfsgagi attt gmail dottt com or on twitter @draganstankovic) and I would be very glad to help in making contact for you or to direct you in the proper way.

It’s good to be a developer in Nis 🙂

    This posting on the internet through Expertaya is so refreshing. Nis will become a new center of excellence for the IT and electronics industry for sure. It’s already starting — it’s just that the political leaders in Belgrade cannot see beyond the Danube and the Sava rivers… They forgot that Nis is only two hours away by car, and when the new motorways between Sofia and Macedonia/Greece are finished late next year, Nis will only be two hours away from several European capitals and five million people. Go Naissus!

    @Philip Bay
    Sorry for delay in approving your comment. I was very busy and had to clean a lot of spam to reach it.

    Verovatno najbolje pozicionirana niska firma na envato (themeforest, codecanyon) marketima

  29. sw-Ag Avatar

    Šuška se da su se ovi veći sa liste dogovorili oko maksimalne plate prema pozicijama, preko kojiih neće da idu. Tako da tavorimo iza BG i NS po platama, a kome se ne sviđa neka lance-uje ili neka se seli. Pa bi mogao jedan blog post da padne na tu temu a Gagi? 🙂

  30. gagi Avatar

    Mislim da to nije tačno.Stvar je ponude i tražnje tj. za dobre ljude se ovi najveći itekako otimaju. Takođe, iako plata igra veliku ulogu postoje i druge stvari koje su bitne kada neko bira gde će da radi (tehnologije, ljudi, radno vreme, …)

    Po mom mišljenju značajnija razlika u plati jeste postojala ali pre jedno 10-ak godina. Sada ne.

    Koliko mislite da su plate u NS i BG?

    Update: EtonDigital ima 15 radnika, bavi se i Mobile development-om.

    Млађо, Ваш коментар ми био аутоматски убачен у спам (вероватно због броја линкова у њему) а мало сам и изгубио контакт са нишком сценом јер од 2015 живим у Калифорнији (San Francisco, Bay Area).
    Надам се да листа и даље користи људима а трудићу се да ажурирам и убацујем све што сазнам (преко пријатеља, коментара, а може и директно на sfsgagi ет џимејл . ком 🙂
