Carggo, a US-based e-logistics company, has announced that it is moving its software development center to Vilnius. According to Carggo, it chose Lithuania as an R&D hub due to the country’s IT talent, convenient infrastructure and excellent work/life balance. The Vilnius-based team will work on the company’s proprietary IT platform that is expected to launch on the US market in the third quarter of 2018.
“Vilnius won us over by its young talent, strong traditions of tech education, and a relatively small market which ensures that outstanding professionals are always visible,” Andrejus Mačianskis, the company’s CFO of Lithuanian descent who was born and raised in Russia, explains. “Besides, Vilnius already speaks for itself as the place-to-be for many international IT companies. This serves as testimony to the high level of technical expertise the local talent pool has to offer.”
During the summer of 2018, Carggo will relocate around 35 of its software developers from Russia, where it used to run most of its R&D operations. Mačianskis believes that lifestyle-wise the move will be an improvement for the team and the overall attractiveness of Carggo as an IT employer should increase.
