Ciklum – Why Work For Us?


We are your trusted partner in agile and cost-effective software development

Who We Are

Ciklum is an award-winning global IT company with Scandinavian roots and more than 13 years of experience in IT outsourcing. We recruit from a pool of more than 40,000 IT specialists throughout the world to build your development dream team, working closely with you to meet your needs from beginning to end.

Since 2002, our 90-plus in-house recruitment specialists have helped some of the biggest and most innovative brands hire and retain more than 2,500 developers in 9 locations across Eastern Europe and Asia. 

What We Do

Onshore, offshore or nearshore software development, in all these cases Ciklum's business model will save you up to 50% of costs. 

It is not similar to the freelance model, because you get an extension of own team. It speaks your language and works in your enterprise systems. We build a team, which you completely control. This model is scalable as you can add as many people to your team as you need or vise versa foreshorten it, as well as it is transparent since you always see what you pay for. 


Our Mission

Our entire focus is custom software development. During our 12 years in business, we have mastered every activity related to this service:

  • We empower you to innovate and grow your business. To reach this goal, we build, launch and support dedicated development groups which are tightly integrated with your organization and your way of doing business
  • We help you cut costs and realize faster times to market
  • Our highest value is the trust of our customers. In a partnership, we create approaches and solutions that break the traditions of IT outsourcing for your benefit
  • We take care of all formalities, and ensure productivity, manageability and transparency

Our Vision

Your company is at its best when you can focus on your main business goals. That’s why Ciklum takes care of all aspects of technical development for you, and integrates those developments with your existing organization.

IT solutions should improve performance and move your business forward. Ciklum’s approach is to provide a complete range of transparent and manageable services surrounding software development.

As your technology partner, we open new horizons for the future of your business!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ciklum (Kiev (Ukraine)) in April 2015.


    2 interviews only: one technical with the previous team lead, and one interview with the client. All interviews have been held sequentially one right after another. Technical interview was in Russian. Client interview was in English, because the client didn't speak Russian.

    Interview Questions
