DataArt reiterated its commitment to Cyprus’ business community
DataArt, a global software engineering firm recently marked its first year in Cyprus, an event which coincided with the opening of its new premises in Larnaca.
Since first expanding its presence by opening an office on the island in May 2022, DataArt’s newest location continues to grow, with more than 50 members of staff currently employed in Cyprus.
“As part of our ‘people first’ approach, DataArt intentionally selected Larnaca as the city for our new office, because of its convenience for our employees,” Head of DataArt Cyprus Ilya Aristov said.
In addition, Aristov noted that “remarkably, 70 per cent of DataArt’s relocated staff have chosen to settle in Larnaca”.
“The city boasts excellent logistical advantages, since with its proximity to the airport, Larnaca is easily accessible for business meetings in Nicosia – not to mention, it’s convenient for attending events and leisure activities in Limassol,” Aristov explained.
“DataArt remains committed to hiring talents across the island, and is open to establishing offices or coworking spaces in other cities if necessary,” he added.
What is more, the company noted that the new DataArt office is located in Larnaca’s prime business centre, near the marina and Finikoudes Beach, with beautiful views of the sea.
Due to this reason, the company explained that although remote work is permitted within the company, many colleagues prefer working from the office.
The grand opening of the new office, which took place on June 8, was attended by Dmitry Bagrov, who serves as the managing director of DataArt’s operations in the United Kingdom.
Bagrov explained that in the ever-evolving world of technology and software development, having a global presence is key.
For DataArt, he continued, a global software outsourcing company, “it is crucial to have a presence in Cyprus, a country that is strategically located at the crossroads of three continents: Europe, Asia, and Africa”.
“Having an office in Cyprus not only allows DataArt to tap into the local pool of talented IT professionals, but it also enables the company to provide better service to its UK and European clients due to the favourable time zone, geographic proximity, and cultural familiarity,” Bagrov said.
Additionally, he explained that Cyprus’ business-friendly environment and strong economic ties with the UK make it an excellent choice for expansion and fostering business growth.
“With a presence in Cyprus, DataArt is well-positioned to continue delivering high-quality software solutions to its clients in the UK, Europe, and beyond,” Bagrov concluded.
Furthermore, DataArt stated that it continues to leverage its expertise and global presence to deliver innovative IT solutions and services to clients worldwide.
“Our expansion into Cyprus further solidifies our commitment to growth and supporting the local business community,” the company said in a statement.
“Cyprus’s geographical location, at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, and Africa, as well as its highly skilled, multi-lingual workforce, robust legal framework, and business-friendly environment, makes it the ideal investment destination for tech and business,” it concluded.
