IT industry in Wroclaw

IT industry is a big piece of Wroclaw economy

Wroc-love IT industry

The IT industry in Wroclaw needs more and more people. Many companies, thanks to low costs and well-qualified employees, have decided to open a business in Poland. Wroclaw is a city that is very friendly to employees in the IT industry.

How to get a job in the IT industry in Wroclaw

In Poland, we have a so-called “employee market”. This means that employees have no major problems finding a job. Employers must themselves seek for an employee. In the IT industry in Wroclaw, this is particularly evident because many IT companies have chosen this place for their headquarters. In addition, many older people are afraid of working in the IT industry. This has meant that some companies, such as NOKIA, have created their own programming program – they invite their new employees to it and pay them for learning during the first two months of work!

How to start?

Well, it’s best if you already have experience in the IT industry. If this case, you can probably start working immediately in a position that you know the most about. The IT industry in Wrocław is looking for many front-developers and end-developers as well as IT specialists to maintain systems. If you do not know much about programming or fiber optics, do not worry :). You don’t have to study for 5 years at the Polytechnic to find employment in the IT industry. Often IT companies will teach you everything themselves. If you want to increase your chances of recruitment, it is worth signing up for a monthly, intensive course of one of the programming languages. The IT industry in Wroclaw is looking for specialists who know C ++, Java, Python, SQL. Such courses can often be found on online platforms (Coursera, Futurelearn etc.).

Not only the biggest ones

The IT industry in Wroclaw is a lot of big companies, but also small ones, sometimes one-person ones. They often start like my friend’s story: She had a good idea, she wanted to create a small application. She hasn’t any IT experience, so she decided to meet an IT worker. He helped her to create a new application for the phone, and now both can collect profits.

The IT industry in Wroclaw is also responsible for the fact that many companies from other industries are largely automated. It’s not only about aviation, automotive, but also, for example, law firms. Thanks to which they can bring higher profits. The IT market is constantly growing, and more people from the IT industry moving to Wroclaw have no problem finding a well-paid job.

Coworking Spaces in Wroclaw

coworking spaces

Nowadays more and more people start working online and remotely. Coworking spaces were created to serve the needs of remote workers. It is a new trend in organizational structure of companies which is gaining momentum worldwide. Wroclaw is not an exception.

What coworking spaces are

Coworking spaces are fully equipped spaces for work which can be rented by anyone for some period of time – day, week, month, several months, etc. Who are the clients of coworking spaces? They are usually people who work remotely or are freelancers (programmers, translators, designers, etc.). They use common office space for their activities.

Coworking is something between using a separate office and working at home. Coworking centers have all the furniture necessary for work and rest. There are

  • computers (although coworkers more often bring their own laptops) connected to high-speed Internet,
  • office equipment, e.g. printer, scanner,
  • the kitchen with a dispenser, a microwave oven and a coffee machine.

It has a friendly working atmosphere, that’s why a lot of people start working in coworking spaces and coworking spaces are getting popular.

Advantages and disadvantages of coworking spaces

I will start with advantages:

Working atmosphere. It is easier to be focused on work and not to be distracted in comparison to working from home.

Networking. You can find contacts with new people who are experts in their fields. You are surrounded by people who are here on business, unlike visitors of other places (cafes, parks, etc.). It’s possible to make new interesting acquaintances while working in a mixed office.

Meeting with clients. It’s possible to have official meetings in coworking spaces whereas it wouldn’t be very convenient at home.

Personal and professional development possibilities. Coworking centers often organize different workshops, seminars and lectures.

As for disadvantages, they are:

  • Rental payments. Although renting a working place in a coworking space is cheaper than renting a separate office, but it is still more expensive then working from home.
  • Contacts with people. I listed networking as an advantage, but it can be a disadvantage as well because you can just spend the whole day talking to people instead of working.
  • Information security. You have to be aware that in coworking spaces it’s easy to still your ideas, so it’s necessary to take preventive measures while working there.
