Several dozen IT specialists will find jobs at the Prešov branch, working on software solutions at an international level, company spokeswoman Jana Krajčovičová told the TASR newswire. This provides an opportunity not only for experienced IT workers but also for students and fresh graduates. Unicorn Systems expects the number of its employees in Prešov to grow continuously.

“We decided to create a new development centre in eastern Slovakia because we need new employees to create a solid base for the future tasks of Unicorn Systems,” production stream director Richard Schwartz said. “We believe that there is huge potential among young and clever IT people.”

Unicorn Systems currently employs over 1,100 ICT specialists, managers and IT experts. The company has been continuously growing, developing and launching new projects, in a similar way to the entire IT industry worldwide. It has been operating since 1990 and has opened 15 development centres so far in Slovakia, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Ukraine.
