Y Soft opens new R&D center in Ostrava, Czech Republic

Y Soft, a leading enterprise office solutions provider, announced today the opening of a new development center in Ostrava city, Czech Republic. The new office will help with the company’s future growth plans for expanding the R&D department. Ostrava becomes Y Soft’s third R&D center with others in Brno (headquarters) and Prague.
Y Soft chose the Ostrava region because of the high density of technical talent made possible by the nearby university and other technical centers. Currently Y Soft’s R&D group has 160 team members. The Ostrava office has the capacity for 40 additional workplaces and Y Soft plans to fill this capacity over the next several months with local talent from the region.  

The YSoft SAFEQ enterprise workflow solution platform is used by the world’s largest companies around the world. The platform is embedded in the manufacturers of multifunction devices (MFDs) that organizations use for printing and scanning to reduce costs, improve employee productivity and increase document security. The R&D team in Y Soft’s Ostrava office will work on these embedded solutions to add new features and functionality that the market demands.   

Jan Dudek, head of Ostrava’s R&D team explains, “For our embedded solutions, we are looking for candidates experienced with Java and .NET development and QA Engineers. We are looking for both senior developers and entry-level candidates who just finished their degree. That’s why one of our priorities is to build a working relationship with the Ostrava university, VŠB-TUO. We are already offering internships and planning other activities to get to know students and other experienced candidates in the area.”

Ondrej Krajicek, CTO, Y Soft added, “As an innovation-driven technology company, almost half of our staff work in R&D. Our demand for IT talent is growing and we are competing with other companies. We expect that expanding to Ostrava will help us with our technical hiring needs and meet our goal of being an example of a successful, global Czech company that contributes back to our communities.”
