About Tallium

Tallium — це команда вже з понад 90 осіб, яка розробляє класні комплексні рішення та продукти у сфері IT. Компанія розпочала свій шлях у 2012 році, і за цей час успішно реалізували безліч проєктів різної складності.

В основному ми займаємося аутсорсингом та аутстаффінгом. Також у нас є власний продукт - iDealer, який ми активно розвиваємо і яким пишаємося.

iDealer — це система управління сервісними шатлами для автодилерів у Канаді та США. Він уже став офіційним партнером Uber, адже ми додали вбудовану інтеграцію з Uber в саму програму.

Ми активно працюємо над проектами в таких напрямках:
- Banks and fintech;
- E-commerce;
- Education;
- Real Estate;
- Social Apps etc.

Ми допомагаємо бізнесам розвиватися. Ми з легкістю знаходимо спільну мову як зі стартапами, так і з давно відомими та успішними компаніями. Ми знаходимо точки дотику і допомагаємо їм переосмислити їх поточні рішення і разом вигадуємо та створюємо нові. Наша команда використовує для цього сучасні технології розробки та можливості ведення проєктів.

У нас дуже сильна експертиза в UX/UI: ми тісно співпрацюємо з клієнтом та кінцевими користувачами, аби створювати рішення, які вони справді полюблять.

З прикладами наших робіт можна ознайомитись на сайті компанії. Ми намагаємося урізноманітнити наше сервіс-портфоліо проєктами різної користі та складності, і надати нашим співробітникам свободу у виборі технологій та рішень, а також можливості для розвитку та кар'єрного зростання.

Починаючи працювати в Tallium, ти приходиш, в першу чергу, в команду, а не на проєкт. Ми не змушуємо потенційних співробітників проходити співбесіду із замовником, і якщо проєкт закінчився, ми відразу ж підберемо тобі новий.

Наш стек включає, але не обмежується такими технологіями, як:
* PHP (Laravel, Symfony), Java;
* JavaScript (Angular, React);
* Kotlin, Swift, Flutter.

Наш офіс знаходиться у самому центрі Києва з видом на Олімпійський стадіон, лише 1 хвилина від метро. Наразі працюємо віддалено, але кожен охочий може працювати в офісі.

У Tallium ми дуже активно ведемо соціальне життя, у нас є окрема ігрова кімната зі зручними диванами, де ми граємо на PS4, настільний теніс та настільні ігри. Ми дуже любимо гучні корпоративи та раптові посиденьки кожної п'ятниці.
