A warm welcome

“I accidentally got involved in one of the relocation chats on Telegram, and started helping people coming from Russia. I suggested to have a meetup focused on IT because there were many experts that have come here.”

“Some people have already settled down and now ask where they can learn Kazakh. I think, it’s great! They are interested in places to improve their skills in IT and other areas. People are open to a new culture, and I even get messages about events for celebrating Nauryz.”

Money talks

“Firstly, we aim to inform the foreign audience about the IT market in Kazakhstan to help them form a picture and expectations of the quality of life and salaries. We hope to see experienced middle and senior candidates that our labor market lacks. Those who can ‘nurture’ our guys and improve business and technological processes.”

Now for the hot topic

“This will be beneficial for the Kazakh IT industry as many startups and companies focus on the local market only. Russian developers have experience working in international projects, and they know how to scale them. Say, if Kazakh companies aim at a market of 10 million, for Russian projects, it’s for 100-million clients. Consider Yandex, for instance.”

Olzhas Satiev, CEO of TSARKA

“The need for quality staff and strong developers is huge in Kazakhstan. We need tens of thousands of workers in different IT areas. Not being able to find a job shouldn’t be a concern. People will be motivated to improve their skill level and exchange knowledge.”

Olzhas Satiev, CEO of TSARKA

Not saying goodbye

“It was a warm, friendly, and productive evening at the same time. The KHS HUB holds meetings on a regular basis for IT specialists in different areas. This was the first meeting of its kind, and it was, in my modest opinion, very successful. During the event, I was already asked ‘when is the next meeting?’. Our platform is always open and ready for these events.”
