Poland has the most skilled
developers in the world.

Polish engineering teams have finished at the top of world programming competitions, including Google's Code Jam, Microsoft's Imagine Cup, Facebook Hacker Cup and TopCoder contest.

Poland's talent pool is in such high demand that global technology companies such as Google, Microsoft, Nokia and IBM have established offices in Poland over the past decade.

Warsaw Univerisity

Poland is home to a new generation of talented software engineers who seek innovative and challenging projects. This talent is the product of Poland's strong educational system, which stresses science, math and engineering at an early age.

Each year, skilled software engineers graduate from Poland's reputable technology universities. The Warsaw University of Technology and Lodz University rank among the top technology universities in the world and have produced some of Europe's brightest tech talent.

Poland is home to an emerging startup scene, with meetups, tech conferences and new software companies. The catalyst is Poland's strong technology universities, the exploding Polish private investment ecosystem and billions of dollars spent by the EU in an effort to grow Poland's entrepreneurial sector.

Google recognizes Poland's emerging startup ecosystem and recently opened “Campus Warsaw” in the Polish capital. The Campus is a space for entrepreneurs in Poland to learn, connect and build companies that will change the world. Campus Warsaw is a part of the Google for Entrepreneurs network.

If you ask a Polish software engineer what his favorite programming language is, you will get answers such as Ruby, Java and Angular.js. If you ask a Polish software engineer about his education, the response is often a PHD in Computer Science from one of Poland's top rated technology universities.

And finally, if you ask a Polish software engineer about his favorite television shows, the answers will range from Game of Thrones to Breaking Bad. Such is the Polish software developer: extremely smart, trained at a top technology university, English speaking with a dry and witty sense of humor.

Our Story

How we started

Sofomo was founded by Piotr Schumacher, a Polish software engineer. While working for a San Francisco-based startup in 2007, Piotr recognized the need for U.S and European organizations to tap into Poland's talented software engineering community.

Piotr launched Sofomo in 2010, focusing primarily on a single, large client based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Sofomo provides this client with numerous dedicated engineers who have helped significantly grow the client's user base, revenue and product portfolio.

Sofomo is now accepting new clients starting Fall 2016. Sofomo is interested in working with a select few innovative companies who want to scale their engineering teams with top talent.

How we're different

Sofomo is not a traditional development shop with engineers shared across multiple clients, building software solutions on a project-by-project basis. Sofomo takes a much different approach that leads to much better results for clients. Sofomo provides a DEDICATED TEAM of engineers that is fully integrated in clients' development process and managed by the client.

Sofomo streamlines the process of building an offshore team for clients. We recruit, hire, manage payroll and help integrate the newly formed team into each client's development process. Clients have direct relationships with their engineers, which typically last for multiple years.

One of Sofomo's key differentiators is it's talent. Sofomo is plugged into Poland's large technical talent pool, which is comprised of top-tier engineers who have a passion for solving technical problems.
