"EPAM's latest delivery center in Malaga will be a best-in-class Financial Services Center, as well as a Digital Design and Digital Transformation Hub within the EU, adding to our existing financial services and engineering capabilities in Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic and Bulgaria," said Balazs Fejes, EVP and Head of Financial Services, EPAM. "EPAM Malaga is already supporting international hedge funds and investment banks in compliance with the most stringent European and North American regulations, as well as delivering digital transformation and design projects for our eCommerce and retail customers."
The office is in Malaga, Andalusia, the third largest information technology region in Spain, where many global technology leaders have expanded their service and operation centers. With EPAM's new Digital Engineering Center, the company hopes to position the office as a premium services destination.
"Malaga, a technology center for almost two decades, has recently attracted more multinational companies who are taking advantage of the exceptionally attractive quality of life, and the influx of some of the best talent from Spain, as well as the Americas, Western and Eastern Europe and Asia," said Viktar Dvorkin, SVP & Head of Global Delivery, EPAM. "In our industry, the war for talent is real. By placing our office in Malaga, which offers a balance of business opportunities, creative inspiration and an enjoyable lifestyle, we increase our chances of EPAMers rotating and continuing to work with us, and attracting and retaining the highly-skilled talent that clients want working on solving their most complex challenges."
EPAM Malaga, located in the PISCIS Center, just 700 meters from the beautiful coast, provides a unique combination of professional opportunities and an appealing lifestyle for global software engineering professionals to work in various industries, such as financial services, travel and hospitality, life sciences and healthcare, and retail.

In addition, the Company's 'EPAM Without Borders' career program helps talent find exciting customer projects around the world, which provides limitless opportunities in Spain and 25 other countries.
Francisco De La Torre, Mayor of Malaga, commented "Malaga was early to recognize the importance of new economies from technology innovations, digital transformation and changes from social innovations. Early recognition and action from the city allowed Malaga to lead economic growth in the Andalusian region, as well as attract foreign investors. Malaga is now one of the EU's fastest-growing, most desirable destinations for technology companies. We are delighted to welcome a world-class organization like EPAM to our innovative ecosystem and look forward to growing together with them."
