Earlier this year we wrote a blog about Cluj-Napoca being the top IT outsourcing destination in Romania and the reasons we believe this is true. And we received quite positive feedback afterwards, which led us into thinking that a follow up blog would be appreciated by our readers.
While in the beginning it was growing at the same pace as the other main Romanian IT centers from the province, Iaşi and Timişoara, Cluj-Napoca managed to take off and gain a considerable advantage over the past recent years. Now the IT industry in Cluj-Napoca has reached an amplitude that allows it to be considered the main IT business pole after the capital Bucharest, shows The National IT Market Survey conducted by ARIES Transilvania's IT Cluster.
Cluj-Napoca is also known as the Silicon Valley of Romania, the #1 city in Romania for IT specialists looking for job opportunities. In fact, stats show that Cluj-Napoca is home to around 25.000 professionals who work in the IT industry. On the same note, 2 universities of Cluj-Napoca are amongst top 5 best universities that produce IT specialists in Romania.
