Gallantra is privileged to be headquartered in the beautiful waterfront city of Odessa, a 1-million strong megalopolis in South-Western Ukraine, often referred to as the "Pearl of the Black Sea". The city doubles in brass as one of the nation's largest sea ports and a universally known resort that receives some 1.5 million domestic and international visitors annually.

Sporting astounding architecture and a diverse multitude of sights, Odessa is rapidly gaining importance as a major player on the nation's IT scene. It is now home to dozens of R&D centers of Ukrainian, US, Swedish, Danish and other software development companies and ranks among the Top 4 of the nation's software development hub centers. Odessa's attractive location and its vibrant and rapidly growing IT community have become the main two reasons why it is now the seat of a growing number of popular IT events, including the awesome annual Black Sea Summit (http://blacksea-it.com/en/) IT conference visited in 2016 by some 500 participants from both Ukraine and overseas.

Currently, the number of software engineers and other IT experts in Odessa is estimated at some 10 000 +. There are several institutes of higher learning in the city that train IT experts. They include Mechnikov Odessa National University, Odessa National Academy of Telecommunications after Popov, Odessa National Polytechnic University, Odessa National Academy of Food Technologies, Odessa State Environmental University and STEP Academy.

Odessa is an ideal place to visit on business and do business with. It is hospitable, safe to travel to, open-minded, outgoing, just "next door" to Western Europe and relatively easy to reach from elsewhere in the world.

While Gallantra is headquartered in the city of Odessa, two of our R & D offices are based in Ukraine’s premier software development hub centers of Kharkiv and Lviv, both of which are renowned for a very large number of institutes of higher learning, scientific research institutions and R & D facilities of international software development companies.

Both cities are home to several of the nation’s flagship technical universities, including Kharkiv National University of Radio and Electronics (Khnure), Kharkiv National Polytechnic University, Kharkiv National Aerospace University after Zhukovsky and Lviv National Polytechnic university. The latter is known for the large number of AIand NLP graduates and their significant professional potential. In addition, we also benefit from our in-depth expertise in managing distributed teams and employ creme-de-la-creme NLP, Machine Learning, and Big Data professionals nationwide, including the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv.
