HiQ – a Nordic IT company listed on the Nasdaq Stockholm MidCap list – expands its new office in Gdynia.
Founded in 1995, the company has over 1 600 specialists in six countries. Its new Gdynia branch currently has two teams of software developers, but the company is already planning to at least double the staff during the next year.
– The idea of HiQ investing in Pomerania started early in 2017 when we discussed with one of our customers their successful investment in a shared service centre in Gdansk – says Jukka Rautio, Managing Director at HiQ Finland. – That was the initial motivator for us to consider making a similar move. When we looked closer, we saw that Tri-City is a unique and one of the top locations in Poland, with many companies from the Nordics already present here.
Although HiQ Poland currently delivers software solutions chiefly to its Nordic customers, it’s also open to expanding the customer base in Poland and Central Europe. In that scenario, the local team in Gdynia will not only support projects and customers in the Nordics but also in Poland and the nearby countries.
– We are glad that a company whose business is developing and modernizing the business services sector has chosen our region – comments Bartosz Wojtasiak, project manager responsible for the IT sector at Invest in Pomerania – Presence of HiQ can be directly aligned with the maturation process of those operations in the Pomerania region.

Looking for IT talents
HiQ’s Gdynia branch focuses on the integration of complex IT systems. Its consultants – all software engineers – help the customers to automate business processes and reduce manual repeatable work.
– IT systems integration and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) enables our customers to scale their business and reduce costs, empowering their employees to do more demanding tasks related to business development – says Dawid Wacławski, HiQ Poland Site Manager. – Our branch also supports customers in simplifying their software architecture. Using Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) provides a seamless and secure connection of everything in the cloud and on-premises.
The team in Gdynia works hand in hand with colleagues in Finland and other Nordic countries, cooperating on multinational projects for international customers. Polish branch employees are a mix of experts, developers with few years of experience in IT, and talented juniors.
– We see Tri-City as a place that attracts an impressive number of highly skilled IT professionals, with thousands of motivated IT students willing to start their career in this sector – says Jukka Rautio.
