Top IT companies in Armenia

Recently Armenia has been gaining fame as a burgeoning hub for technological innovation. This small but rapidly growing country has been making significant progress in information technology.

IT is one of the most logical choices for a country with limited land access to international trade routes.

I studied the press, company websites, LinkedIn profiles, and other sources to make this overview for you.

The growth of the Armenian IT sector

Armenia’s IT industry planted its first seeds during the final years of the Soviet Union. During that period, a lot of research and development centers specializing in electronics, computer science, and software engineering were present in the country. Armenia’s strong emphasis on education and technical training created a generation of tech-savvy professionals.

With the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Armenia faced political and economic challenges. A lot of professionals who were working in research institutions found themselves seeking new opportunities. This is how small software development companies came into existence.

The early 2000s was a pivotal shift for Armenia’s IT sector. The global software development boom was an excellent chance for the growth of tech startups. The country’s educated workforce and relatively low labor cost were attractive to many international investors and clients who were seeking to outsource their software development and IT services.

Keep in mind that Armenia was blockaded by Turkey and Azerbaijan at that time. So, traditional forms of cross-border commerce weren’t easily accessible for Armenian businesses. Therefore, the Armenian government focused on the IT sector and banking as the future of the country. Various initiatives were introduced to encourage entrepreneurship, including tax breaks, grants, and the establishment of IT education hubs like TUMO.

Today there are 2500+ registered software development companies according to 2019 official data. Armenia’s IT industry potential was noticed on the global stage, and Armenian startups are gaining recognition globally. The sector experiences an annual growth rate of about 20% and comprises a 5% share of the country’s total GDP as PwC reports.

Volo is a software development company. The company was established 16 years ago and has close to 300 employees in 3 different countries. It is one of the leading players in the Armenian tech market. Services include tech consulting, software development, cloud enablement and DevOps, etc. Not the most desired employer on the market since the results of their work are only visible in the B2B world, so people don’t get how cool is what this company can do. But I think they’re definitely worth looking at if you’re looking to understand our IT industry.

Wrapping up

Considering the favorable local and global environment, the IT sector in Armenia is very prospective. As you may have noticed, lots of local IT companies in Armenia have global origins. Notably, the number of those headquartered in the USA is notable, but they open local offices in Armenia and pay local taxes, and that is great.
