About Us

CHI Software is a team of like-minded professionals who put quality first on their priority list. We help businesses expand and make a positive change in people’s lives by building progressive solutions for web and mobile.

Our History

City Hall Illustrations.
First steps and further success

It all began with a small web studio named City Hall Illustrations (CHI), a team of ten enthusiasts, and a desire to create something exciting. The company started off as a digital agency providing UI/UX design and frontend development services for the local market.

In two years, we expanded our tech stack and expertise areas – the company started to grow. Soon after that, City Hall Illustrations turned into CHI Software Development Center.

Rapid progress. Backend era

Three years after the start, we became competent in Ruby, Python, Java, .NET, C++, and JavaScript – this is what we call our backend era. Strictly speaking, it has never ended since then because now we have dedicated departments for each of these programming languages.

During the same period, we started to explore new markets and, as a result, cooperate with clients from neighboring countries. It allowed us to grow our team from 10 to 30 people and strengthen our technical prowess.

New ground. Mobile & embedded era

The time came to push our boundaries and go beyond web development. We enriched our expertise with mobile and embedded app development services. Our team continued to grow and now counted 50+ experts.

 At this stage, we decided to share our experience and help young talents and beginners in the sphere. CHI launched its first corporate internship program with in-house mentors for students and postgraduates. This initiative aimed to build up and educate our team and enlarge the local IT community.

Discovering new markets: the US, Israel, and Western Europe countries

Our team was reinforced with more technical and non-technical specialists: QA engineers, business analysts, BI developers, along with managers in various spheres (HR, sales, project management, and account management). 

It allowed the company to explore new foreign markets: in the US, Europe, and Israel. Consequently, we opened our first foreign representative centers there and started to strengthen our international partnerships. At this point, CHI Software counted 200 experts.

Providing new services and keeping up with tech trends

Our new offerings to clients included full-stack development and quality DevOps services. We continued to aim high, and for this reason, we started to look into innovative technologies, such as big data, computer vision, and machine learning.

The expanded range of services required more development workforce, so in 2017, our team had 350+ experts on board.

Growing our clients network: entering Asian and Scandinavian markets

Two years later, CHI Software had three development centers in Ukrainian cities and continued to establish new international cooperations with clients in the Nordic countries. It is worth noting that our team first entered the Asian market by partnering with Japanese businesses.

Meanwhile, we strengthened our skills and knowledge in cloud computing. Several of our developers received AWS and Microsoft certifications, while the company became a Microsoft Gold Partner.

Growth through challenges: The Covid pandemic

The pandemic was a total shock for everyone in the world, including the CHI Software team. And just like the global business community, we had to be flexible and adapt our processes. We developed approved remote work guidelines and transformed our traditional working policy. 

At the same time, we continued to follow through on our goals and shifted our focus from outstaffing to outsourcing projects. Also, CHI Software opened a new development center in Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine, to expand our market presence in Eastern Europe.

Quality in the limelight: ISO certifications

We mean it when we say that quality is our number one priority. CHI Software received ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certifications to prove that we follow the highest quality standards and care about every project, regardless of its budget and duration. 

At the same time, our team was mentioned in several Clutch ratings among the leading IT service providers, including the AI and ML branches. It was a great present for our 15th birthday and a sign that we’re moving in the right direction.

Company Today

15 years have passed, and the company has grown from 10 to 600+ specialists. CHI Software is open to the world: we have five development centers in Eastern Europe and five more representatives in the USA, Western Europe, and Asia.

At this point, we can cope with a multitude of development challenges, as our team has specialists of any level and specialization. With 16 engineering and 5 product support teams, we cover the entire development cycle and or of its stages separately.

Our core offering now is building complex software for various industries, including but not limited to retail, fintech, insurtech, travel, and logistics. We realize that such sophisticated solutions must be supported by the highest quality standards, so we keep perfecting our expertise.

Thus, at the end of 2021, CHI Software became an ISO-certified company (ISO 27001 and ISO 9001) to ensure that the quality level of our services meets the latest industry requirements and our clients’ expectations on a global level. At the beginning of 2022, we received the status of the AWS Partner, putting our cloud computing services on a higher quality level.

Client testimonials

The Vodafone company successfully works with the mobile phone insurance company "Shid-Zahid", and the main criterion of the project’s success is the use of the INRISK platform, an online insurance portal developed by CHI Software. The concept of the INRISK platform fully coincides with the Vodafone Ukraine strategy to digitize offered services and shift them towards paperless technologies.
We can recommend СHI Software as a highly professional solution for insurance business management.
