It’s pleasant to announce that this year Cleveroad joined Norwegian Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce. NUCC was established to stimulate commercial cooperation between Ukraine and Norway. Consequently, the main purpose of this association is to encourage business connections between our countries and to contribute to building stronger business relationships.
2018 was rich in events. Not only have we been included to several rankings, but were working on other momentous changes.
We’ve completely redesigned our website and rebranded the company’s style. Why did we do it? Both of them were pretty obsolete, so our software engineers along with UI/UX designers took matters into their own hands and created something amazing.

Design of the website and logo are now stricter and aligned with our corporate style. In addition, the website’s structure was entirely rethought to become more data-rich and useful for clients. Specifically, we added more value to the portfolio page by inhabiting it with project details.
Talking of web development, here is an article explaining the website development team structure
This point should be mentioned additionally. Our software engineers managed to achieve a fantastic performance using innovative technology stack. It’s especially seen when you jump between pages of the website.
Our corporate colors have changed as well. We’ve moved away from a blue and red palette in favor of the grey and orange combination. Such a contrast has made our design look stricter yet not boring.
Cleveroad is in a constant search of talented specialists. We regularly hold traineeships for various positions to find people who are passionate about IT and give them an opportunity to start their career path.
This year the following traineeships were held:
- iOS developers — Kharkiv
- Android developers — Dnipro
- .NET developers — Dnipro
- Web developers — Dnipro
- Business Analysts — Dnipro
