Our story began when Chris met Oleg, Alex & Timur in 2001 on Elance and they built the application for his first startup. After working together exclusively for several years, we took on our first client, Ryan Carson, in 2005 and Flatstack (then known as Flatsourcing) was born. Peter came onboard as a partner in 2007 and leads up client development. We now have more than 70 talented engineers, designers and project managers in our Kazan office.
We were inspired by the book The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman to name our company Flatstack. We believe in the flat, connected world which has made it possible to build a globally distributed company like ours.
With a population of more than a million people, Kazan is Russia's eighth most populous city, but its called the country's "third capital". Kazan has 44 higher education institutions and a rich history in science and engineering education making it fertile grounds for the recruitment of new computer science grads.
We offer workshops in Ruby on Rails and iOS through FlatSchool to develop talent for Flatstack.
We have a diverse and talented team that grows every year. Each of our teams take on their own personality and love what they do. Our office is right next to a playground, we have a large open-plan office space, and everyone had a little fun with these pictures.
We have clients visit our office every year, and we'd love to have you come say hello.
