Who are you?

Integrify is a company enabling integration of immigrants by means of technology. The company was established to respond to the growing Pan-European need of integrating newcomers and empowering them to start living a normal life in their new home countries. Moreover, with an aging European population and a growing gap between supply and demand in programming and information technology jobs, we see the influx of newcomers opportunity for Europe to solve two big problems at once.
