Founders Nick Mikhailovsky, Anton Malkov and three others (since gone) started NTR Lab after launching one of the world's largest EFT system for Central Bank of Russia. Our first projects as NTR Lab were for Russian Standard Bank and ASP-db
DogBreath software's CTO hired two outsourcing companies, NTR Lab and another, to finish building The Digital Office for Endodontist. Shortly after the full team was built combining internal and NTR developers and the second company was relegated to testing.
As the Russian economy grew and the tech sector heated up quality talent became more expensive. To maintain a healthy price/performance ratio we opened a second development office in Russian university city of Tomsk. Currently, most of our developers are located there.
WorldCompliance hired its first 4 people in Tomsk and grew to 22 by the time it was acquired by LexisNexis. Since then LexisNexis almost doubled the Tomsk team and became our largest customer
Novokuznetsk dev was spun off as Sinergo, a separate business within NTR Group doing systems integration for the open pit mining industry. Sinergo is now as large as NTR Lab
Our first full-blown startup POIdo was a location-based advertising platform. We not only learned building advertising-scale systems, but also got firsthand startup experience from ground up and inside out. POIdo won the 2010 Geo-Loco Startup Competition and several other awards.
We opened additional offices in Kharkiv, Ukraine and Minsk, Belarus to facilitate international expansion, mitigate political risks and increase the accessible talent base.
