For the last 26 years, we at CN Group have developed high quality, outsourced software for customers in Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the UK. Additionally we offer extensive QA management, testing and training services.

First rate technical skills, high quality standards, professional project organisation and sound business domain knowledge are keys to our success. Add to this geographic and cultural proximity - being close to customers is an important factor in successful outsourcing.

Who We Are

Founded by our Danish owners in 1994, we combine Scandinavian management style with competence and warm hospitality of the Czech, Slovak and Romanian people.

Our customers are leading businesses in the EU, in domains as varied as Finance, Aviation, Media & Publishing, Security and Telecoms. We are proud of our growing list of references, many of whom are now members of our innovative CN Group Partnership Programme.

We are flexible in our business arrangements and share the risks with our customers. Each customer is unique, and we make sure that for each we fashion a unique working relationship, so that we become a valued long-term partner.

Today we employ over 300+ people working for customers in our production centres in Prague (CZ), Bratislava (SK), Zlín (CZ) and Bucharest (RO).

CN University

We recruit actively to make sure that we can always meet our customers’ resource demands. In 2014 we launched the CN University to recruit and train new talents from scratch.

CN University is an on-the-job training programme, approximately 6 months in length, during which, students go through several phases. Each phase is focused on getting specific experience, building up to the required skill set for a professional junior developer.
