Working from a war zone: Ukrainian IT pros share their experiences

Earlier this year as Russian troops massed along the Ukrainian border, Israel-headquartered Beewise offered to relocate each of its Ukraine-based technologists and up to 10 of their family members with all expenses paid for six months. Diana Lisovenko, a software engineer from Ukraine’s capital city of Kyiv, decided to stay put. She thought the chances of war were slim. “I thought there was a 5% possibility,” she said. “Who would have thought in the 21st century such a thing would happen?” Speaking in mid-March via Zoom, Lisovenko said she spends her mornings as a volunteer ferrying food to the city’s remaining residents and to the soldiers defending them, driving in a car she rented in late February just as Russia started its attack on her country.
