Refer to EPAM

Do you have friends who might be interested in joining the EPAM team? This is great news, as we are expanding our referral program so that non-EPAMers can also refer their friends to open positions in EPAM Ukraine for both in-office and remote positions. 

Starting now, you can submit your recommendations via our partner platform and receive bonuses if the specialists you refer join EPAM. The size of the bonus depends on the candidate’s technical level.



  • For each successful referral where the candidate is hired, the bonus amount specified for the specific role will be paid to the referrer within 30 calendar days from the date of hire.
  • All referral bonus amounts will be transferred by EPAM to administration in the national currency (UAH) at the exchange rate of the NBU as of the date of payment, and are subject to applicable local taxes.
  • All payments are processed by administration according to their payment Policies.
  • You will be notified by our ‘Refer to EPAM’ team if your referral is hired.
  • The bonus amount for a specific vacancy is not subject to negotiation at the submission stage.
  • The initial bonus amount may change if the candidate is assessed by EPAM at a different technical level (both lower and higher).
  • The bonus is paid if the candidate is hired within a month since the last contact at on the matter of the particular referral.
