Together, HTEC and SYRMIA provide digital product development and hardware and software engineering services to companies, startups, and global enterprises.

Since its inception in 2008 in Belgrade, HTEC now has 23 development centers primarily across Southeast Europe and creative and consulting offices in Silicon Valley, London, New York, Minneapolis, Amsterdam, Stockholm, and Gothenburg. By combining design thinking with software engineering, HTEC supports global clients with end-to-end digital product development, from strategy and conceptualization to digital product design and engineering.
