  • Depending on the position, EPAM employees may need to work at a client worksite or an EPAM office. To protect employees and help communities fight the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccination is required to visit a EPAM office in the US, and many of our clients have similar policies in place. Due to this, a COVID-19 vaccination may be necessary and when applicable, specific details will be discussed during the interview process which may include providing proof of vaccination. For candidates with exceptional circumstances that prevent them from getting the COVID-19 vaccine, we will offer alternative reasonable accommodation, where possible, which should be coordinated by your recruiter and discussed directly with an HR Representative
