The Benefits of Having IT Outsourcing Partner from Ukraine

While the cost of highly qualified intellectual labor in advanced economies such as The USA is constantly increasing, the maintenance of IT departments requires huge outlays. In order to reduce it, the smart choice is to transfer some part of in-house software development work abroad.

Such an approach to doing business has been used by many companies for decades. The list of those, who successfully outsourced their software development is full of both tech giants and small startups.

In 2019 IT outsourcing is new normal for tech entrepreneurs across the globe.  Probably another factor why tech outsourcing become so popular over the years is the fact that good software engineers are not easy to find. Usually, there are more vacancies than available professionals, so having an outsourcing partner in a location like Ukraine, where the IT industry is booming, gives you access to a large talent pool.

The Ukrainian IT industry employs around 120,000 highly skilled specialists.  Their number is constantly increasing and according to the forecasts of market experts, by 2025 it can even double.

Ukraine which is the top outsourcing destination as claimed by  Silicon Valley CEOs and 1st outsourcing market in Eastern Europe still shows great potential.

The largest Ukrainian cities such as Lviv, Kyiv, Dnipro, Odesa are vibrant IT hubs, where a number of tech events, conferences, workshops, and training programs take place. Ukrainian IT companies are actively collaborating with local universities to improve the technical education system. That is why now Ukrainian students have the opportunity to get a master’s degree in such cutting edge technologies like AI, Machine learning or IoT.

The rates of developers with the same knowledge and experience are significantly lower than in Western countries and can vary with an average between $ 25 per hour. Ukrainian developers have a very strong skill set. The most popular technologies among programmers are C/C++, Java, PHP, Front end, .Net, IOS, Android, JavaScript, Python, C#, Ruby, DevOps, etc. According to recent researches around 19% of developers have over 7 years of experience and have been working in top outsourcing companies on a variety of complex VR, AR, Big Data and Blockchain projects.
