The demand for software is at an all-time high, yet there aren’t enough people with sufficient programming skills to fill the need. The war for talent is tougher than ever before; hence, salaries surge. That’s why more and more companies in the USA and Europe are using staff augmentation services and hiring remote developers to join their teams from abroad.
While saving money is probably the most important reason for IT outsourcing, choosing the right location for your remote development team can benefit your business in several other ways. If you’re based in Europe, it would make more sense to opt for nearshore staff augmentation and take a closer look at the Eastern European region as your outsourcing destination. Eastern European countries — particularly Poland, Romania, Ukraine, and Belarus — are ranked among the top 30 most attractive outsourcing destinations worldwide. Among them, Ukraine takes the lead in IT outsourcing. In 2019, the country moved up four positions and made it to top-20 most attractive outsourcing destinations worldwide according to the latest A.T Kearney Global Services Location Index report. While its CEE neighbors show a decline in the ranking, Ukraine is pulling ahead!
There are several other compelling reasons for Europe-based companies to opt for nearshore development team in Ukraine. The country has a rich talent pool of skilled developers available on the job market, there are no great cultural differences, and communication is fast and efficient with only a few hours time difference and no language barriers.
One of the key benefits of nearshore custom software development is that your team will be close enough to communicate with you efficiently throughout the workday. Ukraine is just one hour ahead of most European countries and two hours ahead of London time. There’s a substantial business-day overlap between time zones, and you can quickly address any questions related to your project.
Nearshoring is a better option when it comes to cultural affinity. Nearshore outsourcing allows you to work with developers who understand your culture and have the same get-up-and-go attitude towards deadlines and goals. Ukrainian developers have a positive, result-oriented mindset and high responsibility. They’re open to feedback, ready to take challenges, and willing to share their experiences with their Western colleagues.
Nearshoring provides for shorter travel times for onsite visits, making it much easier for teams to work together if needed. That said, Ukraine’s geographical location makes it easier for partners and teams to meet face-to-face with each other, and it will cost you less in terms of time and money than with most offshore firms outside the region. Most Ukrainian cities are just 2-3 direct flight hours away from major European capitals.
One of the primary reasons for hiring an augmented team in Ukraine is the price. Lower costs of living, cheap tech education, short travel distances, and a wide talent pool make operating a software development team in Ukraine a very cost-efficient choice for clients from Western Europe. Ukraine offers more competitive outsourcing rates paired with a much wider tech talent pool than its CEE counterparts.
