Companies in the USA and Western Europe often struggle to find the right resources for their software development needs. The demand for qualified software developers is growing at a much faster rate than the number of developers entering the workforce. There are already more jobs than applicants in the software development field, and the gap keeps increasing. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of software engineers is projected to grow 21 percent by 2028, which is “much faster than average”.
Companies aren’t just looking for some people to fill the jobs. They want proficient experts with the right mix of up-to-date skills, values, experience, background, and reasonable salary requirements. This makes the talent pool even more restricted. As a result, more and more companies find the advantages of offshore software development attractive and hire offshore dedicated developers abroad.
We're an offshore development company located in Ukraine. Let’s take a look at just some of the reasons why Ukraine is one of today’s most attractive software outsourcing destinations in the world.
One of the biggest assets of the Ukrainian IT market is its vast talent pool of IT professionals with top quality skills. Over 60% of Ukrainian developers work in outsource IT service companies, lending their skills to a variety of different projects and industries.
Ukraine is home to 150 technical universities producing around 23,000 technical specialists annually. New STEM programs are launched every year with support from the biggest IT companies. Therefore, the talent pool is steadily growing both in its quantity and quality.
Ukraine is Europe’s largest exporter of IT services. More than 110 companies and startups have R&D offices in Ukraine. According to UNIT.City, Ukrainian exports of IT services will be $5.4 billion in 2020 and $8.4 billion in 2025. The largest partners are the USA, the EU, and Israel.
Ukraine ranks 20th on the 2019 Kearney Global Services Location Index of the most attractive outsourcing destinations. The country ranks 11th with an overall score of 88,7 out of 100 points on the HackerRank’s list of top 50 countries with the best software developers in the world.
The war for talent is pushing up salaries for top-tier professionals. Across Europe, salaries for a software developer vary from $42 to over $70 per hour. In Ukraine, you can easily find a senior-level developer at about $35/hour, thanks to the country’s lower cost of living.
English is a must-have skill for those working in the global IT industry. Ukrainian IT specialists are proficient in spoken and written English. They can easily communicate with English-speaking clients and leverage all the latest resources related to their work.
