Foreign companies are paying more and more attention to Ukraine: there are over a thousand foreign IT companies in the country and over two thousand startups. Brands like Samsung, Oracle, Boeing and Ericsson open R&D centers in Ukraine. In fact, 80% of Ukrainian specialists work with clients from the US. Why is that so?

Excellent conditions to develop IT market

Ukraine ranks fifth in the top 25 IT-service exporters, and moreover it is the main market for outsourcing services in Eastern Europe. Developers are experts in the most popular programming languages like Java, JavaScript, PHP, Python, C#, C++ and Ruby. Besides that:

  • Ukraine is the leader in the number of Unity3D game developers and C++ engineers.
  • Ukraine ranks second in the number of JavaScript, Magento and Scala experts.
  • Local universities graduate 36,000 specialists every year, and Ukrainian polytechnic universities rank among the international QS World University 2018. This is several times higher than the statistics of graduates in many countries with highly developed technologies.

Attractive prices and high quality services

A great number of talented developers and competitive labor rates are two main factors that stimulate the active development of the IT industry in the country.

For example, software developers are paid 25-40 dollars per hour, which means their average monthly salary is around 2500-4000 dollars. Specialists from Western European countries or the United States with the same level of expertise get about $100 per hour. Thus, the annual salary of a developer in Ukraine starts from $35,000, while specialists from the US work for at least $100,000 a year.

Attractive tax rate (5% of taxes) and ten bank holidays are additional benefits for the employer. Just to compare, there are many cultural groups who live in Asian countries. Each has its own traditions and holidays, and the employees may want to go there on paid vacation.

Easy communication

Having a good command of English is a must for Ukrainian programmers. More than 30% of developers are fluent in English, and 39% of specialists have upper-intermediate level. Besides that, Ukrainian outsourcing has adopted features of American work ethic, which makes communication easier for US customers.
