Why IT outsourcing Ukraine?


Ukrainian IT is one of the discoveries of the past few years. Probably you have already heard about the popularity of hiring developers from this country. According to IT Ukraine Association, USA is the main consumer of Ukrainian IT outsourcing market, which takes 70% of industry export. European countries are in the second place, where the biggest consumers are Germany and Great Britain. Also, 5% of industry services have been exported to Israel, and the rest 4% has been shared between other countries.

The main question is what reasons make Ukraine one of the most attractive countries for software development outsourcing. Let's consider the advantages of choosing Ukrainian companies instead of many others from Central and Eastern Europe.

Convenient location

Ukraine is the biggest country in Europe with an area of 603,628 square kilometers where 42 millions of people live. It is based in the Eastern Part of Europe, so it takes only a few hours to get there. Also, it is really comfortable to communicate with the team from any place in Europe, because the time difference is only 1-2 hours.

The time difference between New York and Kiev is 7 hours. If your office is based in the USA you can sleep well when your team is working on the project. Also, you might schedule calls for every morning to discuss the progress, so you will not face the lack of communications.

Certified specialists

This is one of the main reasons why business searching for Ukrainian IT outsourcing companies. Ukraine ranks 4th on the number of certified IT specialist for the past few years right after the USA, India, and Russia.

Strong educational system

The main advantage is the high level of education and a possibility to study for free if your test results are high. Moreover, companies providing specialized courses with a variety of technologies. So, except basic knowledge from university (Java, PHP, Python etc.) part of students are getting practice on courses and training from leading industry companies.

Prices to quality

Ukrainian IT developers rank 2nd on JavaScript, Magento and Scala technologies. Also, 3rd on ASP.NET, Ruby, PHP, Node.js, PHP, and Python. But, when it deals with rates, the ranking will be lower than in the other European countries and the USA. This is one of the most important reasons why companies like Microsoft, Oracle, Google and many others are involving Ukrainian specialists.
