Ukraine is the best destination for you to employ any ideas in Web and Mobile software in 2021. Thanks to its abundance of highly-skilled engineers, the country has become a leading software provider in Europe. Ukraine software development companies offer a rich list of advantages that can be divided into four groups: location, labor pool, work approach, and national mentality.

We’ve researched each of these benefits in order to get to the essence of outsourcing software development market in Ukraine!

Ukrainian location


Suitable time-zone
Ukrainian time-zone is only one hour ahead of European countries and intersects with Australian and American time-zones, so you can get in touch with outsourced developers team with no impact on your own working schedule. In other words, Ukraine’s location allows better operational monitoring and gives ease of communication and project control.
Recruitment capabilities
The absence of strong legal restrictions or trade unions makes Ukraine one of the Top 3 outsourcing destinations. Ukraine is recognized as one of the best countries to outsource Web & Mobile development. Despite all political instabilities, the Ukrainian software market is growing rapidly. For now, it’s the only sector of the Ukrainian economy that is immune to the political and economic fluctuations. The sector is showing steady growth, which results in an increased number of jobs and salaries among the developers.
No rigorous visa requirements
Easy to apply and obtain a work permit/residence for foreigners. Ukraine is the largest country located in Eastern Europe. As it located on the crossroad of Europe – Russia – Central Asia – Middle East trade routes, the country appears to be an ideal place to establish a management center that controls entire business activity in the region.
Western orientation
Ukrainian software engineering industry is focused on the USA, European Union, and Australia market. Major software development companies in Ukraine have a partnership with recognized brands and leaders in the Internet industry. They are cooperating with Microsoft, Skype, Deutsche Bank, Apple, Bosch, eBay, Dell, Microsoft, and IBM. More than a hundred global major tech firms conduct R&D activities in Ukraine that leads to cost savings.

Valuable info
Check out top reasons why you should consider outsourcing the software development in our blog post dedicated to this topic.

Why Ukraine is the second Silicon Valley?

There are over 15,000 registered software outsourcing companies in Ukraine, most of them are integrated into the western business world. Visa and Uber invest in Ukraine and they tend to increase their influence on the market pouring the latest electronics, marketing, and management trends into the country. Uber is even opening its office in Kyiv which is known to be financially attractive to international investors. 

Labor pool

The professional workforce is the second major driver for the booming software product development in Ukraine. Proficiency and intelligence of the country’s engineers are the key elements for great results.

In 2018 there were over 160,000 tech workers, and in 2021 Ukraine’s software engineers pool is expected to surpass the 200,000+ mark.

Thanks to the high expertise of Ukrainian developers, the country retains leadership in Eastern Europe by volumes of orders in the region. Not to mention competitors: Russia, Poland and Belarus. The fact that 18 Ukrainian companies were included in the top-100 best IT companies in the world speaks for itself.

Map with ranking by programmers efficiencyStrong skillset

Ukrainian software engineers and freelancers are skilled in a variety of technologies and often are familiar with multiple programming languages. Especially in web technologies as there is a long-lasting demand for such services on the inner market too. That is why it is advised to find contractors for web software development in Ukraine.

Education 

Thanks to the educational model with an equal interest in humanities and natural science, CIS engineers are well-known for their spacious mind and unconventional approach to problem-solving.

At least 80% of Ukrainian specialists hold a bachelor’s degree. Over 80% of them are under the age of 30. That Y-generation is literally obsessed with technical innovations and implement all novelties.

In addition, many businesses recommended Ukrainian outsourcing software teams because they are good in English that will make the communication process easier.

Work Approach


Affordable prices
Compared to those cheaper offshore destinations like India, Philippines, or China, Ukrainian software outsourcing provides a superior price/quality ratio. If you want to feel the difference between the code quality of Ukrainian developers and those from India, you can always provide a code review. We bet the results will impress you deeply.

Tech-savvy
Ukrainians are up-to-date with recent innovations, because of their location and western-oriented minds. The broadband here is obscenely cheap and reliable, so there will be no issue in terms of connection to the outsourcing team.
Security
This is one of the biggest risks that a company takes with outsourcing. The insurance of copyright is the main goal. Unlike Chinese law, the Ukrainian legislation system guarantees copyright and has regulatory systems in place that enforce all NDA commitments.
Efficiency
It can be proved by many successful results and implementations. A good example is Grammarly and Viewdle startup, which developed the Face Detection technology, that has become a part of Google.
Contacting Ukrainian dev companies you would be most likely provided with a project manager who will coordinate the whole process and be the bridge between you and your remote team. 

Compared to Western countries, with the average price tag ranging from 60$ to 100$ per hour, the developers from Easter Europe are paid from 25$ to 50$ per hour.

Mentality

Ukrainians have the ability, despite many others, to think from the client’s perspective. You won’t have any cultural barriers and our communication in traditional Western-style always fulfills with a sense of humor but handles serious approach anyway.

Many software development companies in Ukraine provide “full-stack” development, mobile development, quality assurance. Therefore you can entrust the whole life-cycle of the project to one company that becomes your reliable outsourcing partner.

Cultural similarities allow you to find the most reasonable solutions in a more collaborative and less process-driven business environment. Compared to other great developer hubs such as India or China, Ukraine has less cultural differences with their counterparts. So you can be sure that Ukrainians are capable of implementing any top-notch ideas in reality.

Ukrainian outsourcing companies have a really attractive price. It is much lower than companies price in Eastern Europe and the quality is the same as that of European or American companies.
