Ukrainian Web Developers Are Highly Educated

Ukraine has a talent pool of over 200,000 highly-qualified IT professionals. Every year, more than 36,000 students graduate from Ukrainian universities with degrees in IT-related fields, meaning that number will only continue to grow. 

In fact, Ukraine’s tech sector boasts more specialists in certain programming languages than some Western countries, despite having a smaller population. 

There are approximately 9,000 PHP developers in Ukraine, for example, while in the United States there are only 7,000. Python developers in Ukraine (3,000) outnumber python developers in the United Kingdom (2,000).

85% of Ukrainian developers also speak English at an upper-intermediate level or higher, making it easy for them to communicate with clients from all over the world. 

An Extension Of Your In-House Team 

Web developers in Ukraine are not only highly-skilledthey possess a strong work ethic that leaves a lasting positive impression on their clients. 

You don’t have to worry about sacrificing your company culture when you outsource web development to Ukraine. 

The founder of Jarrang, a digital marketing agency based in the United Kingdom, found that working with a web developer in Ukraine was the best solution for his business. According to him, Ukrainian developers “are as dedicated to success as our own internal people. We see an extension to our team.”

Located In The Heart Of Europe

Ukraine has a 1-2 hour time zone difference with its European neighbors and 7 hours with the East Coast of the United States.

This means that you should have no issue keeping in touch with a remote team of Ukrainian developers via Zoom, Slack, or whatever your preferred channel of communication may be.

The founders of Vive, a Dutch investment app, chose to work with a remote team of Ukrainian developers due to the fact that big companies in the Netherlands often snatch up local talent by offering them more competitive salaries.

According to Vive’s executive team, Ukraine’s close location was a motivating factor, as well as the shared cultural values between both countries. Vive’s remote team of Ukrainian developers even had the chance to visit the Netherlands to engage in team-building activities with their in-house colleagues.

Ukraine: The Silicon Valley Of Eastern Europe?

In recent years more than 100 companies have set up R&D centers in Ukraine. These software development offices are convenient and cost-effective, which is why companies like Google, Reddit, and Samsung are tapping into the Ukrainian tech sector’s huge potential.

Setting up an R&D center in Ukraine usually requires the assistance of an intermediary, however. Navigating the legal system of a foreign country, especially when there is a language barrier, can be tricky. 

For this reason, many foreign companies choose to partner up with local firms that offer staff augmentation services to build a cross-functional remote team.

Daxx is a Netherlands-based software development and technology consulting company that helps companies worldwide hire experienced software engineers remotely. Its offices are located in several of Ukraine’s major tech hubs: Kyiv, Dnipro, Khariv, and Lviv.
