Ukraine is one of the most digitalized countries in the world. It's the first country to launch a digital passport and the fourth to introduce driving licenses in Europe. IT outsourcing is one of Ukraine's strong suits. If you're still wondering why you haven't worked with development teams from Ukraine yet, let's find out why you should consider hiring Ukrainian software developers.
Strong tech skills
Ukraine is a country of educated people: 83% of the population have a college degree. Moreover, Ukraine has one of the biggest shares of engineering degree graduates, which creates a perfect environment for tech companies.
Codebridge is a bright example of such a vibrant tech community. One of our competitive advantages is a large UI/UX design team with expertise in building software products from scratch. We follow proven guidelines and best practices to create products that not only fulfill business purposes but also improve user experience.
Common values and culture
Ukraine is located in the very heart of Europe, so we share the Western mindset and common values. IT outsourcing teams in Ukraine demonstrate excellent English skills and are great communicators, so remote cooperation isn't an issue. As icing on the cake, most local outsourcing companies are founded by savvy entrepreneurs who treat other clients' businesses as their own.
Let's take Codebridge, for example. Our company has its roots in the Big Four since most team members have long-term experience working at KPMG. This expertise allows us to quickly understand clients' business demands and find the ins and outs of complicated tasks, like winning the war for talents. To stay ahead of the competition, we've developed a proprietary automated personnel selection program that allows us to process up to 1000 candidates per month and bring extraordinary talents on board.
Optimal value to cost ratio
The legislative system of many Western countries won't allow companies to stay flexible in their hiring. However, hiring local freelancers might not bring desirable results either due to high hourly rates, lack of expertise, and little knowledge of your domain.
With IT sourcing, the world is your oyster. You can pick among narrow-specialized developers, affordable hourly rates, and specialists with comprehensive in your domain. Ukrainian IT outsourcing companies fit into this paradigm perfectly since they provide excellent services for reasonable prices.
Convenient time difference
There's an insignificant time difference between Ukraine and European countries. Only one or two hours, and you're good to go. If you're from the US, you can match your working hours with Ukrainian ones as well. For example, Ukraine is 9 hours ahead of the central US. Surely, this is a considerable time difference, but compared to Asian countries, you can still fit your cooperation into the schedule.
Availability of workers
The last but not least, Ukrainian IT outsourcers are simply available for hire. While American and European employees work between 32 to 38 hours per week according to the local labor laws, Ukrainian developers have a 40-hour working week. In Ukraine, there are fewer public holidays compared to most European countries, so you can rest assured your team will finish the project in time with mindful diligence.
We hope we debunked some myths about working with Ukrainian IT outsourcers. If you feel like launching a project with a reliable software development team from Ukraine, drop us a line and we'll get back to you promptly.
