Our it recruiting agency has estimated that about 190,000 Middle + level developers work in Ukraine today. Thanks to the proud 21st place in the Eurasian rating of data transfer rates via the Internet, the selection of Ukrainian IT specialists is becoming a popular task for recruiters from all over the world. Therefore, the 4000 it-companies registered with us practically do not leave the state of searching for it-frames.
Another important point for the rating is knowledge of the English language. According to surveys, 70% of Ukrainian developers own foreign at the average and higher levels. However, an it-recruiting agency, before submitting candidates for consideration, still checks their real level of knowledge and it approximately corresponds to statistics.
PricewaterhouseCoopers published a report where the growth of the IT segment in Ukraine was recorded at 15-20 percent annually. In addition, many companies such as Microsoft, Samsung Electronics, Apple, Wargaming, Boeing, Skype, eBay, Siemens, IBM have already opened their R&D centers. European IT Outsourcing Intelligence Report recorded Ukrainian specialists in 4th place out of 10 in terms of professionalism. On the other hand, HackerRank gave Ukrainians 11th place in the Best software developers rating for their quick and accurate solutions.
As for payment, on freelance / outsourcing prices for work start for Senior + from $ 25 / hour. This is one of the lowest numbers for a fairly high quality of tasks in the global IT field. Therefore, our specialists understand their relevance, can choose between job offers. If the developer is really a master of his craft, then the line of recruiters is waiting for the end of his project. A good option to “get around” the waiting list is to contact a recruiting agency that has established itself in the market. It better understands the true motives of the applicants and, in the case of a categorical refusal, will be able to offer a worthy replacement.

However, you always need to hire those recruiters who are comfortable working with. If you are looking, we at Recruit Alliance will be happy to discuss all possible terms of cooperation.
