Every second our world is evolving, the progress of humankind makes more and more technologies that ease our lives and make them comfortable and connected. If 100 years ago you could not work in the USA and live in the Czech Republic, but now it is our routine, you can not surprise someone with such a fact. That is why hiring developers and other specialists from neighbors or countries thousands of miles away, it does not matter, became so popular and effective. Now it is easier, faster, and in most cases, cost-effective than looking for an in-house team, as the world-famous marketplaces are perishing with offers from specialists of different experience and expertise around the globe. According to Statista, in 2020, for US tech startups, Eastern Europe is in second place in preference to outsourcing for freelance developers of all different levels.

benefits of outsourcing to Ukraine

Why is outsourcing so many people’s preferences?

More and more product companies use outsourcing to achieve desired results, as this approach has the following benefits.

  • Lower project cost. In most cases it is a top reason for choosing to outsource. If the company is based in the UK or the US with its salary rate and compared with salaries in Ukraine, the figures would be much lower, but not the quality. 
  • Get additional resources. When you have experts in your team that need them on different projects, and there is a need to replace them in their position, outsourcing helps a lot. As you have access to talents from other countries, the number of desired specialists drastically increases, and the searching process becomes faster.
  • You can find what you need. When you are searching for a candidate from a specific city, you have limits in the population. Frankly, from a 50.000 population city, you may find 10-15 candidates that fit your demands, whereas you can find hundreds of the same quality or better specialists around the globe. That makes outsourcing appealing to most companies.
