Top Offshore Software Development Companies in Eastern Europe

HBD at Qubit Labs

It is a well-established truth by now that CEE and especially Eastern Europe is a region where IT services are taken seriously and the whole region thrives off of the tech talent that the rest of the world has recently discovered and put to use. Eastern Europe is a fast-growing IT destination with over a million developers offering their services in the entire spectrum of technologies.

There are multiple reasons why this region has become so popular in the world of IT outsourcing and why companies around the globe have put their trust into specifically European developers.

As a rule, the CEE region can boast robust educational systems with a lot of attention paid to exact sciences and information technology, so the quality of talent produced in this region has always been at the high end of the scale. This also is a massive talent pool with millions of developers and a growing labor market as the supply of new talent is constant.

Central and especially Eastern European countries also have a leg up on most other destinations in terms of cost of services. Since a number of these economies are not a part of the EU and the cost of living is significantly lower in these countries, so the cost of services consequently can be much more attractive than prices in the west, allowing customers to save their budget without losing the high quality of the products.

Central Europe is a convenient place to work with no matter how you look at it. It’s not stretched over many time zones, a business can always find a work time overlap wherever in the world it might be based, and travel is simplified in the region with visa-free regimes and good infrastructure. It is also culturally convenient to hire developers from CEE as there is a minimal chance for a culture shock, work ethic discrepancies or misunderstandings as most IT specialists from Eastern Europe are well-proficient in English.

Selection Criteria:

  • IT Outsourcing service vendor
  • Development center in Eastern Europe
  • High rating on Clutch
  • Vetted review from clients on Clutch

Let’s take a closer look at Ukraine,

one of the biggest and well-known IT outsourcing destination. There are plenty of reasons including many of those mentioned above, for it to be headlining the list of countries to outsource IT-related solutions from.


Great tech education

Historically, Ukraine has made a name for itself with its technical education as Russian and Ukrainian educational systems were a hallmark of tech schooling throughout the 20th century. Ukraine’s V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University, Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and National Technical University of Ukraine produce top-notch software engineers the whole world is after.


Fluent English

Another reason for companies to keep choosing Ukraine as their IT destination is the well-established communication and English proficiency of the Ukrainian developers. While communication is so important when working on a project over distance, and many companies can share plenty of unpleasant experiences with language barriers hindering proper workflow when hiring developers overseas, the majority of developers will pleasantly surprise you with English fluency.



Since the demand for Ukrainian developers has only been growing in the past few years, it’s logical that when hiring developers in Ukraine, you will end up working with people with an extensive experience of working with international projects and your business will most likely benefit from this cumulative knowledge of previous mistakes, fixes and wins.


Average rates

The Ukrainian economy is a work in progress, and the cost of living there is much lower compared to any western states. This gives Ukrainian developers a solid advantage because they can offer their services at lower prices without sacrificing any comfort of life for themselves and still deliver products of the comparably highest quality.


Strong work ethic

Ukrainian developers have earned their name worldwide with high efficiency, clear communication and high standards of work ethic. Portfolios of happy clients are probably the highest valued currency in the world of IT outsourcing and Ukrainian developers can boast quite the riches.


Comfortable time zones

As mentioned above, the whole region is a very convenient place to outsource because it more or less is in the middle of the world. Having developers in Ukraine working on your project, you will always find a work time overlap, wherever you are based. This way you can save yourself and the offshore team a lot of time and consequently, money.
