About the Country
Ukraine is well known as a well-established outsourcing hub with a huge availability of talented IT specialists at low cost. But today outsourcing to Ukraine has got one more meaning – as a hub of graphic design professionals. The country is now well-known for its outstanding IT and Graphic Design Services.
Being the largest country in Europe, Ukraine enjoys a distinct competitive edge in near shoring due to its culture and geographic proximity to west Europe.
Being an active global outsourcing destination since 1990's, Ukraine is proud of being a technological partner for US and European businesses.
Huge pool of highly skilled specialist in software development, data processing and 2D/3D graphics make Ukraine an attractive place for doing business with lower expenses. The number of IT specialists of Ukraine is ranking fourth behind the U.S., India and Russia.
Today there are more than 4000 outsourcing IT and Graphic design companies operating successfully in major Ukrainian cities: Kyiv, Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk and Odessa and serving clients from USA, France, Germany, Benelux and UK.
There is a popular belief that a classical Ukrainian education has little to do with modern worlds standards. However, the country would never get to global outsourcing top without top-notch professionals.
Another advantage of Ukraine as an outsourcing destination is the possibility to get high-quality services at low cost.
The country is highly competitive in terms of costs, as the average salary of mid-level software developer ranges from 1300 to 2000$ per month and is 10 to 30 percent lower than in Belarus and Russia. By comparison, the average monthly salary of a mid-level software developer in Western Europe is 5000$.
As to graphic design specialists – the average monthly salary in Ukraine is 1000-1500$; the salary of the EU graphic designer ranges from 2000 to 5000$.
In addition, Ukraine makes a stiff completion to such outsourcing countries as India and Brazil in both IT and graphic design services.
As we all know the Ukrainian outsourcing sector is growing rapidly and is worth over €1bn. Ukraine has established a reputation of a rising outsourcing hotspot.
And today, despite the current crisis, Ukrainian IT and Graphic design industries remain in a good position. The concerns some customers show over instability in the country have failed to impact the outsourcing businesses. 3D-Ace Company is located in the eastern part of Ukraine and we must admit everything is stable in our region so far, and there have not been any major issues here.
