Which country is best for IT companies recruiting developers in Eastern Europe?

Poland solidifies its position as a top Eastern European destination among foreign IT companies, ranking 7th in Europe for software services with an industry revenue surpassing $8 billion. With a talent pool of over 600,000 software developers, Poland boasts expertise highlighted in the top 25 Coursera Global Skills Report 2023 and top 15 in the EF English Proficiency Index. JavaScript, Java, SQL, Python, PHP, and Typescript can always be found in the tech stack of Polish developers. There are myriad IT hubs to hire those programmers from like Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw, Poznan, Lodz, and Tri-city. Backed by solid infrastructure and a favorable A2 business climate, Poland ranks 13th in the 2023 Kearney Global Services Location Index, further enhancing its appeal for businesses.


With the IT sector poised to reach $1,127 million in 2024, Romania shines as another viable option for hiring software developers. Boasting a talent pool of approximately 200,000 IT specialists skilled in Java, JavaScript, C#, Python, React, Angular, HTML, and CSS, Romania offers a rich array of tech expertise. In addition to exceptional tech skills, these developers have an impressive command of the English language, ranking 15th in the EF English Proficiency Index. Most of the Romanian coders live in such IT centers as Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, and Iasi. A pleasant A3 business environment in combination with various incentives, including a decade-long 0% income tax for R&D companies and additional deductions for R&D eligible expenses, make Romania a go-to offshoring location among foreign IT companies.


Ranking 21st in Europe for software services, Bulgaria stands out as a competitive market for hiring IT specialists. Currently, its talent pool amounts to about 110,000 software developers. They are in the top 20 in Europe for IT expertise, excelling at C#, JavaScript, Java, Python, PHP, and SQL.

Notably, Bulgaria holds the 25th position in the 2023 Kearney Global Services Location Index, offering the EU’s lowest developer rates and corporate and personal income taxes, solidifying its appeal for foreign tech businesses.


With the second-largest pool of software developers in Eastern Europe, Ukraine emerges as a compelling choice for IT team expansion. Taking 15th place in the Coursera Global Skills Report 2023, Ukrainian developers are some of the best in tech skills, being equipped with such modern technologies as JavaScript, Java, C#, Python, and PHP. Thanks to the hard work of these tech pros, Ukraine was able to generate over $7 billion in experts in 2022, with the tech industry contributing almost 5% to the national GDP. Key IT hubs such as Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa, Dnipro, and Kharkiv drive the country’s IT development forward, showcasing Ukraine’s prowess in the tech sector and attracting more IT companies to hire local developers.
