Development Center in Warsaw, Poland

If you’re a small or medium sized enterprise looking to outsource a development team for the first time, then a destination like Poland is almost certainly the best bet.

Poland has the most mature IT outsourcing market and is undisputedly the leading outsourcing destination in Europe. Cultural similarities, the high level of education, tax incentives, the stable economic situation, and highly skilled workers are its main advantages.

Why Poland is one of the best places to outsource developers?

  • Good Universities

    39% of people aged between 25 and 34 have university degrees or the equivalent in Poland. Perhaps surprisingly, this puts them right at the top of the list in second place behind Norway in that category, with the US ranking at number 11 with 35%.

  • Small Culture Gap (as compared to India)

    One of the greatest advantages in sourcing a development team in Poland is that there is practically no cultural gap.

  • Software developers with good English skills

    A lot of the universities actually run their courses in English, so as to better prepare students for the likelihood that they will be working for English speaking firms in the business services sector.

  • Competitive Pricing

    Poland has been Europe’s outsourcing leader for a while now, since relatively low labor costs have combined nicely with the excellent skills sets that the country can offer.

  • Small time-zone difference (Even for the US)

    Outsourcing to Poland from the UK means that there is practically no time difference – just one hour. This of course means that the working hours of both domestic and nearshore teams can be organised to be identical, which helps with processes and communication greatly. Even for companies based in the US, there’s an overlap in the working day of a few hours when outsourcing to Poland. This is something that’s simply not possible when hiring a development team from places like India and Asia.
