Is It Affordable and Reasonable to Hire Developers in Estonia?
What to Expect from an Estonia Developer for Hire
At the moment, the Estonian economy continues its development. IT industry is also not an exception. Its main trend is the development of software products for the state, the banking sector, and electronic commerce within the country. For example, Estonia was the first country who held parliamentary elections in electronic form, according to E-Estonia.com, and recently it introduced a system for the electronic receipt of residence permits. The technologies that are intended for this purpose are in the greatest demand in this country. In general, Estonian IT sector is represented by domestic companies, whose products are also oriented to the local market.
How Much Does It Cost To Hire Developers in Estonia?
We will answer the main question right now and then compare the salary indicators of an Estonia developer for hire with a Ukrainian one. An average developer salary in Estonia is $2,500 according to the PayScale. A software developer in Ukraine can earn near $2000 per month in accordance with the PayScale.
We have conducted the research comparing wages of Estonian vs Ukrainian developers and found out that the salaries of Ukrainian developers and Estonian ones are a bit lower, still Ukrainian companies, that offer IT offshoring services, offer all-inclusive rates that include all other expenses and some additional benefits if you decide to work with their company.
Check the comparison of the salaries below:
- Net salary of an Estonia developer for hire is $2,000/month, while a Ukrainian dedicated programmer earns $2,400/month.
- Remote PHP developers earn $1,500/month in Estonia and $2,200/month in Ukraine.
It has to be noted that the rates vary and depend on many factors: the city, the level of a programmer, skills they possess. For example, Tallinn web developer with skills in .NET technology earns approximately $1,500/month.
In any case, there are good reasons to consider hiring developers from Ukraine and from Ukrainian companies as the trend is that it will be very hard to recruit web developers in 2017. Main reason is that most UA companies offer to hire the already formed in-house team of developers of any level. Moreover, Ukraine has over 90,000 IT professionals and Ukrainian companies have direct access to this largest dev community in Europe.
