How to Gain from Ukraine: Utilizing Ukrainian Tech Talent

How to Gain from Ukraine: Utilizing Ukrainian Tech Talent to build your dream project

Do you have difficulties finding the tech talent to fill out your coding team? Or perhaps you’re struggling to assemble a development squad to handle a project while you focus on other aspects of your business? Or maybe you’ve been burned by previous outsourcing experiences and are looking for a balance between affordability and quality – then perhaps Ukraine holds the answer to your problems!

Join us for a quick overview of the emerging tech boom happening in Eastern Europe and how your small business or startup can benefit from the vast technical expertise located just across the Atlantic.


Outsourcing gets a bad rap when it comes to quality – for most, it’s a way of sacrificing quality in order to save a few bucks. However, this can be a very short-sighted way of looking at foreign software development companies, as they can harness a great deal of talent which may otherwise be unavailable to businesses which are not located in the more well-known IT hubs. This presentation highlights one country – Ukraine – as a source for highly-talented, English-speaking developers who can augment your existing team or even handle a completely independent project which you wish to build from the ground up.

Many folks assume that Ukraine would be a poor choice to search for talent due to the stigma of it being a post-Soviet, third world country that is rife with conflict and war. However, this presentation dispels such myths and explains in clear detail how you can benefit from the massive influx of well-trained developers who are eager to grow your next great idea to fruition!

The speaker for the event will be Edward Robe’, a Seattle native who, through a series of very extraordinary circumstances, ended up settling down in Lviv, Ukraine – commonly referred to as “The Little Paris of Eastern Europe.” Over the last five years, he has worked with several different IT companies around Ukraine as a trainer and consultant, and now currently works as an engagement manager at Binary Studio, a boutique software development agency which specializes in custom software solutions for small businesses and startups.

For those of you interested in Ukraine, recruitment, outsourcing/outstaffing or life in Eastern Europe – please feel free to join the event and participate in our Q&A session after the presentation. We’ll be happy to have you!
