Software Development Rates in Ukraine, 2012

Information on the average rates – development companies in the Ukrainian market charge for specific expertise help provide an impartial assessment of the volume of projects and the overall expense of outsourced IT projects.

The figure below shows the rates for the following specialists: Project Manager, Senior Developer, Middle Developer and Junior Developer, QA Tester, Application Architect, Business System Analyst.
Rates are calculated based on the amount the end customer pays for the services of an IT specialist per hour, inclusive of salary, taxes, facilities, etc.
To calculate the maximum average rates, the average value of 15% of a maximum rate for a Project Manager was used. To calculate minimum average rates by country, the average value of 15 % of minimum rates for a Junior Developer was used.
To calculate the average market rates, sources used included data on average rates by position.
The average rates were calculated using the following formula: 10% of average rates for a Project Manager in the country; + 20 % of the average rates for a Senior Developer in the country; + 50 % of average rates for a Middle Developer in the country; + 20% of average rates for a Junior Developer in the country.

These guys are rock stars!!

Our project required building a dashboard system with very demanding user-interface requirements. The system needed to provide very fast performance at the same time as it displays hundreds of thumbnails and supports powerful search, preview, and grouping features. Furthermore, the system required the implementation of an extensive set of database triggers. DevelopEx once again exceeded expectations and delivered an incredibly well-designed and well-built solution that is truly impressive.
