Guide to Hiring Development Team in Poland

IT outsourcing in Poland

Poland, just like other countries, has been developing in the IT sector very fast throughout the last decades. The latest statistics show that the Polish IT market is going to grow by 4.8% from 2021 to 2026. With such fast development, you can expect to find good specialists there that have already gained the necessary experience on the market.

Why hire an IT recruitment agency in Poland?

It’s not a secret that outsourcing in business can come with valuable benefits, not only in IT sectors. More and more companies decide to hire recruitment agencies because they save a lot of time and, in turn, money.

  • Market know-how. A local agency knows the reality better than any specialist from abroad, even if they did extended research. You can rely on their experience and resourcefulness. For example, they can know which channels to choose when searching best-suited candidates. They can also advise you on the appropriate pay rate.
  • No language barrier. As simple as it sounds, you cannot underestimate this if you consider IT outsourcing abroad. A recruitment agency in Poland can reach out to the candidates in their mother tongue, therefore making the process more transparent for both sides. There is a high possibility that the potential match can be estimated yet in the first phase.
  • Saving up the time and budget. Just as it was already explained, hiring an agency can help to shorten the recruitment process. Instead of searching aimlessly, an agency can get to the best candidates right away. It’s a great way of saving your recruiters’ and managers’ time, as they will get in touch only with candidates that passed the first phase.

What to ask at the interview?
