But what does offshoring mean? In short, offshoring is a type of outsourcing that involves delegating some or all of the work on a selected project to a company from another geographically distant country to reduce costs and speed up the work.

Why should you consider hiring Polish Software Developers?

Filling the staffing gap

Well-educated and skilled employees

Well, have you ever seen an international ranking of the best software developers in the world? If not, just look at the results of the Programming Olympics conducted by HackerRank. According to this data, Polish software developers are the 3rd most skilled in the world.

In addition, compared to other countries, Polish software developers are well-educated. Today as many as 39% of Polish citizens aged between 25 and 34 have university degrees. This country has many well-respected universities, such as Warsaw University of Technology, Jagiellonian University, or the University of Gdańsk.

Cost savings

According to data from the three trusted and international sources — Glassdoor, PayScale and SalaryExpert, the national average salary for a Polish Software Developer is around $30,000 per year. By comparison, the earnings of U.S. programmers are about $92,000 per year.

As you can see, the differences here are big, but the savings aren’t over yet. It’s also worth considering the cost of non-salary benefits, office maintenance, and other costs you’d incur if you hired employees permanently from the United States.
