The True Cost of Hiring an In-house vs Remote API Developer in Ukraine

Generally hiring managers face the “in-house vs outsource” dilemma. The biggest mistake CTOs, CEOs, and startup founders make when selecting (and comparing) consultants is: they ignore the embedded costs. Actually, there are numerous and substantial costs involved in hiring and maintaining employees. An in-house developer (or any employee) is always more expensive than his salary when you factor in embedded costs which aren’t reflected in the employee’s salary:

  • employee benefits (+10%)
  • administration and infrastructure (+10%)
  • paid leaves (+10%)
  • training (+5%)
  • management (+5%)
  • recruitment (+10%)

The outsourcing firm faces the same embedded costs (though maybe in less amounts). The only difference is it had already factored these costs into its price quote. So, let’s take a fresh look at the adjusted (salary + 50%) numbers.

PeriodUS vs UkraineUK vs Ukraine
1 dev/m$12,375$3,200£5,375£2,400
1 dev/y$148,500$38,400£64,500£28,800
10 devs/m$123,750$32,000£53,750£24,000
10 devs/y$1,485,000$384,000£645,000£288,000
US = United States, UK = United Kingdom
In this scenario, outsourcing to Ukraine is the most cost-effective decision.
