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

Often hiring managers face the “in-house vs outsource” difficulty. The biggest mistake CTOs, CEOs, and startup founders make when choosing (and comparing) specialists is: they forget the embedded costs. In fact, 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.

1 dev/y$118,500$38,400£60,000£28,800

10 devs/y$1,185,000$384,000£600,000£288,000
US = United States, UK = United Kingdom
In this scheme, outsourcing to Ukraine is the most cost-effective option.
