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

Usually hiring managers face the “in-house vs outsource” dilemma. The biggest mistake CTOs, CEOs, and startup founders make when choosing (and comparing) coders is: they shut eyes to the embedded costs. In reality, there are numerous and substantial costs involved in hiring and maintaining employees. An in-house developer (or any worker) 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 company 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$177,000$38,400£78,000£28,800

10 devs/y$1,770,000$384,000£780,000£288,000
US = United States, UK = United Kingdom
In this case, outsourcing to Ukraine is the most cost-effective option.
