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

Sometimes hiring managers face the “in-house vs outsource”. The biggest mistake CTOs, CEOs, and startup founders make when hiring (and comparing) developers 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 agency 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$9,375$3,200£4,375£2,400
1 dev/y$112,500$38,400£52,500£28,800
10 devs/m$93,750$32,000£43,750£24,000
10 devs/y$1,125,000$384,000£525,000£288,000
US = United States, UK = United Kingdom
In this case, outsourcing to Ukraine is the most cost-effective option.
