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

Usually hiring managers face the “in-house vs outsource” problem. The biggest mistake CTOs, CEOs, and startup founders make when hiring (and comparing) experts is: they ignore 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 provider copes with 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$7,375$3,200£3,500£2,400
1 dev/y$88,500$38,400£42,000£28,800
10 devs/m$73,750$32,000£35,000£24,000
10 devs/y$885,000$384,000£420,000£288,000
US = United States, UK = United Kingdom
In this scenario, outsourcing to Ukraine is the most cost-effective decision.
