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

Sometimes hiring managers face the “in-house vs outsource” dilemma. The biggest mistake CTOs, CEOs, and startup founders make when hiring (and comparing) programmers 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 vendor 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.

10 devs/y$885,000$384,000£450,000£288,000
US = United States, UK = United Kingdom
In this scheme, outsourcing to Ukraine is the most cost-effective option.
