While for some, cooperation with Ukrainian companies seemed like a risky arrangement, after more than 9 months of fighting, Ukrainians have shown themselves to be a united and strong nation that not only successfully defends itself from the aggressor that is 28 times bigger but also continues to work and stabilize the economy.
As a Ukrainian software development company, we get many inquiries from our potential Customers about software development in Ukraine in the light of the war and its prospects in the near future. Let’s dive in.
How IT Market in Ukraine is Coping During the War?
Despite all the anxiety during the first weeks of the war, the work in our teams hasn’t stopped for a single day since February 24. You may ask: how is it possible in the terms of war?
# We Work to Support the Image of Ukraine as a Major Player in Software Arena
We have a lot of customers from different countries, some of them have been working with us for years and some have just started cooperating with inVerita before the military invasion. They have chosen us because they knew that Ukraine is a great software destination with talented people and we’re a reliable software vendor. We must fulfill our obligations and make sure that our customers are satisfied with our services and don’t feel any inconvenience or experience delays.
# We Work to Support the Ukrainian Economy
The war kills the economy. A lot of Ukrainians have lost their jobs and homes. IT sector is one of the businesses that didn’t shut down and continues paying taxes and saving workplaces for Ukrainians. Most Ukrainian IT companies monthly donate a share of their income to the army and donate to volunteering organizations. With the beginning of a full-scale invasion, inVerita has opened a fund to cover the most urgent needs of the Armed Forces that currently has generated more than UAH 9 million from the company’s income, and volunteer donations of our employees and our partners. Two of our employees are defending Ukraine from the front and we can’t be more proud of them.
# We Work Because its Our Duty
We signed contracts with our customers promising high-quality services and we keep our word. Our work is not locally-bound so we successfully deliver from 3 offices in Ukraine and one in Poland. We bought a Starlink to provide our employees with Internet access in case of electricity cuts, some of our employees are now based in the US, UK, Poland, Germany, Sweden, and other countries. inVerita hires new employees and signs new contracts. What’s more, we also get new projects and we’re extremely grateful for such trust and support.
Ukraine is an IT Outsourcing Powerhouse
Ukraine has the biggest talent pool in Europe. Before the war, journalists from publications with household names wrote about Kyiv, Lviv, and Kharkiv as the future Silicon Valley.
