IT outsourcing is becoming an increasingly important industry in Ukraine, and a software outsourcing company can now be found in nearly any city. Nevertheless, some cities have become more prominent in the industry.
Over the last few years, Kharkiv has grown into the second largest offshore development center after Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. Once the capital of Soviet Ukraine, Kharkiv today is one of the biggest regional centers and among the most influential cities in the Eastern Ukraine. It offers a large IT talent pool, which is one of the factors that have made the city so attractive for outsourcing.
