Today, 90,000 programmers work in Ukraine and a quarter of them are in the top 25 of the local IT-companies. A year ago in our country there were 75,000 developers, nowadays their number has increased to 90,000. Thus, the growth was approximately 20%. But at the same time, 5% of the developers leave Ukraine annually to work abroad.
Development is concentrated in five cities of Ukraine: Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv, Dnipropetrovsk, and Odessa. 86% of all programmers work in the aforementioned locations. Moreover, almost half of the total IT market is accumulated in capital.
