Outsourcing to Poland is nothing new. Our country is a growing market for foreign investment and its steady expansion during the last few years suggests a bright future.

Poland ranks as 12th most attractive offshoring country in the world, according to A.T. Kearney.

But let’s leave these economic statistics aside and discover what makes Polish developers so hot on the global market.

Why international organizations should consider outsourcing to Poland

Poland’s tech scene may not be as mature as in other European countries, but we have a lot to be proud about.

Knowledge

Poland’s tech scene may not be as mature as in other European countries, but we have a lot to be proud about.

First, we’re growing quickly. According to Dealroom.co, Central and Eastern European tech startups raised €177 million in funding last year. Four years before, it was just €15 million. And Poland is among the countries that attract the biggest funding rounds.

Polish developers are known for their proficiency in general technical knowledge. Did you know that Polish IT professionals get the highest ranks in international programming contests like Microsoft Imagine Cup, Google Code Jam, TopCoder, or the Central European Programming Contest (CEPC) every year?

Poland’s leadership in the IT sector is clear – we currently occupy the 4th position in TopCoder’s global ranking.

And we keep aiming high. Polish development shops cooperate not only with the best tech startups but also with tech giants around the world.

Communication

Tech expertise needs to be paired up with soft skills. Fluent English is a standard among Polish graduates and employees, placing them high in the English-driven tech world.

At Sunscrapers, we look for developers who have technical knowledge, but also a high level of interpersonal skills and business understanding. We inspire them to take the initiative and improve their soft skills.

As a result, our team can communicate successfully, understand the needs of our clients, and deliver amazing results while working remotely.

Cultural proximity

Poland is a great outsourcing partner because of the similarity in cultural and social norms. Naturally, there exists a small gap between the Polish and Western mindset, but then again every nation should be proud of its traits, right?

That being said, we are way more similar to Western professionals and business partners than developers from continents like Asia or Africa. Plus, there are also strong institutional ties between global partners that help Polish development shops in cooperation with foreign clients.

Economic issues

Poland remained stable after 2008 crisis and today enjoys a steady growth rate. During the last decade, the country’s GDP per capita has almost doubled. Poland is also a member of EU, NATO, WTO, OECD, and ESA and has a transparent legal system.

We’re experienced in providing IT services to international clients. In 2016, the IT services market in Poland reached $7.9 billion. Around 140,000 IT professionals work in over 450 outsourcing centers today.

Poland ranked first in the AHK survey of top investment locations in the CEE region and today is considered as one of the most attractive spots for nearshore outsourcing in Europe.

The high quality of Polish IT services combined with excellent communication skills and economic factors are the driving forces that make Poland one of the top IT outsourcing destinations in the world.
