Ukraine's largest online community of IT specialists, DOU has just released the results of their continuous IT salaries survey as of May and June 2015, and I'd like to share them with our English speaking audience.
This time, DOU has polled over 6,000 Ukrainian software developers, testers and project managers, of whom 46.6% reside and work in Kyiv, 16.2% - in Kharkiv, Ukraine's second largest city, almost 10% - in Lviv, and 5.5% - in Odessa. Of all specialists polled, almost 50% work in software development outsourcing companies, 28.5% - in product companies, slightly less than 5% - in outstaffing, and 4.5% work in startups.
