Ukraine's largest online community of software developers, DOU has recently published the results of their 2014 Ukrainian IT Salaries Research and we traditionally provide the English coverage of this Report for those looking to leverage offshore or nearshore Tech Talent pools.
DOU has polled over 6,000 IT specialists in the period between 22 December 2014 and 18 January 2015. All salaries are median, monthly, net (after taxes) and in USD. Of those 6,000 plus participants polled, a good half represent outsourcing service providers, almost 30% - product companies, 10% - outstaffing providers, 4% - startups and the rest come from non-technology companies.
