IT projects in Poland
Many foreign companies are outsourcing or have outsourced their IT to Poland, either all or partly. It can also be short term IT projects.
The reason for this is not “only” lower wages than in the home country but also the fact that the vast majority of IT developers in Central and Eastern Europe resides in Poland. In addition the majority are well educated in their field and can speak in English. In addition, they have a really good work ethic.
Furthermore Poland is well located in Europe and thus it is quick to get to and from. For example, it only takes a little over 1 hour to fly from Copenhagen to Warsaw.
Fierce competition for IT developers in Poland
Those facts is the reason why there has been and is a fierce competition for IT developers in Poland. Many companies hire big and expensive recruitment companies to headhunt the right employees.
But it does not have to be that expensive and cumbersome. The best way to find the right developers is via people who work within the IT industry themselves. Which I do as a IT consultant and have worked with/in companies such as IBM, KMD, Statoil (now Circle K) and SDC all in Warsaw.
But it does not necessarily have to be in the Polish capital. There are developers in the largest Polish cities, otherwise IBM fx did not have departments in Katowice, Wrocław besides Warsaw.
