Impact of the war in Ukraine on the Eastern European IT labor market

Jul 8, 2022 by Alexey Zagorodniy

  

Ukraine is one of the largest and fastest-growing IT labor markets in Eastern Europe. Its 300,000-strong ICT resource pool is a significant contributor to the country’s economic performance — the value of Ukraine’s export of IT services in 2021 rose by a massive 36% to around $6.8 billion (4% of GDP).

Currently, the IT market has stabilized and adjusted to operating in war conditions — IT is one of the few sectors still functioning in Ukraine. The quality, adaptability and determination of the country’s workforce is a major reason why Ukraine remains one of Luxoft’s key, bespoke, software development and support locations.
