Why Moldova is something to be considered for high-quality software development by international companies?
Located in Eastern Europe between Ukraine and Romania, Moldova has recently become an attractive destination for businesses to outsource software & web development, or team augmentation.
Food for thought - 85% of the country's exports are led by high-quality software development services. This is thanks to local IT companies that employ talented tech engineers and create software for businesses throughout the world.
So you guessed well, the talent is Moldova's secret source when it comes to software development :
Skilled & qualified talent
The country has strong technical and educational potential, with a solid IT sector that provides invaluable experience to ambitious graduates. Moldovan ICT business environment benefits from the presence of international powerhouses, like Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Microsoft, IBM and Oracle.
Not only are they offering training & certification programs for IT specialists, but also contributing to an IT ecosystem that increasingly exports development, quality control, application customization and support to Europe, North America, the Middle East and countries like Australia or New Zealand.
According to the IDC CEMA research, there are approximately 22.000 IT specialists, out of which over 80% are technical specialists, including software engineers, analysts, developers, and project managers.
IDC's examination of available skills suggests that Moldova is particularly well-positioned for high-value activities, such as analysis, UX/ UI design, software development, enterprise applications, data visualization & processing tools, industry or niche-targeted mobile applications or solutions, testing, and activities like web development and basic coding.
On the other side, it's not well suited for low-level and high-volume operations like in India and China, which tells about the next one: quality of development.
Software development quality and competitive pricing
According to research conducted by GoalEurope, software development & IT outsourcing in Moldova is an attractive destination, especially for companies that are situated in geographies with high operational & payroll costs.
Even compared to Ukraine or Belarus (also highly demanding outsourcing destinations), Moldova has a better position if talking from the cost-benefit standpoint, which shows the country’s emerging strength as an IT nearshoring and offshoring destination.
Outsourcing your software or web development projects to Moldova creates valuable opportunities for collaboration:
- it gives you access to cutting-edge technologies;
- reach to the highly qualified workforce at reasonable and competitive prices;
- you manage the project costs more efficiently;
- optimize your business strategy and adopt innovation;
- finally, keeping you ahead of the market.
Cultural affinity, linguistic proficiency, and accessible destination
Apart from the technical competence of its workforce, Moldova provides a European mindset and cultural affinity, legislation that is EU-compliant, and strong linguistic proficiency.
It is common for Moldovan professionals to speak at least three languages.
English, German, Russian, French, Italian, and Spanish are among the most commonly spoken languages.
The country is also geographically well-positioned, situated within 3 hour's distance from all main European hubs with direct flights to and from Vienna ✈️, Munich ✈️, Frankfurt ✈️, Rome ✈️, Milano ✈️, Paris ✈️, London ✈️, Moscow✈️ and other destinations which make traveling cheap and accessible.
