7 years of hiring IT and Tech Talent

Hey! My name is Andrew, and I'm a professional IT recruiter. I've been hiring software engineers in Eastern Europe for more than 7 years, and I specialise in connecting IT companies with talented developers in our local tech market.
Andrew Shishkin
I've pivoted my skills to helping companies find tech talent remotely to help deal with the pressures of COVID-19, and throughout the Pandemic I've built a portfolio of 100+ new clients around the world, all of whom have understood the cost effectiveness of looking at a remote development team sourced from new, untapped talent markets.
CEO, co-founder Coders Valley
As a local recruiter with extensive connections in Ukraine, I understand what draws our local talent, and I know the mentality of developers here in Eastern Europe. Thousands of developers have passed through me in these 7 years and I keep in touch with the best of them, and, crucially, my network continues to grow as we step into a post-pandemic world. Book a call with me this week and find out how I can help source effective, cost effective remote tech talent for your company!

Why hiring from Eastern Europe is beneficial for IT Industry

Based on research from Glassdoor the average cost of self-hiring an IT developer in the UK/EU is £12,000, and it takes 27 days.
You will pay 1.5 - 2 times less for a full-time employee based in Eastern Europe,
Your developer will have a contemporary, market-proof and very high level of knowledge and technical skill; our talent market is incredibly hard working (sample CV),
All candidates are hired as contractors. Therefore, recruitment is flexible, you won't need a permit for work, and it will be easy for you to set realistic time-specific goals and part ways with your contractor with ease,
You don't need to pay NIC 13.8% and pension contribution for your contractor, because they have to pay them in their own country (3-7% in Eastern Europe) and all contracting work falls outside of IR35,
You will pay your contractor directly in Pounds Sterling or Euro via Wise (bank account, sort code), PayPal or Crypto.
Eastern Europe is a proven, excellent alternative to traditional outsourcing countries in the UK/EU, thanks to the high level of education for engineers, a large number of domestic IT, tech and startup companies, as well as first rate infrastructure (established quick internet, video communication, coworking and consulting cultural mirroring, etc.).
How is recruitment from Eastern Europe so cost effective? The salary level paid for services is bound to, and relates to, domestic need and cost of living. For example, renting a good apartment in the central part of an average Eastern European city will cost an average of £200 to £400 per calendar month. Because we understand domestic salary levels, expectations and market trends, your fee reflects the difference in cost.

In the current market we have struggled to find good candidates for our offshore locations. Since working with Coders Valley, they have not only supplied great candidates but have partnered with us in such a way that I view them as an extension of the internal recruitment team.

I look forward to building a strong relationship for the future.
Dan Taylor
Talent Manager at Juriba
We hired two Senior Engineers through Coders Valley and was impressed with the quality of the candidates and the speed in which they were found. All the candidates were shortlisted well so all had the right tech stack experience and could all communicate well enough to work effectively with a remote English speaking team.

Very happy with our two new team members and I would happily recommend Coders Valley.
Matt Rantell
CEO and Founder at The Square - Digitising Construction
Coders Valley are a professional and friendly team who were a fantastic support to us with sourcing a quality candidate to join our team as an Elixir Backend Developer.

As a small start up, it is very important to us to get the right people with the right skills and the right attitude. The successful candidate, who Coders Valley introduced to us, had the expertise and experience we were looking for and they have settled well into their role and into the team.
Krystian Zajac
Founder and Board Member at Hero Labs
We hired Andrew to find us a strong backend developer. After trying to recruit in the UK and overseas for months, we couldn't find someone to match our criteria. As a company, we look for people with the right attitude, values, culture fit and skills. Coders Valley took the time to understand our requirements and budget. As we went along with a few interviews, he took the time to further fine tune the process and got us exactly the sort of person we were looking for.

I was quite impressed with the quick turnaround and we will be using services again!
Karuna Govind
CTO and Co-Founder at Coupay Limited
I would like to thank you and your team for making the process of hiring a full stack developer very easy and stress free! After struggling with recruitment ourselves the team at Coders Valley provided us with quality candidates for the role. Our new staff member has settled into the role and is a valued member of our team.

You have been the easiest recruitment company to work with that we have used to date. It has been a pleasure to work with your team and I will be back in touch when we need to recruit again!
Deanne Glennie
Director at Blue Cookie Limited
It has been a pleasure working with Andrew, Karina, Bella and the wider Coders Valley Team. The team helped us fill a Senior Software Developer role, and sourced several promising candidates - with one eventually going on to take the role.

The Coders Valley team are professional, diligent and responsive, and I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking to make a hire from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus (or any other geographies they may expand to cover in the future).
Uriel Tannen
Co-founder at Furnish App
