Why outsource to Romania?

Great question! Greater answer – Smart Saving Resources!

The world is your oyster when it comes to finding the right tech partner for your digital product. The choices are endless. But a few countries do stand out if you do even a quick Google search. And those countries are at the top of the list for a few good reasons.

Time zone fit

Culture fit

Budget fit

From the title of this article, you might have already guessed one of the most sought after countries is Romania. As a CEE country, Romania is around 2 hours ahead of most Western Europe. In addition, it is well connected by air to all big European cities.

Romania is also a great culture fit, as communication is anon-issue. You’ll find English spoken everywhere. And you’ll also find plenty of German, French or Spanish speakers. Plus, we have been working with western companies for almost two decades, so the differences in business culture are getting smaller and smaller.    

But maybe most importantly, Romanian costs for software development can be a great budget fit. Why? Two reasons:

Affordable costs

Yes, the cost for software developers and engineers has gone up. But it still remains comfortably below what you’ll typically find in Western Europe or North America. The IT sector is also enjoying tax cuts, as the government is trying to support its growth. This makes local markets such as Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara, Iasi or Bucharest attractive. As they are also large university centers, constantly pulling in highly skilled people.  

Quantity and QUALITY!

Yes, prices for development teams are more affordable. But quality is not sacrificed.

·        The IT market is one of the most dynamic sectors of the Romanian economy, seeing double digit growth year-over-year. The biggest sector in terms of revenue is system and network integration, which accounts for 28,3% of the total market revenues.

·        Cluj. If you’re in the branch, you most likely heard about Cluj. It is called the Romanian Silicon Valley because it has the second largest IT sector after Bucharest.

·        Global software companies such as Oracle, Amazon or IBM have already saw the potential out of Romania; And we have our first unicorn, UiPath!

·        Romania has approximately 100,000 IT specialists, with almost 5,000 new IT and communications engineers graduating every year.

 

We gathered in this article what we think are the main reasons why choosing a Romanian software development partner might be a hit foryour business. With a growing IT sector, a new unicorn and subsequently a developing startup ecosystem, Romania is a vibrant country to do business. Especially tech business. We are quality oriented and getting more and more business savvy at developing products users love!
