Is Poland a good country for nearshore software development?

Location and time zones for nearshore software development center

When choosing a nearshore software development center, the geographical location and time zones play a vital role. It is essential for both in-house and remote teams to have overlapping working hours to facilitate effective communication through calls and online meetings. Poland, being a member of the European Union, is an excellent choice for a nearshore software development center for countries in Western Europe. It shares the same time zone as most European countries, except for the United Kingdom, where there is a one-hour difference.


Attractive rates for nearshore software developers

Polish software developers offer affordability, making them among the most cost-effective options in Europe. Their rates can be up to 60% lower than those in other Western European countries. The typical hourly rate for a Polish nearshore developer is significantly lower than rates in the UK and the US.

A well-educated and highly skilled workforce

Poland boasts a well-educated and highly skilled workforce. Over 60% of Polish software developers hold university degrees in computer science or mathematics. The country also excels in educational metrics, with a high pupil-teacher ratio (1:10).

Polish students achieve impressive scores in international assessments. In the latest PISA study, Poland ranked 5th in mathematics, 6th in science, and 6th in reading. This demonstrates the significant human potential available for nearshore software development services.

Fluent English communication with Polish software engineers

Efficient communication with software engineers is vital in establishing a successful offshore software development center.

Poland ranks 13th among European countries in terms of English language proficiency, according to the EF English Proficiency Index, which is the world's largest ranking of countries and regions based on English skills. Additionally, Poland falls within the group of countries characterized as having a "very high proficiency" in English.  

Polish software developers are fluent in English, enabling easy and effective communication. This eliminates the need for translation or interpretation services, allowing companies to communicate directly with Polish developers.

High rankings and strong work ethic

Poland's software development outsourcing capabilities have earned recognition globally. The Hackers Global Rank places Poland 3rd in the world for software development outsourcing. According to a survey commissioned by Maersk & Reuters, Poland emerged as the 1st choice among European companies for relocating their supply chains or company operations in 2022, given the decision to relocate to a country other than the country of origin.

Polish workers are renowned for their strong work ethic, honed through years of experience abroad and in various BPOs. They exhibit high motivation and a willingness to go the extra mile to accomplish tasks. Close relations with Western countries have facilitated improvements in standards and frameworks, further enhancing work effectiveness.

Favorable location and vibrant business climate

Poland's strategic location in Central Europe makes it easily accessible to companies worldwide. Moreover, Poland shares favorable time zones with Western Europe, enabling seamless communication between companies and their developers.

The country offers a vibrant business climate with low taxes and a stable economy, positioning it as one of the most promising economies in Europe. It ranks 40th out of 190 economies in the global "Doing Business Rank" assessment.

Poland boasts excellent infrastructure, including high-speed internet and reliable transport links. According to the Speedtest Global Index, Poland has an average internet speed of 107.85, ranking it the 32nd out of the 181 researched countries. With such a favorable internet environment, Poland is well-equipped to facilitate smooth and productive online collaborations.

EU membership and developed business support services

Poland's membership in the European Union since 2004 provides investors and companies with access to a single market of 447 million people. This offers a significant advantage over many offshore software development locations.

Additionally, Poland has a well-developed business support and outsourcing services sector. This sector offers a wide range of services such as legal, accounting, HR, and marketing, which companies can leverage to establish and run their nearshore software development offices or offshore development centers.
