Is Poland a good country for nearshore software development?

Location and time zones for nearshore software development center

When choosing a nearshore partner, the geographical location and time zones play a vital role. Both in-house and remote teams need 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 setting up a nearshore development center for countries in Western Europe. Thanks to geographical proximity, 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 are known for their affordability and top-tier skills, making them one of the most cost-effective options in Europe. Their rates can be up to 60% lower than those in other Western European countries, with the typical hourly rate for a Polish programmer being significantly lower than rates in the UK and the US.

A well-educated and highly skilled workforce

Poland boasts well-educated and highly skilled tech talent, with over 60% of Polish software product developers holding university degrees in computer science or mathematics. The country also excels in educational metrics, boasting a favorable pupil-teacher ratio of 1:10.

Polish students achieve impressive scores in international assessments. In the latest PISA study, Poland was 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 your development partners is vital for establishing a successful nearshore software development center.

Poland is ranked 13th among European countries in English language proficiency, according to the EF English Proficiency Index, the world’s largest ranking of countries and regions based on English skills. Moreover, Poland is classified within the group of countries with “very high proficiency” in English.

Polish software developers’ fluency in English enables effective communication, eliminating the need for translation or interpretation services. This allows companies to communicate directly with Polish developers, streamlining the development process.

High rankings and strong work ethic of Polish nearshoring partners

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 for outsourcing and a vibrant business climate

Poland’s strategic location in Central Europe makes it easily accessible to companies worldwide. Furthermore, its similar time zone to Western Europe enables seamless communication between companies and their developers.

The country boasts a vibrant business climate, characterized by low taxes and a stable economy, positioning it as one of the most promising economies in Europe. It is ranked 40th out of 190 economies in the global ‘Doing Business’ assessment.

Poland also offers excellent infrastructure, including high-speed internet and reliable transport links. According to the Speedtest Global Index, Poland’s average internet speed is 107.85 Mbps, ranking it 32nd out of 181 countries researched. With such a favorable internet environment, Poland is well-equipped to support smooth and productive nearshore development services.

EU membership and developed business support services

Since joining the European Union in 2004, Poland has provided investors and companies access to the single market of 447 million people, offering a significant advantage over many offshore software development locations.

Additionally, Poland boasts a well-developed business support and outsourcing services sector, offering a wide range of services including legal, accounting, HR, and marketing. Companies can leverage these services to efficiently establish and manage their nearshore software development offices or offshore development centers.
