Also, Ruby on Rails is written in Ruby - a multi-tier MVC framework for creating web applications based on a NoSQL database. Ruby on Rails is an open-source technology used to build websites. The idea of choosing Ruby engineers has become a well-known practice for companies and startups looking for an easier and quicker way to realize their ideas and technologies into a product.

Big amount of developers
In Eastern Europe, there are around 25,000 developers who work with Ruby. Consider on Graph 1. According to LinkedIn, 4500 of them are Ukrainians. But the number of developers is constantly changing. Ruby developers live in such big cities as Kyiv, Dnipro, Lviv, and Kharkiv. In these cities, IT software engineers are the most active in Ukraine. A lot of different meetups have been organized there. It lets junior developers improve their skills and upgrade their experience level.
Financial aspect
The number of Ruby engineers is falling now, and they are highly in demand today. But, unfortunately, because of this, engineers' services prices are rising, and in the USA and Western Europe, they're the highest. For example, as the data shows - an average salary of a RoR developer in the USA is around $127K. In the UK - it's around £55K which is equal to $76K. So, finding experienced RoR developers could be costly and time-consuming. So then, companies prefer outsourcing web development to Ukraine. The IT market is growing in Ukraine and offers a wide range of services at attractive prices.
Team builds easily in Ukraine
On average, it takes three months to recruit a Ruby on Rails development team of 5 developers. Depending on the requirements, this time can increase up to 4-6 months. To attract Ruby developers, any seasoned recruiter needs to know their incentives. A good salary is no longer the main thing that can attract an experienced Ruby on Rails expert in Ukraine. One of the main benefits that a professional Ruby on Rails developer can draw is the availability of complex frameworks and great technologies to learn as part of a Ruby project. Additionally, they often prefer flexibility. Many experienced Ruby developers want to participate in open source projects and have the opportunity to attend conferences and training worldwide. They are always looking to expand their technology stack and are available to collaborate with international companies.
