The number of vacancies for IT professionals is a third more than the number of job seekers in this industry.
3 June 2021
The demand for IT experts in Ukraine exceeds their number. According to the job search website for IT specialists Djinni, 16,000 professionals are currently looking for a job in Ukraine, while the number of active job offers is 21,000. The shortage equals 5,000 employees.
The demand has started increasing after the first lockdown in April 2020. Since then, the number of openings for IT specialists has been constantly growing. At the same time, the number of IT specialists actively looking for a job is decreasing.
Job search peaked in the summer of 2020. Since then, the number of resumes on the website has been decreasing.

In early 2021, the number of available specialists and demand became almost equal. There are now more openings every week and fewer IT experts looking for a job.
«What we see is not only relevant for Ukraine but also a common trend around the world. The demand for IT professionals in Ukraine has been growing for the last 15 years. Now the ‘delayed’ demand has joined in because—at the beginning of the quarantine—some businesses were temporarily not hiring specialists»,
— Maksym Koval, Head of Customer Operations at Djinni, says.
«We also see a similar trend on Work.ua. Applicants are now looking for a job less actively than last year, although there are more vacancies. IT job seekers realize that this is their market and wait for offers from employers rather than look for jobs themselves»,
— Karine Makian, PR Manager at Work.ua, says.
