Cliff Reeves, General Manager, Emerging Business Team, Microsoft Corporation stated: ”Belarus has a reputation of a country with a high scientific potential. This reputation is not gained overnight. It takes 50-60 years to establish a strong education system with highly qualified faculty“.
The Belarus software engineers frequently win worldwide software competitions, demonstrating the highest qualification and experience levels. For many years at a run the team of the Belarusian State University is among the top out of over 3,000 teams at ACM International Programming Contest.
Quality: 50 years of software industry.
IT industry development in Belarus has deep historical roots. More than 40 years of scientific research in hi-tech fields created a world-leading system of technical education and training. As a result, the country's scientific and academic infrastructure still produces top quality engineering specialists.

Recruiting the top talent in Belarus is challenging as well, but less so than in the US.

Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely not! Good software engineers should be hired regardless of their physical location. US based software engineers are compensated at a higher cost, however, there are also advantages of them being in the US. For instance, they are available in the same time zones as your US based clients, and they have physical access to the infrastructure of your company. They are the ones who are available to work on emergency situations during business hours in the US time zones, and they are the ones who are available to work directly with your US based customers. In addition, the vibrant technology market in the US is a magnet for many A-players from all over the world, so the talent pool can not be underestimated. However, there are many great engineers in the rest of the world as well, including Belarus and Russia. Building a team with the most talented engineers in different parts of the world makes just most sense.
