Why Talent
From Macedonia?

As one of the fastest growing markets in South-Eastern Europe for IT services, Macedonia is becoming a major player in the industry of creating new and high-quality talented professionals that have great potential. As one of the most attractive career paths in the country, software development is attracting a huge number of students that want to learn and work as software developers.

The industry is getting a lot of traction in the last few years, with a very high number of new companies starting from scratch or opening an office in Macedonia. This is because of the constant stream of new developers joining the industry and that number is only going to go up.

Macedonia has a strong foundation in guiding and teaching young people in the STEM fields. With the number of students growing because of the many possibilities after graduation, there is a lot of untapped potential to be explored and nurtured.

The average gross-salary for professionals in computer programming, consultancy and related services is just above 1500 USD, which is at least 60% lower than the salary in the US and Western Europe.

Foreign languages, especially English, are introduced to students from a very small age, being mandatory in elementary and high school. This helps instil fluency and proficiency from the start and makes talent more attractive.
