SquadGurus and Ukraine

SquadGurus and Ukraine

The tragic and indefensible invasion of Ukraine by Russia and Belarus has shocked all of us. As citizens of the world, we are all impacted in one way or another by these events. Our prayers, thoughts and safe wishes are with the Ukrainian people.

SquadGurus is a global company, with partners throughout Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia. Several of our partners and friends are in Ukraine – in cities including Kharkiv, Kyiv, Lviv and others. Ukraine is a beautiful country with a rich history and wonderful people, many of whom I consider my friends.

Ukraine is also a very large technology hub with a superbly talented workforce and home to over 1,000 high-quality IT service providers. In the midst of this conflict many of them are reporting disruptions. This is to be expected. We expect this to be a temporary situation given the importance of the technology sector to the Ukrainian economy.

Romain Rebour is our head of Customer Success and EMEA and resides in Krakow, Poland. He and many others are working to provide accommodations for Ukrainian people throughout Europe, and is involved in NGO and other efforts to ensure continuity for both the people and the technology sector. I’m sure many of our other partners in Poland, Romania and other countries in Europe are doing the same.

SquadGurus stands by our partners and friends in Ukraine and looks forward to continuing our collaboration with them for software, cloud and other technology requirements when they are ready (hopefully very soon!).

Thank you for your support!

John, Lisa and Romain

SquadGurus Survey – Ukraine IT Services and the War with Russia

Two years into a global pandemic, when the tech economy in Ukraine was soaring and 30% salary increases for engineers was common, Russia invaded and upended everything. This led us to conduct a survey of the market to see what was going on. The results are fascinating and point to the resilience of both the tech services market and the Ukrainian people.
