European city top with most IT specialists: Bucharest on 16th


There are over 800,000 IT specialists in Central and Eastern Europe, which means there are more talented people in the field in this area than in countries like Germany, Great Britain or France. Bucharest, Warsaw, Budapest and Vienna are four capitals in the top of European cities with most IT specialists.

London ranks first with over 300,000 specialists, followed by Paris (181,000) and Moscow (144,000).

Bucharest ranks 16th with over 53,700 IT specialists, and is followed by Milan, Copenhagen and Rome, but is surpassed by Budapest (57,900).

The same report shows that startups in the area are satisfied by the easiness of finding IT specialists in the CEE area (55%), but software developers say about 80% of expenses represent costs with programmers’ salaries, even if they are considered lower than those of IT specialists in other European countries. Even in Vienna, the capital of the most developed state in  the area their salaries are 20% lower than those of programmers in Germany, the report shows.
