RIGA, Latvia - March 10, 2022 - PRLog -- We are all seeing changes in the labor market lately. It became extremely difficult to find a serious and professional candidate. If we compare 2022 with, say, 2010. In 2010, you could easily find and hire a specialist with 10 years of experience in Latvia. What can you say about the situation today? - It's hard work, it's true. Software developers are asking for space rates. There is a lot of competition among employers themselves. In addition to paying for vacation pay, insurance, a gym, companies began to offer even more bonuses. Like providing branded laptops, paying for lunches, being able to work 4 days a week, etc. In turn, senior professionals are always reluctant to agree to any changes in their working lives. Most often, they have already found their dream company in which they are comfortable working and do not want to change anything.

Is it possible to expand the search area and find the same candidate, say, in the nearest countries - Lithuania and Estonia? - Certainly. You can search in different countries, but everything will depend on your declared budget. If we compare the Baltic market, the most expensive developers are in Estonia, followed by Lithuania and Latvia.

I know that we have branches of many Swedish, German, and Swiss companies in Latvia. Many talented programmers are now working in these branches directly. What do you think? Does this fact complicate your work of finding programmers here in Latvia?
- You are right. What conditions do these Swedish firms offer? What projects? What are the salaries? Of course, Scandinavian companies can offer much more favorable and attractive conditions for developers. It became difficult for us to compete with them.

And despite these numbers, do you have trouble finding programmers? What do you think?
- A graduate of the institute is a Junior position. It will take a few more years until his qualifications grow to the level requested by clients. The issue of professional development is complex and expensive. Despite this, our company manages to bring up 5-6 middle-level software developers per year on average. But of course, this is not enough. We currently have 36 positions open. And it's our job to fill them.

Tatiana thanks for your time and good luck in your search for well-prepared developers!
