Get Ukrainian tech talent hired: VanHack waives placement fees
VanHack aims to connect employers with hundreds of Ukrainian developers seeking remote work or relocation opportunities.
In an ongoing commitment to help tech professionals get hired remotely, VanHack, a global leader in tech recruitment, is announcing that it will be waiving its placement fee for all Ukrainian tech hires. The global tech recruitment company is also encouraging employers to donate to verified Ukrainian-based charities in lieu of its placement fee.
“It’s incredible to see an outpour of support from our global community, and since last week 62 employers have already connected to find out how they can help and hire Ukrainian talent looking for remote and relocation opportunities,” said Ilya Brotzky, CEO, VanHack.
Over the past 6 years, VanHack has helped employers hire over 1,500 tech talent and has a strong community of 700 Ukrainian tech professionals.
Known globally as a vibrant tech hub, Ukraine is reportedly home to over 240,000+ tech workers. But with fighting and tensions escalating, many of the country’s talent is faced with the difficult decision to safely evacuate or stay and protect their homeland.
And as more countries are expediting visa processing for Ukrainian nationals, VanHack’s global mobility team is equipped to support Ukrainian tech talent by offering emergency immigration and relocation services for hires, as well as additional financial and logistical assistance through its partners.
VanHack has also set up additional tools and resources to connect employers with Ukrainian developers looking to get hired remotely or safely relocated while taking into careful consideration restrictions inhibiting global mobility for different groups.

Being in the global tech hiring space, VanHack is uniquely positioned to help improve the lives of many Ukrainian tech professionals and we hope through the collective efforts with employers, will lead to as many lives changed as possible,” adds Ilya Brotzky, CEO at VanHack.
