Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, a number of platforms have sprung up to help people find tech jobs in Europe. But getting Ukraine’s tech talent into work hasn’t been an easy task, and regulatory barriers are proving difficult to navigate.
More than 3.6m refugees have fled Ukraine in the last month, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Many have lost their homes, their jobs and their sources of income.
Meanwhile within Ukraine, 79% of companies have stopped their operations totally or partially, according to the Ukrainian Centre of Economic Recovery and Advanter Group, as nearly all of Ukraine’s big cities come under attack.
Members of the tech industry hope to help by matching startup workers with jobs they can do from wherever they find themselves. But it’s not proving all that easy, as plenty of regulatory barriers still remain.
