7 Apr 2016 Kharkiv by Ciklum Kharkiv is home to one of the six Ciklum software development offices in Ukraine. Our office has been located in the heart of the city’s technology district for nine years. Kharkiv is the second-largest city in Ukraine, with a long history as a cultural center. Over 16% of all Ukrainian programmers work in Kharkiv. Considering that Kharkiv is smaller than Kyiv, the salaries are therefore a bit lower than Kyiv, which makes the city an extremely attractive place for starting a software development project or establishing a team.
