Why choose Chisinau to extend your software development team to?

Perfectly reasonable question. We’re going to give you a perfectly reasonable answer.

Economic environment

You can think of Chișinău as the IT Park of Moldova. Seriously. We’re going to tell you about a a little IT Parkception here.

Chișinău has an IT Park. Think of it as the IT Park within an IT Park. 

The IT Park has been continuously growing since its beginnings in 2018.

Currently, it’s host to 698 official residents and some 12000 employees, and it’s growing so quickly that by the time you finish this article, another company will have applied for a space.

151 of the companies in the IT Park have foreign capital, so t if you want to extend your team in Moldova, you’re not joining some unproven social experiment. You’ve already got peers here.

Now, Chișinău itself is the IT Park of the country, since most of the IT companies are concentrated here.

Thus, Moldova has an IT Park – Chișinău – which also has an IT Park.

Why so many IT Parks? Well the IT industry has the well-deserved reputation of being pretty much the best paid option in Moldova, so many people (especially young people) are jumping in. 

Many Moldavians are even changing their professions to get involved in IT, so trust us, you’re just on the top of the wave.

Geographic competitive advantage

Chisinau has an advantageous strategic location unrivaled by most neighboring cities. Moldova falls within the GMT +3 time zone, which makes it very convenient to set up meetings with your extended software development team. The city is served by a modern international airport and convenient airline connections..

There’s more – the cultural component

People in Moldova can work, and they will..


The work ethic in the IT industry in Moldova is very similar to that of Western businesses. Moldavian developers aren’t just performers. They’re open to challenges and confrontation, get personally involved in the projects they’re working on, and are interested in facilitating their success.


A recent survey revealed that, if treated with dignity, respect, and appreciation, 60% of Moldavians are ready to work even more than officially asked to. They also spend extra time developing their skills by reading educational materials and attending courses and IT events.

Best4u’s work model – extended teams – keeps employees in touch with their centralized teams at your headquarters, so you can always be aware of their work environment and respond to questions, concerns, and feedback.

The big financial advantage

Lower costs, man. Simple as that. Eastern Europe is economically cheaper than Western Europe and other regions. It’s certainly more expensive than some other places, but it’s still wallet friendly.
You’ll get quality work done with less logistics, maintenance, and wage expenses.
It’s also important to know that, since the IT industry produces an important part of the GDP (7,1% in 2019), it’s something of a national darling, so everyone’s working for its stability and continued success.
We put just as much effort into our personal relationship with you, so you can always be confident in our partnership. .

To sum up, the IT market dynamics, large pool of IT professionals, and great geographical location makes Chisinau an attractive IT destination.
