More than two thirds of daily business transactions are supported by the COBOL programming language. Especially since the creation of the European payment-integration initiative SEPA , COBOL developers have seen an increase in demand. However, although this is positive for COBOL specialists, it is the start of a larger problem for companies. The higher demand is making it more and more difficult to find a suitable software developer experienced in COBOL.
Looking for a COBOL developer?
We have them!
Two key aspects affect the lack of COBOL developers: COBOL was developed in the end of the 1950s, and is one of the oldest programming languages in the world. This is also reflected in the educational system. Many universities do not teach their students COBOL as a programming language any longer. Young professionals also prefer to use trendy skills such as developing cloud apps with ASP.NET and JSON. This has resulted in the majority of COBOL developers who can develop complex projects being over 50 years old, and ready to retire.
outsourcing4work helps companies find the right COBOL developer despite the lack of these developers. And without having to compromise on the software developer’s quality of work.

This unique offshore outsourcing concept combines the qualities of a European business with the advantages provided by the world’s largest outsourcing market – India.
