People choose to outsource software developers for really three reasons: mitigate the risk of building their own in-house team, gain access to expertise that may not be available to them locally, and gain a more affordable workforce than sourcing locally. These reasons apply to all types of outsourcing from back office to software development to legal process.
- Mitigate Risk. There is a lot of risk that comes along with hiring in-house and locally. This risk includes full-time salary, benefits, and if you will be able to find the right person. Whether you choose to hire locally or outsource, you need to be sure that you have a sophisticated recruiting process that will help you identify the best candidates.
- Access To Expertise Not Otherwise Available. There is a competitive market for top talent, especially for software developers in the United States. With tech startups turning billion-dollar companies, the demand for skilled software developers is higher than ever. Recruiting in a company with more supply and less demand means that top talent will likely be more accessible to you than, for instance, in the US, where the demand for software developers exceeds the supply.
- Affordable. By outsourcing software developers, we find that most people are able to save between 50-70% versus hiring the same caliber of developer locally.
At SourceBold, we do all three for our customers. We work hard to find you the right software developer by leveraging our global network of developers and sophisticated recruiting and hiring process. We then go the extra step and provide you with built in local project management time to ease the transition to managing a remote team and provide you added value in something you will need anyways.
