On our teams page you can find our available teams in a certain time-span and price-range. This allows you to get a good impression of our possibilities.
However, we understand that the team you choose has to fit you and your situation. This is why in practice we always align with our clients in detail to compose a suitable team.
Find highlights of the process below.
Step 1: Getting to know each other
We, including a technical senior, will visit you or have a skype call to get to know you and the challenges. We will be respecting the corona-proof measures obviously.
Working remote is part of our DNA so any option should be fine!
Step 2: Customer's challenges
Tell us about the challenge there is. Common challenges we usually see at customers are:
- More development capacity is needed for a project
- The deadline needs to be met
- The current local development team has too much work and pressure
- Recruitment: expensive, time-consuming and what skills will you get?
- Speed to market is needed to speed up return on investment
- What if a key developer leaves
- The current ICT provider is no longer aligned
- Looking for a fall back supplier / expertise as alternative to the current ICT provider
- There is a single point of failure, to be mitigated
- System knowledge is at just a few people
- Scaling up is usually costly and time consuming
- Moving from backend to frontend to (ERP) integration and mobile projects is a hassle for HR
- Specific expertise is required in a certain development- or domain area which needs to be just temporarily engaged
- Expertise and experience
- Build new opportunities with new technologies, not yet available in your own teams
- Integrate your different platforms with dedicated specialists needed
- Lack of experience to be more effective and avoid known pitfalls
- Need a fresh look on your current architecture and roadmap
- Financial reasons (last but not least)
- Our pricing estimates to be equivalent or less than local payroll expenses
- No recruitment fees, this is included in the hourly rates
- Delaying starting development soon, as recruitment is already done
- Replacing more expensive local hires or consultants with experienced affordable nearshore capacity
- Not able to estimate how long people are needed and able to change capacity with few efforts
- Less time needed to get a team up to speed, as more teammembers usually have worked together and know each others skills.
Step 3: Scaling up as possible solution?
Would scaling up with hybrid (mixed locally and remote) or remote teams be a solution in the current situation?
Usually in above challenges, Team As A Service can surely be a good solution.
When you have a remote team or team members up and running, you have a scalable, flexible and experienced workforce.
Once you are used to working with remote teams, you will be more agile and better prepared for changes.
Together we can discuss if working with remote or mixed teams is feasible.
Step 4: How to scale up
Working with hybrid (mixed locally and remote) or remote teams can be set up gradually.
There are different ways to scale up with remote team members, for example:
- start with a smaller team, not yet a full team to scale up in control
- start with 1 or 2 remote developers and let them work with your own team on a current project to increase capacity or extend with field knowledge
- split your own team into two teams and add remote developers to each of your teams, providing supplementary skills and transferring knowledge of the project and ways of working.
- distinct a separate functionality or project for separate remote development
- finish a current project with extra remote people and make new mixed teams afterwards, for flexibility and scalability
Step 5: Agreements and on boarding
We have signed NDA's and we provide you with a contract that covers all necessary topics (IP, non-compete, privacy, etc) to protect you as the client. You are the owner of the developed code.
After signing the agreements, we proceed to on boarding the team.
You provide access to the necessary resources and environments like vpn's, tools and repositories to the team.
Development can start!
Step 6: Part of the team
It is our goal to make this a long-term successful cooperation where we substantially contribute to the wellbeing of your company.
During cooperation, we can modify the team(s) as the required skills may change during the process so we will keep matching required skills for ongoing projects.
We facilitate in overall and technical directions if needed.
We aim for being part of your workforce,
