Working with remote employees has become a common practice among modern companies. Since, finding the qualified workers is no longer constrained by such factors as company’s field of work, size, and location, many companies are used to embrace the unique benefits of hiring separate remote workers and the whole teams.
Startup companies are most likely to offer the remote employment. Often they hire remote technical talent for cutting costs on yearly wages, workplace, office maintenance, taxes and saving the time by avoiding the management headache. This is why a remote team with its appropriate cost wins big, compared to the in-house one.
While searching for a local development team, you might find that their number is rather limited, and the best ones are already employed. With a global search, you will have to choose from a great number of professionals with different skills, experience, and rates. Try to not get seduced by low-priced offers, because there will be a plenty of them, and remember an old adage “If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys”.
When companies think of web development of new projects or maintenance of current ones, very often they have only ideas and vague concepts rather than an exact plan, budget, technology requirements and preferences. Not to mention, that they have no clue about how to organize the whole process. These companies really need all-in-one development solution. And this could be a qualified remote development team, that would suggest the best way of fulfilling client’s ideas.
Not employing an in-house development team is a common issue for most non-technical companies. They do not need an in-house team as they do not usually have a constant flow of tasks to keep them occupied with. However, a lot of technical companies avoid hiring the complete in-house team for new projects to save their precious time. Having in mind that forming an own in-house team, checking if they can effectively work together, and deliver the required results is a really time-consuming business, these companies prefer having on board a well-organized remote development team.
Speaking of saving time, there is one more significant benefit of working with a remote team. This is the lack of commute time. If in your company a commute time is regarded as working time, then outsourcing would be the right choice.
Thanks for reading, and best of luck with the hiring of developers.
