So you’ve decided to hire a dedicated development team for your software project. Great choice! Now you’re faced with the question: how do you hire a dedicated software development team? You need the right team, but with so many options available, it can be tricky to find exactly what you need.
You have to be realistic about your budget, and the talent available at your price point. Hitting the sweet spot between cost and quality is a real challenge, and finding the ideal dedicated development team takes careful consideration. So where do you start? Here’s our guide to choosing a dedicated team.
There are a number of steps to follow when choosing your dedicated development team, many of which can apply to hiring any external developer or outsourcing company:
There’s no doubt that by using a dedicated offshore development team, you can save on costs without compromising on quality. But where can you find one?
Websites like Upwork, Freelancer, or Toptal connect you with individual freelancers or dedicated development teams. You can review profiles, portfolios, and client reviews.
Platforms like Stack Overflow Jobs or GitHub Jobs feature listings for developers and dedicated teams with specific skills and expertise.
Explore outsourcing platforms such as Clutch, GoodFirms, or Extract.co, where you can find and compare dedicated development teams based on reviews and ratings.
Use professional networks like LinkedIn to connect with development teams, explore their profiles, and engage in discussions to assess their suitability for your project.
Attend industry conferences and events to network with potential development teams. This allows for face-to-face interactions and a deeper understanding of their capabilities.
Seek recommendations from colleagues, friends, or industry peers who have experience working with dedicated development teams. Personal referrals can provide valuable insights.
Participate in online communities and forums such as GitHub, Reddit, or specialized tech forums to discover and connect with dedicated development teams.
Explore local or global agencies that specialize in software development. They often have dedicated teams with diverse skill sets and experience.
Hire consultancy services that can help match your project requirements with suitable dedicated development teams, ensuring a tailored fit.
Use platforms like Twitter, Facebook groups, or industry-specific forums to find and connect with dedicated development teams.
At Proshore, we take a 3-phase approach to setting up your dedicated software development team. Here’s how it works:
Jeroen and the team analyse your challenges to come up with a customized plan and proposal based on what you need.
Your plan covers setting up team roles and tasks. Babish, our CTO, assembles the best team available from our talent pool and shares it with you for approval.
Test your team’s output during a 60-day trial period. Not happy with someone? We work with you to replace them at no extra cost.
Add new talent to your team or scale down based on your goals and roadmap. No recruiting, hiring or HR paperwork.
Whether you are looking for a self-managed development team or dedicated developers to augment your capacity, Proshore’s got you covered.
Pick your perfect team from our pool of over 4,000 vetted talents, adding specific skills and expertise without full-time hiring – so you’re not paying full salaries for people you rarely need. Not only that, you get a team that’s incentivized to work with you long-term, and we do the hiring – so there’s no HR paperwork needed.
As early ‘agile’ adopters, our way of working enables active collaboration without you having to micromanage, resulting in consistent turnover of scalable output, often before time-to-market. Our decade-long experience ensures that working across different time zones is no problem. Everyone is kept up to speed with the project at all times.
Best of all, you get a self-managed, dedicated team that can operate on their own at half the price of European and US equivalents.
