Thanks to technology, the world has gotten very small. Companies can now create global software development hubs which allow them to stay connected easily, and makes building and scaling development teams more affordable. It also enables them to hire specialized talent in other countries that can’t be found locally. This concept—Offshoring—has become incredibly popular. It’s in the same pot as the Outsourcing and Onshoring noodles, but Offshoring holds the sauce much better when it comes to software development. Let’s boil it all down:
You know where you’re going and we know how to get you there. Call turnkey today to get your team—and your product
Offshore staffing, or Offshoring, is the hiring process that some of the smartest software companies use to build teams of employees. These teams are jam-packed with highly specialized technical talent, are found and built overseas, and are well-known for their ability to help companies scale product development while coming in under budget.
If you’re reading this, it’s probably because a) you need talented and experienced software developers, and b) you’re geeks like us (congrats!). And like us, you’ve got your eye on the dollars and cents you’re tossing at every solution that comes your way.
You have options. But when you insist on hiring locally, one of three things is likely to happen: you pay through the nose, you get whoever is available (whether good or not), or you can’t find what you need when you need it.
That’s when offshore staffing saunters in the room. Ready to make your dreams come true, she’s hard-working, talented, and all about the work. But do you know how to navigate this situation on your own? Even the smoothest talker needs a wingman—TurnKey has your back. With us, hiring an offshore team is a win/win. Here’s why:
You’re going to love these:
If you need to scale and build but your internal teams need a boost, get to offshoring. Turnkey can help
This isn’t a question. We know you want to scale. Remember in one of our recent blogs where we wrote that the one who scales first usually wins? We get the sense if you’re reading this, you’re one of the winners. In which case Offshoring is the answer for you. Don’t run your own team ragged when you can hire a remote team to help.
We’ve got the pros and cons down. So now let’s compare Offshoring to our YOURshoring model so you can truly understand why the second option is so good.
Quick background: before we put our TurnKey boots on, we wore your shoes. We were entrepreneurs in the software development world, and we experienced firsthand all of the frustrations that come along with scaling, building a product, and finding high-quality developers. We decided to create what we couldn’t find, and TurnKey was born. We love Offshoring, but we are obsessed with doing it your way—YOURshoring is where it’s at.
You can’t directly control the team, how they’re paid, or their schedule, vibe, or work style.
Your team is fully dedicated to your product and you hold the reins that guide timing, delivery, communication, and productivity. (Feels good, doesn’t it?)
Your remote team is doing the work, but the churn is rough. Fully 40% of remote developers bail when a better gig comes along, leaving you to start over.
YOURshoring is perfect for organizations looking to build a team that sticks—they’re focused on you, dedicated to your culture and project, and paid well. They’re happy for the long haul, which makes you happy, too.
Most offshore firms are going to fill your roles with whoever they have available. Might be a good fit, but probably not a great one.
TurnKey recruits talent especially for you and your role. No square pegs with us…you’re going to get someone who gets you and gets the job done right. Frankly, they’re so good, they’ll keep you on the cutting edge in their area of specialty.
Remember that 40% churn we talked about up there? Yeah. High turnover means a lot of starting over on your end. Not exactly great for productivity.
TurnKey’s talent retention program is outstanding. We reduce churn by ensuring professional development and training, keeping the culture positive, and helping talent grow personally and professionally. Why? Because happy people do good work.
Most of the time, you are kept out of the payment loop. If you don’t know what your staff is being paid, you don’t know how to reward them or how to measure your success.
With TurnKey and YOURshoring, you are in the driver’s seat and the view is clear for miles. You’ll know how much your developers earn, how to keep them motivated, and how productive they are.
Generally speaking, your offshore team feels like they’re disconnected. They are loyal to their firm and to themselves, so if another gig comes up, they’re not going to have you top of mind.
The YOURshore team you hire through TurnKey is embedded into your company. They don’t just work on your product, they become a valuable part of your organization. They feel it, they embrace it, and they’re loyal to it.
All you have to do is ask.
TurnKey has extensive operations in Eastern Europe including in countries like Poland, Ukraine, and Romania—perfect locales for businesses that aim to scale. These countries are famous for professional universities and their talented, specialized graduates (as well as their lower cost of living and tax rates).
Want a team in a closer time zone? No problem. We’ve also got incredible Nearshoring options in Latin America—particularly in Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico.
With TurnKey, we guarantee:
TurnKey also handles the logistics:
Ultimately, the talent you hire through TurnKey is YOURS. We even sign a contract and assign all IP rights to your organization.
Offshoring has a handful of pros and another handful of cons. When you upgrade to a YOURshore situation with TurnKey, you’re going all-pro because we navigate the tough stuff and amp up the good ones.
There’s no harm in learning more. You owe it to your culture, to your leadership team, and to your existing staff. Take the opportunity to increase your profit, flexibility, and productivity.
You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. Lace up your high tops, warm up, and get your team in the playoffs.
An offshore staff is a team of specialists who live and work overseas to meet your project needs or critical business goals. Considering the time difference, such employees may perform their tasks in a different time zone. But they may adjust their work time to meet your requirements.
Let us count the ways (and the reasons):
Hiring offshore professionals provide US-based companies with a game-changing competitive edge. They obtain affordable access to a global talent pool with the highest possible skills and necessary technical expertise.
That’s part of what TurnKey does for firms like yours. Our team takes care of things like job posting, interviewing, and assessing talent. We hire, help retain, and handle payroll, among other things.
Offshoring is great. YOURshoring is freaking awesome. Call us and you’ll see.
