Technology businesses are struggling to find local engineering talent. Nearly every market in the U.S. is impacted. We hear these challenges from technology executives in Boston, Chicago, Baltimore, to smaller markets in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont.
As engineering managers, we developed processes and communication methods that enabled us to run collocated (centralized) engineering teams along with distributed team members, highly effectively.
Distributed engineering teams were pioneered by software innovators like Automattic, Github, 37 Signals, and Zapier, and are proven to work in fast-paced agile product development. Using similar models you can:
- hire better matched skills, now that geography isn’t a factor
- shorten time-to-hire
- gain the flexibility to utilize contracted developers, to ramp-up and down when needed
What we do
Top Talent Engineers
Assess your needs, and procure developers with high-talent in your technology. You have the final say about who’s on your team. Start with 1 or 2 engineers, and grow as needed. All the HR and overhead is managed for you.
You get a team of developers dedicated to you and your projects. The team is managed, and resides in one location. You receive a team lead who will on-board and facilitate the projects and relationship.
Guide you on best practices in running remote engineering teams. We have a lot of experience! We help you from early on-boarding to running at peak performance, assuring your success.
An efficient, high performing engineering team. The help you need to manage your projects, efficiently and productively.
Over the years, we’ve developed a program to assess your team’s performance. We can pin-point potential problems and opportunities for improvement.
A report with metrics on your team’s performance, and very specific guidance on how to keep your team running at peak. We intervene with our recommendations, on your behalf.
Teams are deployed in emerging high-tech markets
The best teams formulate in high-tech markets, with top-ranking technical universities, and an established engineering culture. Companies can find one-off talent, but building truly high-performing and resilient teams is more about the right foundations.
Engineers are graduates of top-ranking universities, and are culturally similar to the U.S.
Most failures in remote projects occur because of cultural and educational gaps. We carefully select engineers who graduate from top technical universities and have experience communicating proactively and fluently with U.S. personnel.
We teach the best practices of remote project management
Managing remote teams is different than managing co-located teams. We offer our best practices and on-going support to help you optimize your engineering and communication processes for remote management.
Experts in facilitating engineering teams for U.S. businesses
Through the past 8 years, we’ve battle-tested offshore providers with real projects. We’re hands-on with them, and have developed trusted relationships. We know who excels at running remote engineering hubs, and in some cases we’ve helped them establish their processes. We work with those who share our philosophy of building long-term trusted relationships.
