Tips For Choosing The Right Staff Augmentation Company For Your Software Development Team Needs


Congratulations! Your software development startup just got funded. Relief at last, right? Actually, it’s just the opposite. Now the pressure is on to deliver what you promised your investors in your growth plan. Enter the priority “trilemma.” Your business needs a high-quality software development team, and it must be active right away. But you also need to keep your costs on budget. If you can’t have it all, what would you give up: quality, speed or cost?

Facing the Trilemma with Staff Augmentation

You might think the tech downturn means you can now have it all. But even though there is a slight relief, it’s more of a leveling off on engineering salary demands. The demand for domestic engineers in the United States and Canada is 10 times the supply, and the junior and mid-level talent being laid off is being snatched up by other companies within days. That means it’s still expensive and slow to get quality hires.

So what do you do when the domestic talent pool is limited, and you cannot afford to compete on pricing in America? Get innovative and use staff augmentation. For those not familiar with the term, staff augmentation is when you fill in your talent gaps using a third-party team. This could look like filling in spots on an existing scrum team or bringing in a whole scrum team to work alongside your existing teams.

5 Tips For Vetting Staff Augmentation Companies

So if you’re interested in partnering with a staff augmentation company, how do you find and build trust with one? Your best bet is to use a systematic vetting process that ensures you will be successful no matter what your parameters are.
