Nearshore Staff Augmentation Services

Scale your team with next-level talent you can trust.

Staff augmentation is a cost-effective and reliable way to grow your team, offering you both the power to fill positions quickly, and the freedom to adjust the size of your team as you go.

What is Staff Augmentation?

Staff augmentation allows companies of all sizes to scale software development reliably and efficiently without investing in infrastructure.

With nearshore staff augmentation services, you can work with talent from anywhere in the world without worrying about the legal, administrative, or organizational responsibilities of hiring them directly.

What Is Nearshore Staff Augmentation And How Does It Work?

IT staff augmentation consists of the strategic hiring of IT professionals from outside your organization to fill in and upgrade your development solutions, provide additional expertise and resources, access a larger and more diverse workforce, hire developers at a lower cost, or fill in temporary roles.

Through nearshore staff augmentation, your company can rapidly hire a remote team of developers from a nearby country or region for a fraction of the price of hiring in-house staff. Moreover, you can work with development talent from anywhere in the world without worrying about the legal, administrative, or organizational responsibilities of hiring them directly.

How it works

Discuss your project

We identify what you are looking for in a software developer, designer, or project manager, and what skills and qualities are important for your project. Based on these conversations, we create a profile of the different roles you need to fill.

Identify the right candidates

After our discovery process, we begin identifying candidates that are a good fit. We search our extensive database, finding developers with a track record of success on similar projects. All of our developers go through a thorough vetting process to ensure they’re a flawless fit for your project.

Meet your new developers

When we’ve identified the right team members, we present you with profiles that include a brief on their work, previous projects, and their development experience. Next, we arrange an introductory call so that you can meet your new team members.

Start working

Once we've assembled the right team, we simply need to set a start date. We provide the support you need to ensure a successful working relationship. We'll check in regularly with you to make sure things are going smoothly, but will allow you to lead your project and have full control.

Our tried and tested technical hiring process:


Intake call with our client:

The first step of our process is to learn as much about you and your development needs as possible.
During our intake call, we’ll go over every key detail necessary to recruit developers who are the right for your company. This is where you can tell us how you want to customize our standard procedures - if needed.


HR Interview with potential candidates:

As the first point of contact with the candidate, our technical recruiters will participate in an hour of engaging conversation with all developers.
There are three pillars to this phone interview: technical knowledge, cultural fit, and English proficiency level. Only those who meet the requirements for all three categories will continue with the process.


Live pair-programming session:

The final element of our technical recruitment process is to measure the developer’s coding skills through a live assessment with a senior evaluator.
We evaluate every candidate beyond technical skills, taking into consideration their problem-solving abilities, and determining whether the candidate will be able to adapt to the fast-paced environment of North American organizations.
