Struggling to hire offshore developers?

Hiring tech talent is no brainer for startups. The talent that they are hunting for, is scarce and expensive. From climbing tech talent shortage to burgeoning competition – the struggle is real!

Tech Talent Shortage

The no 1 challenge for emerging startups is to source highly qualified software engineers is the talent shortage. The dearth of niche skills and rising demands have created an imbalance in the ecosystem.

Prolonged Hiring Processes

A lot of technical aspects are associated with engineering positions. Matching the right skills with the right job is time-consuming, making the hiring process lengthy.

Unstructured Interview Processes

Founders – having a lot on their plate, might not put much thought into their interview process. It often results in wrong hiring and a substandard candidate experience.

Cut-throat Competition

Early-stage founders compete with larger, better-funded tech behemoths in this war for talent. Developers tend to choose bigger paychecks and benefits.

Employer brand

75% of job seekers consider the employer’s reputation before applying. Establishing a reputation when a business is just getting off the ground is difficult for startups.

Technical proficiency

Most non-tech founders often face challenges in finding the right talent. They are unable to run an effective vetting process to match qualified engineers.

Skills to look for when hiring overseas developers

The success of a tech company lives and dies on the strength of its developers. Make sure you look for these skills before hiring remote engineers.

Programming Skills

The developers' language proficiency should align with your requirements. Besides, you must ensure the developer has an in-depth knowledge of trending technologies and rich industry experience.

Remote work experience

Remote working requires regular use of remote tools such as Slack, Trello, Basecamp, etc. Hiring remote developers well acquainted with such tools will help them collaborate with other team members easier and faster.

Development expertise is no good if your developers cannot communicate with the manager, teammates, and other stakeholders. Good communication skills are one of the basic criteria for hiring remote software engineers.

Learning & Work Patterns

Your selection parameters must include the flexibility levels of the developers. Since all tech projects are subject to changing project demands and timelines, remote developers must have an adaptable and flexible approach to work.

Stellar Interpersonal Skills

For developers, team interactions and cohesiveness are equally important to the code they write. Check your developers' interpersonal skills by conducting personality assessment tests.

Creative & Innovative

A lot of aspects, such as the design, colors, and layout of the software play a major role in the development process. Creativity coupled with tech expertise enables engineers to solve problems much faster.
