There has been no difference in the number8s vs full-time our client engineers. The engineers number8 has provided us have really hit the ground running and have been able to contribute as fast if not faster than people we’re hiring from the outside.
On-Demand IT & Development Talent
We are the alternative to a software development staffing firm, as we place contract and full time IT & development talent with our customers. Often, our clients ask us to make arrangements for them to hire our developers full-time because they are that good!
Our consulting and staffing engagements are highly flexible and scalable; we can provide you with a half or full SCRUM development team up to dozens of professionals with specific subject matter expertise. Most of our clients scale up over time once they see how much value our project consultants and developers bring to their organizations.
The goal is to make your process as seamless and painless as possible. In fact, we do not hold you to any contractual commitments. You can cancel the engagement any time without any penalty.
If you are not completely satisfied with your developers, we will find replacements immediately.
Accelerate Your Software Development
We provide you with access to the skills and resources you need to accelerate software development. We can place talent in your organization in under a week, and often within a day, depending on requirements.
number8 developers typically make a noticeable, immediate impact within the very first week. Your contracted development consultant is backed by a full support team comprised of an account manager, team lead, engagement manager, and development manager.
Our own in-house development team and full-service support organization can provide assistance 24x7.

The people that are coming in have had other experiences that other people on our team have not had. Our most tenured people have not been exposed to the same technologies that the number8 engineers have. One number8 is more architecturally focused. We’re using him to help review the architectural decisions we’re making and getting his input. You come into something with an understanding of ‘how things have been done in the past’ while bringing a fresh perspective.
Overall, our experience with number8 and the quality of their candidates and vetting process has given us the ability to expand faster.
When we started with number8, we were facing a labor shortage that created a need within our organization to augment our teams with high quality staff members that worked in our timezone. number8 was extremely quick to find the right people for our teams. Over the years, our experience has shown us that number8 isn’t your typical contract scenario. We have number8 team members that have been with us for over 10 years. To us, their consultants are, for all intents and purposes, considered employees. In fact, several number8’s are in leadership roles because they grew to become the most trusted people within certain teams.
The value of nearshore is really in the cultural similarities. We were used to India and culturally they were very accepting of everything we would say or ask for. With our nearshore team, we experienced frequent debates. They regularly challenged and recommended new ideas. We needed a team willing to offer advice and alternatives and that’s what number8 delivered.
I have worked with number8 for more than 4 years and the experience has been excellent. They provide very skilled resources that often exceed my expectations. Each one of their consultants understands the whole business & technical context, commits to the process while helping refine it, and delivers on time. Beyond staffing, number8 remains accountable for team performance and customer sentiment. I feel comfortable knowing that number8 is building a real business partnership with our organization.
