Staff Augmentation Is number8’s Most Popular Engagement
number8 consultants work under our client’s direction. Our candidates are always qualified and selected by our clients before they are hired on to their team. Our clients typically use the same process they use when hiring an internal candidate to qualify a number8 candidate. For every new engagement, number8 provides a project manager. The project manager ensures the onboarding process is seamless and all deliverables are met by the consultant.
In addition to the project manager, number8 provides clients with an account manager and a technical account manager. The account manager speaks directly with the client, offering support and guidance to make the most of their nearshore experience. They will gather ongoing feedback and always be available to address any concerns a client may have.The technical account manager is a senior number8 developer that is able to meet one-on-one with number8 consultants to provide any technical advice and/or additional problem solving the engagement may require.
Custom Engagement Models are Available to Address Your Company’s Unique Needs
Although Staff Augmentation is our most popular engagement, number8 can easily customize a unique solution for your company. We bill hourly and aim to place our consultants on dedicated, long-term engagements. Our average length of engagement for a number8 consultant is over a year, however we have plenty of consultants that have been on the same engagement for 5+ years.
Take the readiness assessment to get started with number8.
There are technical practices we’ve found dramatically increase our consultant’s ability to produce significant contributions to our client teams. In this 5 minute assessment, we’ll ask you about your release schedule, CI/CD and development practices and let you know if you’ve removed the common barriers to hiring a nearshore consultant.
It is important to note that if none or only a few of these practices are in place that it does not mean that the engagement will struggle. This simply means that more focus upfront will be needed to ensure that both the client and number8 consultant will be aligned on where we can help one another succeed.
