Nearshore Software Development Services

Is it possible for my nearshore team to come to the United States?

Absolutely! Our clients often bring the one or more of their new team members to the United States for a week or two at the beginning of the software development project. Following the initial project kick-off meeting, many clients like to bring their consultants up for visits periodically. Having the nearshore software development team work alongside their U.S. teammates really enhances the team dynamic. We also encourage you to bring your software development team to our nearshore software development location in Costa Rica!

How long does it take to recruit, hire and onboard a nearshore consultant?

With our huge talent pool and our team of experienced recruiters, rapidly finding individuals with difficult-to-source skill sets is one of the things we do best. Oftentimes, we can start sending developer profiles on the very same day we're contacted. Hiring can take between zero and thirty days depending on the individual and the niche we're trying to fill, but it's almost always less than two weeks for common skill sets. We make onboarding extremely simple and provide an engagement manager that does the heavy lifting at no additional charge to you. Our goal is to have your consultants working tickets on their first day! Contact us today to begin the search for your number8.

What do you use for ticketing, source control, and communication?

Good communication, ticketing, and source control are at the heart of what makes our nearshore software development outsourcing services so successful. We are very oriented towards agile programming and scrum, so we are big fans of using Jira to manage work assignments, follow team progress, organize issues and plan projects. We have experience using Trello, Rally, and VersionOne, but these days Jira seems to be everyone’s favorite project management tracking software. For source control, we typically use TFS (Microsoft’s Team Foundation Server) or Git.

Can I expect high employee retention from number8?

Our employee retention is significantly above industry average, over 70% of our consultants have been with number8 for a year or more.

You can expect a number8 to be excited about using new technologies and working on cutting-edge products. They are great collaborators and are highly motivated to do things right the first time around.

Technical Staffing

How do you recruit the best technical talent?

We’ve been in the business of technical recruiting for over 19 years. During this time, we’ve refined our process to ensure that we recruit and attract people with the highest level of technical skills. Our recruiters have a deep understanding of technology, software development, and the skills which they are seeking. And they also look for candidates who exhibit excellent business acumen and a strong work ethic.

What is your screening and recruitment process for candidates?

Our recruitment process starts with a short assessment which includes a collection of multiple choice questions that range from theoretical to programming logic questions. After that is completed, candidates must complete a live assessment where they are required to problem solve in front of some of our most senior engineers. We expect elite problem solving abilities, a robust architecture, highly maintainable code, a mastery of design patterns, consistent naming conventions, time management and professionalism. After both assessments are completed, candidates are required to complete a personality assessment, which helps us to ensure that our clients are recommended consultants who really fit their teams - technically, culturally, and personally. Finally, before our candidates ever speak to a client, they are assessed by number8 senior management to ensure that they have the communication skills necessary to be sucessful remotely. In addition to this process, we conduct background checks on all number8 consultants to ensure we are only working with people who share our values of professionalism and integrity.

Do you do project work?

Yes, although we prefer long term engagements and business partnerships, we do some kinds of project work. Contact us for more information and details.

What is the difference between staff augmentation and development outsourcing?

Staff augmentation and development outsourcing are both services number8 provides. Staff augmentation is our preferred model, and is normally the way we provide the absolute best service and value to our clients. In a staff augmentation model, we add number8 consultants to a clients' existing development teams. The more included in every aspect of a client's process our consultants can be, the more successful the engagement. Under a development outsourcing model, we develop a client's application in-house, with the role of Product Owner being fulfilled by the client. This model can be ideal for smaller companies or even for new projects at larger companies where an existing team is non-existent.
