What is IT Staff Augmentation?
number8’s staff aug model begins with understanding the unique goals of our clients, only then are we able to custom-recruit the exceptional, remote talent that organizations need to get more done. In order to stand behind every candidate we recommend, our consultants are extensively vetted through questionnaires, live-coding challenges, personality assessments, and video conference interviews with senior number8 management.
The biggest advantage of this model when compared to traditional outsourcing is that our clients maintain control of their teams and budget by simply supplementing them with the IT and engineering skills they need at the agreed-upon hourly rate per developer.
The Benefits of Augmenting Development Teams
This combination guarantees access to a limitless talent pool of highly specialized IT professionals that work on your schedule alongside your internal development teams. When you limit your recruitment to a specific area, it can be almost impossible to find ideal candidates. number8 provides your organization access to exceptional talent throughout all of Central and South America, including highy technical countries like Costa Rica. The added benefit of nearshore ensures all-day collaboration. With traditional offshore outsourcing, it can sometimes take hours to receive communication from your remote development teams.
Nearshore staff aug also means lower development costs with rates 40% lower than remote developers in the U.S. We also save our clients the time and resources they'd normally need to invest in order to recruit top local talent. Lastly, the longer you work with an experienced team augmentation partner, the simpler it becomes for them to learn about your preferences and teams guaranteeing candidate approval processes and onboarding move quicker with each new hire.
