Businesses across the globe are looking to transform, fast. The digital diversification needed for genuine resilience has been highlighted by the pandemic of the past 12 months.
The opening months of 2021 don’t exactly look a world away from what we’ve had in 2020, but one thing has changed for certain: the perception people have of building global development teams to help their business achieve strategic priorities. Offshore software development has grown in response to these challenges, but a lot of businesses still don’t really know whether it’s a solution for them.

We get lots of people asking us questions about offshoring: how it works, who’s it for, what are the benefits. So, we decided to put everything together into a definitive 101 guide. Say hello to Understanding Offshore Development. If you want to know more, then you’re in the right place. Let’s look a little more closely…
How do The Scalers build offshore teams?
Everything boils down to our unique approach that’s centered around our dedicated development team model. It encompasses hiring, onboarding, cultural alignment, managed administration and operations, as well as lightning-speed scaling. All the teams we build are powered by this model and it’s what separates us from the rest of the pack.
Our dedicated development team model playbook
Using our 7-step recruitment process, we source highly talented developers from a pool of India’s most skilled engineers based on your requirements. We make first contact and put them through a rigorous assessment process, leaving only the top 1%. Unlike outsourcing, the developers are handpicked by your internal hiring team. While we do the shortlisting, you do the final interview. You get to ensure cultural fit and they get a professional structure and a respected brand to commit their work to.
Offshoring used to be about finding a price you couldn’t get at home; today it’s about finding the skills and people you can’t get at home
‘We’ve got our hands on, so you can take yours off’
Your managers have total control over the day-to-day structure and operation of the team. However, all administrative tasks such as payroll, office management, and HR are handled by us — leaving you to focus on scaling your business. And that’s not all — you get a high-tech, high-spec office space to call your own with security protocols that mirror the ones you have at home.
‘Welcome to a world of limitless growth’
Our dedicated development team model ensures rapid growth. Once your developers have been onboarded and are ready to go, and once your admin and operations are being fully managed, your team can get to work on new products and services for your customers — at speed!
It’s all about culture
Your remote engineering team is a 100% fully dedicated extension of the existing unit — giving the managerial team at HQ total control over training and development — fostering a togetherness across the whole development department, irrespective of geographical location . A strong and unified team culture helps your business achieve its objectives. Fully dedicated employees think about your product and services with a long-term perspective, contributing ideas with an aim to add value to your organisation.
Our dedicated development team model promotes a strong and unified team culture — with your company DNA instilled throughout. It’s a genuine extension of your existing team, you work with them the same as you do with your developers at home — they’re totally authentic colleagues, not outside help.
