Today, some of the top priorities for organizations across the globe are digital diversification and business resilience. However, with the tech industry becoming increasingly saturated and software companies with innovative products and services mushrooming on every corner, this is easier said than done.
Businesses are constantly on the lookout for talented engineers with specialized skills to help them take their business to the next level and stand out from the crowd. But because of the massive global tech talent shortage, companies are left with mediocre developers who do not have the motivation or skillset to make a real difference.
Leveraging the dedicated team model and building a tech team offshore has grown in response to these challenges. But what does building a dedicated team mean for your business? What makes The Scalers’ model unique? Let’s explore…
What are the benefits of the dedicated team model?
Building a dedicated team offshore means setting up a fully integrated team of engineers in emerging tech hubs like India. Unlike outsourcing, where you work with random developers on a contract basis, offshoring allows you to work with a permanent workforce — a value-adding extension of your existing local team.
Today, hiring a dedicated tech team in the West means paying an absolute premium. Not just salaries but recruitment fees, office space, and employee-centric benefits too. When it all adds up, the numbers can be staggeringly high.
On the flipside, by building the same team offshore, you can reduce your overall operational costs by at least 40-50%. And that’s because the cost of living in countries like India, Ukraine, or The Philippines is significantly lower than in the West. This not only correlates with salaries but also all the extra costs of running a business.
However, the best part is that you gain unlimited access to an oasis of top tech talent — fully-trained engineers who will meet or even exceed all your requirements.
A glimpse into our dedicated team model
At The Scalers, we help you leverage world-class talent and scale your business. By using a unique model of talent sourcing, managed operations, and cultural alignment, we build scalable and result-driven tech teams for our partners in the heart of Bangalore, India.
Our dedicated team model is simple and transparent, enabling you to spend less time screening candidates and more time scaling the core competencies of your business. We build your team, set up your operations on the ground, and support you while you work directly with your team. It’s offshoring that works.
To ensure that we hire nothing but the best for your business, we’ve created our bulletproof 7-step recruitment process. Highly talented developers from India’s tech talent pool are put through rigorous assessment processes to analyze their technical and soft skills and cultural fit. Only the top 1% make the cut. And because this is your dedicated team, you do the final interview.
Acquiring office premises, legalities, paperwork, administration, and managing HR — we do it all. We also make sure to send you data-driven reports at frequent intervals and work with you to help you scale your team at speed. The sky’s the limit.
One of the many advantages of the dedicated team model is that, despite the geographical location, your offshore team is a 100% extension of your existing unit. And because they’re full-time employees committed to your business, they understand and contribute towards the vision and greater goals of your organisation.
The Scalers’ dedicated team model allows you to build a strong and unified team and ensures that your engineers are bought into your company’s culture. We also assign a dedicated Chief Happiness Officer who handles your team’s engagement on a day-to-day basis.
