Growth is all about speed and agility.

Quick and efficient product development is crucial if you want to outgun the competition and dominate your market. You also need to expand your team quickly to accommodate that growth.

Do you see the problem?

Acquiring the top tech talent in highly competitive markets often gets extremely expensive and challenging.

Tech talent availability is a major issue in North America and Europe. The average Time to Start is four to six months, so adding top-quality resources often gets prohibitively slow.

No wonder tech companies consider development outsourcing. For instance, Ukraine’s outsourcing market allows closing most tech positions twice as fast as in the US.

Offshore development - median time to start for senior developers

Also, offshore developers are generally half the cost of an in-house development team with the same skill set:

Offshore development - median salary for senior developers

However, these numbers won’t tell you the whole story.

The vendor controls the dedicated development team, not you. Lack of control from your side leads to some massive drawbacks:

  1. A lack advocates for your business goals on the vendor side who drive the rest of the team day in day out.
  2. High employee turnover rates on the vendor side (including key players).
  3. A lack of understanding of your business goals, values, and work culture.

These factors often result in low productivity and increase the chances of failure.

So very often you get unmotivated outsourced developers who come and go. They neither share your vision nor care about your business results, just follow a “sit back and chill” attitude when you’re in the midst of the action.

You wind up with long development cycles and a product that gets harder to maintain with every deploy.

Instead of saving time and money, you end up wasting both.

So we realized cost savings are meaningless if they come with the above-mentioned side effects.

Alternatives of offshore development outsourcing

Why BIT works?

Right at the hiring stage, we identify people with the right kind of mindset.

An offshore developer who is used to working in dedicated development teams in classic outsourcing companies in Europe, is not always suitable for your subsidiary.

We look for people with an “end-customer” orientation, entrepreneurial mindset, startup spirit, ambition, energy, and vision to dream big and offer more to achieve more.

That’s why we put so much emphasis on selecting the right people. We also foster the mindset shift to make every developer a crucial part of your organization.

BIT takes the stress out of product development…
bit by bit.

Focus more on other critical aspects of your growth strategy, while our experts help you eliminate technology bottlenecks and scale your technology capacity.

Here’s how BIT compares to opening an offshore subsidiary on your own (DIY approach) and outstaffing (classic outsourced software development):
