To build high-quality software products, you need a strong team of technology professionals. Unfortunately, with the tech talent shortage, this is easier said than done. For startups, this can be even more challenging because of limited resources. So no matter how great an idea might be, without the right people in your team, the digital revolution is at risk of coming to a grinding halt. To respond to the talent shortage, companies have been outsourcing their development needs both nearshore and offshore. But regardless of whether you’re building products in-house, outsourcing it to an established third-party provider, or working in (hybrid) augmented teams, you have to take some important steps to select the right people for the job.
