Building a team of engineers for your growing business is one of the most challenging steps. Finding top-of-the-class software engineers to help build your product is expensive, time-consuming, and never a walk in the park. Like Rome, it doesn’t happen overnight. After getting funded, it’s essential to build a stellar engineering team with the right engineering structure and workflow.
You probably have heard software developers throw in jargon terms like onshore, offshore, and nearshore. While it’s tempting to equate the terms to shores and beaches, they all are different and have a meaning in the IT field. The “shore” phrase is associated with outsourcing software development to companies abroad.
Nearshore outsourcing comes with tons of advantages. It provides hard-to-find skills and allows you to upscale or downscale with ease. Besides, you can easily collaborate and communicate with your nearshore partner without the challenges of time-zone differences, language barrier, or cultural inconsistencies.
