What engagement model should you prefer to hire a developer?

When hiring developers, you need to assess what engagement models would you like to work on with them. Do you want to hire developers on a project basis, create a dedicated remote team or just add them to your existing in-house team?

Here’s a deep dive into all the engagement models so that you can make your pick wisely:

  • Dedicated Teams: Dedicated teams are multidisciplinary remote teams that resemble your in-house team but don’t work on-site. Dedicated teams are built of all the possible developers, architects, engineers and analysts you’ll need to bring your projects to fruition. They work with you for the long term, reporting every daily activity to you and keeping you in the loop.

Where to look for developers?

  • Outsourcing Vendors: The best way to hire developers is by outsourcing them through a third-party vendor. An outsourcing company allows you to onboard the best talent at minimal costs without wasting time. All you need to do is set the deadlines, the number of deliverables and the type of developer you need and you’re all set.


Hiring a remote developer can be a tricky business but if you nail the search process, skimming through the available candidates would be a piece of cake. You can always steer away from the expected normal and hire dedicated remote developers if you don’t want to get your hands dirty in the hiring and recruiting process. Outsourcing will not only save you time but also money all the while onboarding great talent.
