It takes 3 months to actually fill in your open dev positions. But should it?

Whether or not an organization is considered a technology company, IT positions are absolutely necessary for business survival. In other words, digital transformation has now turned pretty much every company into a tech one.

As of August 2021, there are over 105K software developer positions in the US labor market only. The typical dev hiring turnaround now is ~ 3 months - IT skills are in high demand yet remarkably difficult to find.

Pandemic lockdowns forced many companies to move their business online, creating the highest demand for IT resources as it has never been before. Thus the competition for local talent became tough. To attract the right minds, you should know lots of tricks about the job market, how to conduct screening and technical interviews. The whole process becomes time-consuming and requires appropriate preparation. 

But how do you make sure you hire experts in your specific niche when you have to scale projects and don’t have months for finding and pre-screening candidates?

The answer is that with the local supply of tech professionals being short, look to the east and opt for IT offshore talent. Offshore provides enterprises and global tech companies with such benefits as:

  • faster time-to-hire
  • cost-effectiveness
  • access to the additional talent pool
  • flexible project scaling

A growing number of companies (such as Microsoft, Lebara, Google, Skype, Slack, and others) choose to hire software developers in Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, and other Eastern European countries. 

Partnering with a recruitment agency is often preferred as local recruiters should know the details of the talent pool you’re interested in and will therefore provide a faster and smoother recruitment process. With this approach you keep managing a dev team yourself and stay in charge of product development.
