Our Nearshore Case Studies
Our IT recruitment team carries out a thorough recruitment process, which is based on a large, international pool of candidates and extensive interviews, to determine the skills of the candidates, from know-how to soft and hard skills.
Once a shortlist is established, clients are involved in the process to determine whether our IT professionals and developers have the skills and expertise they require. That’s when the final selection occurs, and our IT experts are assigned to the clients’ project.
This process depends on the technology required, team size, level of expertise needed, among other factors. However, it should take us, on average, 15 to 30 days to assemble your team.
Nearshore can be applied to any business, regardless of its size. We focus on providing our customers the best solution that suits each project needs.
We recommend that the startup team should have a 2 - 4 weeks training on-site, which should be agreed and defined with the client.
For the team members that will join the project later, the on-site training can be shorted, but we recommend at least 1 week so that they can know all the key contacts and relevant stakeholders.
That’s no problem at all. We understand that projects have different needs at different times, so the configuration of our team can be quickly and easily adjusted at any stage of the process.
