Your Options When Going Global – From Marketplaces To Doing It Yourself//
Your options today when it comes to global talent are better than they have ever been. Today you can work with gig platforms, freelance platforms, modern services, traditional outsourcing, or even hire talent yourself.
Gig platforms are great for small jobs or testing something new. You can people who are highly skilled at specific roles that will be able to produce X for you in a matter of days.
Freelance platforms offer many of the gig-style jobs that you will find on a gig platform but also offer professionals with skills for more long-term engagements. These platforms are great for finding specialists in specific areas who can help you how to build out your strategy there. We often use these types of platforms for marketing projects and gaining expertise in areas we have not worked in before.
Modern services like slashdev.io are starting to emerge and take a place in the market. These services are emerging due to the downsides of the existing solutions and the need for more vetted and handpicked freelance talent.
Services like ours offer more of a partnership in finding the best global talent. We specialize in finding the best of the best and charge you a small % of the salary of the employee you hire. Our incentives are completely aligned to give you the best possible talent for the long run.
Outsourcing companies are an old player that is starting to have a harder time fitting into today’s world. These types of companies usually serve larger companies and help them to build outsourced teams. These teams work for the outsourcing companies at their office and function somewhat like an agency but also offer dedicated staffing models.
Finally, you can always go the route of trying to hire and manage remote teams yourself. This is the hardest route and there are few benefits if this is not your core business. You need to find the best ways to attract, screen, and hire developers yourself. Personally, we love this so that is why we started a company doing it. We have countless methods to generate applicants and attract them to apply, from this excellent pool we screen for the very best. Building a process like this takes years of refinement. Something most entrepreneurs should not do.
