Building The Future of Freelance Software / slashdev.io
Why Remote Developers Work Best For Most Companies//
Working with freelance software developers gives you total flexibility with your project. This is great with entrepreneurs who need to move quickly and sometimes just want to build out a test to see if it works. Most often it is that there will be a period where heavy frontend, backend, or specialized support will be needed and by bringing on a freelancer you give yourself the ability to complete this project without the long-run risk of bringing on an employee that you do not have a clear position for.
Get Your Product To Market
Due to the speed at which freelance talent is accessible and the amount of work you can get done for your money, it makes a huge difference when getting your product to market on time. We have had the experience of building many products both for ourselves and others where freelance talent always played a critical role in getting the work done on time.
Build Your Team At The Right Pace
Everyone needs to get work done but we underestimate how careful we need to be when hiring full-time employees. This is one of the top reasons that companies fail, hiring too fast. We believe that each role needs to have a clear definition and bring long-term value to the core team. The problem is that many roles at a company today are going to be project-based or will not require a full-time commitment. This is where Freelance talent can help you. We actually always start projects off on a freelance basis, if it starts to grow into something significant that will stick around for the long run then we start to look for an expert to lead that project long-term.
It Works Great For Companies At All Stages
All companies can benefit from freelance talent, from large companies to early-stage startups. In fact, smaller companies who could probably benefit the most from working with freelance software developers are the least aware of this advantage. Every large company has already learned to master the global economy and often has offices around the world to help them leverage a global workforce. Still, there is much more that can be done to leverage freelance talent in an even better way.
