We talked so much about outstaffing that it was time to uncover the nuances of its subspecies with unique functionality – it outstaffing. Technically, it is no different from other activities, but, at least in Ukraine, it is almost more popular. It is important to distinguish between the concept of IT outsourcing, where the provider provides services, performing tasks in his office, and IT outstaffing, where the intermediary “leases”, arranges for the project work for the client of its performers.
Outstaff developers do the same as regular employees. The customer does not take responsibility for micromanagement and the solution of labor, tax issues. In the Ukrainian it-labor market, the number of Middle + vacancies significantly exceeds the number of relevant candidates, which is why they dictate the working conditions. For employers, it becomes a problem to find a competent employee and keep him on the staff. It is even more difficult to attract a high-quality, high-level contractor to the project work, while leaving the opportunity to really influence his schedule / task performance. IT outstaffers come to the rescue.
What IT outstaffing saves from:
The team of the IT outstaffing provider can work with specialists of any level and specialization: from Junior to Senior + developer, QA, PM, DevOps, UX / UI designer, product marketer, copywriter, etc.
As a rule, the monitoring of tasks is carried out in a format convenient for the client. In the case of remote cooperation, the performers are controlled through Jira, Teamwork or any other tracking system. If it’s convenient, then every week begins with planning the team’s work to avoid “downtime”.
Payment can be either a subscription or a project – as agreed by the customer and the contractor. When choosing a contractor, we recommend clarifying his specialization and ordering a portfolio so as not to run into scammers.
In addition, do not forget that in Ukraine, only a resident outstaffer can conduct activities that are legal in terms of labor legislation.
