hey, I'm starting a new thing and looking to better understand the process, perks, and pains of nearshoring/offshoring US-based software dev agencies encounter.
would help with my research by sharing your experience or recommending the right person?
the ideal agency should be around 40 employees+
Thank you for your question. Many software development agencies are seeking owners/tech leaders to help them grow their businesses. Tech leaders should have a strong understanding of the latest software development technologies, and be able to effectively communicate with clients and team members. In addition, they should be able to lead and manage a team of developers.
I have a team of 40+ employees and can help you. For more information, you can book a call.
There are numerous software services companies/provides those help in building PoC’s , prototypes, Products such as making MVP to recurrent releases. To provide such services one needs to have few key elements e.g. (a) engagement model i.e., fixed cost, T&M basis (b) software development process to follow i.e., agile i.e., capturing requirements, breaking into outputs & tasks (c) Tracking tools and delivery process (e) more importantly the Team i.e., the technical ability to provide the services. Also, the software service providers need to have the contingency plans e.g., solving high attrition, building bench strength, building excellency in the new technological areas/domains i.e., making the team ready for next set.
I have been leading the software services for last 18+ years in many companies and have started our start-up recently. We are now almost 16+ employees, which currently not matching your requirement of your research, but could I be useful if needed.
I help early stage startups with these kinds of decisions, as well as how to get the product designed, built & launched (see https://softwarestartupcoach.com/).
I've done this with many startups and help in various different ways depending on your needs (e.g. a training course/program, ad-hoc advising, an academy for founders etc.).
The first thing I would say is please don't just approach development providers (wherever they are) until you have done your preparation (there's a lot here so best to call me to discuss in detail).
In summary, understand your business and technology requirements first.
I look forward to speaking & helping you progress.
