What is staff augmentation service?

IT staff augmentation services is a staffing strategy that allows companies to hire tech talent externally without making them permanently part of their in house team. This is a strategy that allows you to fill roles in projects on a contract basis.

  • As an IT staff augmentation vendor, we help you fill technical roles that may be missing in your team.
  • Our software engineers can join your existing staff to complete various projects.
  • Once you choose an augmented staff member or team, they will learn and become a part of your company culture.
  • They will follow any procedures, communication, and organization guidelines.

If you are in need of an IT specialist, you can hire one from us. To start this process, you need to evaluate your current team and decide what skills you are missing, in order to complete your project. Once you have completed this evaluation, you can hire one or more of our talented developers to fill those roles.

What is NOT augmented team service?

The term “augmented team service” is often used to describe the process of bringing external resources into an organization and assigning them to work on a specific project. For example, a tech company might hire a couple additional developers to help in its web development to speed up the process.

 

Augmentation services are typically mixed up with other related terms such as outsourcing services, offshoring, near shoring etc. Let us explain how some of them are related while others are not.

Terms such as body leasing and out staffing are closely related to staff augmentation, and most of the time can be used interchangeably. Now, terms such as near shoring and offshoring can be used to described to either staff augmentation or outsourcing. However, it is key to remember that staff augmentation and outsourcing are two completely different terms and services.

What model works for you?

Staff enhancement & similar services

In the realm of staff enhancement, there are similar services that in many cases are used interchangeably, but not all of them mean the same thing. When looking at staff augmentation, outsourcing, etc. they each are their own unique process and service. Below, we will explore how they are similar and how they are different.

Staff augmentation vs body leasing vs outstaffing

Staff augmentation services and body leasing are typically used interchangeably because they do mean the same thing. The use of either of these terms depends on the region you are from and the industry. Outstaffing is another term that is synonymous with staff augmentation services.

All three of these terms describe the same transaction. This is the process where an IT company hires external developers in addition to their in house team. This process allows you to hire a software development team on a contract basis.

Staff augmentation vs outsourcing

So you may be wondering what the difference is between staff augmentation and outsourcing, let us explain. Generally speaking, staff augmentation is the ability to hire a single or multiple IT developers to join your team for a period of time in order to complete a specific project.

While, outsourcing when it comes to the IT industry, is usually hiring a whole company to do all the work.

Outsourcing refers to the practice of using a third-party contractor or vendor to perform a job that would normally be performed by an employee in-house.

  • With this kind of arrangement, the company does not have to worry about hiring, training and supervising the contractor themselves.
  • Outsourcing typically takes on a project from start to finish.
  • This can be particularly beneficial for smaller companies that do not have the luxury of having offices in multiple locations or having enough staff members to cover all of their projects themselves.

On the other hand, when you co-operate on a staff augmentation basis, you typically have your own employees working alongside one or a few of our developers.

Staff augmentation vs offshoring & near shoring? 

Offshoring and nearshore are different staff augmentation models, with one primary difference. Offshoring and near shoring are often used to determine geographical location. Typically, near shoring is to describe countries that are in proximity to your location. So for example, if you are a company based in Germany, you may choose staff augmentation services from Poland as a form of near shoring.

Now, offshoring would be an American company selecting Poland for their IT staff augmentation services. The location and the time difference is significant.

You may find that offshoring and near shoring tend to be associated with typical outsourcing. In contrast with outsourcing and offshoring, augmented team services are companies that provide additional personnel in order to support internal teams with tasks that they cannot complete due to resource limitations. Examples of augmented team service providers include contractors, consultants, co-ops, temporary based employees, interns, or volunteers etc.

skill gap

Skill gap

So, the best way to identify the skills gap in your company is to perform an audit. Based on this skills audit, you can determine which skills you are missing and whether you need them for short term projects or long term projects. You may also come to the conclusion that certain skills are needed indefinitely, beyond the scope of a certain project. However, those that are needed within a certain project, can be filled using staff augmentation services.

Bridge to hire

You need software engineers for short-term projects while recruiting permanent personnel. You can hire our remote developers for a minimum of 3 months on a temporary basis while trying to recruit someone for a permanent role. Hiring temporary workers while you proceed with traditional recruitment can help you keep projects going and meet your deadlines. You do not have to worry about financial losses, due to being short-staffed.

Geographical limitations

No geographical limitations

Typically, when we look to hire someone permanently to our local team, we are limited in terms of location.

Short term staff augmentation

Short term body leasing is usually when you are looking to fill a position for a few weeks or a couple of months. This is typically a project that does not require more than 4 to 6 months of work.

Some common situations where your business may require short term body leasing:

Specfic skills

Specific Skills

You have one specific project in mind, that requires a specific skill set in order to complete the task. Furthermore, it is unlikely, that you will need these skills in other projects.

Business growth

Busy Season

Perhaps, your business is having a busy season, and you just need more employees for the time being to complete the work. For example, you know that your company has the most work in May, June, and July. You are always short-staffed during this time. You may want to consider a short term body leasing to fulfill that temporary shortage and busy period.

Short staffed

Short Staffed

Short term staff augmentation is also a great option if your employee is on vacation, sick leave or maternity leave. This is an excellent option to fill that gap and have your project completed on time.

IT TALENT SOLUTIONS

Long term staff augmentation

Long term staff augmentation is, generally, any project that requires more than 6 months work. Here at Swyply we prefer long term projects because our developers can get to know the team and procedures more closely.

Long term IT staff augmentation is a great option when:

Key roles

Key Roles

The role you are looking for, is very specific and niche, that a regular recruitment process would take for too long. Long term body leasing is an excellent solution when you have an urgent matter and are missing bodies to fill key roles.

Maintain business growth

Business Growth

When you have an employee shortage, that prevents you from growing your business and proceeding with various projects. Our long term staff augmentation can provide you with IT specialists, who can work on multiple projects.

Affordable hiring rates

Body leasing & staff augmentation model

What does hiring our IT team & tech talent look like?

The process of hiring our highly qualified and talented team of IT specialists is similar to the team augmentation model. Based on this staff augmentation model, we help fill your staffing needs. Our co-operation & staff augmentation process looks like this:

1 First

Tell us what skills you need to extend your team

The first thing you want to do is create an evaluation to determine what IT skills you are missing in your current team. Once you have this information.

You reach out to us with information about what type of It specialist or developer you need. If you are unsure of the exact role, provide us with a description of the skills that you are looking for. Provide us, with the skill set that you require, we can help you narrow it done.

2 Second

The search for your developers begins

Based on that skill set, we will look, within our team of developers, for people who match these needs. Furthermore, we will present your project to matching IT candidates, to see who is available to take on such a task.

3 Third

Select candidates based on Blind CVs

Based on the information we received from you, we will provide you a short list of candidates. For each candidate, you will receive a blind CV, to review. Based on these blind CV’s, pick your top choices and get back to us with the experts of your choosing.

4 Fourth

Interview the developers who might be a great fit

Based on your choices, we will schedule interviews for you and candidates to meet via video chat. You will carry out interviews with the IT specialists you have selected. After the video chat, if you require for our developer to carry out some code test, we are more than happy to facilitate that for you. If not, you tell us which developer, you would like to co-operate with for your project.

5 Fifth

Finalize the contract and hire Swyply developers

At this stage, you get to select the Swyply developers that are right for you. Then we finalize the contract that has the agreed upon start date, the duration of the project and date of completion.

6 Sixth

Swyply developer works on your project

During this phase, our Swyply developer works on your project. You determine the methods of communication, organization, and workload. Our developer is available to you exclusively for the duration of the contract.

7

Monthly satisfaction update

Every month, we reach out to you, to make sure that everything is okay when it comes to our cooperation. We inquire whether you have additional needs or requirements for your software projects.

8

Ability to extend the contract

A month before the end of the cooperation resulting from the contract, we will reach out to you, to see if you want to extend the contract or has the project come to a close.

Carry out your project successfully

What challenges does IT staff augmentation solve?

Let’s be honest, running a business comes with its unique set of challenges and some of them do not always have simple solutions. However, IT staff augmentation can help you solve a heap of challenges that you may currently be facing in one or more of your projects.

Need an expert?

You are struggling to find quality resources

In the IT industry, the struggle to find quality resources is usually associated with not finding the right level developer for the job. While the market is saturated with IT talent, it can be difficult to find the right match.

This struggle can also be amplified if you are not sure what you are looking for when it comes to staffing. However, we can help you narrow down the skills gap to help you find the right one.

Traditional hiring model

Recruitment process is long and expensive

Traditional recruitment process is time-consuming and can be expensive. When it comes to recruitment, depending on the route you want to take, you may find that paying an HR agency to place a job ad is expensive and can break the bank. Also, the overall process requires time that you may not have for various reasons.

  • Once, the job offer is available you have to wait a certain time period for CV’s to fly in and vet each of them to make sure that they are right fit.
  • After that you need to spend time interviewing candidates and running skill tests, which is stressful.
  • Then you have take into account the typical one month notice period.

So, if you are lucky the traditional route can take around two months before you find an adequate candidate.

When you take advantage of IT staff augmentation services, you can have a remote developer ready to go within a few days or a week’s time. The vetting process is significantly shorter and easier.

Not the perfect match

Your new hire is a poor fit

There is nothing worse than hiring someone, investing money and time only to find out they are the right fit for your in house team.

They could be a poor fit for various reasons:

  • cultural
  • skill level
  • soft skills

You may also find yourself, in a situation, where you have an ongoing project, and you know that this new hire will not make his or her deadline.

Now you have to make the choice to either let them go and start recruitment all over again, or keep them and try to make it work. This is brutal and can cost your company a lot of money.

When you choose our IT staff augmentation services, we give you a two-week trial period. During this time, you have a few options if you are dissatisfied with the developer:

  • ask us to switch the team member
  • you can also decide that you want to back out of our arrangement and try another solution.
Money, money, money

Unemployment costs

When you have ongoing full time employees, you need an HR manager who look after various matters, one of which includes unemployment costs etc. This can be inconvenient and expensive.

When you decide to partner with our staff augmentation agency, when you complete a project or no longer need one of our IT specialists, the contract is done. You do not have to fit the bill for any outstanding costs.

There goes the deadline…

Cannot complete projects to meet deadlines with your current in house team

You may have an in house team that is too small to be able to complete the current load of projects to meet your deadlines. Hiring someone using team augmentation services can help you better distribute the work load and meet your deadlines.

Unhappy customers, long lead times etc.

Your business is not scaling fast enough to meet customer demands

Many software development companies are looking to grow quickly due to customer demands. This can be tough to do when you lack the number of working hands to provide customer satisfaction. You can add an extended team to complete more projects and in turn grow your business faster.

Our guarantee

The developer doesn’t fit your project after 2 weeks? You won’t pay a cent!

Our It staff augmentation services gives you the opportunity to pick a remote developer or an entire remote development team with a two-week trial period.

During this trial period, if, for whatever reason, one of our IT specialists, is not the right fit, you have two options. Firstly, we can exchange this temporary staffer for another one. Secondly, we can finish our cooperation, and we will NOT send you invoice for this two-week period.

We try to ensure that the extended team member will be the right fit for your existing in house team. We realize blending external resources with your onsite team can present its own set of challenges, in terms of company culture, skills, communication etc. This way, we provide ongoing support and work with you to provide you with an adequate solution.

Frequently asked questions about staff augmentation

Check out some answers to your most frequenly asked questions about IT staff augmentation services:

Learn More

Our developers work strictly in a no-office model 👩‍💻 and therefore, are not able to join your team at the office. Moreover, working remotely has become a standard in the IT industry.

Our remote developers use tools 💻 such as Slack, Google Meets, Zoom, Loom, etc. to make working online easy. We encourage taking full advantage of electronic communication, video chats etc. To make your cooperation 🤝 easier and smooth sailing.

We can provide you with developers to extend your team in a flash ⚡. We can provide you with Blind CVs of potential candidates within 2 or 3 business days. On the third or fourth day, you can be interviewing them and by the end of the week, they may be joining your team. It’s that fast 🚀 and that easy.

We can have a developer ready to go and join your team within one week 📅. However, in some scenarios it may take up to 30 days, but these are extreme circumstances where our developers need to finish up previous projects.

The rate to hire one of our developers on augmented staffing basis varies on the type of expert and seniority level. Our hourly rates range from $30 to $100 per hour 💰. So for example, $30 per hour is for a developer that is at the junior level, whereas, $100 per hour would get you a developer who has high seniority. This would be a developer 👩‍💻 that specializes in a technology that is in high demand on the market, but is short in supply.

At the beginning of our cooperation, we establish a daily rate 💰 for your chosen developer or development team. At the end of each month, we add up the number of days 📆 that a developer spends working on your project. Based on these calculations, we send an invoice out at the end of the month.
