Hello, everyone

I am newbie in this forum, Its really nice to find a site that is junk free.

I've been working at Netsmartz since a long time now, I started my carrier as a programmer. Even though I did my English Honors from St. Stephens Delhi, I had keen interest in technical subjects, that is when I decided to be a programmer.

In starting I did some internships and then side by side did various online courses. I owe my technical career to the internet. I feel its my duty to contribute to the internet as my tribute.  
I have seen language shifts from java to android, php to python and excell to predictive analytics in the industry and somehow I've still managed
to keep up with the pace.

My goal is to learn as long as I can and share my learnings on such sites, and hopefully encourage more people to participate and grow.

It helps me in keeping myself up to date as well as help others in some or the other way.

Pleasure to be connected here. :)

Question: How to find the best dedicated developers and IT outsourcing companies?

Hi Aditi

Welcome to the forum!

I don't think this is an effective place to ask that question. It seems off-topic for the forum, as your question makes no mention of Scrum, or anything closely related to it.

If you can explain more about what you consider "best", and if that does relate to Scrum or agility, there's a better chance you will get an answer that helps you.

Hi Simon, thanks for pointing out the mistake on my part. As I said before, I am a newbie into this forum, so I may miss the real thing to do here.

Your reply helped. I work on Outsourced Projects and aware of the fact that how beneficial it is to use SCRUM Framework for implementation of Agile Development.

I just wanted to know top companies that provides a dedicated remote team for outsourced projects related to development and marketing. I want to learn how those dedicated teams are controlled and how useful it is for clients to work with such an outsourcing model.

Anyways, thanks Simon for responding and looking forward for some really great advice.

Why not start by clarifying:

- what you think the term "remote team" means

- what it means, in your view, for a team to be "dedicated"

- why you believe teams align to "projects"

- why you believe dedicated teams are "controlled"

- why you understand the "outsourcing" issue demands special consideration

Hi Aditi,

Sites like Clutch and Goodfirms can help you. There you can find many companies and reviews from their clients. All reviews are checked so you can trust them. 

You can find different articles as well ("Top 5/10/50... "). For example https://www.n-ix.com/10-trusted-software-development-outsourcing-companies-europe/

Also if a company use the most efficient practices like Scrum/Agile it's definitely a good choice.

As I understand Ian in his answer try to lever the motivations behind your question. Why outsourcing ? Why remote ? Why controlled ? It is amazing for me to apply coaching for every question. However sometimes it is annoying. Let me add more analysis of your needs.

You know, scrum methodology hates controlling. The team should be self-organized and every team member should be self-organized. It is hard, because it requires discipline. 

What I have understood from your question is that you would like to work remotely e.g. from home. You are looking for companies which offer such work. I concluded this from the fact that you stress that you owe your career to Internet. On the other hand there is word "Delhi" in your question, from which we can conclude that you live in India. Therefore maybe you are looking for work in global company like SAP which has development branch in India.

Help in finding a job is hard topic, because it requires knowledge of local market which we don't know (at least I don't know). I work for 20 years in one company. Two days ago I started to think about moving from R&D to consulting !

I just wanted to know top companies that provides a dedicated remote team for outsourced projects related to development and marketing. I want to learn how those dedicated teams are controlled and how useful it is for clients to work with such an outsourcing model.

One thing I haven't seen mentioned yet is that scrum really benefits a lot from having localized teams, because good scrum (and good agile) benefits from frequent communication, information radiators, and the like.  While it's not a hard requirement, remote teams introduce lots of new problems to solve with communication that aren't a big issue with co-located teams.  In the context of Scrum, have you considered the benefits of hiring or outsourcing locally?

Hi Aditi, 

If you want to find outsourced software development company, I think the best idea would be to check such high-authority platforms like Upwork, Clutch, GoodFirms like someone on here has already suggested. That way, you can check a portfolio, reviews, and ratings and make the decision based on that information. There are also guides that provide a list of software outsourcing development companies and let you choose from it. Recently I found such an article (this one - https://www.cleveroad.com/blog/outsourcing-software-development-companies ) and it is really informative, might help you as well.

I'm interested in outsourcing pricing models. Could anyone name me outsourcing pricing models?


12:01 pm October 14, 2019

to be honest, I'm interested in pricing models in IT outsourcing as I would like to run my own project


11:46 am November 19, 2019

Victor, here I found an article answering your question, but I'm sure you could do this yourself :)

Warm greetings Atidi, 

You can easily get a list of top software outsourcing companies by using Clutch, Goodfirms or DesignRush but in order to choose the right one, I suggest you some points to clarify about your "selected" vendors: 

  1. Check out how many years the company works in the industry and if it's growing over the time.
  2. Choose the supplier who's got plenty of projects of your desired area in its portfolio.
  3. Check if you can find any of its clients who are known for their great product and high-quality services. 
  4. Get more insights about it by searching reviews on Google, review sites and so on. 
  5. Ask for security and money guarantees to ensure you have all agreements before signing the contract. 
  6. Also pay attention to PRD, FSD and other strict agreements 
  7. Ask for good project management and working conditions including project manager, transparent environment, time-zone adaptation, high-class infrastructure and no-barrier languages.  
  8. Do your budget well as there're different rates for outsourcing developers in different countries, also find out when and how you should pay for the company. 

Hope it can help :),

The main thing is to have a good team at work. I work in GTM, and for me this is the best company.


02:34 pm February 6, 2020

Oh, for me it is really hard question. Nowadays there are so many outsourcing companies and dedicated development teams that is really hard to understand which are the best. I think you should make something like list of criteria about what is your priority while choosing such company. 


02:17 pm October 19, 2020

It's a really good question.
There are important things you should pay attention to - https://blackthorn-vision.com/blog/what-excellent-client-service-outsourcing.

Of course, such web platforms like Clutch.co could be helpful to make the right choice of IT outsource provider according to your criteria.

man this really good information!


04:35 am April 14, 2021

Hello Aditi, you can easily check out the top IT companies on sites like businesslist and goodfirm, but you also need to make your own research to important notes in identifying the perfect company. First, check the company’s profile in Google and collect different reviews and insights. Second, go directly to their website and check out their overall IT services and look out for their achievements/projects done. And the last thing to consider is the company culture, you can see this mostly through their social media accounts. Take note of this, google knows if a company is excellent in OBP IT solutions. hope this helps!

Hey guys. I think Olivia has proposed the most right and strategic approach. I would like to add one more step to go even further - to speak with the representative of a potential company. To check their attitude to a new client, whether they pay attention to prospects and even to know if there are some consultation services for ones who hesitate to outsource. We have got some great tips about outsourcing. How to hire developers in Ukraine to be exact. You can check just for informational purpose. 


11:38 am April 22, 2021

Actually, when choosing the IT company, the most important, as for me, is the company portfolio. And paying attention on this point, I can recommend ScienceSoft, ITRex, Intellectsoft


11:35 am October 28, 2021

I would suggest such an approach: when you have a list of companies, check them by next aspects:

  • their Clutch profile, rating, reviews; also take a peak on GoodFirms, maybe they are also there;
  • check their website for portfolio and cases;
  • check social media;
  • initiate the first contact and observe how they communicate;
  • ask what cooperation models they offer and if they try to offer the most suitable cooperation model for you or just offer something only them will benefit;
  • if you want, you may also try to contact previous clients of the company personally and ask them for a genuine feedback.

Thanks for helping with this question. I also have the same situation!


01:30 pm December 27, 2021

In order to get the best software development team you need to make sure they understand the products you're developing. You need to make sure they can use the software and support it. Then, they need to know how to communicate with the stakeholders. They should be able to easily understand how to use the product. They should be able to communicate with the people who will use the software. They should be able to do everything that is expected of them. Another thing to keep in mind when it comes to software development is the importance of communication. It's important to be able to communicate effectively with other people and other departments. You should be able to work well with a team of people. Whether you're working in an office or on your own, you need to be able to communicate with the team in a professional manner. You should also be able to prioritize your tasks and make sure you're not distracted by other people's needs. Besides implementing software solutions, a good software development team should also be able to understand the business needs of the target users. You should be able to communicate well with the people who will use the product. Your team should have a good understanding of your goals. If you don't know what you want to achieve with your software, you'll need to hire a team that understands your goals and can communicate well with clients.
