You’re just desperate for the best possible outcome with your IT projects, yet you don’t even have a clue about where to find the expert developers. “The good news is that it’s so easy! In fact, it can’t get easier than heading to the internet and clicking on top freelance marketplaces to submit your project details” — this is a mere hype and a luring ad! Do you want to know the truth? It’s not that easy to come by the really professional developers. Do you know why? The answer is right below.
There’s Stiff Competition When it Comes to Good Developers Overseas and At Home
Gone are the days when developers offshore would be happy to accept what may seem as a peanut in the U.S. as remuneration. Right now, the competition for talented developers in large IT hubs across the globe is so stiff. As a result, remuneration packages are almost close to what is being offered in Silicon Valley.
A lot of companies abroad are sending for these IT gurus in India and other offshore destinations and offering juicy remuneration packages to them. This, in turn, is reducing their numbers on freelance marketplaces — making it harder to find these experts on freelance marketplaces.
So, How Do you Evaluate the Real Guru Developers on Freelance Sites?
In some of these freelance marketplaces, varieties of parameters are engaged in determining the real talented IT experts. A typical example of reviews from previous clients — which may not be completely reliable. This is because the people providing the ratings and reviews are not familiar with coding — they just provide the reviews as long as the interface is working — it’s all good.
However, this is not to say there are no real gurus on the freelance marketplaces. Of course, there are, but you have to rigorously and painstakingly search them out — it’s just like the effort it takes you to pass a thread through the eye of a needle. But in the end, you would find one.
Better still, you may head straight to an IT guru’s website or going through outsourcing platform to find a great developer for your company’s IT projects. This route may offer faster result in your search for a guru developer. Another thing you may do is to ask for a referral from people in your niche who know a developer they can vouch for as a result of working with such fellow.
But, generally, it’s a great option to outsource your development projects than hire the expert in-house — the latter would cost you much more in the long run. Yes, the cost burden would be much more compared to outsourcing!
