Today, the demand for developers has led companies to evaluate their options and opt for models such as offshoring, nearshoring and outsourcing.

Let's start by defining each of them: 

  • Outsourcing or outsourcing of services: means hiring external suppliers to deliver a product or service. 
  • Nearshoring: as the name implies, it means "close to home. For example, companies in the United States look for talent in Latin American countries that have a similar time zone and culture to facilitate real-time communication.
  • Offshoring: creating a team that functions independently, anywhere in the world, regardless of time zone or similar culture. 

Next, we are going to focus on Outsourcing, which is increasing drastically in the technological area. This resource has become very popular for companies, as they find global talent by outsourcing.

This modality is very common for software development, because customers are looking for suppliers or partners to develop or accelerate their software by empowering engineering teams. 

If you are a software engineer or if you have studied a career related to technology, this information will interest you.
