    Top 10 Reasons to Outsource Development

    By Mikel Lindsaar,

    2017 development management personnel

    Today I was asked by a client to give them some reasons why they should outsource to reinteractive instead of hiring an in house team. They needed to convince their Board the pros and cons of setting up an internal software development team from scratch versus using reinteractive. The project under discussion was the implementation a bunch of key features for their platform as well as a partial rewrite of key aspects.

    Unsurprisingly, I've been asked this question several times by our clients, and my response has almost always been the same; do both.

    What Makes a Great Developer?

    I must say, it made me smile when I heard of a prospective client who called in last week saying, “I’ve been looking to hire a senior Rails developer and you guys seem to have all the best ones.” Now, of course we will work with her to fill in any gaps and help her onboard new developers, as we have done for many other clients.

    But it really validates our hard work to create a workplace that attracts some of the top talent in the country. We pride ourselves on our approach to remote work, team accomplishment and happiness.

    How to best manage remote developers

    I’ve been working remotely in my capacity as a salesperson since July 2014. I have greatly appreciated the opportunity of working remotely as I can help my wife run her law practice by occasionally taking care of our two young children. There is sometimes work that needs to be done after the kids go to sleep but I have helped my boss, Mikel Lindsaar, grow the company consistently for the last six months as the Sales Manager for Asia Pacific.

    Most of the employees at reinteractive are developers. All of the developers work remotely and working remotely is a condition stated in their contracts. Some companies struggle with the concept of remote work and the struggle is largely in answering the question: "how do you manage a remote developer?"

    How we work at reinteractive

    While growing reinteractive I have been asked many times how we operate. I've been asked this by prospective clients and by prospective staff. I thought it would make sense to write up a blog post covering the key points on how our developers and team work at reinteractive and what parts of our development process are important to us.

    Having our entire team work remotely is a strong management point for us. Our remote team encourages focused work without the large distractions of an office environment. Of course, this means that you can't shout a question across the office, or go and interrupt another team member, we see this as a good thing. However, team communication matters so we have numerous Flowdock channels to communicate on each project. This has the added advantage of information being recorded, allowing for any team member to "get up to speed" on what is happening after a short absence by reading the log of what has been said.
