The Better Alternative To Hiring A Full-time Software Developer

Whether you run a tech company or have a one-time project that requires a software developer’s input, you know how long and messy the process of hiring and onboarding a qualified professional can be. 

Finding the right person for the job ensures half of the project’s success. Not only do you want to find and hire a skillful and knowledgeable specialist, but you want to make sure that this person is capable of working in the team, shares company values and is motivated by growth and not the paycheck only. People are the greatest assets to the company and just like any other relationship, employer-employee cooperation should benefit both parties in the long run. 

And what happens if you need additional software development talent for a one-time project without further commitment? Of course, there is an option to hire a freelancer or an independent contractor. Choosing to use freelance services in the gig economy doesn’t guarantee success either - it’s difficult to find the right qualifications, especially if you are looking for more experienced software developers.  

Don’t get me wrong, hiring a proficient software developer full-time can be a great asset to your company. After all, the knowledge and expertise that they bring in the company can outweigh all the cons of hiring a full-time employee, but finding a professional who is worth it is a big challenge.  

Disadvantages

The economic instability makes it harder for small and medium sized businesses to guarantee long-term contracts with the company. Even if the employer wants to hire a software developer full-time, it might not always be a sustainable decision from the cost-optimisation point of view and cost is not the only concern here.  

Cost

The most glaring of all concerns related to hiring a software engineer full-time is the cost, especially for the companies that don’t operate in the tech department. The costs of hiring a new employee are not limited to salary only, they include tax, legal fees, pension contributions, sickness absence, office, and equipment, etc. The total sum with all the small expenses adds up to be a rather big investment for a company. 

Timeline

Selection, interviewing, hiring and onboarding is a time-consuming process that could take weeks, if not months. In the fast-paced market where changes happen all the time, quickly respond to them is crucial. Spending a long time hiring might cost you a time-sensitive project, spending little time hiring might cost you an unsuitable candidate. 

Qualifications

Finding the right match is hard. Professional qualifications include much more than just a degree, it’s all the previous work experience, versatile knowledge, and expertise that the candidate can bring to the table, but talk is cheap - skills need to be tested so that you can confirm whether this candidate is a suitable match for your company.
