Go to FAQ Arrow Left

What are development teams?

Development teams are simply a group of two or more developers working together on a project. They communicate and collaborate together using project management software and delegate separate tasks in order to build an application or system faster and more efficiently. Development teams are powerful in the sense that they distribute the workload across multiple people and thus can increase your time to launch and also overall code quality if implemented successfully.

How do I start a development team?

To start a development team you need 2 or more developers. You may hire them yourself or leverage the expertise of a tech partner that will source, interview, and hire the developers for you.

How do you structure a software development team?

The best teams are small and agile. Everyone in the team plays a role and there are clear processes put in place to get tasks done. Sometimes teams might even have a tech lead who can guide the team from week to week.

What developers are in a development team?

A simple development team consists of 1-2 backend developers and 1-2 frontend developers. Some teams even have tech leads, project managers, and even scrum masters that help guide the team from week to week.

Do I need more than one developer?

If you are looking to build a fairly complex web application in a small amount of time, you might need to hire more developers in order to distribute the workload. Having just two developers can dramatically increase the speed of which new features and components are built.

How to Hire A Dedicated Development Team

Building a distributed team from scratch can be a time-consuming endeavor that requires knowledge and experience with software development in order to screen, interview, and hire the right developers.  

It’s not as simple as just hiring X amount of developers and getting straight to work. Each developer on your team will play an important role and it’s important that they can not only play to each other’s strength but can cover for each other in times of stress.

Consider the following scenario:

You’re looking to build a fairly complex web application that requires some extensive expertise with backend development, but you also want to have a stunning frontend. Furthermore, you have only 4 months to make all of this happen. 

This is a great use-case for hiring a remote team of developers. If you are reading this then chances are that you don’t have the time and energy to manage the hiring process yourself and are currently:

  • Shopping around different app dev agencies
  • Looking for reliable tech partner 

Tech Partners vs Agencies

Agencies have been around for decades. They are known to be costly and very predictable when it comes to how they work on projects. Agencies also can provide a level of structure and bureaucracy that can be comforting for those who are used to that dynamic. 

One of the major drawbacks of the agency model is that they will juggle multiple projects and might even switch developers out without your knowledge. This can expose your business to technical debt, something that you will pay for ten-fold in the future. 

The only way to prevent technical debt is to take ownership of the development process and have the knowledge and experience to establish strong processes. This is where tech partners come in.

Tech partners are more personal. They can provide you developers that fit the criteria you are looking for. They might also provide project management and other extra services as well, but for the most part you will have ownership of the development process. 

This is a great option for those who want to have “in-house” developers but wish to save time and money. 

Tech Partners vs Trio

Not all tech partners are created equal. The quality of your tech partner is directly related to the quality of their talent. A tech partner’s ability to find and hire talent is a skill that varies from one to the next. 

Ideally, you want to find a tech partner that you trust. It’s important that you do your due diligence here. Also, understand that not all tech partners work in the same way so you will want to find a partner that is compatible and is on the same wavelength as you. 

So what’s the difference between Trio and other tech partners?

  • Trio works in U.S timezones, most other companies do not
  • Trio places a very strong emphasis on communication and professionalism
  • Trio’s hiring process is unique, we invest a lot of resources into this
  • Trio uses strong development methodologies to ensure quality code
  • Trio invests in their developer’s growth and development 
  • Trio is headquartered in Boston, MA (no we’re not a foreign entity faking our location)

Why are these differences important? 

Working with a tech partner can be a long-term relationship, so it’s important that you make sure that you’re compatible with them. First and foremost, a partner that is communicative, transparent, and professional is a good indicator of a healthy relationship. 

Next is the hiring process. A lot of tech partners will use a basic hiring process. Exceptional partners will constantly fine-tune their process to provide the best service they possibly can. Obviously you want a partner that has high standards, as it will be the difference between good code and bad code.

Another major key to understanding the nuances of good vs great development is the power of processes and methodologies. Every developer has a unique style, but when working as a team there must be a set of processes and guidelines that keep developers on the same page. It’s hard to say which tech partners in the industry invest in this but we at Trio certainly do! 

Investing in your software developers’ growth is extremely important. If you are working with tech partners, ideally they should be the ones responsible for this. Again it’s hard to say who does this and who doesn’t, but Trio takes growth very seriously as we believe that it’s one of the key traits of a great developer. 

Finally, when it comes to time-zones, some businesses are fine with working with partners based 12 hours ahead of them. However many would rather prefer that the developers work when they work. To put it simply, working with a partner that hires developers in your time-zone leads to easier communication and better coordination. 

How much does it cost to hire a development team?

At Trio, our price model is based on the number of developers you wish to hire. Other factors that go into the project cost is the timeline and developer expertise. 

Timelines are heavily dependent on the complexity of a project. Trio can help validate your timeline based on your technical specifications and help you refine your development and launch strategy.

Why Hire Development Teams With Trio

Trio developers are pre-vetted, interviewed, and then trained further to become true software professionals, capable of adapting to situations that are both within and outside of the scope of their general expertise. 

At Trio, we hold our developers to a higher standard. Much like how elite special forces units recruit only the best from main branches of the military, we recruit developers who either show amazing potential or demonstrate exceptional skill. We then take their talents and sharpen them even further.

Another benefit of hiring a Trio developer is that you won’t incur the costs of hiring, which can add up to be around 30% of a developer’s salary on average, as well as overhead costs associated with full-time employment. 

By working with Trio, you can enjoy a highly experienced full-time developer for a fraction of the cost, along with the added project management assistance.
