To say that it is challenging to hire software developers right now, is an understatement.

It is REALLY tough, and you’re probably aware. 

Just about every industry and company is going digital and making technology innovations, making the demand for software developers greater than ever. With this fierce competition, it has become time consuming, expensive, and nearly impossible to get the exact talent that you need.

But all hope is not lost. With CoDev, even small and mid-sized companies can get easy access to quality, international development talent without the hassle or the high costs. CoDev specializes in finding and hiring development talent fast, utilizing a proven process, and giving customers a seamless experience. For every major challenge you may face in trying to hire software developers, rest assured that CoDev has the solution you need:

Challenge 1: Limited access to qualified candidates

There’s no question that there is a workforce shortage in the technology industry. However, the problem is not so much in finding software developers. It’s in finding the right ones, with the right skills.

Most companies look to hire developers with particular skills and experience, in areas such as big data and analytics, security, and legacy systems. These types of specializations are difficult to find, especially from fresh graduates. The majority of those who do possess these skills are already employed in large companies.

How CoDev Helps: CoDev gives you access to a larger pool of qualified candidates. We have a ready lineup of various vetted IT professionals, plus a broad recruiting database that spans the entire Philippines. Our comprehensive and proven selection process ensures that our clients get the exact talent that they need, when they need it. Whatever particular skills you may be looking for, we’ll be sure to find and secure the right talent for you.

Challenge 2: High costs of recruitment

Recruitment can cost you big time, not just in terms of cash but in time, manpower, and patience as well. This is especially true when hiring for technical positions, like software developers. According to an article on Entrepreneur, non-income generating activities like recruitment can take up 40% of a business owner’s work hours. That’s a significant chunk that could’ve been devoted to more productive work.

How CoDev Helps: We help lower your costs by taking the burden of recruiting completely off of your shoulders. We do all the work of sourcing and screening qualified candidates, as well as handling wage negotiations, providing benefits, workstations, training, and more! All this for one clear and affordable monthly price.

Challenge 3: Competitors with better offers

If you’ve tried to hire a developer recently, you’ll know this struggle. You spend hours and hours searching for just the right candidate, poring over resumes and code samples, conducting interviews– finally, you find the perfect one. You give them your job offer, only to be shut down and told that they’ve gotten a better offer elsewhere.

Tight competition is pushing companies to offer higher salaries and more attractive benefits packages. Such perks include everything from casual dress codes and remote work setups, to free lunches and gym memberships. For many startups and small businesses, budgets are already tight enough without having to spend more on these areas. 

How CoDev Helps: With CoDev, you never have to deal with recruitment competitors because we’ll deal with them for you. Our broad recruitment database allows us to hire foreign developers, meaning we face less competition and are able to offer better deals for less. We’ll also be the ones taking care of wage negotiations and benefits for any employee you would like to hire.

Challenge 4: High salary demands

The US Bureau of Labor predicted that there would be 1.4 million new developer job openings in 2020, but only 400,000 IT graduates to fill those positions. This considerable gap explains why salaries for developers get higher and higher every year. In-house developers have the highest salary rates, which is why a lot of companies opt for freelance developers or outsourcing instead.

How CoDev Helps: CoDev offers you the best compromise. We help you hire offshore developers of the same quality and caliber as local ones, at half the price. That means you get a dedicated developer on your team, without the high costs.

No matter how challenging hiring developers and other IT professionals may be, CoDev is here to help you conquer those challenges. Get in touch with us today to get started!
