What makes CodeStringers unique in providing outsourced dedicated teams?
Firms looking to build a dedicated team with an outsourcer need to trust that the personnel assigned are “A+” personnel and that those personnel will adhere to a set of values. At CodeStringers we recruit the top personnel in the geography of our development subsidiary (Vietnam) and we screen candidates prior to hiring not only for job function and technical skills, but also for cultural fit and adherence to our corporate values of integrity, craftsmanship, and innovation. All personnel in the geography of our subsidiary are hired for a two-month probationary period during which we further evaluate what we tried to learn during the interview and reference process prior to hiring. If a person does not have the required job and technical skills or fails to live up to our cultural standards, probation is terminated and new candidates are recruited.
When CodeStringers builds a dedicated team for a client, we assign a team of resources that includes the “right” level of seniority and we provide a management/leadership structure who, transparent to clients, oversee those resources to ensure that our standards of quality are met. And the cost of that leadership oversight is bundled in our monthly resource pricing. In other words, we “sell” the client a team of personnel, but we also have management oversee the work quality of those people and include the cost of that extra service in our pricing. Larger outsourcers just assign a team and hope for the best and, when the best doesn’t happen, blame the client for mismanaging the initiative.
We do these things because we genuinely stand behind our corporate values: Integrity, Craftsmanship, Innovation. Our job is to help clients define the “right” product; keep the promises we make; and provide a level of quality and manageability that’s more akin to insourcing than outsourcing.
