IT Staff Augmentation

An outsourcing strategy where we outsource our skilled resources to cover necessary positions required by the client on a temporary or permanent basis. IT staff augmentation has started becoming a buzzword as more and more global companies are hiring remotely.

Through 7+ years of commercial experience, Code Ninja has helped around 100+ companies from SMBs to enterprise level to augment their teams. We offer talent in all IT project roles that involve software and product engineering, UI/UX design, testing, and devOps.

There is a difference between project outsourcing and staff augmentation. While opting for resource or project outsourcing, we work on the project as a whole or some aspects of it whereas IT staffing services caters to inducting virtual resources to the in-house team for dividing the project workload.

Different outsourcing models may often cause confusion as ‘how do they work’. In staff augmentation, we augment our clients’ teams with the skilled and talented resources we have for the time period they define. Cost and timeline estimations are done mutually.

Challenges of Staff Augmentation Model

‘People are not your most important asset. The right people are.’

Staff Augmentation Model - Challenges

Finding the right fit

Just like other competing companies, all are searching for the same talent pools and at the same time. This makes it difficult to get to the right fit and have them onboard.

Solution – Make a list of staff augmentation service providing companies, and check their portfolio, tech expertise, and client reviews. Go for an introductory call.

Cross-functional teams management

Effective communication between teams and their management is another major challenge of staff augmentation, which is pretty much there in other outsourcing models too.

Solution – Choose popular project management methods I.e., agile, scrum etc., Communicate with teams regularly, appoint a project delivery person, do performance reviews often.

Cross-functional teams management
Legalities and signing contracts

Legalities and signing contracts

Signing a contract keeps things transparent and puts customer-vendor in a safe relationship. Unplanned outsourcing bills, loss of quality control, and compromised data security are some issues to look into.

Solution – Define responsibilities from both parties in a liability clause, notice periods, data protection rules, terms of invoice, governing laws etc.

Knowledge transfer

At every stage of the project, proper knowledge transfer is critical. Initial stages, during project implementation and the project closes, are some points where knowledge sharing is required.

Solution – define which data should be passed, appoint resources who will handle the knowledge, check tech documentation (if that’s available), and conduct necessary sessions.

Knowledge transfer

Code Ninja success secret – we go to exceptional lengths to offer top talent.
