Imagine being a soccer team and having the possibility of hiring Messi and Neymar just when you need them, maybe for an important final. Wouldn’t that be great? Well, that is what staff augmentation is all about.


So, your company is growing and you discover that software engineering is a great part of your daily needs. You already have a team, but the workload is getting bigger and you feel that it is time to grow in the engineering field. However, you are not sure if you are ready to hire new staff to join your permanent team: talent is not so easy to find and it may be costly. How could you maximize the benefits of having a larger and skilled IT department while minimizing its costs? 


At Virtualmind we are experts at that. As a staff augmentation company with over 15 years in the market, we know exactly what you need and how to give it to you. We are ready to provide you with trained engineers that can join your existing teams or create one from scratch, for as long as you need them, supplying your specific needs. Here we will tell you, briefly, how this may benefit you:


You will gain flexibility

There may be moments in your company when you need a large team devoted to software development -think, for example, of a great market launching event, creating a product demo or an app -, while sometimes the tasks will be fewer and less demanding. Having an external company as your software team means that you can request more engineers at the “high season” while having fewer staff working with you at other times. And this, obviously, also means reducing costs.


You will get expertise

We have well-trained and experienced professionals who are up to date with the latest technologies and systems. When you decide to use a staff augmentation company for your IT department, you are getting state-of-the-art knowledge and people who really know what they are dealing with. Latin America has some of the best-trained software development professionals in the world, and the results speak for themselves.


You will save money

It is no news that hiring staff is always expensive: it involves the whole process of advertising, interviewing, and selecting candidates, the hiring process in itself, taxes, and benefits. And let’s not forget about the initial immersion and training programs. When you choose to work with a staff augmentation company, you get people who are involved in your daily work as if they were part of your permanent workforce but without all the additional costs. 


All in all, what you will get is the best of two worlds: excellent professionals that will work hand in hand with your team, committed to your projects, but that can be reassigned to other tasks whenever necessary. This system has proved to be effective and cost-efficient over the years, with many companies who have decided to partner with us, creating valuable long-term relationships. You can follow them and see the results for yourself!
