Top Development Outsourcing Vendors?

I am looking for a top talent software development vendor, have worked with some vendors from guru.com and elance.com, but I have been mostly disappointed by their work. I have heard of toptal and gigster, but they are expensive. Is there anything in between, best of the both worlds (cost and talent)?

Hi Asad,

Just saw your post. I can offer my company's development services, InfoBeans.com

I have used Upwork, Guru and others years ago and I speak with others that have. What people find is one person or 5-10 person shops. They over promise or are learning on the job or get busy and miss deadlines.

I worked for Accenture before and we have that level of quality but at reasonable prices.

Below is a summary of our services if of interest. My cell is [removed to protect privacy] if you have questions.

After working with many startups and high growth companies, we've found one of their key struggles is finding top technical talent to develop products and services quickly, and at a reasonable cost.

Partner with InfoBeans to solve this problem:

This past year we helped numerous companies scaletheir businesses by developing custom web and mobile apps. This partnership resulted in significant savings and accelerated development timelines by working in parallel with internal teams.We provide 5 highly skilled software developers for less than the cost of 1 developer in the Bay Area.

Our services include:

  • New product development
  • Development of a minimal viable product (MVP) to show traction and or revenue to make it easier to find investors for seed stage companies.
  • UX/UI
  • Quality assurance automation
  • Business process automation
  • Other web and mobile application development and integration services
InfoBeans has demonstrated expertise in developing and generating solid solutions from the ground up. We apply lean startup models to your business and implement reusable product frameworks and APIs to accelerate product development and reduce costs.

We have many long term client relationships from one person onsite to 110 people working offshore for a client for 7 years.

InfoBeans has over 600 skilled professionals and we are hiring quickly.

We provide:

A. Offshore development

B. Onsite staffing or

C. Blended dual shore option.

For flexibility, we offer hourly rates to help you write specs, flush out your business model or start development. Our rates are $27 an hour for development and $33 to $35 an hour for UX/UI development.

To provide an idea for budgeting, a basic native mobile app starts at $7,000 to $10,000. If you already have clear specs we can provide fixed bids. If you prefer, we will also provide onsite staff from local Bay Area employees, or if required fly in our offshore talent. That talent is available for just the direct travel costs such as AirBNB.

Quickly growing your team to meet growth requirements and development deadlines can be difficult. If this is a challenge for your company too, call me today at[removed to protect privacy]to discuss how InfoBeans can partner with you to overcome this problem. Ihave some ideas that might help.Attached is our capabilities presentation and a sample of mobile apps we have developed.

Regards,

Mark

Bill, I did look there, but did not find answer to my specific question. I am looking to find a marketplace or a vendor (probably) which can provide top talent (build a team for my specific work) that are thoroughly vetted using rigorous industry methods. Toptal and gigster do that, but they are expensive for startups.

If you find a source of developers that are consistently better than Elance but work for the same price, please do them the favor of telling them to increase their rates.

(And if you find someone who tells you they can do this, ask yourself why they don't charge more. There may be a good reason, but caveat emptor.)

As Bill mentioned, this topic has been covered a lot. I wrote a bit of a screed in this thread:http://members.founderdating.com/discuss/3155/How-do-I-know-I-won-t-get-ripped-off-hiring-an-outsourced-software-developer/.

Hi Asad,

If you are interested, I would like to connect and talk about your software needs. I believe I can provide the best of both worlds, experience quality at a reasonable rate. I have more than 12 years of experience as a professional software engineer (Worked for Disney and Motorola) and I have also started 4 startups in the past. Now I am opening my software consultancy/startups studio. If you are interested please let me know I would love to learn more about your software needs and see If we could help you.

I am originally from Argentina, and we are a small team with lots of experience building different type of apps and tools. The reason we can provide a more competitive cost is because the team is based in Argentina, but we understand how business are done in US or other parts of the world. The cost of living in Argentina is much cheaper than here in US, so that allows us to provide high quality software services at a lower cost.

I have also used Upwork and Elance in the past, when I was employed and needed a hand to speed up development, and honstly there are good teams out there but you have to get lucky.

Anyways, if your are still looking, let me know would love to connect.

Thanks

Sebastian
