Outsourced Development

Anyone know of any high quality dev shops in countries with cheap labour? I am looking to have a CTO in north america manage technology, but outsource a lot of the dev work. Any recommendations?

You get what you pay for. If you want poorly written and poorly tested software, combined with midnight conference calls made worse by language barrier issues, then you can't go wrong by offshoring development to a low cost foreign country. There are plenty of skilled developers in low cost parts of the US and Canada. So if you're outsourcing, I'd look first for development shops and freelancers in the US. Interesting software jobs are hard to find outside of major tech centers, so if what you're working on is interesting, you should be able to find people who can help you build it. My $0.02

David - I specialize in this. I would be happy to discuss this with you along with giving you. My honest recommendation is to hire them yourself rather than use a firm out there. Have the CTO manage them you will save a bundle of money doing it this way. Thanks

Check out Koombea - they are a great outsourced development firm with resources in Colombia, which is on east coast time, so the time difference is manageable.

I'm sort of looking for the opposite. I've got a great engineering team and just looking to outsource a cheap CEO that's good.

Check out funkitech on elance, they were helpful and with a CTO managing them they should be good.
