  • Certainly! While effective onboarding is crucial, Trio is capable of providing senior developers within a five-day timeframe.

    We suggest that engineers begin their assignment the week after they accept an offer from Trio. This allows them to start anew at the beginning of the week. 

    Our experienced team will support you throughout this process, familiarizing themselves with your onboarding procedures to save time.

  • Trio's process is based on years of experience managing and growing successful engineering teams. We prioritize understanding your specific requirements to ensure we find the best fit senior developer for your team.

  • Indeed, Trio understands the value of dedicated support. Each senior developer is paired with an engineering manager at no additional cost. These managers handle the needs of the developers and the goals of your team on a weekly basis.

    While they support your project and engineering managers, their main goal is to allow your team to focus on what truly matters – delivering new features on time.

  • When hiring a senior developer, look for individuals with a deep understanding of their platform and its ecosystem.

    They should be familiar with best practices and have a strong understanding of fundamental concepts such as memory management, multi-threading, and user interface development. Also, their experience with popular frameworks is a crucial factor.

How to hire senior developers?

Hiring a good developer takes time. Experience with software development on both operational and managerial levels is crucial to vetting candidates properly. You should know what technical skills you’re looking for—and how to evaluate those skills.

Or you can hire a Trio developer and skip those steps.

Writing the best job description to hire senior developers

Crafting a compelling job description is essential to attract qualified senior developers. A well-written job description should include the following elements:

  • Must-haves and nice-to-haves: Outline essential skills and qualifications needed to be successful in the role. Candidates need to understand the minimum expectations and any potential advantages they may possess.

  • Responsibilities: List the responsibilities that they will have as a senior developer at your company. Highlight specific requirements, such as app architecture, feature implementation, and collaboration with cross-functional teams.

  • What to expect in X months: Outline the expectations that a candidate can expect to accomplish within a specific timeframe, such as three or six months. You want candidates to see their growth potential and impact within your organization.

  • Interview process: Briefly describe your interview process. Include the stages and assessments involved. Be transparent and prepare candidates in a way that mitigates stress and drop-outs but maintains the integrity of your evaluation.

  • Strong communication skills: Emphasize the importance of communication. As senior developers often collaborate with various stakeholders. Clear communication ensures effective teamwork and alignment throughout the development lifecycle.

Hiring an independent contractor vs. using an outsourcing software engineering agency

Sometimes companies seek out software engineers for contract work such as building an MVP, a small/medium-sized project, or to fill vоidѕ created by vacation absences and long-term leaves.

In these cases, positions typically start with a determined scope of work and a timeline.

To illustrate this, you may bring a software engineer on the team for a short period to help complete a new website. Upon completion and review, the business relationship may end unless you extend the software engineer’s term for related services.

Deciding whether to hire an independent software engineer or use an outsourcing agency can be difficult. A look at the pros and cons of each may help you make your final decision.

Advantages of hiring an outsourcing software engineering agency

Outsourcing software engineers is more cost-effective than hiring professionals in your own organization. By outsourcing your software development needs you’ll also have more time to concentrate on your core business.

images for website

No overhead

A professional agency takes care of its contractors and specialists, paying their payroll taxes and benefits. They will likely have their own budget and source control as well as their own Quality Assurance and screening procedures and utilize their own IT infrastructure.

Because of this, you’ll worry less about managing resources and additional business expenses. You pay a price, and that's that.

Reduced Risk

Fewer than a third of software projects are estimated to be completed on time and within budget.

A seasoned partner company with a proven track record of completing projects on time and on budget sharply lowers your risk and removes the element of uncertainty.

Improved Processes

Software engineering agencies create software all day, every day. They have already invested time in learning how to accelerate application development.

Partnering with them suggests exclusive access to all the innovative technology and methodologies they have to enhance your application's development.

Disadvantages of hiring an outsourcing software engineering agency

Though outsourcing is financially cost-effective, you may lose the benefit of having a person-to-person relationship with the people you’re working with.

images for website_Prancheta 1 cópia 7-2

Less commitment

There’s no guarantee that an outsourcing agency will be less dedicated or motivated than otherwise. But it’s a fact that outsourced software engineers don’t have a personal interest in your project, at least that’s not what they were hired for.

Unless you do some in-depth research on the agency you use, you’re rolling the dice on the level of commitment you’re paying for.

Gaps in communication

As much as you tell the agency about the features you want and the deadlines to meet, there will naturally be some distance from the creative mission of your business.

Hitting every nail on its head will require a bit more communication than a list of objectives.

A good tech partner will meet you more than halfway if they truly care about their relationship with your company.

Advantages of Hiring an Independent Contractor

You can think of independent contractors as freelancers but more loyal by definition. They provide a lot of flexibility and offer some of the same benefits as having full-time staff.

images for website_Prancheta 1 cópia 8-2

Staffing Flexibility

If your small business is like most, it has busy periods followed by slow periods.

Contractors can save you from having to carry staff during slower periods. Trusted contractors also absorb some of the responsibilities that overwhelm your regular staff by effectively distributing the workload.

Additional Expertise

You may find that you need someone to perform specific tasks or launch projects which fall outside your regular employees' scope of expertise.

This is where hiring software engineers with independent contractors make more sense than hiring more full-time staff.

Disadvantages of Hiring an Independent Contractor

There are, of course, downsides to hiring an independent contractor as well. Most of these disadvantages have to do with understanding the capacity of an independent contractor in the first place.

images for website_Prancheta 1 cópia 9-1

Increased Risk of Audits

Working with contractors increases your risk for government audits. Specifically, they’ll be investigating the working relationship between the contractor and your business.

This underscores the importance of understanding how your local and federal government classifies contractors. A key factor will be how your business controls how things get done. Overall, you must keep your contractor’s freedom in mind.

High Turnover

Independent contractors come and go. People are drawn to contracting largely because it gives them greater control over who they work with. Additionally, most businesses hire contractors for short-term jobs, which makes it difficult to cultivate loyalty.

In other words, high turnover rates are to be expected. Contractors can be notoriously disloyal, meaning many can leave you in the dust if a higher-paying project comes along.

Why Trio senior developers?

At Trio, we carefully select individuals who show great potential or exceptional skill. Our senior developers are experienced professionals who excel in communication and are ready to deliver real impact to your products.

When you hire a developer from Trio, you don't have to worry about the expenses of the hiring process. These expenses can amount to about 30% of a developer's salary. Additionally, you won't have to pay the overhead associated with employing someone full-time.

Freelance developers vs Trio developers

Finding freelancers can be a cost-effective way to build websites, however, when it comes to building software, working with a freelance developer can easily land you in trouble.

It’s rare to find a freelancer that’s excellent at building scalable back-ends and pixel-perfect front-ends. Freelancers also don’t have the incentive to stick around.

Often they don’t share much alignment with your company's mission and the product you are trying to build, and that will most definitely show in their work.

Freelance developers

  • Hard to find good talent

  • No long-term commitment

  • Looking for new opportunities (might jump ship)

  • Shaky communication, availability, and collaboration skills

  • Not part of your company culture

  • Risk of messy code and processes

  • No best practices in place

  • Can be hard to manage

  • Low trust

Trio developers offer better expertise on a highly professional level. Senior developers at Trio value communication and process to build the best product for your business.

Working with a partner is a chance for Trio senior developers to impact the world with their code and be a part of your mission.

Companies often look to Trio to build long-term staffing pipelines for their growing teams and Trio provides long-term support to ensure that senior developers are satisfied, growing, and providing value to our partners.

If you have a large or complex project, it’s best to hire a full-time developer who can dedicate themselves to working on your project full-time, and deliver real value to your team.

But finding the right developer can be time-consuming, and it comes with a ton of unforeseen costs. Hiring through Trio will dramatically increase the speed at which you hire quality talent that fits the requirements you need.

Employing a full-time developer in-house can be helpful when it comes to building a core team that knows the product inside out. However finding a 10X senior developer can be challenging, and your business's attractiveness to senior developers might affect your ability to hire quickly.

The best developers aren’t looking for work.

Employing a full-time developer

  • No guaranteed relationship

  • Employee overhead costs

  • Long hiring cycles

  • Training costs

  • Very costly (due to benefit provisions and HR needs)

  • Best talent often isn’t in the job market

Working with a Trio developer

  • Developers are dedicated and work full time

  • Experienced

  • Short hiring cycles (we find great talent fast)

  • No employee overhead

  • Diverse work experience and skills

  • Cost-effective

Why hire senior developers?

If you’re looking to build a software product, you’ll need a software developer.

If you’re operating a startup that’s looking to build a product, you’ll need a senior developer who can do the following:

  • Work under the pressure and ambiguity that startup culture brings

  • Be involved with the product and contently be thinking about the end-user experience

  • Work well with your CTO or VP of Engineering to build MVP and other PoCs

Hiring remote developers has several benefits, such as cost reduction and flexibility. Remote developers are also generally happier because they have more autonomy than a developer who is forced to come into the office every day.

What should you look for in a senior developer?

If you’re looking for senior developers, the greatest challenge is finding the ones that communicate well with their team and managers.

At a high level, developers should:

  • Be professional and have exceptional communication skills

  • Have solid theoretical knowledge of software development

  • Have solid technical skills in the relevant tech stack

  • Enjoy learning and picking up new technologies quickly

  • Stay up-to-date and informed with their development community

  • Be capable of writing clean code

  • Be confident and unafraid of test-driven development

You should also look for diversity in their employment. Developers that have seen a lot, can do a lot. So ideally, you’ll want to see a healthy history of transition from company to company. The signal we are looking for here is adaptability.

A red flag is when a developer has a pattern of job hopping for under a year. It’s a strong signal that the developer didn’t stay long enough to learn anything or provide value. Of course, the exception here is that sometimes a developer gets a bad gig and gets out.

On the other end, developers that stay too long in one role haven’t encountered new challenges and might not perform in faster and more ambitious environments. The same goes for enterprise-level developers that transition to the startup world.

Big tech or enterprise developers often use custom tooling. Unless they have an active history of contributing to open-source using modern technologies, they might have some challenges adjusting.

Finally, you want a developer that can write well and articulate their thoughts both technical and non-technical in a clear way. Communication cannot be understated as it is the primary reason developers fail at companies.

How do senior developers work?

Remote developers work in the comfort of their homes, using technologies such as Zoom and Slack to communicate with the rest of their team. With a remote development workflow, they can push code onto GitHub or Bitbucket, and they can manage their tasks using project management software such as Trello and Jira.

How do you find a senior developer?

Developers looking for work visit job boards like Indeed, LinkedIn Jobs, and We Work Remotely. If you are looking for a developer to do something specific and focused, you could use a freelance platform like Upwork.
