Why hire Trio developers?

At Trio, we only recruit those who show amazing potential or demonstrate exceptional skill. We then take their talents and sharpen them even further. True software professionals, our engineers are capable of adapting to situations both within and outside the scope of their general expertise.

When you hire a Trio developer, you won’t incur the costs of hiring. Those costs can add up to be around 30% of a developer’s salary! You also won’t pay the ongoing overhead costs associated with full-time employment.

By working with Trio, you can acquire a highly experienced, full-time developer for a fraction of the cost, complete with project management assistance.


Freelance developers vs. Trio developers

The freelance developer market is oversaturated. Freelancers have basic coding skills, but can the average freelancer build a whole system front to back? One that can scale as your company grows? Because a freelancer’s experience isn’t verified and their skills aren’t vetted, it’s difficult to know for sure. But it’s unlikely.

Freelance developers

  • It’s 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

  • Guaranteed talent
  • Committed to your project (and supported as they work through it)
  • Values communication, availability, and collaboration
  • Integrates into your company culture
  • Clear code and solid processes
  • Follows best practices
  • Easy to manage

Employed developers vs. Trio developers

If you have a large or complex project, it’s best to hire a full-time developer. Someone who can dedicate themselves to working on your project full-time, with passion and care.

But finding the right developer can be time-consuming, and it comes with a ton of unforeseen costs. On the other hand, if you hire through Trio, then finding the right developer is a quick, straightforward process.

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)

Working with a Trio developer

  • Developers are dedicated and work full time
  • The developers are already experienced
  • Short hiring cycles (we find great talent fast)
  • No employee overhead
  • Diverse work experiences and skills
  • It's cost-effective

Why hire remote developers?

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

More importantly, if your company is a startup and you’re building your first product, you’ll need someone who really can make the right decisions regarding:

  • Software architecture
  • Your tech stack
  • Technical requirements and documentation
  • Technical challenges and bugs

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

While you might have to learn how to work with remote developers, it’s certainly worth the effort. And there are plenty of tools that you can use to make your life easier.

What should you look for in a developer?

At a high level, developers should:

  • Be professional and have refined soft skills
  • Have solid theoretical knowledge of software development
  • Have solid technical skills in the relevant tech stack
  • Enjoy learning and pick 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

How do you hire a good developer?

Hiring a good developer takes time. It also takes extensive experience with software development on both operational and managerial levels. You have to know what technical skills you’re looking for—and how to test those skills.

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

How do remote 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 remote developer?

Developers can be found on 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.

If you want to skip the long process of talent acquisition, and avoid the risk of working with a freelancer, then try working with a software development partner such as Trio. We already found the talent that you need.
