Hire engineers

Why did you decide to hire a remote dev team?

Finding local candidates was difficult and we wanted to expand our options for finding the skillsets we needed.

There are lots of options for hiring remote engineers. What made you choose YouTeam?

YouTeam was very quick and responsive. I was presented with great candidates in just days, which was fantastic for me because we were looking to move fast.

What made you decide to hire these particular developers?

They had experience working on similar projects to exactly what we needed. They also were very knowledgeable in their respective programming languages.

What’s the main value of YouTeam for you?

The ability to easily find developers with a high level of talent.
