The book is NOT about:
– traditional remote work
In this book we interpret the word “remote” differently from what you are used to. We don’t talk about working from home (we don’t). Our approach to remote work is building a team of developers who work on the client’s project from the vendor’s office.
– Qubit Labs
We collected information about different approaches to outsourcing, described the variety of offshore teams and price formation for them, estimated the approximate timing for hiring a team and illustrated it all with the examples from our practice. The idea is to show all forms of remote work and how they are applicable to different businesses.
– software development
Although we specialize in hiring developers, outsourcing also involves marketing, HR, back office process and many others. The models described in “Offshore Team 101” are applicable to all domains.
