The demand for people with technical skills and talent is increasing worldwide. Companies are taking a variety of approaches to meet their individual faculty needs. Since the people with the technical skills and the organizations who need them don’t always overlap geographically, companies are being creative in their approach to hiring the talented software engineers that they need. Some companies are outsourcing their engineering overseas or looking at people who live in the same country but in a different part of the country. Telecommuting is a popular option, but it may not be practical depending on the needs of the project. Many companies working with the H-1B visa program to get the staff of software engineers that they need. Whatever strategy you choose, gaining more information about your options is a good place to start. In this article, we’ll look at nearshore, offshore, and onsite faculty options for software engineers and the pros and cons each model offers to better educate you as you make faculty decisions in the future.
The nearshore approach to hiring software engineers is a good compromise between having onsite staff and outsourcing staff halfway around the world. With the nearshore model, the technical staff you’ve hired is in a time zone close to the one your company is in, with no more than a three-hour time difference.
When hiring provisional workers offshore, these are teams located halfway around the world or so from your company. For example, a software company in Arizona might outsource some of its workload to a team in Eastern Europe or Russia.

When you need to hire software engineers to help your full-time employees, a simple and convenient way is to use the onsite option. This means that you’ll hire technical staff to work at your office for a set amount of time. It is, in short, outsourcing your faculty needs, but they’ll be working out of your office for the period of the contract.
