[GUIDELINE] HIRING INTERNATIONAL TECH TALENTS: WHY, WHERE, AND HOW?
The market for tech talents is continuously heating up. Hiring tech teams from overseas countries which are safe and have a much lower cost seemed like a temporary solution due to the global impact of COVID-19. Now it’s a permanent fixture of businesses around the world adapting to a new digital workplace.
TOP 5 in-demand roles of tech talents
Data Scientists & Machine Learning Engineers
The pandemic has accelerated the demand for data scientists by 50% for the year. 55% of all the data scientists on LinkedIn are located in the United States. Still, there are other hotbeds of data scientists in countries like India, the Netherlands, and Israel (The State of Data Science).
It is predicted that more than 3 million automation jobs will emerge in the next decade. The pandemic has accelerated the demand with increased reliance on logistics companies, retail, e-commerce, manufacturing, and healthcare (Motion Recruitment).
Full-Stack developers & Mobile developers
Annual increase in demand for Full Stack Engineers over the past four years is 35% (LinkedIn’s 2020 Emerging Jobs Report). Increased demand in ed-tech, health tech, e-commerce, and gaming has accelerated that demand.
Infrastructure Engineers include test, design, build, and maintain a company’s infrastructure, such as a search engine, database, or other platforms. The demand for infrastructure engineers has been exponentially increasing, especially within the telecom industry. Increased online traffic, e-commerce, and cloud migration have accelerated demand.
Since moving to remote work last year, Cybersecurity attacks have increased 150%. It is expected that in 2021, there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity roles globally, and the yearly cost of cybercrime will reach $6 trillion (Cybersecurity Ventures).

Larger talent pool
Companies such as Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple know that hiring tech talent is competitive, so they recruit globally for top talent. Choosing to hire offshore developers allows you access to a wide variety of talents worldwide with the latest technology so that the quality of the projects still balances international standards.
If you adopt the most effective ways of how to manage remote teams efficiently, you can increase the productivity of your offshore tech talents team significantly.
24/7 Dedicated Support
If you only have a local team, the midnight execution would require your team to work additional hours. But with an offshore team that has a decent time gap (i.e., 4-6 hours) that enables for some overlap but also has some working hours outside of your local time, you can address problems that arose at the end of your business day and work on them outside your business hours.
Having your own IT department, working with international tech talents in a separate time zone facilitates the execution of a 24-hour development cycle that enables you to catch up more rapidly with the demands and modifications that are significantly impacted by real-time behavior (typical for internet solutions that are used globally).
Much Cost savings
Hiring resources in countries with lower living costs in comparison to where the headquarters are located can help reduce cost up to 70%. This is how businesses can dissimilarly utilize the cost in recruitment, maintenance, infrastructure and other benefits for full-time local employees.
For example, the remote programmer salary in many countries in Asia and Eastern Europe is much lower than the same in North American and Western European countries. With the same number of skilled professionals in the team, the costs incurred are much less. When you can build software for less, you sell it for less and it gives you a costing edge!
