Our customers have a variety of needs and work in different ways depending on the area. Off-Site model can deliver cost saving while keeping a highly talented developer engaged and happy. On-Site is often required based on the type of development being done. A mix where the developer starts work within the team on site for a few months, but then migrates to a remote member once they have a handle on the code they’re developing.
