What type of developer are you looking for?

A developer, also known as a programmer, works in the information technology (IT) sector and focuses on programming software. They develop or maintain software programs, websites, apps, or applications. Therefore, developers are essential for the proper functioning of these systems. Moreover, the term encompasses a wide range of technologies and skills, leading to many different types of developers, such as front-end developers, back-end developers, full-stack developers, mobile developers, and Cloud engineers/DevOps.

With SharpMinds, you don’t need to worry about finding the right developer. We find remote developers and testers for various technologies and programming languages. Whether you need a junior, mid-level, or seasoned expert, we find the perfect match for your project.

With our many years of experience in setting up remote development teams, we know exactly how to find and retain the right people. In addition, our developers receive English lessons every week to ensure smooth communication without misunderstandings.

Why choose nearshore outsourcing to hire a developer?

There are several strategies to attract developers, such as increasing the recruitment budget and hiring an IT recruiter. However, if you seek a developer with specific skills that align with your company culture, the local supply may be limited. Another option is to cultivate talent internally through training programs, but this demands significant investments in time, capital, and guidance. So, what if you need immediate access to development capacity without making such investments?

Nearshore outsourcing presents a viable solution. It entails delegating business activities to nearby countries. At SharpMinds, this translates to hiring developers from our European time zone locations. With nearshore outsourcing, you benefit from a cost-effective solution while ensuring access to high-quality developers. Furthermore, the proximity and streamlined communication channels foster efficient work processes and rapid response times. Additionally, shared cultural backgrounds enhance team understanding, thereby boosting productivity and dynamics. SharpMinds empowers you to construct a team that you directly manage, retaining complete control.

Team profile
Recruitment & intake


The first introduction is aimed at discovering whether our remote development solution suits your problem, but also fits your organization. We look at where you are now in terms of development, where you want to go and what requirements are set.

Team profile

If the use of remote developers proves to be the solution to your problem, a technical meeting will be scheduled. In this meeting, your current development team is discussed and it is examined with which profiles it should be supplemented. What hard and soft skills should your remote software developers have? We can only recruit properly with this information.

Recruitment & intake

We look for suitable candidates based on the team profile and the vacancy. They are first invited for an intake to check whether their English language skills are sufficient, whether they have the right soft skills and whether they fit within your corporate culture. In the second interview, they have a technical meeting with one of our specialists to see if their hard skills also match your wishes. If there is a match in our opinion, the candidates will be presented to you.


After the candidates have been screened by our recruiters, they will be introduced to you. Based on the profiles, you can decide for yourself who you invite for an interview. After this, the candidate can go through your own regular application procedure.


The candidate follows your own onboarding procedure. However, with our experience we like to think along and offer a helping hand if necessary.
