According to Statista, financial and banking, SaaS solutions, consulting, healthcare and media are – besides the IT industry itself – the top industries hiring software developers. More and more companies, especially in those fields, already employ at least a small team of developers to support their projects.
For one-off projects exceeding their capacity, these companies won’t hire the entire team. Hence, IT outsourcing is not a viable option for them. If you’re one of these companies, chances are that you only need support of a small team, or even a single person.
If that’s the case, extended team model (ETM) is a solution for you. ETM is a practice of hiring only the roles you need from an IT company, for the project you need them for. This person would work alongside your team, whether remotely or – in some occasions – at your location.
