Remote Development Center FAQ

What are the major differences between Managed Team and DevCenter services?

UpTeam's managed remote development team consists of 5 or more software professionals who work collaboratively with the client's technology team on various projects or handle one or more engineering or business functions. With over 10 years of experience working with high-velocity US technology startups, we are well-versed in growing and adapting teams to ever-changing product requirements. UpTeam project managers and TalentOps oversee these teams, which can be tightly integrated with the client's business and engineering processes. The majority of UpTeam's engagements involve dedicated development teams. DevCenter is a service designed for more established companies interested and capable in long-term resource planning. Examples of DevCenter plans might include building a complete software engineering department responsible for creating and supporting specific products, or setting up a ProServ department. The primary objective of a DevCenter engagement is to establish a self-sufficient company subsidiary capable of hiring top professionals in the local market, delivering services, and retaining talent and expertise. With a clear long-term plan in place, UpTeam managers build the required organizational structure by selecting professionals who are interested in and capable of growing their careers within the client's organization. UpTeam establishes local recruiting activities and promotes the client's employer brand in the local market. Additionally, UpTeam sets up or helps develop all necessary development, DevOps, support, and learning & development processes.

What is the typical term for an UpTeam DevCenter engagement?

DevCenter engagements typically span 12-36 months, with the initial 12 months dedicated to setting up the team, growing it to 50 or more professionals, transferring knowledge, and establishing local operations. Over the subsequent 12 to 24 months, activities focus on integrating the team into the company's core culture and processes, building the local employer brand, refining operations and services, and ultimately transitioning the DevCenter to the company's management

Why do you require a minimum planned team size of 50?

The recommended minimum team size of 50 is essential for creating a self-sufficient, sustainable team that can adapt to changes and maintain a credible presence in the local job market. For smaller teams, opting for Dedicated Teams is advised, as they can also be tightly integrated with the company's processes and organization

Who manages the DevCenter after the transition?

After the transition, UpTeam can offer services to continue managing the center as a third-party recruiting, accounting, and general business administration agency, or assist you in establishing local services yourself.

Whom can I contact to ask more questions about the DevCenter option?
