Problem

Irys was outsourcing its IT work to multiple freelance developers in different regions. As they grew, this method didn’t grow with them. It helped them save money in the early stages of development, but they needed to take over full control of their tech team to create a refined product, accelerate revenue generation, and evolve with a stronger company culture.

Approach

Irys came to CodesLink looking for a partner to help them build a dedicated remote developers team and break free from software development outsourcing agencies and freelancers without investing a fortune in recruiting and hiring costs.

Strategy

Irys used staff augmentation with payroll and benefits management to build their remote developers team.

They started with two Full Stack Developers and scaled to add UX/UI Designers, Android Mobile Developers, and iOS Mobile Developers with tech skills ranging from JavaScript, NodeJs, Django, Python, iOS and Android Java.

Their team’s proximity to their US HQ has allowed them to fly their developers in for specific meetings and projects. Through a managed team of developers, Irys was able to quickly find, scale and onboard developers to grow their product and have now received more follow-on funding.

Results

Irys was able to build a fully dedicated remote tech team in six months

Full access to an on-demand pipeline of qualified developers

  • They started with two developers and have now grown to five active developers managed through staffing services. As needs arise, they know they can tap into CodersLink’s pre-vetted talent pool.

Improved technical project delivery and milestone achievements

  • With a completely dedicated team, Irys gained greater control, agility and predictability of roadmap completion in comparison to outsourced project management.

40% less in HR hiring costs

  • Excluding HR recruiting costs, Irys was able to hire developers at a lower rate than national levels. They also got the added benefit and HR cost reduction of payroll, benefits and performance management through CodersLink’s staffing services.
