Zebra Technologies works at the forefront of data analytics and software development methodologies. With a very rich portfolio of sensor, communication and IoT based solutions deployed in many industries and verticals, Zebra has expanded its scope of services to new data analytic methodologies to develop solutions that provide business-aligned insights and allow their customers to become not only data driven, but also knowledge driven. Having this in mind, Zebra needed to create a team of at least 10 senior Java developers in a period of 3 months to be able to increase their productivity in the software development area.
Zebra Technologies was not able to build this team in such a short period of time at their headquarters because it required a lot of investment in recruitment and training; additionally it was difficult to find the right candidates on-site. That’s why they opted to search for options to grow their development team off-site, through companies in other countries. However, they then encountered other difficulties, including timezone, culture, work quality and the skill level of the candidates.
