McGraw Hill is an educational publishing company that delivers personalized learning experiences to help students, parents, educators, and professionals improve results. It also provides high-quality, trusted content developed by world-class authors. McGraw Hill is one of the biggest educational publishing companies in the world, being distributed in over 96% of US school districts and in over 100 countries across the globe.
McGraw Hill needed more robust engineering to facilitate its growing technology solutions and maintain leadership in the digital-first education space. But previous onshore and offshore experiences impeded their progress. These models involved high costs for US-based engineers and incompatible work hours with offshore talent. They needed to find another answer to their problem.
To allow the existing team to take on all its desired projects (past, present, and future) McGraw Hill needed to bring on engineers at a competitive rate and in a similar time zone—namely, nearshore engineers. This would facilitate the company’s holistic growth by tackling projects that had been deprioritized due to a lack of resources.
Jobsity connected McGraw Hill with “cream of the crop” engineers from across Latin America who were in similar time zones to the company. Through Jobsity’s nearshore model, they were provided with a specially curated list of talent that aligned with the company’s unique needs. The company even found a “unicorn hire” from Jobsity’s world-class roster to join the team as a Key Accessibility Engineering Specialist. With these new additions, McGraw Hill was able to easily create a DPG team primed for collaboration.
The company was able to hire a full staff to support their in-house engineering team, also saving 33–50% in costs by hiring nearshore IT talent. This led to the company growing by 13% in under 12 months—meeting its growth goals in a way it hasn’t before. This newly expanded workforce was able to tackle the company’s additional projects and engineering needs.
