Jobsity developers worked with McGraw Hill to facilitate the company’s holistic growth and helped increase the team growth metrics by 13% - which is impressive in today’s hiring market.
McGraw Hill is an educational publishing company that delivers personalized learning experiences that help students, parents, educators, and professionals improve results. It also provides high-quality, trusted content developed by world-class authors. The company 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 DPG team needed help in expanding its engineering team in order to continue to build out its technology solutions and establish itself as a leader in the digital-first education space. But they faced many barriers when they realized that onshore and offshore solutions were infeasible for the company. With these models, the company was faced with high costs for US-based engineers and incompatible work hours with offshore talent. They needed to find another answer to their problem.
McGraw Hill needed highly talented developers (for a cost affordable rate and in a similar time zone) that could help the company to prioritize engineering projects that would facilitate the company’s holistic growth. This would allow the existing team to take on all its desired projects that had previously been delayed and deprioritized due to a lack of resources. Bringing in more developers would allow previously unfeasible workload to finally be tackled.
Jobsity’s nearshoring model connected McGraw Hill with 25 top-level developers from a curated list of the top 3% of developers across Latin America, scaling up their DPG team from 195 to 220 team members. The company even found a “unicorn hire” from Jobsity’s world-class talent roster to join the team as a Key Accessibility Engineering Specialist. McGraw Hill was also able to easily create a team ripe for collaboration as all of Jobsity’s selected developers worked in a close time zone to the company.
By working with Jobsity, the McGraw Hill DPG team was able to save 33-50% in hiring nearshore talent. This allowed the company to use the additional funds to hire the full team they envisioned to support their engineering team.
This newly expanded workforce was able to tackle the company's additional projects and engineering needs, even in the face of projects evolving and expanding. This led to the DPG team growing by 13% in under 12 months - meeting its growth goals in a way it hasn't before.
