Moqod — Amsterdam Headquarters and Outsourcing Software Opportunities
Having a remote developer is a way of outsourcing work to a developer who works remotely with your team. This can be an easy way to hire an iOS developer, android developer, web developer, or software one for example. There are two types of remote developers: nearshore and offshore.
Nearshore developers operate from a country close to where the customer operates. There usually is a small-time difference or a similar time zone. You might already be able to guess, but offshore developers work from far away and are generally in a different time zone (4 hours+ difference). Moqod specializes in nearshore recruitment, which means they can provide you with the best team of developers from a country closeby.

- Reaching Investor Milestones
If your company has investors, it's crucial to meet the pre-determent milestones set before the investors started investing in your business. These milestones can be used to evaluate the total value of your company. The milestones will be the primary indicator investors will use to determine if their investment in your company was worth it or not.
To be comfortable with reaching these pre-determent milestones, it's important to have a good team surrounding you and your projects. Moqod provides you with a good team you can trust to do what's needed to reach the milestones. This way, you can satisfy your investors by reaching your pre-determent milestones in the proper timeframe.
- Reaching internal agreements with stakeholders
Every organization has a different set of stakeholders. These stakeholders can be both internal and external. Internal stakeholders are employees, managers, and owners. External stakeholders can be anyone that interacts with an organization from an outside perspective. This can be anyone from customers to suppliers and investors.
Together with these stakeholders, targets can be set. These targets can be named Key Performance Indicators, also known as KPIs. An example of a KPI can be to meet a certain amount of revenue. To meet this KPI, it can be helpful to hire extra developers for your team. To meet these set KPIs is where an agile nearshore development team comes into play.
Hiring an agile nearshore software development to achieve your KPIs is also known as IT team augmentation — a strategy where an organization hires staff with the goal to reach objectives. A nearshore development team can help you and your organization meets its internal agreements with stakeholders — defined in the organization's KPIs.

The Process of Agile Nearshore Development
Stage 1. Requirements qualification
During the first part of our process, we'd like to have a one-hour call with you to discuss everything for your project. During this call, we'll discuss all your wants and needs, and we'll validate if we can help you find the developers you need.
We gather as much information as possible to ensure we get the best results for your company. This call won't take up more than a single hour. After this call, we'll work on the next step for you: the screening and interview process.
Stage 2. Screening and Interview Process
We look at many different talented developers during the screening and interview process. We pick the best developer candidates for your project, who we then screen on their skills. If they match the hard and soft skills we are looking for, we invite them for an interview.
We would like you to attend this interview to meet the new developer candidate. We will gauge if they master the necessary soft and hard skills during the interview to work on your project.
Stage 2 will take about 2 -4 weeks in total. We are ready to move to step 3 once we find one or multiple developers that fit your project.
Stage 3. Contract and Onboarding
Arriving at stage 3 means that we have found the right developer(s) for your project! We introduce you to your new nearshore developers in this final stage of the process.
During an online call, you and the developers will discuss the project, and we'll assist the onboarding process of the new developers within your company. During this, we’ll also discuss and sign the final contract.
Moqod is available to answer any questions or help in any part of the onboarding process.
