While US companies may offer their developers competitive salaries, when it comes to filling open tech positions, many of them have trouble finding suitable tech specialists.

Tech giants like Google, Microsoft, and Apple try to attract and keep the best talent by offering extremely generous remuneration packages. In the meantime, many smaller businesses are struggling to keep up, especially if we add the social contributions and infrastructure costs.

Even in those states that have a greater than average concentration of tech workers, many employers are starting to look for alternative ways to add software engineers to their development teams.

One such way is to hire developers remotely. By doing so, business owners are not only able to cut their expenses, but also access a much larger pool of tech talent.
