One of our core priorities at Daxx is to help companies worldwide address the lack of qualified local specialists in their region through nearshore outsourcing and developer relocation. With development centers located in 3 major Ukrainian IT hubs - Kyiv, Kharkiv, and Dnipro - we can help you set up a dedicated nearshore development team from scratch. 

How to Build a Nearshore Development Team with Daxx - The Process

What makes the Daxx model unique is that every developer you hire is carefully selected to meet your specific needs. We don’t have a bench, and don’t lease our own developers to you. Instead, you’ll get hand-picked specialists from a pool of pre-qualified candidates. Here is how we do it.

  1. Collecting the information on the project and its requirements. First of all, our recruitment team will get to the core of your project needs and requirements (technology stack, required experience, specific domain expertise, or background) to make sure the candidates we offer perfectly match your expectations.
  2. Research and prequalification. Once we have ascertained a good understanding of your requirements, we search our database for suitable candidates. After you receive the proposed developers’ CVs, you can evaluate the candidates and select the ones you want to interview.
  3. Interview. You will then talk to each of the pre-selected candidates personally. There are no limitations as to the number of candidates you select, or the number of interview rounds you wish to conduct.
  4. Offer. As soon as you find the right candidate, you can make an offer and start working right away. We handle the paperwork, office set up, and onboarding processes.

Your developers will work from one of our bespoke development centers in Ukraine, while our administrative teams take care of payroll and team retention.
