When you think about hiring employees in other countries, you may be thinking of that time you hired offshore engineers or teams that ended up costing more than you expected, or taking longer than you anticipated, or simply lacked the quality you needed. You may be thinking of how difficult it was to schedule a meeting, and how challenging the communication was with the developers you hired; you might even remember how you had to send back seemingly finished projects because some specification wasn’t understood or a change wasn’t properly made.
And all of this is putting you off from hiring near shore programmers. But wait…
