There is a war on IT talent in Belgium and because of that, it’s difficult to find experienced developers who can take the lead in web & software development. Also, as a startup, Jonathan, the CEO of Dynamitt, found it difficult to attract high level developers who were willing to grow with the company. Because of the talent shortage, he looked for a solution that could provide him a team of experts outside Belgium’s regular job market.
“An important value is open communication. When you work with a remote team, this is crucial. If there are some frustrations for example, you have to address them immediately. You don’t have to be afraid to speak up even if you are not in the same room.”
Multiple requirements have been analyzed until Jonathan took the decision of extending his team to MD.
1. Timezone- similar to the Belgium one, because communication is highly valued for him during the day.
2. Knowledge & flexibility- Jonathan has a ton of ideas and with each idea a new tech stack comes into play. He was looking for a partner who could help him with the right talents.
3. Excellent service- going the extra mile to achieve a better result is his credo and that was what he expects from his partners.
4. Trust – long distance collaborations always require one thing and that is trust. Without trust it would be impossible to build an external team.
