Software engineering resource is expensive and hard to come by these days. Certainly here in the San Francisco Bay Area there is intense competition for talent with Google, Facebook, Apple and Salesforce soaking up much of what is available, with hundreds of startups scrambling for whoever is left over.
Offshoring is sometimes suggested as a solution, whether to Europe, Russia and the Ukraine, or India and Pakistan. The problem is that collaboration can be extremely difficult. Apart from language barriers, there are often problems with time zones, cultural misunderstandings and simple miscommunication.
Over the last 12 months we at mThinkDigital have worked with a company here in San Francisco that takes a hybrid approach. EuroCal is a company that appears to offer the best of both worlds with an American management team based here in San Francisco supported by a 250-strong engineering office in Europe. Over the course of three different projects we have been impressed with the speed of implementation and the quality of the work, so if you’re looking for engineering resource – for software development, mobile apps, database engineering, data security, etc. – then EuroCal is worth a call.
EuroCal provides Software engineering services to suit the needs of your organization. Based in San Francisco, EuroCal provides research, development and delivery centers with sales offices across Europe and North America. They work with blue chip companies and established firms across the globe, as well as assisting start-ups and SMEs who’ve chosen to augment their resources by outsourcing to them.
