Offshore Staffing Center

What is OSC?

Some of our clients have research and development force and they can sort out clear requirements or even create a design, however, because of lacking sufficient developers, they will need an OSC (Offshore Staffing Center) to provide them with independent developers. While working with OSC, these clients themselves will act as project manager or architect. They will assign separate tasks to Nova's developers, fully control the project process and require these developers to report daily work progress to them. Nova uses Agile as the main development methodology.

OSC features

    Clients can easily find out what the developers are doing with developers' daily work reports and live chats on IM.

How to build an OSC?

  1. Understand clients' requirements as for about technologies, work experience etc.
  2. Nova recommends suitable developers and provides their CVs for clients' preliminary review.
  3. If the client is interested in the candidates, then the candidates will work on real tasks for a trial period, usually one week. In this way, clients can examine the true capability before committing to any contracts.
  4. Enter into service contract.

Q&A about OSC

How much does your developer cost?

The rates of Nova's developers are determined by their capabilities. We can promise that our rates are the most reasonable and competitive in the market. There is a wide range of our rates and the floor rate is $15 per hour.

What happens if the developer is off sick?

Every developer enjoys one-day vacation per month. If the developer takes off more than 1 day in one month (off sick or other matters), then we will deduct the daily cost and remedy you accordingly.

What happens if the developer leaves the team?

If a developer has to leave the team due to various reasons after he took part in the development, Nova will offer at least 1-week for knowledge transferring for free. During this week, the successor will work with the current developer and familiarize the working process, project architecture and different technologies which are specifically required by the project. After we make sure the new developer can fully take over the responsibility, we will formally announce him joining the team.
