Nearshore & Offshore Software Developers are Key to Overcoming Talent Drought

As the hiring wars heat up, western companies should be considering nearshore or offshore sourcing as a remedy for the software development talent drought.

If you believe that “software is eating the world,” as Marc Andreessen suggests, you’ll understand why the software talent shortage is approaching a crisis. With such a global appetite for software, demand for developers far outstrips supply, especially as more companies stake their futures on digital transformation.

Truly, there’s a pressing need for developers at all skill levels, while at the same time, there’s a shortage of world-class talent. But how tight is the market?

In 2015, there were some 2.5 million IT job openings in the United States, including software development – more than at any time since 2001, based on intelligence from President Barack Obama and his administration. However, tens of thousands of advertised jobs for app developers, software engineers, and data scientists go unfilled. Some postings for apps developers, for instance, have been open 30 days or longer, according to Glassdoor.

“The IT skills shortage is dire, and we are seeing companies compete more than ever for this talent,” says Bob Miano, USAPAC president and CEO of global recruitment firm Harvey Nash. And in the contest for talent, your odds aren’t good, unless you’re in a preferred location or able to offer premium compensation.
