Take a look at Exadel; operating since 1998, with software development centers in Eastern Europe, as well as US. We develop business applications for Enterprise and mid-large companies.
Hi there, the topic really turned out to be quite spam. Your question is quite complicated to be honest. Could you describe in general your startup or at least a product you want to develop?
I've tried many different ways to develop an application. Freelancers - unreliable (not all), development company - expensive. Eventually, I found solution in advertisement on my mail. There was something about IT outsourcing.
I have googled and find many companies proposing outsourcing software development all over the world. Naturally such a solution also requires constant supervision and attention, but much less for me in comparison with other methods.
I went through a lot of options and I can tell you exactly what is best to look for. Pay attention and monitor Eastern Europe. Believe me, I know what I'm talking about! Cheap, fast, professional. I ordered application development from Cyber Craft. They got me an excellent small team for my tasks.
But it is not necessary to address them specifically. There are many other companies. I think you can really build a team in Eastern Europe for your specific needs for small amount of money.
By the way, have you already decided, which company to address your specific product? I think the community will be interested to know.
Check this out www.crew.co. they might be able to help.
Dear Asad, This willn't be an objective answer, but frank. Search in Eastern Europe: Poland, Russia, Ukraine, etc.
All those sites are just spray and pray services. Everyone and anyone is on them. I have found some great people on a couple of such sites. But i had to trawl over hours and days through tenders from complete muppets - literally hundreds of them. It is real needle in a haystack stuff that brings tears to your eyes.
So instead it seems to me that sites like this should be the place. A slightly curated list of people who arent just developers, but have that something extra that makes them want to be a cofounder and give more than just a 9-5 at £25/hour.
