SquadGurus Platform Launch!

Well folks, it’s Champagne time!

We are all incredibly excited to be launching the SquadGurus platform today. We started our model and journey a year ago this month, and then began the development process in July. A little more than 5 months later, our platform is now ready for customers.

How it Works

Step 1 – Join SquadGurus as a Client

Step 2 – Load your “opportunity” into the platform or let us do that for you

Step 3 – Receive proposals from the SquadGurus Global Network of qualified and pre-vetted service providers

Step 4 – Qualify and select from the proposals with help from your Customer Success Manager

Step 5 – Contract, engage, and move forward!

It starts with your requirements.

What are you looking for and when? The SquadGurus platform allows you to post your services opportunities for our providers to see.

After posting your opportunities, the SquadGurus Global Network kicks in and provides proposals, candidates, or whatever you are looking for. Our customer success team screens the responses and helps you to narrow your search to only the best fit offers.

Here are some of the solutions the SquadGurus Global Network can deliver:

  • Software development, engineering and QA
  • Software refactoring & modernization to the cloud
  • Cloud engineering and DevOps / automation
  • Cloud migration

We will add more types of services officially in the future. However, if there’s something you’re looking for now, let us know and we’ll see if we can address your need.

What are the other requirements you have that we need to consider?

Some factors may include:

  • Time zone – nearshore vs. offshore
  • Language & culture
  • Relatable references and qualifications
  • Cost
  • Delivery models

We then publish your needs to the SquadGurus Global Network, our database of screened and vetted provider partners in multiple delivery regions, to find one or more matches. We leverage our market knowledge and network to identify a range of providers with different skills, capabilities, and capacities and match this against your requirements.

Getting Started

Join SquadGurusJoin as a Client and either use the self-service portal to begin posting your “Opportunities”, or work with your Customer Success Manager (assigned after you join) and they will help you get going.

Still not sure? Schedule an appointment to speak with SquadGurus.

Gurus News: SquadGurus Summer 2022 Part 1

First off, let’s catch up on what’s “new” at SquadGurus in 2022. Back in December we launched the SquadGurus platform and marketplace into the market.

The SquadGurus Global Network

In 2020 we learned a lot about what our clients valued in our model. The guidance and advice? Yes. Our market knowledge and network?

SquadGurus Survey – Ukraine IT Services and the War with Russia

Two years into a global pandemic, when the tech economy in Ukraine was soaring and 30% salary increases for engineers was common, Russia invaded and upended everything. This led us to conduct a survey of the market to see what was going on. The results are fascinating and point to the resilience of both the tech services market and the Ukrainian people.

We’re looking for an investor to lead our Seed round – let me know if you have any thoughts there. As for what’s next with the platform, we have a very long list of priorities.

The Case for Offshore or Nearshore Cloud Services Outsourcing

Outsourcing cloud professional services to offshore or nearshore technology services firms can offer several benefits, including access to top talent, cost savings, and increased scalability.

SquadGurus and Ukraine

As citizens of the world, we are all impacted in one way or another by these events. Our prayers, thoughts and safe wishes are with the Ukrainian people.

The Beautiful Insanity Of Starting A Business During A Global Crisis

I often get asked, usually by my fully-employed friends, why I am starting businesses during these troubled times. “Wouldn’t be better to have a salary, some security, benefits…?,”
