Learn more about this hiring model.


Staff augmentation

Staff augmentation is a strategy for hiring specialized skills for specific projects. In this format, it is possible to add temporary or permanent talent to internal teams, allowing you to fill gaps in the team quickly, accelerating project development and keeping productivity high. Softo's staff augmentation modality ensures more project flexibility, since hires are based on hours and are not limited to a single resource. Thus, the client can access other resources available on Softo's team on an ad hoc basis, if so desired. In addition, the client does not need to worry about costs and processes related to hiring its own employees, which gives more agility and less operational risks. Softo strives for the success of the client's project, in a management model that is not limited to just allocating and managing resources, but makes available all the knowledge and experience of our team in software projects.

Know the benefits

Staff Augmentation Features

We recruit the best professionals according to your project needs, which increases performance and productivity, with a full-time focus on your project.

Hiring a new employee brings a lot of responsibilities, such as salaries, taxes, and benefits. With an extended staff, you only pay for the hours worked, and your business partner handles other aspects such as vacations and sick leave for the excess professionals.

Staff augmentation offers the integration of employees with diverse backgrounds, allowing the introduction of new ideas and perspectives into a project, which can help a company to stand out and innovate.

With staff augmentation, project and product managers find a more dynamic and easier way to tailor their development team to the current needs of their projects, without having to fire and hire internal employees.
