Cost Comparison – Offshore VS Onshore Teams

Cost Comparison Offshore Vs Onshore Teams

 

Offshoring has become really popular, especially when it comes to web and mobile development. This is a trend mostly observed in recent times where companies have wanted to focus on their core business processes.

Hiring an experienced developer in the US/UK/Europe costs upwards of $100,000/annum including salary and other benefits. A similar resource from India would cost around $20,000. This is one fifth cost of hiring in-house teams.  it definitely makes more business sense to hire a team of developers working offshore, at the cost of a single developer who works in-house. This is not all offshoring saves on the following addition costs:

  1. Employment benefits
  2. Space and infrastructure
  3. Costs of hiring and retention

According to Indeed the average a software developer in the US is $95k.

Disadvantages of hiring in-house teams include:

  1. One has to comply with employment regulation in the US
