To succeed in modern-day business, you need technology solutions that are stable, fast, and reliable. Get your solutions wrong, and you put your entire organization at risk thanks to a poor technology stack that cannot support your ambitions.
The Java application stack is the go-to solution for backend development for many businesses. Java is a programming language that’s stable, incredibly easy to use, and effortlessly scalable for growing businesses. But like most things in software development, Java technology is only successful if you have the right application development teams to build it.
1 – Understand Your Software Development Goals
Before thinking about how you’ll build your Java team, the first thing to do is fully understand your software development goals, milestones, and objectives. Taking this step back helps you plan out exactly what needs to be done, by when, and what you ultimately hope to achieve.
Consider some of these questions to help you define your goals and requirements:
- Is this a new or existing software requirement?
- What is this application designed to do? What value does it bring to your business?
- What’s your budget for this application?
- When will this development need to be completed?
- Is this a simple or complex development? What level of software engineer / software developers will you need? What are your expectations in terms of team composition?
- Will the application only based on Java, or will there be another programming language too?
Answering these questions will help you set the foundation as you begin to plan your team
2 – In-House vs. Outsourced – How to Hire Java Developers?
Now that you know your software development requirements, it’s time to think about how you will deliver them. If you have the expertise, you may already know the Java skills and knowledge you need to get the job done. But the likelihood is you won’t have this knowledge in-house, and it’s even more likely you won’t have the right resources.
If this is the case, hiring ready-to-go external team is an excellent solution for you. Given Java specialists are in high demand right now, organizations see a range of benefits by engaging with an expert partner to deliver their end-to-end Java software team.
If your software project is a short to medium-term endeavor, a development team delivery option becomes even more attractive, as you benefit from fast onboarding of expert resources while still maintaining flexibility on cost – something you won’t achieve with an internal team!
3 – Let us Know Your Java Development Team Requirement
Once you’ve decided an IT partnership is the way to go, it’s time to contact us at Inetum to discuss your requirement. We’ll work collaboratively with you to advise on:
- The best shape and size for your Java software development team
- The typical responsibilities of a Java developer
- The right blend of Java architects, senior Java developers, mid-career engineers, and team leaders
- The technical pre-requisites such as Java code best practices, the need for a Java virtual machine, or a development environment
- Latest insights and trends from the Java community
We’ll ensure we fully understand your project and what you need from a Java development team to succeed. To do this, we consider everything from how many Java developers you’ll need through to any Java tools that support your wider software environment (e.g. IDEs, build tools, Continuous Integration tools, and version control systems).
4 – We Deliver a High-Performing Java Team
It’s at this stage that the Inetum end-to-end Java team model delivers you the most value. Upon your confirmation, we’ll provide you with a fully dedicated team of Java experts within 6 weeks – that’s the Inetum guarantee.
Here are some of the benefits of using the Inetum offer to build your Java team:
- There’s no need to hire a Java developer as we hire dedicated resources for your team.
- We manage every aspect of the Java developer’s roles and responsibilities.
- We manage all the developer’s personal administration, including salary, personal development, and performance.
- We help developers through the project onboarding process.
- We equip all Java engineers with the required hardware (WP workstations, two monitors, and software licenses.)
An on-demand software development team in 6 weeks
By default, we build 6-person Java development teams of:
- 1 Team Leader,
- 2 Senior Java Engineers,
- 3 Regular Java Developers.
This gives you the perfect blend of professional Java expertise while balancing cost and performance. Our developers must complete a rigorous round of assessments, including live coding assessments written in Java, so you know you’re getting the very best talent on the market.
All of our developers build Java solutions under the supervision of an Inetum Project Manager, who’s also responsible for team coaching, personal development, and issues management. Our Project Managers interface directly with our customers ensuring the best results from the first moment of collaboration.
To complete our expert Java team, all we ask from the partner side is for someone to assume the role of Product Owner to provide details of the project and set milestones for tasks and workload. This ensures you’re always in control of the project, providing us with must know information to deliver the best results.
All of this is billed on a T&M basis with prices fixed for 12 months. Of course, if you need a larger or more bespoke team, this can be discussed separately.
5 – Get Started, Learn, and Grow Together
Under your direction, we manage your dedicated Java team day-to-day, ensuring the quality of the Java programming, the ongoing development of the Java developer skill sets, and the delivery of your project against our agreed milestones.
As we learn and grow together, we’ll continually work to enhance your application’s performance, looking for ways to improve the development process, leverage the power of Java enterprise, and help you towards Java certification if required. The skills and experience of our team will give you the comfort that you’re in the best hands from day one. In the rare instance you’re unhappy with a Java developer we have provided, both you as the partner and Inetum have the right to exchange an engineer with a 1-month notice period.
