The ability to quickly adapt and scale development teams can make or break a project. Whether launching a new feature, tackling a complex problem, or scaling up for a high-stakes project, having the right talent at the right time is crucial. However, hiring new talent and ensuring they have the right skills and experience for your project is very time-consuming, not to mention expensive.

This is where team augmentation comes into play, offering a flexible and efficient solution to meet dynamic project demands. In this post, we'll explore team augmentation as a service and its advantages for your project.

Morrow is a leading provider of team augmentation services within React Native, Expo and Supabase. Known for its strict vetting process and a pool of skilled developers proficient in the latest technologies. Contact us today to discuss your project.

What is Team Augmentation?

Team augmentation is a strategic approach to staffing that allows organisations to bring in external talent to complement their existing dev teams. 

Instead of finding, hiring, and training new developers, you gain access to an experienced software engineer for as long as you need them. These engineers are vetted and trained by the agency first to ensure they have the skills needed and will have worked on various different projects and technologies. 

What is the difference between Team Augmentation and a full app development agency service?

When using a development agency to work on your project, you will often be presented with various options. A full service will include the complete package tailored to your specific needs: project management, full-stack technical strategy, ongoing support, and ongoing maintenance after the app is developed. You don't need an in-house team; fully trained experts will get your project off the ground fast, and you won’t need to manage them yourself, as the agency’s project manager will do that for you. 

However, this option is not for everyone: Team Augmentation is a great option if you’re happy to have a more hands-on approach. It works like this: you "borrow" a software engineer for as long as you need them. You don't have to find, hire and train a new team member - they're already vetted by the agency and ready to jump right in to support your existing team for as long as you need them.

Is Team Augmentation right for your project?

In short, if you have the budget, go for the complete package. Your project will be in safe hands with minimised risks. Industry experts with years of experience will ensure the project runs smoothly from start to finish and will provide you with ongoing support, testing, and guidance.

However, if your project is still in the early stages and you don't have enough in the bank, or if you have an existing team but need an extra pair of hands to, let's say, move your app to the most recent Expo SDK, team augmentation is the way to go.
