Why Scrums.com?

When comparing Scrums.com to traditional freelance marketplaces you need to ask yourself the following questions:

1. Time & Cost to Hire

What is the time to hire, and how much is this going to cost me? Can freelance marketplaces provide me with the resources I need in the time I need them?

Just 10 days to hire
Scrums.com has access to 100’s of vetted developers in-house, ensuring we have the developers for you. At short notice. Without any hiring costs.
Freelance Marketplace

1-3 Weeks
Traditional freelance platforms are like the wild-west. Everyone is a self-proclaimed “expert” and finding the perfect fit for you can take weeks or even months, costing you time and money.

2. Team Cost

What is my team going to cost me? Can freelance marketplaces provide me with quality developers at competitive prices?

We have direct access to top talent In lower cost jurisdictions. Through these lower costs we are able to beat your down the road supplier on price. Whilst competing on price, our quality promises a consistency of delivery.

3. Timezone Overlap

Will my team overlap with my time zone and be able to communicate with me during my normal working hours?

Scrums.com ensures that your team will always overlap your time zone by a minimum of 4 hours daily. We encourage you to use this for all necessary scrum ceremonies and communications.

Freelance Marketplace

You have limited control over what your freelancer does with their time. This often means they will be working outside your working hours with very little communication.

4. Scalability

Will my team be scalable? Can I increase or decrease my team size with ease?

The Scrums.com subscription model allows you to decide on your subscription package as your business evolves both from a scale-up and scale-down perspective. Essentially the model provides you with the ability to infinitely scale your engineering capacity at the speed you need.
Freelance Marketplace

Freelance marketplaces offer no scalability at all. Any scalability will require either hiring/firing of resources.

5. Guaranteed Quality

When hiring my team, how am I guaranteed quality resources?

Our stringent vetting processes (technical, psychometric and cultural) ensure that only the best in class individuals are hired into our ecosystem. This means that you can trust your hand-picked team to deliver on your quality expectations.
Freelance Marketplace

Hiring a developer through a freelance marketplace is like rolling the dice, there is no guarantee on quality. Developers are not vetted, and often what you see on paper can be deceiving.
