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.
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.
