As one of the biggest players in the industry, Schuberg Philis is already trusted by many clients. And that number keeps growing. In fact, the amount of clients was increasing so much that Schuberg Philis needed to expand. But the Dutch market for high-skilled and experienced DevOps engineers is limited, unfortunately. Finding the right people to work on Schuberg Philis’ high-level projects and meet their clients’ demands proved quite the challenge.
Moreover, many clients of Schuberg Philis also require their data to stay in Europe and therefore Typeqast was the perfect solution. Together with Typeqast they decided to experiment with nearshoring.
At the very beginning of the collaboration, the Schuberg Philis team went to the Typeqast office in Croatia to meet the team. In the summer of 2019, Schuberg Philis started their nearshoring trial with their first Typeqast engineer, and they have been extending their own team with Typeqast engineers every couple of months.
Every Typeqast team member has been interviewed by Schuberg Philis’ team, as if they were joining the Schuberg Philis company. Both teams work closely together in a hybrid form of in-house and nearshoring. It is important for Schuberg Philis to be able to scale up or down whenever needed, and with Typeqast they are now able to do so.
With the expansion of the team through the nearshoring solution of Typeqast, the issue of finding skilled developers has been solved.
Since the start of the collaboration, Schuberg Philis has a nice team of Typeqast developers running and is working with them on several projects for, among other projects, PostNL, Heineken and Leaseplan. Schuberg Philis started with one Typeqaster and has grown their team of Typeqasters now to 5! Both teams really enjoy working together, and are even looking for more DevOps engineers to grow even further.
