Buyers' Guide to Hire Software Developers: Location, Cost, Skills

Having second thoughts about whether or not to hire software developers in 2024?

Well, with low code and no code platform mushrooming and AI development tools such as ChatGpt, Github Pilot, and more assisting software developers in a major way, the demand for software developers has grown dim, it may seem.

But then, nothing could be further from the truth. On the contrary, some reports suggest that the US is experiencing a software developer shortage, which means it has no choice but to open its doors to developers from other countries.

In fact, businesses in the U.S. are hiring software developers from cost-effective destinations. If you are wondering which cost-effective nations you should approach for your current or upcoming software development projects, this guide is specifically for you.

But before we give you an idea about the best places to hire software developers, let’s first understand the factors that drive software development costs in 2024 and how location plays a crucial role in cutting software development costs.

Factors that Drive Software Development Costs in 2024

Several factors influence software development costs, such as the features and functionality required, the tech stack, experience, and the size of the software development team. Let's examine each one in detail.

Features & Functionality Requirements

Not all software development projects have the same features and functionality requirements. Generally, a software development project can be divided into three types regarding features and functionality requirements: simple, medium complex, and highly complex. Companies on a low budget start with a Minimal Viable Product (MVP), which contains only basic features to validate concepts and perform testing. The exact cost of your software development project depends on the density of the features and the complexity of the functionality it includes.

Platform Requirements

Are you planning to build a web app or a mobile application? If it is a mobile app, do you need a native app for Android and iOS platforms or a cross-platform mobile app? The answers to these questions can help you determine the cost of your software development project.

Techstack

A tech stack is a combination of technologies used to build software. Below are examples of backend and frontend technologies included in software development projects.

  • Backend Development - Database, Framework, Programming Language, Server, Operating System
  • Frontend Development - Javascript, CSS, HTML, User's Device/Browser

The tech stack combines backend and frontend technology you select to build your software development project. The right technology selected by software developers can save time in the development process, ultimately reducing software development costs.

Size and Experience of the Software Development Team

A larger-sized software development team can cost more, but you can complete the project more quickly. A smaller software development team can cost less, but your project would take longer.

You can hire an experienced team of software developers to achieve flawless outcomes, but that will cost you more than hiring freshers. Hiring inexperienced software developers can increase the chances of reworking a project, which will again lead to increased costs.

Hiring overqualified developers or more developers can unnecessarily increase the cost of software development, and on the other hand, hiring fewer developers or inexperienced developers can impact the quality of your software. You end up paying more for its testing and reworks.

So, ultimately, you need to hire a team of software developers with skills, experience, and expertise that match your project requirements.

UI/UX Design Complexities

The complexities of UI/UX design can add to the final cost of your software development project. If you use pre-designed templates for your software, the total development cost would be lower. On the other hand, hiring a team of UI/UX developers to customize your software development product's design can increase your project's overall cost.

Pricing Model - (Hourly, Monthly, One-Time)

Software development companies follow different pricing models, such as hourly, monthly, and one-time. Let's learn more about these pricing models:

  • Hourly: Software developers in the US are paid around $30-$70/hour. These rates can vary depending on the experience level of software developers and the country where they reside. For example, a junior-level software developer from the US can be more expensive to hire than a senior-level software developer from India.
  • Monthly: Similar to hourly charges, many software developers prefer getting paid every month. The average monthly wage of a software builder in the US is around $7,500-$12,625, depending on their experience and specialized skills. The monthly salary of a software developer may vary depending on the countries in which they reside.
  • One-Time: Companies that follow this pricing model offer a fixed rate for the project, from design and development to maintenance. The fixed-rate depends on the tech stack used, the number of team members working on the project, and the software developers' experience, expertise, and location.

Thus, the cost of your project depends on the pricing model you are following and the experience level and geographical location of the software developers you are hiring.

Testing

Investing in skilled quality assurance resources and tools may add to your overall software development cost, but saving on these costs can become stressful in the long run. Detecting and solving issues in the early stages of software development is better than fixing bugs in a finished software project. The latter option consumes more time and money. Rework in software functionality and fixing post-launch bugs requires investing more in robust QA tools and hiring experienced QA testers and thus can prove to be expensive.

Maintenance & Updates

Maintaining your software is important to ensure that it aligns with current and future market trends. After launching a software development project, it is required to spend on its maintenance and support services. Maintenance and update costs are integral to any software's consistent performance and success and, thus, should be an integral part of your software development cost budget plan.

Hiring Model - (In-House, Freelancers, Professional Company)

Businesses follow different hiring models. Let me give you a brief information about each one of them.

  • Hiring In-House Software Developers: In this hiring model, companies hire software developers within their organization and pay them weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.
  • Hiring Freelance software developers: Companies hire freelancers for their software development projects and pay them hourly or a fixed price per project, as the freelancer and the project owner decide.
  • Hiring Professional Company: In this hiring model, companies delegate their entire project to a professional software development company. The software development company quotes the project's cost, which is agreed upon by the project owner.

The exact cost of a software development project depends on whether you are hiring in-house software developers or freelancers or outsourcing the entire project to a professional software development company. The cost also depends on the geographical location of the freelancers or software development company you are outsourcing your project to.

The hiring model is a major factor in the software development cost. Needless to say, hiring in-house software developers is a highly expensive proposition compared to outsourcing your software requirements to cost-effective destinations.

Why, you may ask? Here’s a detailed take on in-house hiring vs outsourcing software development needs.

Why You Shouldn’t Think of Hiring In-house Software Developers At All in 2024

Hiring in-house software developers is a costly proposition. You don’t have to manage recruitment, training, and salary costs alone; expenses such as office space and infrastructure must also be addressed.

Pros and Cons of Hiring In-House Software Developers

Pros

  • Investment in skills profits businesses in the long run
  • Shared working hours result in better collaboration
  • Highly invested workforce
  • Better control over the development process

Cons

  • Continually growing overhead expense
  • Lack of requisite skills
  • Overtime can cause burnout

Pros and Cons of Outsourcing Software Development

Pros

  • Cost-effective
  • Hire developers as per your requirements
  • Availability of expert developers
  • Stickler to deadlines
  • Reduced In-house workload

Cons

  • Miscommunication
  • Less control over the development process
  • Less commitment from employees
  • Impacts company culture negatively

Rough Cost Estimate to Hire Inhouse Software Developers in the US:

Recruiting & Training: $5,000 - $20,000 per developer

Salaries & Benefits: A Junior Developer charges $65,280 - $1,59,360 annually (based on the Texas junior developer cost). Benefits are 30-50% on top of salary.

Office Space & Infrastructure: A ballpark figure for a small team could be $5,000- $10,000 per month. The exact figure varies depending on location and team size.

Management Team Salary: Management salaries can range from $80,000 - $150,000 annually, depending on experience and team size.

Rough Cost Estimate When You Rope in Software Development Outsourcing Companies in India

Junior Developer: $15 - $35 per hour
Mid-Level Developer: $30 - $55 per hour
Senior Developer: $50+ per hour

Project Management cost: $10 - $20 per hour

Communication Overhead: Tools like Slack or Zoom might cost $5 - $10 per month per user.

Suppose your project runs for 6 months with 2 developers on site. Then, let’s see how the in-house team stacks up against the outsourcing team.

In-House (Team of 2 developers):

  • Recruiting & Training: ($5,000 X2 developers) = $10,000
  • Salaries & Benefits: $65,280 annual x 2 developer x 0.5 (6 months) = $65,280
  • Benefits (30% on salary): $19,584
  • Office Space & Infrastructure: $30,000 (assuming $5,000 per month)
  • Management Overhead (assuming one manager): $40,000 (half of the annual salary)

Total Estimated Cost to hire in-house software developers: $134,894


Outsourced (Team of 2 developers - mid-level):

  • Outsourcing Fees: $20 per hour x 2 developers x 8 hours/day x 20 days/month x 6 months = $38,400
  • Project Management: $6.47 per hour  per hour x 2 developers 8 hours/day x 20 days/month x 6 months = $12,422.4
  • Communication Overhead: $10 per month per user x 4 users (2 developers + 2 client side) x 6 months = $240 (total)

Total Estimated Cost when you rope in software development outsourcing companies in India: $51,052

Bottomline: India is 70% cheaper than the US when it comes to software development

The difference in cost between hiring in-house software developers and outsourcing to a team in India is almost like day and night, which is nearly impossible to bridge, no matter how hard you try. Outsourcing should be your go-to option for software development in 2024.

Besides India, here are the other best places to hire software developers.

How to Choose the Best Place to Hire Software Developers: 9 Key Points

When choosing the best country for hiring software developers, you must consider several factors.

  • Developer Salary: Countries with lower developer costs might be attractive, but it shouldn’t be at the expense of quality.
  • Developer Talent: Your top priority should be countries with a large talent pool of skilled software engineers with expertise in the latest technologies, such as Blockchain, AI, MI, and similar technologies. You should also consider the quality of the education system, English proficiency, and cultural compatibility.
  • Time Zone Difference: The time zone difference between India and the USA is huge; for instance, India is 9 hours and 30 minutes ahead of Washington, DC. So, if you are a USA-based business interested in hiring Indian software developers, communication and collaboration could be an issue unless you have scheduled a specific time for the same purpose.
  • Cultural Alignment: Differences in work ethics, communication styles, and, for that matter, business practices could create a rift between working partners. So make sure that you and the hired hands have at least a few things, if not more, in common before you sign a contract with them. This way, if an issue arises, there’s still a chance that your contract will not go off the rails.
  • Intellectual Property Protection: The country where you plan to hire software developers should be known for its strong laws and regulations. Why, if you ask? Because it’s crucial to protect your proprietary software and sensitive information.
  • Political and Economic Stability: An unstable government and economy can pose problems for your outsourcing arrangement. So, make sure you hire software developers from a country with a stable political and economic environment.
  • Legal and Regulatory Environment: When choosing an outsourcing destination, you should be aware of tax laws, data protection regulations, and, more importantly, contract enforcement mechanisms.
  • Past Performance and References: Check with other companies about their experience in outsourcing their software development needs to the country in question.
  • Government Support and Incentives: Some countries proactively encourage and engage with foreign businesses, offering incentives and support for their outsourcing requirements. So check whether this country you plan to outsource has similar government initiatives and incentives.

Considering all these factors, you can zero down the best country for hiring software developers.

Software Interview Questions to Keep Ready While Hiring Software Developers

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle), and what are its phases?

SDLC, or Software Development Life Cycle, is a systematic process for building top-quality software quickly and cost-effectively. SDLC has seven phases, which are:

  • Outlining the requirements
  • Analyzing
  • Architectural Designing
  • Software development
  • Software Testing/auditing
  • Deployment
  • Maintenance

What is a custom software development company?

As the name suggests, a custom software development company provides customized software services solutions to businesses specifically and uniquely tailored to their needs. They deliver top-quality software solutions uniquely designed and developed considering the client's requirements. They can also redesign existing software to personalize and improve its functioning, productivity, and performance.

What are the different types of software development methodologies?

Mainly, there are four types of software development methodologies: Agile, DevOps, Waterfall, and Rapid application development.

  • Agile: Agile software development is more flexible. It is carried out in iteration. So, it is easy to make changes in a specific module without affecting or interfering with the entire development process. Various forms of agile development include Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), feature-driven development (FDD), and Crystal.
  • DevOps Development: The DevOps software development process integrates both the software development team + IT operations for faster and continuous code development. The idea behind DevOps is to improve efficiency throughout the development cycle while minimizing risks and reducing costs.
  • Waterfall: Waterfall is a traditional software development methodology, and it is carried out in a sequential manner. It is essential that each phase in a waterfall model must be fully completed before beginning the next step. Its linear nature makes the development process slow and costly.
  • Rapid application development (RAD): Rapid application development focuses on quick software development with less emphasis on planning. The modules are created based on rapid prototyping and iterative development methods.

Other popular software development methodologies are the prototype method, lean method, and dynamic system development model.

What services do software development companies provide?

Software development agencies provide a wide range of services right from consulting, planning, front-end design, back-end development, deployment, testing, etc. Popular services include custom software development, mobile app development, web development, IT security services, infrastructure development, etc. Most of the best software development companies offer a complete set of customized development solutions. They can also help with software testing, app maintenance, API development and integration, data backup and recovery, software deployment, software migration, system integration, cloud computing, DevOps automation, prototyping, maintenance and support services.

Which programming language do software developers use?

Software developers use different programming languages depending upon the project's complexity, functionalities, back end and front-end needs. For front-end software development, developers mostly use HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Software development service providers mainly rely on PHP, C++, Python, Java and Node.js for back-end development purposes. Apart from these, other languages that are popularly used based on the project requirements are Ruby, Scala, Kotlin, Django, Dart, Golang, etc.

Best software developers use a wide variety of programming languages, depending on the type of software they are developing and the specific tasks they need to accomplish. Some of the most popular programming languages among software developers include:

  1. Java: Being the oldest, Java is an exemplary server-side application development language. It first offered the revolutionary concept of WORA, "write once, run anywhere." The software developers access the numerous tools and technology the Java library provides to build robust, complex, and scalable server-side software. Its popularity is also due to its high cross-platform compatibility.
  2. PHP: PHP is an object-oriented programming language. There is an extensive range of open-source PHP frameworks. These frameworks enable the addition of sophisticated features and functionalities into the app without writing prolonged codes. Multiple PHP development tools enhance efficiency during coding. It also speeds up customized app development while simplifying maintenance.
  3. Python: Python has advanced to become one of the major web programming languages in this era. Many academic institutes have incorporated Python as a premier software development language for creating Artificial Intelligence and machine learning-based applications. Python can function as an object-oriented scripting language for a large project.
  4. C#: C# follows the concept of C. Hence, developers with an understanding of C Programming can effortlessly grasp the concepts of C# as well. It is easily integrated with Windows, making it a prime language for web application and cross-application development. Unlike its namesake, C/C++, C# does not permit pointer types, making it safer.
  5. JavaScript: For over five years, most software developers, to some extent, have used JavaScript to code the application. JavaScript is a powerful scripting language that allows developers to decide on suitable features to incorporate within the software. It helps create interactive software applications by developing apt UI for the client and server sides. The most significant advantage of using this language is that it is compatible with all browsers.

What frameworks do software development companies generally use for development?

A few popular frameworks full-stack software development agencies use include Laravel, Meteor, React JS, Node JS and Express.js, Django, Spring Boot, Graph QL, Ruby on Rails, Flask, jQuery, and Symphony. Each framework is unique and different in its features and is selected based on factors like programming language support, ready-to-use components, speed, security, scalability, and performance.

How do AI and cloud computing help to improve software development projects?

Technologies like AI and cloud computing have helped software development projects improve to a large extent. AI has proved to be a game changer for software development companies, speeding up the development and testing process with strategic and more informed decisions. With precise estimates and access to real-time feedback, AI can help developers build world-class software solutions. The adoption of cloud computing greatly reduces the cost of expensive hardware. Also, cloud computing assists developers in building scalable and flexible products.

How to find a leading software development company?

It is vital to thoroughly analyze the best software development companies to find the ideal partner. However, weighing their capabilities without knowing which selection criteria to study can be challenging. While shortlisting a software development company, consider the following benchmarks:

  • Expertise: Most companies have a clear idea of the type of platform and technology stack they plan on incorporating into their software before the start of the project. Therefore, they must hire software developers with a specific skill set and specialize in using those software development tools and technologies. For example, to create software in Java programming, consider selecting the best software development company with expert Java developers with extensive knowledge of the top Java Frameworks such as Apache Nutch, Drools, AppFuse, etc.
  • Experience: Decision-makers must opt for the best custom software development company that possesses hands-on experience in projects related to their industry. For instance, if a firm plans to develop an eCommerce application, choose top software developers with previous experience designing such software. This way, businesses can ensure the software quality satisfies their requirements. Moreover, while outsourcing, clients must focus on service providers with previous experience working with remote teams. This offers insight into their ability to handle off-shore projects.
