We live in an increasingly complex world, where the majority of companies struggle to find enough of IT professionals locally.
Recent studies by the European Union show that by 2020 the gap between supply and demand of ICT specialists in Europe will grow to about half a million people per year.
Current trend amongst IT people is to be able to work from home for at least 1 or 2 days per week but there is also a huge demand to find people capable to do the job on a fully remote basis. If we rewind the time back to the beginning of this century, a typical team of IT specialists would usually be based in an office set up to deal with a particular project.
With development of technologies, cloud computing, security tools, time and project management applications we have a completely different working environment now.
This is the moment, where our company can become an asset to your organisation and speed up the process of hiring, especially where the virtual teams can do the job cheaper and with a much faster responsiveness to business needs. Remotely managed teams are more agile, quite often happier and with a lower turnover of staff compared to a typical office based job scenario.
There are no geographical limitations and the pool of talent at your disposal becomes better and cheaper. It is also a much more crisis proof scenario where the employer can react and change the set up.
Our recent survey of IT professionals provided an interesting analysis of the candidates preferences. The bigger the distance from the office the more likely it is for an IT consultant to be interested or already working in the partially or fully remote working scenarios.
They are also more likely to opt for choosing similar offers in the future and rarely decide to go back to a fully office based or mobile positions if they have a choice. They are often willing to compromise their salary conditions for a better work-life balance and apart from traveling expenses or time spent commuting they also mention better efficiency or even things like access go home made quality of meals (especially vegetarian or vegan people).
According to the survey results, these are the most common jobs suitable for partially or fully remote scenario:
Frontend Developer, Ruby Developer , Java Developer, .Net Developer, ABAP Developer, BI Developer, Hybris Developer, QA Engineer, IT Support, System Administrator / System Engineer, Database Administrator / Database Developer, SEO Specialist, Android Developer, iOS Developer, DevOps Engineer, Game Designer and many others.
