Why should Vietnam be chosen to hire offshore developers?


Why should Vietnam be chosen to hire offshore developers?

While proceeding with projects such as IT development, there may be cases where you may say, "There are not enough human resources with technical capabilities" or "I cannot find a good subcontractor." In such cases, your solution is to use an offshore developer.


Currently, there are various options for offshore developers, such as China, India, and the Philippines, but in recent years Vietnam has been receiving a lot of attention. Moreover, when compared to this country, Vietnam has emerged as a relatively new market with affordable prices, well-trained IT workers, and more supportive policies.


Vietnam has provided more incentives and amendments to attract more investors to the high-tech industry. Despite the negative effects of Pandemic Covid 19, Vietnam's IT industry continues to thrive. Therefore, Vietnam stands out as a promising land for companies to set up their own development teams.

1. Vietnam as a leading offshore development center

1.1. Top of the Tholons Global Innovation Country Index

Vietnam is proudly ranked as the 9th largest digital nation in the Tholons Global Services Index 2020. And Vietnam aims to lead the digital nations and economies in the ASEAN region by 2030, enabling them to test new technologies in the domestic digital industry.


1.2. IT and technology foreign investment companies

Currently, Vietnam has about 45,500 companies in the ICT industry, including foreign investment companies. According to the Ministry of Information and Communication, the estimated total revenue of the ICT industry is about US $126 billion. 


1.3. Staff with high skills and affordable prices

In Vietnam, fees for hiring offshore developers range from $10 to $25 per hour. Other Asian countries, such as India and China, are required to pay $18 to $50 per hour for the same range of work. The cost to get a skilled developer with 4 years of experience is about US $2,000.


1.4. Workforce with English proficiency

Vietnamese IT workers have virtually decent English proficiency. According to the 2014 English Proficiency Index, Vietnam ranked second in the world for the most English-speaking IT workforce in 2014 and fifth in Asia, with the fastest improvement in English skills. This allows you to set up a dedicated development team in Vietnam without facing communication barriers.


1.5. Dedicated development team

Vietnamese are expected to work 6 days a week, 8 hours a day. However, many IT workers typically spend much more time on their jobs than under current legal restrictions. The majority of Vietnamese software developers believe that coding isn't just about doing things at work or during working hours. 76.2% of survey respondents said they were coding outside of work.


Over 50% of Vietnamese offshore developers under the age of 30 usually try to learn something new within a few months. I'm excited to adapt the new knowledge to every project they deal with.



2. Tips for hiring offshore developers

2.1. Consideration of requirements

Based on research and data, Vietnam is a useful proposal for hiring offshore developers. Each project has different requirements to suit its business model and goals. Therefore, before choosing a country as the final choice, you need to understand what to expect.


2.2. Research

Research is an essential step in improving the quality of future dedicated development teams. Besides, the numbers and data are within your reach. Make the most of research, journal guidelines, and consultants to validate your analytical procedures. Remember to get information, advice, and guidance from others to diversify your information resources.


2.3. Select the right country and establish a dedicated development team

Find the right country based on your budget and requirements. You also need to consider both labor costs and quality to get good service while reducing costs. Please note that problems may occur due to differences in time zones.


2.4. Understanding Offshore Development Center Providers

Before building a partnership, it's a good idea to review your company profile and read customer feedback. In addition, you should also look at the provider's performance. Choose a reputable, reasonably priced, experienced, English-speaking, and full-service provider.


2.5. Create a business strategy and team development plan

You need to work with remote IT teams to identify all obstacles, risks, and related solutions, both short-term and long-term business goals, visions, and missions. It is imperative that you have a good business plan and anticipate all the pitfalls that can occur in order to keep your business running smoothly.
