Remote software development – your nearshoring partner

Finding Software Developers is becoming increasingly challenging due to the lack of available, well-trained IT professionals in The Netherlands, even for Recruiters or IT recruitment agencies.

Are you experiencing difficulties recruiting qualified IT / Software Developers in the Netherlands at a reasonable price? Are you dissatisfied with the price and/or quality of your current IT development partner and do you want to have more control over the process, time and associated costs?

Do the cultural differences in an offshore software development organisation based in Asia, such as India, China, Taiwan, Vietnam or the Philippines concern you? Or does your current nearshore IT development partner from Eastern European countries (such as Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia or Ukraine) or the Baltic States (Lithuania, Estonia or Latvia) give you the feeling that your wishes or corporate culture are not fully understood?

Do you wish you could combine a pleasant lifestyle with your growth objectives? These are all reasons to consider Oscala’s Nearshore Software Development Centre in Spain with professional, quality, low cost & flexible staff and set up.

You can outsource your IT development to our centres in Barcelona or Valencia in Spain. Spain has a large pool of highly qualified and experienced IT professionals. Software Developers selected by you to work remotely from our Nearshore IT Development Centres are under the supervision of our Dutch-speaking supervisors.

Our recruitment team and our extensive international network provides our potential clients with IT professionals, primarily from Spain, but also from other (Eastern) European countries, Russia and the Ukraine. Óscala offers Software Developers the opportunity to build an international career.
