Hire The Best Shadow Engineers

The biggest benefit of hiring shadow engineers is that they are responsible for giving updates on every step that they are taking. Moreover, if they are particular in their work and the clients are satisfied then they can be easily replaced by the core developers of the project.

Bigscal has been leading the IT industry since 2011 and has been always providing the best solution for the businesses as well as the company. We are here to give your an uninterrupted development process.

The development process for any application or website is not as easy as you understand many times it is possible that some developers are on leave or due to some reasons they are unable to work. Hence this is where you need shadow engineers to get uninterrupted services.

Considerations Before You Assign A Shadow Engineers

There are mainly three factors that affect the hiring of a shadow developer. Mainly we try to occupy the shadow developer such that core developers get the proper feedback.

Requirements Of The Projects

This is the first factor and hence when we appoint shadow engineers we first seek out that what are the requirements of the project. If the project requirements are exclusive and if the core developers need help related to the feedback.

The Number Of Core Developers

The shadow developers can help the core developers to get genuine feedback about the development process. The core developers generally need shadow developers to understand more different aspects of the development process.

Complex Projects

Bigscal offers a customization feature for your application as well as the website. The core developers sometimes are unable to understand those features and hence cannot develop that according to the client’s requirement. But with the help of shadow developers, you can get the perspective of the business market as well as the technology.

What is the need shadow developers?

Shadow developers are the crucial ones when you need to customize the application with special features. The core team of developers has technical experience but the shadow developers know both the technicality as well as the market growth.

Here let’s understand the need of having a shadow developer in the project.

Get someone else to look

Shadow developers serve as the main people who guide the development process and give feedback about what looks good and what looks bad. They help development companies to give the best services.

Increases the development speed

Shadow developers are responsible to create the best interferences. They also make sure that your development process is accelerated. Moreover, the whole development process is increased.

Replacement of the core developer

Just in case any core developer is absent then the shadow developer will replace them and not let the development process stop. Because of the shadow developers you can have uninterrupted development.

New technologies to learn

The shadow developers are hired with expert knowledge and hence they have various technologies that can serve as a part of the new technologies. They know the unique technologies and also they know which technology suits the best for your development.

Creates neat code

Shadow developers are trained in such a way to create neat codes that helps the other developers to understand and make changes.

Explain the steps for hiring shadow developers.

Before you hire any shadow developers you must know the process of hiring the shadow developers. The better you understand the hiring process the better you will be able to get the best shadow developer for your business.

We select the developers after checking their skills and the technologies they know. We have streamlined the hiring process. The hiring process is as follows:

Check on the employee’s skills

Check the employee's skills and knowledge including business-to-market skills or technology-related understanding skills.

Technical skills

The developer you hire should have extreme knowledge about the technology they should know all the technology front and the backend. Moreover, they should be clear about the use of the technology.


The timezone of your shadow developer must be adaptable with the inhouse timing this is very necessary if you hire offshore developers.

Communication skills

The developer that you hire should have communication skills so that they can communicate with the in-house developers as well as with the clients.

On-time delivery

The developer should understand that they need to deliver the services on time and be strategic with the development process.

Mention the types of problems are associated with shadow code.

With the advantages of the shadow developer come the disadvantages. These are the main concerns that you need to address while seeing the viewpoint of the client's side.

Your client is concerned with functional software. Their primary metric for success is that. If you achieve success, you could be able to hire chimpanzees. You'll probably need to put in a little more effort the first time if you're still attempting to land your first client.

You will establish your credibility if you use an iterative development methodology that enables you to provide tested, functional software to your client within the first two to four weeks.

Your client will almost always be more understanding if you are honest with them. Some of your clients will leave your company if you won't even provide them with the names of your engineers because they won't trust someone with a problematic background with their product.

How to organize the shadow development team?

Relationships matter more than skills.

Whether they are engineers or not, we only employ the best. Therefore, having a great working connection with our employees—the majority of whom are contracting via me—is our main priority. It's unfortunate for me if they decide to go, but I'm hoping that the benefits of working for a prestigious company with top-notch projects, near-perfect organization, and competitive salary would encourage them to stay.

What matters is more transparency, not less.

Your problem is that you want to maintain control over your group. Everyone in our company operates with the same level of transparency: we don't always divulge everything, but we do so as much as is reasonable. If and when it's required, employees speak with clients; they decide when that is. We let them know up front that they can opt to do whatever they want if someone tries to hire them away.

Types of personnel are irrelevant

We understand if you're hiring a 16-year-old but aren't able to give him 40 hours of labor each week by law. It's difficult to find good individuals, and it might be challenging to harmonize laws that are somewhat outdated. But take into account the possibility of being exposed for your company. Almost never is it worthwhile. But more significantly, if you and your partner are honest about the circumstances and agree on what to do, everything should work out.

Explain the benefits of the shadow development model.

If the workload suddenly increases, we can swiftly enlarge our team with seasoned professionals who have worked with the client's system, giving our client actual flexibility.

We have the best possible replacement on hand in case a developer decides to leave the project.

The model's demonstrated capacity to serve as a highly successful method of coaching young developers is likely its greatest benefit for Bigscal.

The majority of the time, we prefer that our shadow developers have some background in programming but haven't worked on very complicated or large-scale projects. We provide students the chance to learn from seasoned developers without the pressure and deadlines that all developers occasionally have to deal with by assigning them to a genuine project but not charging the client for their services.

Our experience with this technique has proven that these developers soon become independent and productive, and they quickly advance to mid and senior-level positions.

The project manager or lead would inform the shadow engineers of any tasks that were still in progress. The project manager’s responsibility is to keep the shadow engineers informed and prepared. We take advantage of every opportunity to hire top talent, and because we have a steady stream of new projects waiting for good teams of engineers, we also give the necessary training.
