Staff Augmentation

The standard recruiting process ( posting jobs, sorting through resumes, conducting first & second round interviews, etc ) can often take weeks or months, creating bottlenecks. And, in some cases, additional software engineers are only needed for a limited time on a project-by-project basis.

Sphere Software has been helping augment development teams for over a decade — our staff augmentation services are designed to give you the top talent you need in the shortest time frame possible. Our experts are ready to fill knowledge gaps to help your team achieve its goals, or add resources to support on-time delivery for large scale development efforts. Because we are not a staffing agency nor a recruiter, you can hire our engineers to work alongside your team on-site, or remotely from any of our global development centers at a moment’s notice.

We’re skilled at integrating seamlessly with your existing in-house team with our “Foundations” framework ( where we align with your objectives throughout the lifecycle of the project ). Since our software engineers are Sphere employees, they’ve completed our rigorous screening, training, and mentoring process. You can rest assured that they’re experienced team players who will be productive from day one.

Want to fast-track your project? Our experts are standing by.

There are an infinite number of ways to utilize Sphere’s development expertise to strengthen and support your in-house development team. The diagram below illustrates a few of the most common configurations of our augmentation services.

Problem

Nokia manages one of the largest networks of communications data in the world. These networks are becoming increasingly strained as wireless technologies continue to penetrate new markets and remote populations. Companies like Nokia are constantly searching for ways to streamline their data analytics processes to alleviate the strain on their existing infrastructure.

Response

The data analytics engineers at Sphere created a new process to extract and compress the complex patterns of big data before it reaches any of the thousands of storage centers around the world. They invented a proprietary algorithms that dramatically reduces the processing time needed to extract actionable insights from one of the largest and most complex sources of Big Data in the world.

Problem

OneMain Holdings, Inc. (formerly Springleaf Holdings, Inc.) is a financial company that has been providing personal lending products for more than 100 years. They needed to start transitioning their brick and mortar business into the digital world. Their new service would be an iLoan.com site where a potential borrower could apply for a loan, get the application verified and approved, and receive the loan. The site also needed to offer customer support throughout the entire loan life cycle via backend logic and customer representative applications. With these improvements, OneMain’s clients would not need to visit physical branches at any point during the loan process.

Approach

Sphere provided a team of experts to assist with the rapid development of the application and the related test automation. We helped to implement complex integration with 3rd party financial vendors like IDology, InstantID, TheWorkNumber, Yodlee, GDS Link, Acxiom, and others. QA automation of a complex SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) application enabled fully testing the whole application in integration without hitting external services and allowed for the development of continuous integration. By augmenting our client’s team, Sphere helped OneMain to more quickly deliver their product and meet their ambitious goals.
