There are 6821 nearshore software development companies

Only 2% of them are a good fit for your needs.

Stop kissing frogs. Use my network and talk to the right service companies.

To identify your 2% you can do an internet research, hope to get a good recommendation from a friend, and use my network.

Internet Research

In-depth research and pre-qualification of 6821 companies is impossible.

You'll end up with a shortlist of companies that are good in marketing but maybe not so good in engineering.


Be aware that a good fit for your friend does not necessarily have to be a good fit for you.

Industry, technologies, engagement model, team size, even the project phase have a major impact on such relationships.

Martin's Network

I have developed a strong personal network of very talented but also very different software providers.

Based on the specifics of your own business I will only get you in contact with companies that are a good fit for your needs.

4 steps to a better shortlist

1. What you want

In 2 calls (technical and business) I gather all necessary information from you. Requirements, challenges, how your overall environment looks like, and how compatible it is.

2. What you need

3 days later I get back to you to set some expectations and to reconfirm your wants and needs.

3. Check availability

By keeping you anonymous I check for corresponding availability in my personal network.

4. Introduction

I mutually introduce you to maximum 3 companies that are a good fit for your needs. My job for you is done but I can stay at your disposal if needed.

My match-making service bears no risk and is absolutely FREE for you.

Schedule a short call in my calendar and I'll explain you these 4 steps.

Nearshore software development is challenging

While employing individuals for your team is all about harmonizing, selecting an external partner is about “compatibly complementing”.

Think of your best internal programmer – let’s call him Tom. In his environment (location, support from his team and management, internal and external communication, access to broader information, self motivation and career path) Tom is an over-performer and a role model for an excellent engineer. But how would he perform if you send him and his spouse to a nice town in Eastern Europe?

Not so good? The work environment would be totally different. So, what does it take to successfully scale up software development remotely? Finding and trying to hire clones of Tom as remote workers is obviously not the best approach.

Being successful with nearshore software development is not about the technical skills of the remote workers and it’s not about their capabilities to speak your language. It’s about providing them a work environment that works for them and is compatible with yours. Here’s where service companies are all very different. It starts with how they hire, how they promote, how they make profit and how they collaborate with customers.

Why does this service exist?

For the past 20 years I sell nearshore software development services in the DACH market. Before that I was buying nearshore services in my role as Head of R&D.

Every day, I see frustration on both sides:

  • How shall an R&D or IT department find the right partner out of this sheer countless number of nearshore software development providers?
  • How shall a talented service company find the way to a matching IT or R&D department?


I bridge these gaps – at least for some.
