Patrick is a recognized expert on international team augmentation and through his affiliated employers has worked with Masterclass, Google, and more to leverage nearshore software development teams. Contact Patrick to learn how your company can reduce costs by going offshore.

Nearshore operations unlock billions in value every year.

But most companies that attempt team augmentation wind up with broken products and worn-out project management. Don’t be one of them.

The goal of my content on this site is to educate customers on what to look out for when finding, vetting, and selecting a team augmentation partner; whether nearshore, offshore, or onshore.
