What is Staff Augmentation?Having the right-sized team is critical to any successful project, and as projects enter new phases of maturity, sometimes it becomes necessary to add new members who are just right for the job.
Our Staff Augmentation approach provides the speed, professional approach and flexibility your team needs to scale quickly and complete development on time.
This is how it works – the extended team operates as part of your local team, attending daily meetings and reporting directly to your managers, thereby providing a real competitive advantage to your business.
Staff Augmentation is available for every type of project, no matter how simple or complex: from prototyping to full-scale development of desktop, mobile and web applications to testing solutions and systems management. Staff Augmentation is a proven, reliable and effective way for our clients to increase the size and productivity of their internal development teams in the least amount of time possible.

How do we do that?
Software engineering talent is difficult and expensive to both attract and retain. Benefit from our global team’s deep knowledge of industry labor trends, skill sets and extensive network.
When hiring top engineering talent, having a partner with a differentiated network can give you a major advantage. We provide top talent from Lithuania – one of Europe’s up-and-coming tech hubs – and source candidates from our vast network and robust talent database with over 3,000+ candidates.
Our team of recruitment professionals has a deep understanding of the cultural environment that our talent hails from, and a variety of unique procedures in place for approaching candidates. We are continuously in contact with our partners and specialists to ensure that available talent is reached as quickly as possible.
Coding skill is not the be-all and end-all of building great software. For this reason, we deliver talent based on your unique business needs, desired outcomes, and individual preferences. From there, we perform extensive vetting to ensure an excellent technical and cultural fit.
Rather than assigning talent following a pre-set framework, we provide flexible contracts with adjustable deadlines and deliver exactly as many experts as you need at any given moment. We can provide a full team right from the start or build one along the way. In addition, clients are free to mix and match different contract types within a single team, e.g., hiring more experienced members for 1 year, and less experienced ones for as little as 1 month.
We keep in close touch with our clients during each stage of the Staff Augmentation process. Pre-hire, we provide the client with progress reports on recruitment processes and arrange interviews with candidates. Once recruitment is finished, we touch base with the client regularly to ensure ongoing satisfaction and meet any new needs.
Switching from one approach to another
The Staff Augmentation approach is also available as a quality assessment method suitable for more in-depth cooperation in the future. We provide clients with the opportunity to hold the reins while thoroughly evaluating how Toughlex communicates, reacts to different situations, performs its daily operations, and fits into the processes already in place. If you’re worried that switching from one approach to another might be difficult, we can assure you that we’ve made it as smooth as possible
This is the most popular alternative to the Staff Augmentation approach. Here’s how it works – a client comes up with a new (or already ongoing) project and asks Toughlex to get involved. We provide assistance with designing products, developing architectural solutions, identifying requirements, and conducting analyses. The client also has the option to use the same team that was formed to work in accordance with the Staff Augmentation approach. Preparations for the switch are made without interrupting the provision of development services.To Projects
Switching to Tech Partnership is a bigger leap than going from the Staff Augmentation to the Project approach. With Tech Partnership, we take full responsibility for the project and make all development-related decisions ourselves, consulting the client only on strategic issues. If necessary, we can even take over the client’s IT department and start leading the project from there. The change doesn’t happen overnight, as we need to first prepare a roadmap for our new role as tech partners.
