FAQs for our Clients:
Remote work is the future of work, and the current COVID-19 situation is a testament of the same. Having a talented remote team means you can have the best talent on your team quickly and seamlessly, without being restricted to a geographical location.
This will allow you to create the perfect product in record time, without breaking the bank!
ScaleupAlly does not wish to replace your existing in-house team. We specialise in blending-in our Talent pool with your in house team. Our solution is not designed to replace your team. It is designed to boost the productivity and capability of your inhouse team.
Burdened by a fixed payroll structure, agencies have a limited talent pool that they are forced to use to deliver projects and attract new clients simultaneously. On the other hand, with the flexible staffing structure you get the best fit resources working dedicatedly on your project. In other words, we provide you with all the advantages of an agency, with none of the shortcomings. Read more about how we do that here.
Finding talent on a freelancing platform can be a painstaking and long process. Even after going through with it, there’s no guarantee that the resource you hire will match your expectations. At ScaleupAlly, we not only match you with the right talent, we also make sure they deliver. Read more about this here.

After the project request is sent, Scaleupally finds profiles of experts that are a great fit for your project — and, more importantly, we match you with experts that are ready to start work in the next week or two. Instead of going to dozens of agencies and spending your personal time on vetting them and their experts, doing interviews, and negotiating contracts and pricing, you can get all these steps taken care of by us in a single day.
You can see CVs and portfolios and interview handpicked experts before engaging with software houses that employ them. Clients can hire an expert and commence work significantly quicker than traditional outsourcing, where it typically takes 3-4 weeks to launch work on a project.
Yes! Once we go into the project details, we will create the dynamic team and introduce you to them.
- Engagement And Community Building- We organise a virtual evening party every month where our talent pool gets together. The activity is designed to promote conversation amongst different experts within our talent pool and ultimately help us create a community of our own.
- Motivation- We have group mentors for our team who constantly boost the morale of our team by consulting them personally as well as in group. However, we know that mere words aren’t enough to motivate that’s why we have developed comprehensive performance-based incentive plans, along with a very lucrative rewards system.
- Discipline- ScaleupAlly has worked hard to develop agile processes and acquire communication tools like Slack, Asana, and Confluence that ensure discipline within our teams.
We do this to protect our interests from headhunters that may abuse our platform to contact experts from our talent pool. Don’t worry, we share detailed CVs with our clients after they have spoken to a ScaleupAlly team member.

For resources that are billed on an hourly basis, clients can access their hourly tracking data and instantly raise concerns if tasks are taking more time than expected. For clients that are billed for a complete project, it is our guarantee that the project will be delivered on time.
We work hard to ensure such situations don’t occur. However, if in an exceptional case such a challenge does present itself, we are prepared to handle it. We will pull out a replacement for the resource from our talent pool within 24 hours. Moreover, we use tools like Bitbucket where daily work and code repo is stored. Using this information, the replacement resource can immediately pick up from where the previous resource left off.
ScaleupAlly also ensures such a mishap has no influence over your day-to-day project deliverables.
We enter into a contract agreement and NDA with every member of the talent network.
