The outbreak of Covid-19 drastically altered the entire job scenario almost overnight. Today, there is precisely no sector of the economy that is not affected by this dreadful calamity. There is no definite timeline for the anti-dote to be formed for it, and thus this global calamity is projected to have a very lasting impact on most economies of the world with murky corollaries.
Not working at all under this condition is certainly not the way we should approach this time, but rather we should change our way of work to attain equal productivity levels somehow. Due to this condition prevailing everywhere, some segments of the economy would be benefitted, and the organizations and firms falling under that category will be the direct beneficiaries; their workers will reap the fruits eventually. However, there may be many other sectors of the economy, which may be harmed badly; and the companies falling under them would be at a loss and so will be their workforce. Also, as our governments are ordering the people to stay indoors to stop the further spreading of Coronavirus and to self-quarantine ourselves to combat the disease, many businesses may find the idea of hiring remote developers wherein they will outsource their development work, to achieve similar results even during this lockdown time. Many companies are on their front-foot to hire remote development teams.

It is important for people working remotely that they are self-starters, as at times, there won’t be anyone to delegate each and every detail to them. So, in a way, they have to self-manage and self-organize their tasks, and manage their tasks all by themselves, and also have to manage their time for the same. They need to be initiative-takers, who deal with any roadblocks all by themselves and manage their work with challenging clients whenever encountered. Additionally, besides covering the software languages, frameworks, as well as development tools, remote developers also will have to put on some sort of pseudocode approach for resolving the development issues.
Businesses have to have a defined set of protocols before you hire remote developers, as follows:
Whether you hire remote developers for some part-time roles or you hire remote development teams on a full-time basis, or you hire a company having a team of developers, try analyzing their work over some pilot project, and then proceed, as this is going to be a win-win for both the remote developers and your company.
It is imperative to set certain guidelines before you hire dedicated developers for them to share daily and/or weekly and/or monthly work reports to you, wherein, they outline the work areas and even detail the websites referred to, and the time spent on each and every module in detail, along with the details about troubleshooting the bugs, testing the final product on any issues, and the leaks/breaks, if any and so on.
