Surge Value Proposition

Not All Code is Equal

100% ONSHORE

Benefits include high quality code, great communication, time zone compatibility, productivity, and self sufficiency (just to name a few).

30-50% Less Expensive

Thanks to our lean operations and onshore remote model you get senior software professionals at a significant discount over our competitors.

On-Demand Expertise

Why wait 60-90 days to find a senior software engineer when Surge can provide the best onshore talent in 1-2 weeks.

Top 2% Of Software Engineers

We have incredibly high standards. Our proprietary hiring process means that only 2% pass our rigorous evaluation and live coding process. Hiring great engineers is expensive and time consuming, let Surge do it for you.

Full "agile-scrum"

Not just great developers but we also offer full scrum teams that include ui/ux designers, business analysts, qa/testers (manual and automated), devops, db admins, and certified scrum masters.

White Glove Treatment

No automated matching here; we hand-select your team based on skills, industry experience, availability, etc. and then we provide certified project managers to oversee the engagement.

DEEP BENCH

We have over 300 senior software professionals who can tackle even the largest, most complex projects.
