The platform approach enables really faster and easier to find outsourced contractors - both a single engineer or the whole development team.
What's important, these engineers are not freelancers, they work for real software development companies. The point is that, on the one hand, these companies want to make sure their engineers are fully engaged at decent projects. On the other hand, the clients don't need to spend time and cost for due-diligence and pre-vetting process.
This is exactly what YouTeam is aimed at - to match both sides on one marketplace.Yuliana Oselska has used this product for one year.

Differences between YouTeam & UpWork.
YouTeam has been designed to provide you the opportunity to rent talented engineers who work full-time within remote companies.
UpWork on the other hand has been optimised as a freelancer portal. Whilst companies do appear on the site through an option called ‘Agency Freelancing’, the hiring processes don’t really suit hiring from agencies. But why is that?
The next three points will explain how YouTeam is different from Upwork and demonstrate features which optimise the process of renting talent from within remote companies.
YouTeam thoroughly pre-vets companies before admitting them to the platform,
Upwork doesn’t run through this process, instead the onus is you to do your own due-diligence
The Hiring / Renting Process is different between the two platforms, in a nutshell:
YouTeam uses the booking paradigm (similar to Booking.com or Airbnb)
Whereas, UpWork has a process similar to Social Networks where you can reach out to everyone
Which leads us to the fourth main difference which is engagement model:
Upwork uses the Standard freelancing model - which means freelancers hired through UpWork tend to be working across multiple projects.
YouTeam on the other hand usually assigns full-time dedicated resources. In this way engineers aren't constantly switching between different projects.Tristan Senycia has used this product for one year.
