Lionix or How to Hire Developers from Armenia

During Covid-19 it has become clear for all of us that era of remote work arrived.

Many IT giants closed their offices and went home to continue creating great products.

The ones who switched online survived, others went straight to the Mariana Trench.

I bet, many of you thought, “Ah, it will end in 3 weeks, and all will be back to normal”. But now. It’s our new normal. Our walking for groceries became www.supermarketnearby.smth, our visit to restaurants turned into www.ordertastyfood.quick.

Have you made your business to be online already? If no, it’s not late to do, follow the link, fill the simple form and our managers will give you consultation for free about how to jump into the pool of online business.

As the businesses switched online, obviously the employees also turned their homes into offices, their stand-ups into Google Meet meetings.

Do people love working from home?

Okay, it depends. When we switched online, I felt that most of the teammates productivity increased, their availability became higher. And it’s fantastic.

Video conferencing company Owl Labs surveyed 1,200 U.S. workers between the ages of 22 and 65 for its 2019 State of Remote Work report and found that employees who regularly work remotely are happier and stay with their companies longer than on-site employees. Of the more than 1,200 people surveyed, 62 percent work remotely at least part of the time.

Remote working ability breaks the borders, now it’s okay that our employees can be outside of our country, region, or even.. continent. Who cares from where employees are working, if they are not in the office and do their job at the highest perk.

Closing offices and going home still requires continuous hiring of new people and here where remote work comes with all its beauty.

But how to still hire the right people? How to feel their emotions exactly as in live interviews? Let’s talk a little bit about Outsourcing and Outstaffing.


Outsourcing is the type of cooperation where source provider and client agree on a project-based business model which means that usually, the client entrusts the outsourcing company the whole project from A to Z. The client no need to worry and have access to the development team itself (although he can of course). Outsourcing is a more stress-free cooperation type as the client doesn’t need to manage staff, care about processes, rent office, and all the headaches it can bring.



  • no need to care about development processes, plannings, and testings
  • no need to build a team, rent an office, hire team and managers
  • can perfectly fit for MVP’s, single projects, making separate department
  • if someone leaves the team, he can be easily replaced by the source provider


  • the client usually don’t know the developers themselves
  • don’t see the internal processes, team working process


Outstaffing is a type of remote cooperation where clients hiring professionals from another company, without the need to care about the hiring process and finding candidates. In this case, the client taking care of management, about employee salary. The benefits of this, full control of persons who work on the project.


Outstaffing is better applicable for following companies:

  • The ones which already have IT team and want to extend it
  • The ones who wants to build up the new IT department in existing company


The final decision should be made based on the company profile, there is no universal solution for all companies. We will be happy to assist you to make the right decision.
