Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q1: Why nearshoring in Portugal?

There are many good reasons for companies to grow their nearshore services centers in Portugal, the most relevant being the overall quality of life and stability, availability of IT talent and language skills, infrastructure, and incentives. As the westernmost country of mainland Europe acting as a door to the European market, Portugal is a gateway to the Americas & Africa, while in the same timezone as the UK.

Q2: How do you ensure there’s a cultural fit?

The first step is to understand our customer’s situation and cultural background. By investing our time in discovery calls and other helpful meetings, we are able to respond in a flexible and seamless way, taking into account organizational and project requirements. We treat each of our customers as unique, making sure they feel understood and represented.

Q3: How are the teams organized?

To allow for a good fit with a client’s organizational needs, we adjust to their requirements, whether by placing our software engineers in already existing specialized and/or multidisciplinary teams or by building tailored IT teams to deliver certain IT projects fast, on time, and on budget.

Q4: What are your HR processes like?

Our human resources-related processes cover the whole candidate’s journey and employee lifecycle. We have a team dedicated to Talent Acquisition and Recruitment and another one to Talent and People Management. Every career plan is drawn in a flexible and customized way. Career planning is adapted to each employee’s profile, experience, needs, and goals.

Q5: How can Growin help in the management of my team?

If you need, we have available Project Managers, Scrum Masters, Product Owners or Team Leaders to help you meet your expectations and milestones. On the “Discovery Meetings" stage, let us know if you need these competences on our side. We can also adapt to different communication and project management tools.
