According to a poll of 36,000 engineers conducted in 2022 by HackerRank, the two most significant challenges that employers face when attempting to fill open positions are a lack of diversity and a shortage of qualified job seekers.

In order to address the challenges that businesses are currently facing, many companies have been leveraging a dispersed model in order to access a larger, more varied talent pool. One example is Gusto, who made a public commitment to diversify their engineering team. To fulfill this promise, they chose to transition to a distributed model and partnered with Works to recruit the best engineers from all over Asia.

In September of 2022, Works collaborated with Gusto, a platform that offers businesses an efficient, versatile solution for payroll, benefits, and human resources management. Initially, Works was staffed with a single developer, Femi, whose primary focus was to develop salary calculators and survey tools that could be integrated into other websites.

Gusto’s first foray into distribution was with Works, resulting in a doubling of their workforce with the opening of a second Works developer position and a sizeable new office in Denver, Colorado. After a visit to the Singapore headquarters in December 2022, and a thorough examination of the backend of Works, Gusto decided to hire two more developers, bringing the total to four developers across two teams within a period of three months.
