We have used Remote Programmer for last 77 months (as on March 2014) and have always been impressed by the quality of the service they provide. We have a fairly complex website with more than 400 MySQL tables which requires a lot of work on an ongoing basis so we opted to use dedicated resources from them. It is a great value for money.
A team developer can also be called young developer. They have full of energy and hunger for success. Normally a developer at this stage can devote maximum amount of time in programming, leaving their personal and family needs. They can yield maximum output if little guidance at the right time. Particularly in designing, planning and quality control issues.
They are unlike trainee developers who have no or little experience. A team developer has a successful track record of completing several web projects over a period of at least 2 years.

Note: Minimum billing/quotation hours for a fixed cost hiring is 4 only. The minimum log hour for all types of hiring is 1 only. Higher is the volume lower is the rate. Reason, leakage for executing a smaller task is more than a bigger one.
For doing hard core programming works, often, a team developer yields higher output than a senior developer or a project manager but only when they are under a proper guidance.
But you should never hire ONLY a dedicated team developer for developing new projects independently. They can do it but with a moderate perfection. It may result incorrect project design, long UAT chain, quality control issues which may cause delivery delay and future maintenance issues.
