Remote DBA

Hi List,

    I've been reading a lot about remote DBA services, these appear to be companies based on different locations that provide customers with DBA services while having all the DBAs physically in one location (or a limited number of locations). These services are usually hired by companies whose primary focus isn't IT.

    My question now is...would this work in reverse? Having several DBAs working out of their own homes in whatever city or country they want for a single company (or for one of the remote DBA services)? I understand the complexities of having people without Green Cards or working VISAS working for US based companies, even if they are now physically in the US.

    This one may be for recruiters or decision makers: Would you hire somebody you've never met (or met only by phone) who lives in another country (worst case) and whose experience you can't verify if they asked for half of what an on-site DBA would?

Thanks in advance
