How We Work

To start with us, simply complete the contact form. Here’s what happens after we get your request.

Initial Consultation

We schedule a call with our senior developer to grasp your vision, your needs, the app's concept, its intended users, your business specifics, and the available resources.

Exploration and Proposal

In the coming days, we research the tech choices and create a proposal outlining the design plan for the app, the team composition, estimated timelines, and costs for the initial and future releases.

Planning and UI/UX Design

We gather a team, and you work with a business analyst to refine the first release's functionality. Meanwhile, a designer creates interface mockups, and a tech lead plans the app's architecture.

Incremental Development

Developers deliver new features every week. As a key team member, you follow all tasks in Slack and hold weekly meetings with the team to clarify requirements and give feedback on completed features.

Release and Post-Launch Development

When the first version is ready, it's released to users, and you start collecting feedback. Considering this feedback, we adjust the next release plan and continue to add features weekly under your guidance.

Maintenance and Update

When the app is finalized, the team is reduced to 1-2 devs for support. It includes fixing user-reported bugs, ensuring good performance under increasing loads, and timely updates to avoid security holes.

FAQ

How big is your company?

Our company is compact, with approximately 30 professionals. We consider this a benefit, as it provides a dynamic setting. We can discuss and resolve matters without any delays, engaging management, tech leaders, executors, and customer representatives effortlessly.

How long has your company been established?

Our tech leads joined forces over 20 years ago and have been working together since, recruiting like-minded people and training newcomers. We have a closely-knit team with strong traditions, though the company has moved and rebranded several times, most recently in 2023.

Do you work with small startups? What about big enterprises?

Absolutely. We've helped various startups, including very small ones founded by students or a full-time nurse. And we have also worked and continue to work with major enterprises, such as a chemical plant or an eCommerce network with a Europe-wide reach.

Are your developers hired as freelancers?

No, all our devs are full-time employees. Most of them have been with us for a long time, often from the start of their careers. Each one is trained and supervised by our tech leads. We never hire temporary staff for a single project.

Who holds the rights to the code you develop and the intellectual property?

You hold exclusive ownership of the code developed for your project. The codebase is stored in your own account in the code repository of your choice, from day one, and we only access it with your authorization. We do not reuse code between projects. You can impose an NDA to restrict sharing information about your project.

How do you bill for your services?

We charge a weekly fee based on the actual number of hours worked by your team members. The team composition and their weekly workload are determined after an initial call with you, according to project needs, and detailed in our proposal. Before each payment, we report on the work done in the previous week.

Do you work with technologies like Oracle or Microsoft.NET?

No, we work exclusively with mainstream open-source technologies, widely adopted in the industry and with strong support from the developer community. This way, our clients avoid problems and costs associated with future support.

How long will it take to launch the first version of my app?

We believe that discovering user acceptance as early as possible is crucial for an app's success. That's why we carefully select features for the first release to provide meaningful value to users while allowing for a fast launch. Ideally, this should take 1.5-2 months, rarely exceeding 3 months.

How much time will I need to dedicate to my project?

We believe that a high-quality app can't be created without your continuous input. This means giving written task descriptions, joining at least two weekly calls to discuss and review features, and texting answers to devs' questions - totaling at least 8 hours per week.

What should I expect once my app is finished?

An app requires constant support to thrive. User complaints must be handled, performance monitored as it grows, databases cleaned and libraries updated regularly to prevent data leaks. Usually, 1-2 developers are sufficient for this. If not, the app will soon break down, risking the loss of your user base.

Who will instruct my employees on how to use the app you built?

We are ready to provide any help you need in training your staff to operate the app. We can create user manuals, conduct training sessions, and consult your employees if they encounter any difficulties.

Will my in-house or remote developers be able to work with your code?

Absolutely. We adhere to standard coding practices, ensuring that any team can easily maintain or update our apps. Moreover, we have proven procedures for working jointly with other teams and transferring projects, whether taking over or handing off to other developers, whenever required for the client's benefit.
