“We were looking for startup-friendly, flexible, capable developers to manage updating an existing prototype / alpha product.”

How did you select this vendor and what were the deciding factors?

“We hired two vendors initially, having each work in parallel. SPD was recommended by a trusted colleague, and after a few months it was clear to us to consolidate all work with them.”

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.

“Laravel, PHP, MySql, AWS Lambda, and other third party libraries and services. The work is defined in releases. With each release, a scope is determined by me and the client and delivered to the team.”

How many people from the vendor’s team worked with you, and what were their positions?

“5 total have worked with us. 2 PMs, 1 QA, and 2 developers.”

Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timeliness.

“Weekly demo meetings, Asana task management, Slack + MS Teams.”

What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

“Caliber of developer talent is very high. Good communication. They quickly understood the application’s goals and have been proactive in suggesting improvements in addition to the scope we have provided.”

Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

“We are in very different time zones from the team; I don’t expect that this is something for them to accommodate but it’s my only difficulty so far.”
