Emerging technology engineering

Gain a competitive advantage through early adoption of new technologies.

Access to experienced engineers in emerging technologies is hard

Grid Dynamics excels at hiring, training, growing, managing, and retaining specialists in emerging technologies and making them available to clients on demand. We do that by building delivery centers in the cities with the highest number of top technical universities and rich traditions of math, science and innovation. We hire the top 10% of technical talent. Nearly 100% of our staff has advanced degrees.

Every year we deliver hundreds of courses in emerging technologies to our engineers using Grid University, our unique learning platform. Through our deep relationships with top local universities, forged over years of collaboration, and specialized recruiting programs, we can scale the hiring and staffing of new engineering teams to support complex technical programs faster than anyone in the industry.

Rapid prototyping with Lean Labs

Many companies struggle to foster innovation within their existing teams. The challenge is usually cultural—how to marry the need for experimentation, freedom to "fail fast" and a creative license to throw away the "old ways of doing things" with compliance to corporate standards and security practices. Grid Dynamics has a service offering that helps companies try fresh ideas quickly outside of the corporate bureaucracy before bringing them in-house for productization once they have proved to be successful.

We call this program Lean Labs, and it works like this: a dedicated, self-sufficient team staffed by Grid Dynamics engineers works on a customer problem with the client's subject matter experts. The team moves fast, uses the latest technologies, and aims to solve the business use case to demonstrate measurable value to the business stakeholders. The project takes anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks and costs under $200K.
