This case study reveals how a Norwegian application development company has benefited from working with remote Android and iOS developers in Ukraine.
The Android developer we hired with Grid Dynamics has helped us successfully complete two large projects. He has also provided the stimulus to professionalize the way we work: you can’t have a sloppy workflow when you work with remote team members. We hired Vladimir when we landed a major project, but didn’t have the internal capacity to complete it and couldn’t find suitable local talent in time. We have had plenty of experience working with freelancers from different parts of the world, and have seen a lot of different behaviors from them.

Benefits of Remote Model over Freelancers
However, when it comes to our Android app developer from Ukraine, any differences in culture have been negligible. We think in a similar way, and the result he produces is always top quality. The remote model has numerous advantages over working with freelancers, one of which is that remote employees work full-time, meaning that you know exactly how many hours they can put in and when you can contact them. It’s just a lot more predictable in this way.

Why Grid Dynamics
From a project management standpoint, Grid Dynamics has performed impeccably. Finding high-quality talent is a difficult job, so we were pleasantly surprised when Grid Dynamics sent us the CVs of really top-shelf engineers: thanks to them, we only needed to choose the absolute cream of the crop. They have also always been fast to respond whenever we contacted them. We’ve been fully satisfied with our cooperation, so we’ve recently added an iOS developer to our team through Grid Dynamics.
