Case Study: Angular Development Team for Studytube

This case study reveals how a Dutch e-learning platform has benefited from working with offshore JavaScript developers from Ukraine.

The Story of Cooperation with Grid Dynamics

The team we built with Grid Dynamics is made up of reliable JavaScript developers who produce high-quality code. The remote model is definitely working out well for us. When I joined Studytube as a senior JavaScript developer, my mission was to build an Angular team to further develop our platform. Finding experienced JavaScript engineers was hard, and finding Angular developers was even harder. I decided to build our JavaScript development team in Ukraine with Grid Dynamics because I’d worked there before and knew how everything worked from the inside.

Grid Dynamics takes care of everything related to maintaining our team’s office. And overall, the company has been very responsive to our needs, and our Ukrainian team is simply great.

Why Grid Dynamics

Grid Dynamics takes care of everything related to maintaining our team’s office, including setting up workstations and taking care of payroll and taxes. Our HR/Client Manager at Grid Dynamics gives us a lot of support every time we need to find new developers for our team. Overall, the company has been very responsive to our needs, and our Ukrainian team is simply great.

Tools 

  • Jira, Confluence, Slack, Google Hangouts, WorkFlowy.

Tips

  • if you’re working with a relatively new or rare technology, and people with relevant experience are hard to find, hire good developers who’ve worked in a similar field regardless of their skill sets, and give them a few months to learn the tech you need
  • Hire remote developers only if they’re genuinely interested in your project and don’t need anyone to pressure them into working
  • Arrange business trips to your company’s headquarters for your offshore team to map out long-term goals side-by-side. This will also give your internal and external teams the chance to bond
  • Use the plank pose during daily stand-ups to help your team members stick to the point

Case Study: PowerBuilder Developers for Cornerstone Systems Inc.

Grid Dynamics was able to connect us with highly-educated developers at a price that has allowed us to hire two developers for roughly the cost of one in the US. I would recommend Grid Dynamics's services to anyone looking to find talented, reliable developers.

Case Study: Big Data Development Team for Unomy (WeWork)

Since the time Grid Dynamics helped us hire the first member of our offshore development team in Ukraine, we’ve added new people only through this company, and I think we’ve got a great partnership.

Case Study: Development Team for LegalTech German Startup RightNow Group

I think Grid Dynamics developers are very dedicated, they don't do it with the thought "I get paid, I have to code." As I've said, what we really like isn't to hire someone to do a project for us, but have someone to fulfill our vision together with us.
