What we really enjoy about our team in Kyiv is that our developers are a part of RightNow Group. This is a nice thing to have dedicated resources full-time on our project. We consider our remote developers as our co-workers in Germany. Of course, we can visit them (here in Kyiv it is our second office), they can come to Germany, so the approach is very flexible.
I think Grid Dynamics developers are very dedicated, they do not simply work 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 working on fulfilling our vision together with us. We enjoy working with the guys, both during office hours and in the evening when we can have some beer together. Grid Dynamics has found a really good fit for both of us on a personal and professional level.

Collaboration with the Team
We have daystart calls to align on topics such as the general quality and expectations, discuss things, and answer questions. We are a 2.5-hour flight away and it is important to work together, stay very close in touch, and make sure we know what is going on in Kyiv and that our developers know what’s new in Germany.
Of course we also communicate using Slack, so these are the 2 means we’re using. But surely, nothing can replace meeting each other in person. That’s why we also try to come to Kyiv once a month and invite our Ukrainian team to Germany regularly. So this is the combination of communication methods we use.

Why Grid Dynamics?
We wanted a dedicated team which would be a part of RightNow Group. Instead of an external team sitting at the opposite end of the table, we wanted to have people sitting on the same side of the table.
We were looking for alternatives in the field of outstaffing and we came across Grid Dynamics. After we had the first call, we jumped directly into recruiting. This was the beginning, then we started to grow together. It’s also a nice thing that with the outstaffing model you can grow together. So this is how we started cooperation, which we find absolutely enjoyable.
From the very beginning we were very convinced by the professionalism of the people Grid Dynamics chooses. Our team in Kyiv is very experienced and the guys know what they are doing. Grid Dynamics impressed us not only from the recruitment side, but also with their customer relations. The whole company is organized very professionally.
The second thing is that Grid Dynamics has a lot of resources to help us grow. So when we need a developer, Grid Dynamics is able to provide the first candidate for our team within a few weeks, which is a really flexible model. That is why the good network of Grid Dynamics here in Ukraine and the ability to offer a highly professional service were the two main aspects that convinced us to work with Grid Dynamics.
“When we need a developer, Grid Dynamics is able to provide the first candidate for our team within a few weeks, which is a really flexible model.”
Currently, we have a development team of six, but we are planning to increase it in the next few weeks. Seniority is really important, because we have a very solid tech product. With our tech team we are rebuilding a lot of features of the old infrastructure. We try to improve our automatization potential.
As I mentioned, we are automating the key aspects of LegalTech and this is why we are investing a lot of time and project efforts into automation. Besides that, we are launching new projects, because we are expanding. It will be not only trains and flights, we are growing our other verticals as well. So they are helping us to bring these products to life.
