Our services

Product Discovery

We’ve worked with many startups, armed only with an idea and endless enthusiasm. And we’ve helped big companies with equally big ambitions too.

Wireframing and Design

Mapping out exactly what needs to be built, understanding the entire user journey so we can craft a seamless experience. Planning makes perfect.

Software Engineering

This is what DECODE was founded on, and we love it. Messaging apps, social platforms, mobile banking – we’ve got the experience for any challenge.

Quality Assurance

You shouldn’t have to deal with software bugs, so we work tirelessly behind the scenes to catch them all. Leave it with us.

When to consider a dedicated team

If you find yourself in these bullet points, the dedicated team model is the best for you:

Best suited if…

  • Your project needs specific skill sets
  • You don’t want to hire new staff because it’s time-consuming and expensive
  • You’re looking for a team that’ll be focused only on you
  • You want a transparent and effective collaboration
  • You need a long-term partner

WHY choose our dedicated team

Our dedicated teams have been developing high-quality digital products for 10 years.  Here’s why you should choose us for your development needs:

hiring developers

Highly experienced

80% of DECODErs are senior and middle engineers with extensive domain experience in the most challenging industries.

Fully transparent

Through our agile working method, you have complete control and full transparency. You know exactly who’s doing what, when, why, and at what cost.

No context switching

We completely immerse ourselves in your world, laser-focused on your goals. Our dedicated teams work on one project only.

Focused on quality

Our dedicated teams prioritize quality from the start of the development process. We use the STLC (software testing life cycle) which enables our developers and QAs to always keep track of security.

Also, we have obtained the ISO/IEC 27001 certificate which guarantees us safeguarding all your product information and data.

OUR DEDICATED TEAM Process

Let’s walk you through the steps of working with our dedicated teams.

01

Discovery

In order to give you the best service, we’ll first have a detailed talk about:

  • Your app goals
  • Your target audience
  • The project scope

This will enable us to precisely determine the right dedicated team, the right tools, and technologies, and the right skills needed to get the job done perfectly.


If you haven’t done the discovery part yourself, no worries. We offer app product discovery as a service where we figure out the plan for your app.

02

TEAM SETUP

Next, we’ll do the team setup. You need experts and we have them. Having previously discussed your project we’ll now create a dedicated team suited to your needs.

Generally, our dedicated team consists of:

  • UX designer
  • Project manager
  • Mobile and/or web developers 
  • QA engineers

Need only developers? That’s fine by us.

We can also form only development teams that will be at your disposal.

After we set the team up, we’ll get you introduced and get working on the next step.

03

TEAM ONBOARDING

In order for everything to work seamlessly, we integrate our team with your project and align our processes and tools to it. We Introduce the team to your company culture, project goals, and tools.

For onboarding to go smoothly, together we:

  • Access your code repository
  • Allocate roles and responsibilities
  • Set up joint meetings and demos
  • Agree on tools for communication, project management, and development
  • Set up the overall roadmap for the project

Commonly this phase lasts a couple of weeks. When everything is set up, our team moves to the development phase.

04

Agile development process

To give you the best and most timely results, we use Agile methodologies such as SCRUM.

We split work into sprints lasting 2-4 weeks. At the end of each one, we present our latest progress.

Agile is the best way to provide you with the most quality product while remaining transparent both in communication and business matters.

05

Post launch

The launch of product version 1.0 is just the beginning. We’re a long-term partner and we’ll continue to build your product for as long as you need us.


What we do for you post-production:

  • Propose new features
  • Track app performance
  • Run support
  • Do maintenance

Roles and responsibilities

Being professional and transparent is crucial for the success of our collaboration. That’s why we clearly define roles and responsibilities.

Our responsibilities

  • Provide experts according to your project’s requirements
  • Provide infrastructure and transfer of knowledge
  • Communicate with you transparently on a regular basis
  • Provide you with reports on time
  • Post-launch support, maintain and update products according to your requirements

Your responsibilities

  • Provide code repository
  • Outline the project requirements
  • Set clear expectations and goals for the dedicated team
  • Share information and documentation (backlogs, technical documentation)
  • Set deadlines
  • Participate actively in the development process
  • Provide regular feedback
  • Notify of project changes in time
  • Own the IP

Tools of the Trade

We’re engineers so it’s not surprising we know how to get the most out of digital tools. Here’s a snapshot of what we use and why:

Slack logo

Slack for communication

Our favourite option for quick messaging, with channels and private groups to avoid information overload. We can use Microsoft Teams too if that’s better for you.

Jira logo

Jira and the Atlassian suite for collaboration

Jira is really robust for project management, and after using it for a long time, we know it inside out. We use Confluence for document management, alongside G-Suite apps, though happy to use alternatives like Asana, Trello or Microsoft Teams if they’re your choice.

GoogleMeet logo

Google Meet for calls

That’s how we like to chat, but happy to Zoom or jump on a Teams call too. What’s most important to us here is regular catch-ups – the more we talk the better we work together.

BitBucket logo

Bitbucket for code

It’s always stored in a Git repository, ideally hosted by Bitbucket, but just let us know if you’d prefer Github, your own Gitlab, or through Microsoft Teams. And of course, you can have access to the repository to track progress in real-time.

BitRise logo

Bitrise for continuous integration and deployment

It’s all about automation. We want to deliver web, mobile and backend applications at the touch of a button and Bitrise is our go-to here, alongside Jenkins, CircleCi and Bitbucket pipelines. Microsoft DevOps too, if needed.

Figma logo

Figma for design

Our preference over Sketch, with Zeplin providing the pixel-perfect bridge between designers and software developers. Figma handles our prototyping and wireframing too, though Invision is great for fast turnaround presentations.

Still unsure about something?

Don’t worry, whatever it is, we’ve got you covered in our FAQ.

The benefits of hiring a dedicated team for your project are numerous. The most obvious one is saving money and time. There’s no need for you to go through the long hassle of an expensive hiring process and maintenance of your employees. The time and money you saved can be redirected to other activities in your company.

Other benefits are

  • You gain access to niche professionals 
  • You get quick development cycles and better collaboration 
  • You get a focused team
  • The team is flexible

Read more about the benefits of a dedicated team in our blog post.

The time and materials model is the best fit. Why? Here you actually pay for the effort your dedicated team puts into your project. Let’s say 5 experts work for 6 months, that’s 30 engineering months of effort. That is the figure you should be comparing, not just the cost. 

The cost then should more-less directly relate to the efforts, so if someone charges 30 USD/hr or 90 USD/hr it makes the difference. That means there’s no fear of overhead costs.


Also, time and materials is much cheaper than having in-house developers. You don’t have to pay additional expenses such as recruiting, benefits, health insurance etc.

The scope is totally up to you! You’ll be working closely with the team and they’ll work exclusively on your project so you can feel free to change it if needed.

Our dedicated team is flexible and focused on bringing the best out of your product.

Yes. All code written by our team is accessible to you at any time. We usually use our BitBucket as source control, but if that doesn’t suit your requirements, we don’t mind using any other source control like GitHub, GitLab, or Azure Git repository.

We can provide you with any number of IT experts you need from our team of 70+ people.

This video demonstrates exactly that:

Other examples include:

  • When Apple removed Fling’s app from the App Store, we jumped on a plane to London the very next day to work 72 hours, non-stop. As our CEO said at the time: “I couldn’t be prouder of the team for making Fling even better than before, especially under such pressure.”
  • We flew to Dusseldorf to present an app to the Vodafone tech team in person.
  • We’ve prioritized CVs for a new addition to a client’s in-house iOS team. DECODE’s engineers sorted through them, analyzed the code and suggested the best candidates for the interview.

As for our team, we have weekly dev Scrums, daily stand-ups, all the people are together in one office, and we actively use Slack, Skype, Google Hangouts, GitHub, Bitbucket and more…

We like to automate everything to reduce human error whenever possible. Being able to implement sustainable continuous integration workflow is very important so we can deliver new versions regularly and often, ensuring there’s no regression and everything works as intended. 

We have written multiple articles about this topic available to read here:

We are used to working with big brands such as Metaswitch (a Microsoft company), Royal Caribbean, AT&T and Asseco SEE, so we understand what high-quality and carrier grade deliverables mean.

We even developed our own software product (www.shakebugs.com) that helps big companies in their mobile development process.
