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…

- 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 11 years. Here’s why you should choose us for your development needs:
80% of DECODErs are senior and middle engineers with extensive domain experience in the most challenging industries.
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.
State-of-the-art tools and technologies
We’re always on the lookout for better and more efficient ways to develop apps. That means we’re equipped only with the best practices, tools, and technologies.
Reliable and scalable
We can be a big team during intensive product development, then quickly scale down when version 1.0 is released. Why pay for resources you don’t need?
Tech stack versatility
Our engineers are fluent in many languages. From mobile to web technologies, we’re covering them all. You can find more in the sections below.
- Continuous Integration & Deployment
- Automated and manual testing
- Pixel-perfect design implementation
OUR DEDICATED TEAM Process
Let’s walk you through the steps of working with our dedicated teams.
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.
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.
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 days. When everything is set up, our team moves to the development phase.
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.
You can read more about Scrum methodology and why it’s so effective.
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.
- 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
- 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:
Swift, Objective C
React Native Flutter
Node.js & Python/Flask

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.
