startup our process

We know
what matters

Waterfall, agile, who cares? Working with 50+ startups we realized there are 3 main goals you have. Your product needs to be:

Scenario:
You’re promised an MVP in 3 months.
5 months later, it’s not even in sight.

Meanwhile, you’re burning money at unsustainable rates.
Next thing you know, you’re out of business.

We’ll make sure you hit the market quickly with your MVP.
That means you’ll get user feedback fast.
And that means you’ll be able to improve your product.

Our experts will make informed, realistic time estimates and create a detailed roadmap to make it all possible.

We won’t overpromise. We’ll overdeliver.

Scenario:
You’re a startup, looking to hire a vendor to develop your product.
You can’t afford to hire the wrong company. When that happens, you’ll get

  • Unreliable development 
  • Scope creep
  • Increased development costs

So what you need is a company with a proven track record.
A company that worked on many complex projects.
A company that understands startups.

Scenario:
You reach the market with your MVP.
The only problem is that users aren’t impressed.
It’s either riddled with bugs or doesn’t solve the user’s main pain point.

We have a 2-way approach to solving this problem.

  • Meticulous CI/CD pipelines ensuring consistent quality in every line of code.
  • Detailed product discovery to understand your users and how to solve their problems.

Here’s what startups say about us

Their staff showed broader engineering skills, beyond just “mere” software development, like an analytical approach, diligent troubleshooting, and the willingness to learn fast.
Tonci Damjanic
CTO at Bizzon →
What struck us the most with DECODE is the versatility of their engineers who were able to tackle every problem and respond to every challenge with diligence and persistence. Their UI/UX designer showed extraordinary creativity and was a source of excellent ideas. They were an excellent bunch to work with!
William Skannerup
Founder at Gentoo App & VeridenKey
DECODE made an excellent job working with us on one of our most strategic projects with one of the biggest, most global clients within the industry. With great energy, great technical knowledge, very quick understanding of the situation and what was needed to be done, including the willingness to walk the extra mile, they were a big part of make this project so successful. True professionals and very good output with high quality and speed!
Christoffer Möller
COO at Snowfall
While working on Vitastiq, DECODE pulled all the stops. Of course, they delivered the project, but what’s also important is the relationship with us and the way they work—their communication was highly responsive, they were proactive and had that youthful zeal. I don’t know how they did it, but the whole time we were working together, we felt like we were their only client!
Dean Vranic
DECODE’s in-depth knowledge of creating real-time communication apps was exactly what we needed for such a demanding mobile app solution. Because of their high quality and speed, I consider them as a five-star agency.
Jack Templin
CEO at Thoughtcap
They brought in the expertise in the area of mobile application architecture, automated deployment & testing, introducing new development paradigms and workflows.

Next steps

We only take on projects we have the capacity to deliver to exceptional standards – and we never abandon you part-way through.

Over a relaxed call or two, we’d like to hear as much as possible about your project (fully NDA’d of course).

We’ll talk about:

  • Your expectations
  • Engineering seniority level you require
  • Technologies you need
  • Your vision

If we both feel we’re a great fit for each other, we can move on to the next step.

There are a few steps in this phase:

  • We’ll hand-pick a team based on your desired seniority level and other requirements.
  • We’ll send you their CVs so you’ll know every engineer working for you.
  • If necessary, we can set up interviews between you and every engineer.

Only when you’re 100% on board with our choice, we’ll go to the next phase.

If everything sounds good to you, and we have the availability to do a great job, we’re ready to get going.
