The Process — How we get you from day one to launch and beyond.

Full service journey dark 1


Product discovery

You want your investments in the product to be backed by hard data and analysis, not guesswork.

That’s what we’ll accomplish in product discovery for you. Our teams of product managers, UX/UI designers, and solution architects will set the foundation for your product to succeed.

  • Validating your idea through user & market research.
  • Outlining the project timeline through careful time estimation.
  • Choosing the right set of features through discovery workshops.
  • Getting the first look at your product through wireframing & early design.
  • Choosing the best technology through tech analysis & architecture.
  • Choosing the engineering team by picking out the people with the right skills for the job.


Software product design

You’ll have a complete UX/UI design that we’ll seamlessly handoff to our engineers. If you already have a brand identity, we’ll build everything around your company guidelines to create something completely consistent with your established look and feel.

  • Bringing your product to life through detailed prototypes.
  • Speeding up the development process by using design systems.
  • Testing your product with real users using prototypes.


Software engineering

This is the most time-consuming and challenging part of the process. It’s also the phase we love doing the most since we’re engineers, first and foremost.

Throughout the years, we’ve perfected our software engineering methodologies and combined them with a meticulous QA strategy that ensures your product reaches the highest levels.

  • Implementing every feature we’ve planned out together.
  • Keeping consistent product quality through automated and manual testing.
  • Delivering iterations after every sprint to make sure you’re always in the loop.
  • Creating a fully functioning MVP you can bring to market.


Maintenance & growth

Building is just the beginning. When your product is ready for the world, we’ll help you release it smoothly, track its performance, run support and maintenance, and be on hand to continue its evolution so it stays indispensable.

  • Helping. you iterate meaningfully by setting up analytics tools and helping you understand users.
  • Keeping your product clean of bugs through monitoring and quality assurance.
  • Ensuring your product is up-to-date with all the latest technology.
  • Continuing maintenance and growth of your product for as long as you need it.

We’ll put your product first. Even before you.

We’ll help you succeed

By putting your users first, by caring for your business results, by not just coding mindlessly — we’ll create a software product that is high-quality, easy-to-use and profitable.

Before we start our partnership, we have to make sure we’re the right fit for you.

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, we’re ready to get started.

This could be the start of a great partnership

Want to get in touch? Just fill in the short form below, or skip to the bottom to arrange a chat direct with our client strategy specialist. Either way, we’ll be back in touch as soon as we can to arrange an informal call.

Don’t worry, any information you give us will only be stored for business purposes. Find out more in our Privacy Policy.

Still unsure about something?

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

There are several ideal key players during this phase:

  • Product manager
  • UX/UI designer
  • Software architect/team lead

There can also be other stakeholders depending on the project.

As our client, you’ll have direct contact with each member of your development team. We use tools such as Slack, Jira, Confluence, e-mail, and videoconferencing to keep our clients up to date.

We have weekly and daily standups where you can participate together with our entire team, or even work with them directly during in-person visits.

This smooth and transparent communication without a middleman increases efficiency, gives you full control over the project, and guarantees that the product will match your expectations.

Yes. In today’s environment, being agile is one of the most important things. Being agile doesn’t mean a lack of processes, but rather the opposite. Having good efficient processes and a strong working methodology helps us to be agile and at the same time organized and predictable.

If the UX and UI design of the app are not seamless and pixel-perfect, all the hard-core engineering efforts will fall short. All your marketing work will be for nothing too if you have a high churn rate caused by bad user experience.

Yes, of course. We have regular daily standups and sprint planning (every two or three weeks) as part of the Scrum methodology. You are welcome to participate in these meetings.

During daily standups we talk about our progress, challenges that we are managing and our plans for the ongoing sprint.

During sprint planning meetings we plan our roadmap for the next two or three weeks of work.
We also have retrospection meetings (looking back on the previous sprint, discussing achievements and things that we didn’t do, why we didn’t, analyzing the problem, and deciding what could be done better).

You will get regular demo builds so you can check if the mobile or web app we’re creating meets your requirements. You will have direct contact with every team member through Slack, video calls, and e-mail too.

You will have real-time access to our project management tools, documentation and source code repository so you can see how your project progresses in real-time.

At the beginning of each month you will also get a detailed time-sheet report for the previous month so you can see in detail how your team spent their time.
