THE CHALLENGE

One of the biggest challenges for any technology business expanding to new regions and countries is to ensure that their IT teams and software can continuously scale-up, always being ready to capture new opportunities in any part of the world. In addition, companies must also ensure that their IT specialists are well-versed in the latest technologies and best practices for software development. They must also ensure that the code is well-documented, tested, and secure.

The client was in need of React developers and PHP engineers in order to upgrade and develop some critical components of their platform, as well as to fulfil a number of integrations with third-party services. The timeframe was pretty aggressive as their newly acquired business in the USA was dependent on their ability to deliver upon these requirements.

THE SOLUTION

Just before Capaciteam started working on the job descriptions provided by the client, our delivery and technical teams did a thorough review of the codebase, database structure, existing APIs, libraries, and documentation. We did all this to better understand the peculiarities of the system and the project environment, as well as any potential issues or areas of improvement that could be addressed in the job.

Our developers discovered a great deal of legacy code, but the client was not in a position to refactor it at that time. We had to consider the peculiarity of that circumstance in order to select developers who had experience in working with legacy code and were able to quickly identify and address any issues that arose.

To meet the timing requirements, we provided the client with a transparent roadmap containing clear milestones for the provision of resources. Together with the client, we set deadlines for CV submission as well as interview and start dates. The roadmap also included a timeline for the client to provide feedback and approval of the candidates.

We identified potential candidates in our extensive pool of resources and our staffing team then conducted initial screenings to assess the candidates’ qualifications and experience. After that, we presented the client with a shortlist of the most suitable profiles.

Once the team was put together, we provided support throughout the onboarding and development process. Throughout the process, we kept the client updated on the progress and provided regular feedback and guidance on any issues that arose. We also provided technical support and advice on best practices for developing the application. Additionally, we provided guidance on how to best utilize the various tools and technologies available to the team.
