Although we would love to work with freelancers more often, for reasons of scalability and quality assurance, we usually do not.
We follow industry best practices to ensure all of our team members are familiar with the IPR, security, and technical aspects of their work. The hiring process includes several steps, tests, and interviews and can take up to a few months.
Hiring your own software developers can be a really smart choice, however, recruitment process is time-consuming and the costs of keeping an in-house programming team are very high. You'll probably need to employ your own software engineers sooner or later but hiring us can help you save a lot of money and time (which is basically the same in a business project). Read our blog entry on that topic to learn more.
Well, no. People don't scale, tasks do. With the NerdCloud platform, you can focus on your core responsibilities. Simply delegate your technical tasks to us, to increase foresight and responsiveness, optimize your budget and estimations, and ensure your goal is reached on time, with quality work.We handle the HR requirements, as well as onboarding, quality assurance, and security.
With whatever we can. Preparing cost analysis, establishing team roles, creating roadmaps. Defining business goals, key business values, target users, main features, prioritising. We can find you similar projects that are already active on the market to benchmark against. We can assist you with creating user personas, mock-ups, user stories, time frame, establishing project status and preparing project estimation. We'll be happy to outline project specification, prepare wireframes, details concerning integrations with external services, API documentation, required features list.In terms of project development we prepare server-side architecture, front end, back end, graphic and UX design, and create back-office consoles.We are also happy to advise our customers in terms of budgeting, scheduling, risk management, and business model creation.
Well, the most important thing to know is what do you want to accomplish. Why do I need this software? What for? What should it do? Having a clear vision in mind is crucial when ordering a software application. You don't want to spend many months developing it with us without being sure what you need. If you have no experience in app development feel free to read our blog entry on that topic. We'll also be glad to help you get started, building projects from scratch is nothing new for us.
You certainly do not have to be a software development expert, that's what we're here for. We welcome your experience in that matter if you happen to have any, but are prepared to guide you through the whole process and explain everything. Focus on your needs and we'll deliver what you require.
We assign experienced, senior CTOs to each team to serve as your primary contact. Depending on which pricing tier you choose, they will supervise the quality and speed of the work, or act as full-service CTO.
Most of our users have their own CTO and developers. NerdCloud provides extra resources for the CTO. We often find the core development team (including the CTO) overwhelmed with maintenance tasks and smaller fixes. This means that they, especially CTO, are unable to provide the necessary support to other members of the management team, which can cause slowdowns, security issues, and missed opportunities.
We know very successful teams who operate without any in-house technical personnel at all. That said, in the long term, we recommend that all core team members work in-house.
MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is a product with just enough features to satisfy early customers and to provide feedback for future product development. In other words, it is a product built as quickly as possible with enough basic functionalities. This approach allows the implementation of a product on the market so the users can test it, you can gather feedback, and constantly improve your product. MVP provides cost-effectiveness and time savings.
We evaluate the result after every task, we test our work (we conduct both development and acceptance tests), we present it to you, we apply your feedback so you know you get what you are paying for.
The time required to deliver a product depends on the scope of the project and the type of product that will be built. We start cooperation with the concept stage of the project to understand the product’s needs and determine what is the proper way to develop it. After that, we are able to estimate the duration of product development.
Both have their benefits and flaws. Mobile apps are surely more expensive but can provide you with many more data collecting, monetisation capabilities than web applications. Progressive Web Apps are a good compromise between a mobile and web app. But remember that sooner or later you may need both mobile and web app and when that moment comes we are here for you :)
If you have an idea contact us by our online form, e-mail or phone. We'll meet and talk it over. Just be sure to prepare as much info about your idea as possible, it will smoothen the meeting and benefit further cooperation.
We’ll be more than happy to help you with that. Beginning with a UX Audit (if applicable) through improving your system architecture and adding new features.
Not at all! We want you to be sure you'll receive the product you desire. From the planning stage to each finished version, we invite you to evaluate and improve our work. Our philosophy is to work with the client, not merely finish given tasks. We are always ready to listen and communicate.
To give you a precise answer we must prepare a project scope and create a budget. We shall tell you how much of that scope can be completed within the budget and we'll be able to estimate how long will it take after at least a month of work.
We thoroughly monitor our developers and control how much time they spend on each task down to the exact minute.
We are used to scaling teams up or down. Depending on your timeline requirements and the volume of your tasks, we can quickly scale the team with dozens of developers per month.
Whether you want to expand your product or create a completely new one simultaneously, and then again focus only on one of your projects, we are always ready to adapt to your requirements. If the work is less intense team size can be reduced. When improvements need to be implemented fast, we can quickly assign additional team members to speed up each phase of the development process.
We deliver code.
