The Review
Feedback summary: 

AktaryTech provided high-quality, reliable developers who embedded with internal teams very well to help the company prepare a platform for an important event. They were also very proactive, timely, and collaborative from start to finish. 

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the co-founder and head of technology for an advertising technology company in the digital video and linear television space. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with AktaryTech?

We needed to fill a staff augmentation role for frontend development work.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

AktaryTech provided a few frontend development resources, embedding with our internal teams to assist in developing our platform. They built out screens, workflows, and some of the UI, using React Native, JavaScript, and other technologies. 

What is the team composition? 

We worked with 2–3 developers, who collaborated with our team in two-week sprints.

How did you come to work with AktaryTech?

I knew David (Founder, AktaryTech) through the Node.js meetup scene in Los Angeles.

How much have you invested with them?

We've invested between $200,000–$300,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from around July 2018–January 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The additional support AktaryTech provided helped get our platform ready for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). They helped us onboard a new batch of business through the work we were able to demo at CES. We already have a great in-house team, but AktaryTech was able to provide resources on par with the quality of our own staff. 

How did AktaryTech perform from a project management standpoint?

Since I didn't hear anything from my team, I know AktaryTech's project management skills were adequate. They used Jira to track work, but also embedded with our team on site. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They hit the ground running and were effective from their first sprint.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not particularly. One person on their team wasn't a great cultural fit for us, but it didn't cause any issues and he stopped working on our account at some point.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Try to feel out whether their team is a good cultural fit the same way you would if they were going to be joining the team as an employee.
