Arohatech Agile Team consisted of: 1 Certified Scrum Master 1 Project Manager 1 UI Designer 2 Backend Developers 2 Front end Developers 1 DevOps 1 Tester We liked the dedicated project manager approach ArohaTech takes. Some companies switch them around so no one person has an overview of the project. The people assigned to the project saw the project through.
