Feedback summary: 

While the development is ongoing, the process has been a smooth collaboration between the two teams. Brainhub possesses the technical expertise and project management skills necessary for detailed projects. Their team is adaptable and willing to learn new technologies to facilitate the project. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

DMX is a vision-driven, end-to-end enterprise platform for the automotive business. I am a co-founder and Head of Product & Technology for Dealer Market Exchange. I am focused on leading the architecture, build and deployment of the DMX platform.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Brainhub?

Brainhub has been hired to support the development and growth of the DMX platform. It has gone through iterations that include two web apps (React) and three mobile apps (React Native). We also have an extensive Node.js-based back end that supports these client apps.

What were your goals for this project?

The first goal was to gain velocity in adding new features and resolving defects. Additionally, web developers from Brainhub were working on UX/UI improvements.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We initially came across Brainhub via a post on Quora.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Core technologies in use are: JavaScript, React, Redux, redux-saga, React Native, Node.js, MongoDB, Redis, RabbitMQ and CircleCI. The backend comprised of more than 20 microservices and many custom libraries. Brainhub’s biggest contribution was helping us to reign-in our test code coverage and build out a very comprehensive Dev Ops solution and architecture.

With their help, we’ve now got rock-solid deployment mechanisms built and in place that even include custom Slackbot integrations for handling deployments, failure and outage messaging and general management of globally-deployed services.

What was the team composition?

Brainhub shored up our team with key additions in web development, QA and backend development. They quickly rose to be thought leaders and architects in our project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

As this is an ongoing project, it is core the operations of DMX.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We have an agile-based approach (mixing Scrum and Kanban). Scrum artifacts allowed us to divide the work into sprints having a sprint review, a retrospective, a backlog grooming and planning of the next sprint. On the other hand, the Kanban artifacts allowed us to be more flexible, having some space for resolving blockers (e.g., a given backend story blocks one or many webs or mobile stories). It also allowed us fixing production bugs.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The people from Brainhub are highly-skilled and they work hard to achieve our goals. Even if some new technologies are required at a given moment, they learn it very fast.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Additional development resources in React Native would be nice.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder and CEO of Venture Harbour, a digital innovation studio that creates ambitious online ventures that transform how marketers and entrepreneurs grow their businesses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Brainhub?

We were looking to build a simple MacOS app in ElectronJS that helps people focus and get into their workflow easier. We'll do this by encouraging users to set a goal for the day and then break their tasks into multiple sessions to achieve the goal.

What were your goals for this project?

We set out to develop the MVP on time and budget.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were looking for experts in ElectronJS, and they were one of 4–5 vendors we considered.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

When a user enters a session, the app will block distracting applications and websites and play concentration music. At the end of a session, the user will have a break before entering the next one.

Brainhub was responsible for performing a technical feasibility analysis and building the MVP from scratch. As part of this effort, they've performed business analyses and requirements gathering based on specifications, designs, and workshops.

What was the team composition?

We're working with three JavaScript developers and a project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We have user KPIs we’re expecting to track, but because the product hasn’t yet been released, there’s no data to measure.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We have no complaints in this regard; project management is good. We're using JIRA as a project management tool and Slack for direct communication between developers. They communicate well and their response time is short. Their approach to solving any issues is open and proactive too, so they don’t hesitate to present their own vision of how things should be done.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They’re technical experts who aren’t afraid to speak up when they think something isn’t working properly or could be done better. They address any doubts we have, and communication is usually quick and efficient. Also, you can tell that they’re truly invested in the project, which leads to a high-quality final product.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Their rates are quite high, and sometimes project management slips. But, generally, this is offset by the quality of development.

BACKGROUND

I’m the CEO of Authoreon. Our goal is decentralizing authorization, authentication, verification, and certification for consumers, corporations, governments, and organizations. We aim to prevent fraud, cyberattacks, material and immaterial identity theft, counterfeits, and all sorts of unauthorized instances and processes.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Brainhub?

We were looking for a partner to develop a few projects in React/React Native for our ecosystem.

What were your goals for this project?

We set out to build 2–3 mobile MVPs of products around our ecosystem.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We’ve known each other for a few years while we were working together on different startups in Germany. I knew I could trust them and that they specialized in JavaScript. Therefore, it was an easy choice for us.

Describe the project in detail.

Brainhub built apps from scratch with JavaScript (especially React and React Native). They helped us with architecture construction, DevOps, and UX/UI—everything you need from a supplier.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a full product team (delivery manager, developers, business analyst, UX/UI designer) on their side.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

They delivered a working project before my deadline, so we start testing even faster than expected.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We used Jira, Slack, and Zoom, resulting in a very effective workflow.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They’re expertise in React/React Native. They’ve been working with those technologies for the last three years and they nailed it. If there’s an appropriate open-source technology, they use it. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can’t think of one.

We hired Brainhub to lead React app development.

What were your goals for this project?

My company hoped to increase conversion rates, implement new features, and test technology on the frontend.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We sought JavaScript experts that were particularly skilled in React. My team found Brainhub through an online search and liked their website. We confirmed the engagement after a phone call with one of Brainhub’s co-founders.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Utilizing React on the frontend, Brianhub integrated new landing pages, designs, and features into our existing app. They advised my team on what components and opensource solutions to use so that we did not have to rewrite the entire codebase.

Brainhub made sure they understood our goals and how we wanted to achieve them. They took complete ownership of their work.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The cost of the discovery phase initially deterred us. However, we would have agreed to it if Brainhub had better explained the benefits of this phase.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the co-founder and president of Life in Mobile. We build solutions that allow marketers to better engage with customers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Brainhub?

We hired Brainhub to develop a single page application (SPA) using JavaScript.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to create an engaging SPA to collect leads for a traffic-heavy website. We decided to make it a browser-based game.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were recommended to us by a company they had worked with before. We also considered two other vendors, but they lacked experience with React and Node.js.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They were responsible not only for development but also for shaping our scope and recommending technologies. We began with a short, foundation-laying workshop with their delivery manager and senior developer. Afterward, their business analyst prepared documentation and they moved into development.

What was the team composition?

We worked with two full-stack developers, a business analyst, a manual tester, and a delivery manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

They delivered ahead of schedule and under budget. The product met our client’s expectations, which earned us a long-term contract.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

All communication was handled over Slack and Asana. It was effective and seamless.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their developers were not only developers but consultants as well. They asked a lot of questions and wanted to understand why we asked for the features we did. They were both really experienced with JavaScript (especially React).

Are there any areas for improvement?

I would love for them to extend their technical expertise to cover PHP so we could do more projects together.

Feedback summary: 

Still in development, the tool has received positive feedback from key stakeholders. Brainhub’s ability to adapt to and communicate about ever-evolving specifications helps make their code relatively bug-free. Their proactive style justifies the investment and makes them a valuable partner.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there. 

My company is a financial/market research company based in Europe, with a few offices around the world.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Brainhub?

We needed help developing an internal communication tool. We didn't want to use an off-the-shelf tool like Slack.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Brainhub started by talking to us about what we’re looking for. They took our requirements and built a robust communication tool with our own code base, using TypeScript and React.js. That way, we can add additional features in the future. They suggested that we do UX testing in the office with our employees. 

What is the team composition?

My main point of contact and the first person I spoke to there is Patryk (delivery manager, Brainhub). We work with a project manager/scrum master, a senior developer, two medium level developers, and a junior frontend developer. A couple of times we needed additional design work and they’d add a designer to the team as well. 

How did you come to work with Brainhub?

I found them on Clutch. I needed people that knew TypeScript and React.js. Very few people work in TypeScript, so my search returned only 3–4 agencies doing projects. I contacted Brainhub, and Patryk got back to me quickly.

How much have you invested with them? 

They charge in Euros, but I think it’s about $120,000 USD.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in November 2018, and the project is close to wrapping up. There are probably 1–2 sprints left to go.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’ll have more results in a few weeks. The feedback I have right now is that the user testing greatly improved the design. It was the first time I've gotten solid, tangible evidence of what was wrong with the design. I wouldn't have resolved those issues as quickly if I’d tried to do this on my own or with freelancers. 

How did Brainhub perform from a project management standpoint?

I've done a lot of projects and worked with at least 15 freelancers. Brainhub has been the best by far. Patryk, in particular, is excellent. They’re actually running ahead of schedule, which has never happened before in my experience. I got skeptical that they’d misquoted or overcharged us. I had their code reviewed by my top freelancers. They said Brainhub’s code is a 9 out of 10, which is incredible. They use the latest tech stack for React in addition to TypeScript and PostScript. It’s cutting-edge technology that only a few other companies are using. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

I've never worked with a firm that takes as much responsibility as they do. I've always had to micromanage. It’s different with Brainhub. We wanted to implement push notifications, which is quite complicated. They came back within a couple of hours, having done the research and landed on five options. They gave me the pros and cons, as well as how long it would take to implement each. 

Are there any areas they could improve? 

I didn't want this just to be a glowing review, but honestly no. We had a challenge communicating with one employee, but they were removed from the project. Everyone else is fluent in English.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be available. They hate it when a client gives them a brief and then doesn't talk to them again for weeks. If you respond to their questions within 48 hours, they will be super happy.

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 am the technical director of Paradox Interactive, a game publishing company and development studio.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Brainhub?

I hired Brainhub to work alongside our internal team to build a new version of our game launcher, a desktop application that serves as our digital distribution platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Brainhub’s developers have expertise working with the Electron and React web technologies that we needed for frontend development of our game launcher. The project they’ve worked on was built from scratch, but it was inspired and based off of our previous version of the software—which we have deprecated in anticipation of the launch of the new version.

When we sell our games, this is the platform through which our customers can download, install, and play the game on their computer. We also use the application to post news or updates about the game or events that we have. Our customers use this application to access their accounts and manage the game or games that they’ve purchased from us.

What is the team composition?

We requested four engineers and a half-time project manager to coordinate between our two offices in Poland and Sweden.

How did you come to work with Brainhub?

I searched for companies that had demonstrated success in working with the React and Electron technologies. Brainhub had the most case studies and examples of their past work. They also responded very quickly, which made it easier to rule out other companies that took longer to reply.

Brainhub stood out because they didn’t over-promise anything in our initial conversations. In fact, they felt the timeline was unrealistic and too short and that our budget was a poor estimate. I appreciated their honesty. I had tailored our estimates in a way that would make companies want to pick out the red flags, and Brainhub succeeded in doing so.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent less than €500,000 (approximately $567,000 USD) at this point.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in May 2018. Our original timeline called for a February 2019 launch, but because the game project this application is tied to and dependent upon was delayed until April, we will finish this project in April as well. We have an ongoing engagement right now, and after our launch, I’ve decided that I’ll keep them on a recurring contract with a monthly retainer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have user KPIs we’re expecting to track, but because the product has not yet been released, there are no data to measure.

How did Brainhub perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve been very impressed. I had initial concerns about English communication issues, but we’ve had no trouble in that regard. Overall, they are quick to resolve any errors, and they are proactive when they feel that something—technologically or interpersonally—is not working well.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciate that they don’t necessarily always follow the adage of the customer always being right. They are comfortable to push back when they believe something is misguided or miscommunicated. This has led to quite a few significant improvements to features that otherwise would have been subpar or not functional at all if they had not spoken up. In the same vein, they are also respectful when we acknowledge their concerns, but we insist on going in a certain direction.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. We work with a lot of vendors, and Brainhub is, by far, the one we’ve had the fewest problems with during the course of our business. I’m more than happy to continue doing business with them for the foreseeable future.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s critical that Brainhub understands the context of the project and is treated as part of the team. Our internal team and the Brainhub staff work as one, and that’s been a great advantage because they end up caring more about the product, which doesn’t always happen with outsourced projects.

The number of clients has grown from 10 to 60–70 and the platform gets about 200,000 unique visitors per month. Brainhub’s communication is great compared to other vendors. Their technical expertise is outstanding, however, they need improvement in scalability and consistency with project managers.

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 am the founder of a company that builds websites for real estate agents and provides marketing services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Brainhub?

We were trying to build a new platform and needed someone to augment my software engineering team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We basically took an existing platform and built a number of new administrative tools to add more functionalities on top of it. We also built out a number of new design templates on our platform that we can use for our clients.

The platform allows us to create high-end real estate websites and then gives our clients — who are real estate agents — access to an admin panel where they can add their listings and the properties to the website. We have CRM [customer relationship management] and CMS [content management system] functionalities. They’re working on integrating SalesForce with SimplyRETS for MLS listings.

Brainhub took over an existing infrastructure. We did some refactoring in AngularJS, which was what the original platform was built on to react to a component based system; Brainhub was heavily involved in that. Over the last year, they did some DevOps-related tasks, setting up the server environment correctly. Node.js is what the application is built in with MongoDB. The database runs on Webpack and SCSS. We implemented Docker in the container base. They implemented Jenkins. They implemented some testing modules. Over the last year or so since we’ve worked together, at most times they’ve had someone continuously working with the rest of our team.

How did you come to work with Brainhub?

It was an introduction by a friend of mine who knew one of the founders of Brainhub.

How much have you invested with Brainhub?

We have spent about $150,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them July 2016 and have been working together since.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

We’ve grown from having 10 clients or so to now having 60–70. There’s been quite a bit of growth in the client base, but also on the platform itself. We have about 200,000 unique visitors per month.

How did Brainhub perform from a project management standpoint?

Project management was very good. For an outsourced firm, they’re top notch in communication compared to what I’ve seen from other companies, and they’re also very professional.

They have a sort of project manager even though it’s not a true project manager; it’s someone who is organizing the project and who speaks English fluently. I also had direct contact with the developer and their CTO, who both also speak English pretty well. From a communication perspective, it was really great.

What did you find most impressive about Brainhub?

I would say their technical expertise and raw talent are what most impresses me. It’s unique to have an outsourced company that stays on top of things. They’re on the cutting edge when it comes to knowing the different trends in the market and are on par with most U.S. firms that I’ve dealt with.

Are there any areas Brainhub could improve?

They’re not that big of a company, so if you want to scale up quickly, they can’t do it right away. You will have to wait about two months or so when another project ends for them to be able to put someone else on your project.

The quality wasn’t as consistent as far as project management; throughout the year, we’ve had different people working in different capacities while organizing the project. It was always good, but it was great when their CTO was involved. There have been some inconsistencies depending on who is in charge of the project, although they communicate well when there’s a change of personnel. They’ve gone above and beyond to correct things, even giving discounts when something wasn’t communicated correctly. They’re very invested in making this project work.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Brainhub?

They’re at their best when you have a clearly defined and somewhat contained project. If you have very clear expectations and talk those through with them, then they’re going to be very good at making progress and communicating it well. They do their best work when you give them the freedom to do things the way they want to solve them and basically do a project-based basis.

Feedback summary: 

The finished solution is of satisfactory quality. Brainhub’s responsiveness, consistent turnaround time, and technical proficiency contributed to a productive partnership. One area that could be improved is the onboarding of new staff. 

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Our company deals with equipment maintenance. We have 50 employees. I lead all of the digital staff, including the team that developed the software to monitor our machines. The team also delivers that software to clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Brainhub?

We wanted to develop a software that would track the relevant service data of the machines we are maintaining and give this tool to our clients, allowing them to evaluate the current condition of their equipment.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Brainhub built the software on our request for a company that maintains cranes and doors. With Brainhub, we developed software that allows this client to see relevant machine data, service data, and inspection data online.

I think Brainhub used Node.js and React Native to build the software, which is based online and is accessible via mobile phone and desktop browsers. No matter which device or browser our client uses, they can access the data of any crane by scanning a QR code with a phone. The solution doesn't involve real-time data or sensors.

How did you come to work with Brainhub?

Brainhub was recommended by a friend of a friend, who convinced me to use them. I thought they seemed like a great option.

How much have you invested with Brainhub?

We started with a project that cost around €5,000 [$5,700]. So far, we have spent €10,000 [$11,400].

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Brainhub in March 2016, and our work together ended in March 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How did Brainhub perform from a project management standpoint?

They are quick to respond and deliver on time, more or less. They report to us on a weekly basis, especially during busy phases. We had about 3 resources from Brainhub, but I’m not sure what their specialties were. One was a backend server guy, and another provided coding.

What did you find most impressive about Brainhub?

Brainhub works quickly and communicates well.

Are there any areas Brainhub could improve?

There’s always room for improvement. For example, Brainhub changed their team somewhat during the project, and the new team members weren’t as knowledgeable as the former members. That could have been improved.
