Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?
Our software allows our operations to service a large number of small business efficiently, so that we can scale without having to hire hundreds of people. At same time our customers absolutely love to use our software to hire, onboard and terminate employees. This kind of seamless experience would not be possible without the experience and dedication of our CleverLabs team.
How was project management arranged and how effective was it?
All developers are split into 3 teams - managed by on-shore development/project managers (all are named "Alex" BTW). This arrangement works really well for us, because each smaller team is capable of taking on about 2 decent size projects at a time.
What did you find most impressive about this company?
All of the developers CleverLabs hired are very passionate about their craft. Every day working with them we feel that they care: they love what they do and they're doing their best to build awesome software, so that everybody loves to come to work every day. CleverLabs developers are never shy with their feedback and ideas for improvements. Thanks to them we still love to work on our codebase, it doesn't feel like a 4 years old product - it still feels brand new. Their written and spoken English skills are very impressive too: all of them are great communicators and it is never a problem to talk to them, even though their first language is Russian.
Are there any areas for improvement?
There is not much they could improve or I can't think of anything right off the bat. One potential area for improvement is their work day schedule. CleverLabs developers are allowed to come to and leave office at any time: as long as they put in roughly 8 hours of work a day. Although we would love for them all to come and leave at about the same time - we never feel lack of availability. It feels like these guys are always ON. In most cases we get instant response any time of the day. :)
