What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
They’ve allowed me to be very agile in terms of team scaling, providing the right resources when I need them. They always bring in very competent, pleasant people. Overall, the collaboration has allowed me to take on more projects, delegate a lot of the work, and do more direct project management with them.
How did CloudNesil perform from a project management standpoint?
The key developers all speak English well to very well, so management is not a problem. Some of the junior developers are not as proficient, but there’s always someone else with them as they work in teams. We’ve not had any problems.
The documentation is as detailed and appropriate as necessary. Depending on the guidelines we provide them, they draft the requirements and provide us with the required amount of detail.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They’re always available and will extend their work hours if there’s a critical issue. They’re diligent, professional, and take their work seriously. I know I can rely on them; I wouldn’t have taken on some of these projects if I wasn’t sure that I had a partner like CloudNesil.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Their competence is really good in a lot of domains, so they can contribute in many different ways, from low-level networking to infrastructure management, back- and frontend development, and even security. I sometimes wish they could provide even more developers, but they have other clients and can become stretched.
They’re quite conservative in how they grow. I have a longstanding relationship with their founder, so I know how they work: he’s very diligent about onboarding more developers. They’re quite careful about whom they bring on to not downgrade the quality of the service.
Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?
