What was the scope of their involvement?
Evolvice Team helped find and recruit the remote team who is based in Ukraine. After the recruitment process was completed, they helped with several administrative processes such as paying salaries and providing office space.
What is the team dynamic?
They have a team of recruiters and their networks help them find the right people. The recruitment process takes between 4 weeks and 2 months. In my case, putting together the team of 7 developers took 2 and a half months, which is quite fast.
During the recruitment process, I decided which people to onboard and negotiated salaries with the developers directly. We found this to be a transparent approach for us, as a client. We knew that we were not being overcharged as we negotiated salaries with the developers directly.
How did you come to work with Evolvice Team?
Our CTO conducted a couple of interviews, as well as on-site checks with 5 or 6 companies in total.
I had a history with one of Evolvice Team’s founders, as previously I had managed a remote team in Ukraine for another company and that had been a good experience. I think there is a large talent pool of developers in Ukraine.
Evolvice Team charges their markup in the form of a management or administrative fee, and their transparency in this area was also an important factor. The fact that I knew one of the founders made the decision easier for me
How much have you invested with them?
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with Evolvice Team in July 2016. The project is ongoing, and we’re actually expanding the teams. At the moment, there are 4 scrum teams working in total, with 4-6 developers each.
