How did you select this vendor?
We found Flatirons Development through AngelList. We interviewed approximately five different agencies but felt the most comfortable with Flatirons Development because they gave us an outline and strategy that was easy to understand. They were also completely upfront about costs from the very beginning.
Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.
Flatirons Development started by helping us implement new gifting flows into our website, but it quickly turned into an ongoing consultation/retainer role since we were extremely pleased with the initial work they did. Their team first had to get an understanding of the specific tech language, processes and flows that our initial developer built. We didn’t have proper documentation to share with Flatirons Development, but they were easily able to understand everything within the first couple hours and even gave us advice on where we could improve things on our website.
It was clear that we had a lot of tech debt from our previous development team, though Flatirons Development went above and beyond in helping address it. They also helped implement reviews, press and other features that have dramatically improved our business.
The coding languages and custom integrations include but are not limited to: Ruby on Rails, React, HTML/CSS, Postgres, and Stripe. Flatiron Development helped walk us through our current build and made things extremely easy for us to understand. Additionally, they now help us with ongoing refinements that increase our conversion rate and customer experience throughout the website.
What was the team composition?
Our primary point of contact is Mike. We also work with a developer and have experienced no drop-off in performance, speed, or quality of work.
