The Review
Feedback summary: 

Beyond the quality of their development work, Geomotiv also provides thought leadership in coming up with strategic solutions.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are an advertising technology company focusing on the development of technologies for the automation and targeting of linear television. I am the chief executive officers and one of the co-founders.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Geomotiv?

We needed to develop a platform in an evolving, developing field. There were many dependencies still in the process, and we needed an Agile development partner to help us with that.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The platform used in development was Java-based, and it required integration with several APIs. The role of our platform is the automation of a media buying process and to connect various sources of media inventory and third-party data.

How did you come to work with Geomotiv?

We conducted a search process where we looked at many firms, narrowed them down, and interviewed the top firm, which was Geomotiv. We had a thorough screening process which allowed us to understand their capabilities, projects that they have worked on in the past, and their references. We initially gave them a smaller project at inception as a test, which went well, and then we expanded the scope of the work from there. They were the first agency to work on our project.

How much have you invested with Geomotiv?

That is confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

Since June 2014 and ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since we are still in the early stages, the feedback I have is qualitative. We have worked with a number of brands and agencies that already gave very strong reviews and feedback on our platform.

How did Geomotiv perform from a project management standpoint?

They do a good job of adhering to an efficient process for managing dates and deadlines and accomplishing the tasks that need to be done.

What did you find most impressive about Geomotiv?

Beyond their development work, they are a great thought partner. In the past, I have had experiences with development firms where you had to be very specific on your requirements and what you are looking for. With our business in an emerging space, they have been a very effective thought partner in thinking about solutions to our problems.

Are there any areas Geomotiv could improve?

The one thing I would like done is to manage deadlines that we work with efficiently since dates change, especially with a tough assignment like ours.

5.0

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The client praises Geomotiv for finding engineers with the right skill-set and capability to accommodate to their culture. Geomotiv responds well to feedback and changing requests.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are an internet advertising company specializing in the automation of advertising. Traditionally we serve the publishing industry and help them to monetize ad spots on their websites, mobile applications, or other digital platforms. We've now moved to a more cohesive platform and are building out automation technologies to help advertisers automate their purchasing.

I am the senior vice president of the technology buyer side.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Geomotiv?

We couldn't hire smart people fast enough on shore. It takes a while to find the right people with the right skill sets, experience, and culture. In order to move faster with our platform development, we decided to formulate a relationship with an external company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Geomotiv finds the candidates and pre-screens them according to our specifications. We then formally interview the candidates and hire them through Geomotiv. They then co-manage the engineers and provide them with office space, computers, and tools. We then treat the engineers as an extension of our team. Work was primarily around data technologies like Hadoop, Spark, MapReduce, and other big data frameworks. They also help us with high-performance and high-scale development for our real-time platform for buying ads.

How did you come to work with Geomotiv?

I've had really good success in the past working with consulting agencies in Eastern Europe. They generally have a lot of good, high-quality candidates coming from good schools. The company that I used to work with shifted their focus, so I was looking for a new partner. I met with the two principals of Geomotiv and we talked about the type of work they've done in the past. I checked their references for what they've done with other companies. I talked about what we were looking for in the way of skill sets and gave them job descriptions. We agreed that it would be most efficient to find a pool of eight to ten candidates that would work with us to have a sufficient team size. They were very accommodative to helping us move faster almost immediately and then scale up quickly.

How much have you invested with Geomotiv?

The investment started at $5,000 a month and is up to $36,000 a month now.

What is the status of this engagement?

We have been working with Geomotiv from November 2013 to present day.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

My team leads are very happy working with them. The quality of candidates that we get from the interview process is good. Geomotiv was flexible about accommodating our hiring and management processes. They do first level candidate screening and do a pretty good job. The success rate post their screening is probably 80%. They're finding good engineers with the right skills and culture for our needs quickly.

What did you find most impressive about Geomotiv?

I've really only worked with two companies from that area of the world, and I was really happy with both of them. They're very responsive to our needs. Early on, the quality of some of the code wasn't as good because they weren't writing sufficient tests. We gave them some feedback and they took it to heart and set up an internal process so the people who were better at development/testing were then mentoring the new hires on the team how to do the automated testing in the way that we required. Their flexibility and following our guidance is something they do well with.

I'd also say they do a good job of putting up with our dysfunctionality. We're somewhat of a bureaucratic organization, and they're pretty patient with our financial, accounting, and legal teams who make them jump through hoops.

4.0
Overall Score It is a resounding success.
  • 4.0 Scheduling
    ON TIME / DEADLINES
    We are an agile organization, so it's about team-based estimations. Our team-based estimates are pretty good, but agile is about constant improving so we can always do better.
  • 5.0 Cost
    Value / within estimates
    I think they're half the cost of what an engineer would cost over here, but the value is what's really important. In general, it's pretty good when measuring the costs versus benefits.
  • 5.0 Quality
    Service & deliverables
    The quality at this point is really good. We get good candidates to hire, and the quality of their work and tests are quite good. They interact with the team and adapt to our team's culture very well.
  • 5.0 NPS
    Willing to refer
    I would definitely recommend them. I've already recommended them to several of my colleagues running other areas of engineering within the company.
