The Review
Feedback summary: 

Since iRonin joined the team, the site’s turn rate has dropped by over 50%. The developers’ expertise, proactive contributions, and consistent quality testing continue to encourage increasing market success. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Back in the agency days, we would pay $3,000 for every referral hire we could get. We were really desperate for talent. We had a lot of turnover with people going to other companies like Adobe. Referrals were a really tough challenge, especially for our field of information technology.

I had been talking to a few friends and decided to create a solution for matching so we could make this whole process easier and really help employees who wanted to make a bonus but didn’t know who to refer. We started EmployeeReferrals.

I went through a lot of contractors both outsourced and local, hiring people and letting them go until I found the few that I ended up keeping. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with iRonin?

I and one other person were trying to get our website going. After a couple of months, we asked for a lot of help to get the features ready for the market. I brought iRonin to work on EmployeeReferrals’s platform/website after it had been already built. I and my colleague person are still working on it today. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Integrations are really the key for us because everybody wants to get accurate data. They want to make sure that their systems are syncing. That’s the core of what we asked iRonin to help us with. We give them complete control over the integrations and depend on them to make sure that when we launch a new company and need something set up, they’re going to get it done quickly.

When working with iRonin, our code quality improved. They used a lot of best practices for design patterns. They made some of the repeatable activities we had to do more scalable as far as launching new companies. It was very easy for us to implement and deploy because of the structure they set up. It’s been really helpful for us, especially knowing and having so much experience with other contractors. We’re happy to have found ones that produce high-quality code with good test coverage. It really took the burden off me for some of that design work.

We now deliver the requirements but do not put together the team. We’ve changed how we do things. Before, I used to do a lot of project management, but now we’ve requested a project manager on their end. We do stand-up meetings with their project manager. He delegates to the developers there and makes sure that everything gets done.

How did you come to work with iRonin?

We found them initially on Upwork. With contractors, I like to give them all a task so that I’m testing a lot of them in parallel. I keep the ones that work out. I’m sure that we had 5 or 6 in parallel that we were testing at the same time, and we decided to keep iRonin.

When I initially hired iRonin, we had a contractor that I’d found and worked with for a long time after going through 10 other different contractors who weren’t from iRonin. When iRonin suggested we get another developer, we did; we got such consistent results from them that I let a lot of the other contractors go. I gave them free reign to keep scaling their team. We could keep giving them responsibilities, and they met our expectations.

How much have you invested with iRonin?

On average, we spend about $400,000–$500,000 yearly.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them at the beginning of 2012. We’re still working with them now since they’re still adding new features to the platform. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve seen our turn rate go down significantly, decreasing at least by half since we’ve had iRonin stabilize our system in all the odds and ends that we need. That is really important to us.

With a lot of other contractors and agencies that we have worked with, few do test-driven development or release code with tests. Just based on their types of deadlines, they get done what they can get done. But, iRonin consistently releases tests to ensure everything is good quality.

Also, they have a lot of suggestions for refactoring and optimization. If they notice that something is performing poorly from another developer, they will go out of their way to improve the overall code base instead of only handling the things that they are directly responsible for, which is something that not a lot of other contractors do.

How did iRonin perform from a project management standpoint?

They do their tasks in a standard Scrum sprint. We used Trello, a Kanban-style project management, and HipChat for communication. We’re online chatting all the time and do video standups weekly where we talk face-to-face with our project manager over there.

We initially wanted control over each developer, but I think we found a happy compromise just having a project manager in the standup meetings. We wanted more control over the tasks but found that having video calls and including the project manager in the standup meetings alleviated that need. He’s in a group with everyone else we work with, so he feels like a part of our decision-making process. We only interact with him and try not to interrupt anyone else.

What did you find most impressive about iRonin?

There were times that we had deadlines and needed to get things done. They were more than accommodating at giving us extra resources and making sure that we still hit the budget we’d set, even though they gave us additional resources. They did that a few times, and it was a lifesaver. They absorbed the cost of those resources. We’ve been sheltered from training costs as well. They would handle all the training when they brought new people on, along with anything that they needed to do to get a new developer up to speed.

Are there any areas iRonin could improve?

A lot of concerns that you have when working with overseas people involve delays. That’s the only thing that I can think of. For the most part, they try to work in parallel with our time zones. There were occasions that we needed an answer on something late in the afternoon, and they were gone. That’s one of the typical problems when working with outsourced contractors.

    The agency where I worked before charged double the price, and I think iRonin’s code quality is probably better than what we produced there. Because of that, I think they’re well worth the money.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The bespoke solution easily handled high business volumes, and iRonin.IT’s seamless integration with in-house staff increased production and improved output quality within a few weeks. The team’s responsiveness, scalability, and innovative ideas continue to impress. 

BACKGROUND

I’m the former CTO of a financial services company catering to underbanked customers in the U.S. Because our customers didn't fit the usual financial/banking model, we provided alternatives to loans and credit cards. I oversaw operations related to IT, software development, and data services as well as recruiting in a competitive market. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

Building our own system to manage customers’ accounts was a huge priority. Since many banks considered our customers to be higher-risk, few of the typical credit score services or applications met our needs, so we started to build our own platform for originating, underwriting, and servicing debt.

We had been using off-the-shelf software that couldn’t handle the volume of business we had. As a result, money was getting lost in the system. 

SOLUTION

When our small internal team had built and understood enough of the system, we decided to scale our resources in both operations and development. iRonin.IT responded to my posts on a group forum. I chose to hire them primarily because we could communicate easily. We quickly learned that they had top-notch skills as well. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

iRonin.IT augmented our internal team in every way, from planning and design to code reviews. Both teams quickly agreed on processes and communication methods, and our production and quality increased after only a couple weeks.

iRonin.IT continues to be a great partner. After starting with 2 developers, we found 5 more by the end of the year with their help.
