What was the scope of their involvement?
They are quite independent. They give us access to their system so that we can monitor what they’re doing if we want to, but they don’t really require our active participation. We are able to give their project manager a brief on priorities and they take it from there. They run their own sprints and they have their own testers, developers and technical leads.
Thus far, we’ve been dealing with simpler websites. They helped us migrate a 15-page website and are now creating another website of a similar size from the designer’s prototype. They are also working on a more complex website that involves calculators, maps and interactive features.
Our websites target different audiences. Our departments target venture capitalists, consumers, investors, and financial advisors. Our websites are mainly created for information, and for giving some background on what our company does.
What is the team dynamic?
I don't really know how many people are working on this particular project, but I work closely with two people. One of them is the project manager and the other one is the technical lead. From what I see on JIRA, there are about three or four more people working, but we don't really communicate.
How did you come to work with Knubisoft?
We found Knubisoft after we had a not so successful experience with another developer. They helped us finish the existing project and we liked the way they worked so we brought them on for additional projects.
As far as I know, our CTO used their services in the past, but I don't know the details. When we started this series of projects, we were trying a series of different developers. At some point, we realized that we needed to narrow it down, so we shortlisted three. Knubisoft is definitely the first choice every time we start any project.
How much have you invested with them?
On projects that they are working on with me, it's about £15,000. However, we have different accounts for different projects, so I'm not sure how much the total is for the other projects.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in April of this year. They are also working with different teams at my company on other projects. We are giving more and more work to them.
