What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
The quality of work is so good because they’re brilliant engineers. I used to ask some of my high-level product connections to oversee LambdaWorks’ output, but I don’t need to anymore. Their team doesn’t take any shortcuts either, which has helped us avoid creating technical debt.
How did LambdaWorks perform from a project management standpoint?
When we’re in our routine, they set the schedule and provide weekly updates in a concise way, which is nice. The team communicates over video conference meetings, and we’re all in the same Slack channel.
I’m now able to trust a lot of decisions that they make because I realized that I was inevitably saying yes to most things. That has allowed us to define levels of importance for certain requirements because they know what we’re doing and can bring their own level of creativity.
What did you find most impressive about them?
At the end of the day, it’s their quality that sticks out. They could charge a lot more if they were based in the US because their skills are that good, and they produce work relatively fast. I’ve worked with numerous levels of engineering, and their resources of some of the best I’ve ever seen.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Outside of the time difference, I don’t really have anything to add.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
LambdaWorks specializes in scaling quality early-stage products. That means that it’s important to really give them detailed requirements — not just on short-term goals, but also looking at where you see the product five years from now. Keeping that in mind will help them build in the right flexibility into your product, which saves time and costs.
