What was the scope of their involvement?
Our first collaboration was a workforce issue; we needed some people to do specific work. Mad Devs stepped in and helped us get several pieces of our project and product done. After that, we continued working with Mad Devs on specifications, development, and testing for the security modules of a hosted SaaS service. Some were in Python while others were in Solidity, which is specific to blockchain and Ethereum.
We’re working on a big project that’s just about to launch. We’ve had a lot of milestones involving acquiring and building technology. They’re also integrating it into a platform that we’ve created.
What is the team composition?
Mad Devs lets us choose our resources. Initially, we chose one person from Mad Devs to work on one of our open-source projects. Afterward, they assigned 6–7 developers to another project that involved an audit security analysis engine and API.
How did you come to work with Mad Devs?
Since some of their members were already contributing to our open-source projects, we decided to reach out more formally based on the skill set they demonstrated on Ethereum. Their pricing was extremely reasonable, and they filled a gap we had.
How much have you invested with them?
So far, we’ve spent over $200,000 on their services. They charge an hourly rate and send quarterly statements of work.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with Mad Devs 12–15 months ago, and we’ve been collaborating ever since.
