What was the scope of their involvement?
Soshace has worked with me every step of the way. At the start of our project, I created a rough outline that described our needs. Based on our requirements, our account representative found three people who were perfect for the position within a few days. She sat in the interviews for each candidate and touched base afterward to ask how I felt they had gone.
The first two candidates weren’t interested in working with our code because it is relatively old, but one developer was both willing and had the rare experience with that exact technology. He is a senior professional developer who works remotely for us full time. For his compensation, I pay Soshace directly.
The scope of his capabilities is extremely large. His expertise includes Java, Oracle, Apache, Apache Tomcat, and jQuery. Rather than being limited to a specific project, we can assign him any task that relates to coding.
The developer has integrated a new payment gateway into our site and has identified and fixed numerous bugs. By tweaking the code independently, he finds new ways to improve features like our search and item filters.
Right now, he’s designing a mega menu. When users hover their mouse over a category on our site like "men," a dropdown menu displays the different clothing and jewelry options we offer for men. Clicking through takes users to a pre-filtered page of products.
Even after Soshace connected us with the right resource, they continued to make sure everything goes smoothly. Our account representative has listened to all the needs I've had so far. She continues to contact me to check in.
What is the team composition?
Alina (Head of Sales and Business Development, Soshace) has worked with us from the beginning as our exclusive point of contact. Their staff augmentation services yielded one developer.
How did you come to work with Soshace?
I was referred to Soshace by a family friend. Since I'm not a developer, I didn't have a formal resume. Instead, I described the basics of what we needed for this project.
How much have you invested with them?
I've spent about $6,000 on their services. They offered an amazing two-week trial period for a small deposit of only $1,000. Had I been dissatisfied, I wouldn't have been liable for the entire cost, and Soshace would have found an alternative resource. This option would be especially useful for positions like graphic designers.
What is the status of this engagement?
We've been working with Soshace since February 2019.
