Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?
The app launched to our members successfully in Feb 2020, however that is around the time that the Caronavirus started to spread and all the companies clubhouse had to be closed down. Unfortunately, this has negatively impacted the usage, engagement, and adoption of the app and there are very few metrics to report as of now.
How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?
Based on the 10-hour tie difference, the workflow worked great. I attempted to anticipate any potential questions/issues and answer them in my documentation to ensure development kept progressing smoothly and if the team was blocked, they would work on other parts of the project until we were able to respond.
What did you find most impressive about this company?
This was my first time working with developers in different countries in a distributed team. The experience was great and we felt very lucky and grateful to have found them. Their collaboration, communication, accountability, and the quality of the end product was great.
Are there any areas for improvement?
While nothing is ever perfect, I feel the main challenges arise from our distributed location and time difference.
