The Review
Feedback summary: 

WyeWorks performs high-quality work on a consistent basis. They masterfully utilize database technologies to create working software. Executive-level engagement facilitates a communicative and productive experience. They’re a team of professional and imaginative individuals.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the former CTO of a healthcare technology company. We created a platform that focuses on quality of care metrics.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with WyeWorks?

I’ve collaborated with WyeWorks on separate occasions for two different companies. For both cases, I hired them as a way to extend my development team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

WyeWorks provided staff augmentation services. Their engineers integrated themselves with our existing development teams. Each project required them to create and ship software via agile processes. They primarily use Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, and other database technologies.

What is the team composition?

They’ve allocated as many as eight individuals at one time. Overall, I’ve worked with 12–16 different resources from WyeWorks.

How did you come to work with WyeWorks?

An internal staff member recommended them as a potential resource.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent roughly $50,000–200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

My most recent engagement with them took place from June 2014–April 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Unfortunately, I don’t have specific metrics available. However, they provided me with a reliable way to expand development teams. Acting as an extension each firm, they helped ensure we delivered working software. Their Ruby on Rails and refactoring expertise enabled them to improve a variety of codebases.

How did WyeWorks perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re terrific communicators, so the language barrier isn’t an issue. They’d join us for video conferences, daily stand-ups, and scheduled meetings.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They bring a good mix of agile methodology and flexibility to any project. It has been a pleasure working with their executive team. They’re compassionate and creative individuals, so I hope to work with them again in the future.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing comes to mind.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Reach out to them. They’re willing to find a great way to work with each client.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Quick staffing has scaled operations, resulting in added features and resources. WyeWorks’ strengths include clear communication and collaboration. However, their estimates could be more accurate. Nonetheless, the team’s work distinguishes them from other vendors.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and CEO of a web analytics company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with WyeWorks?

We had a few engineers internally, but needed to scale our engineering team without having to hire more resources in-house.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The partnership focused on Ruby on Rails development. We’ve since expanded the scope to projects that utilize AWS, Python, and other coding languages.

What is the team composition?

We’ve worked with a dozen resources internal.

How did you come to work with WyeWorks?

We got a referral from a mutual friend who had worked with WyeWorks in the past. He said that the team provided competent senior engineers, as opposed to junior engineers. That focus on senior talent met our needs.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in August 2014 and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

WyeWorks has helped us scale our team and ramp up other engineers. They’re now a core part of our engineering side because they maintain the product and grow it. Our product has gone from having one feature to having multiple features.

How did WyeWorks perform from a project management standpoint?

The handle the project well; we don’t have any language barriers. We use Slack, Confluence, and Jira.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They provide engineers relatively quickly when we need them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

WyeWorks could more accurately plan work and deliveries in accordance with engineers’ estimates. We need to figure out a process to get code and features delivered in a timely manner. However, this issue has been a challenge for other vendors as well as our team.

Feedback summary: 

WyeWorks exhibits excellent coding skills, but the hallmark of their service is an active project management style that mitigates concerns usually surrounding remote engagements. They tailor their team to fit project needs best, and they make an effort to build a trusting relationship.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder and former CPO of a social media marketing platform. I was in charge of product, engineering, and marketing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with WyeWorks?

We collaborated with WyeWorks to develop our social media marketing platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Using Ruby on Rails, WyeWorks developed our social media marketing application that allowed companies to monetize their engagements from a host of social platforms. Our product allowed merchants to push content to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google+ at the time. WyeWorks took the lead to develop those plugins.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a team of probably 10 engineers.

How did you come to work with WyeWorks?

It would have been costly to hire locally in Silicon Valley, so I decided to look elsewhere. WyeWorks offered competitive pricing for high-level engineering skills. Further, they seemed to have a healthy company culture, so there is minimal turnover on their staff. They make an effort to custom tailor the team to fit the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from 2010-2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We truly benefitted from them taking ownership of some of the critical components of the platform. They became an essential part of our engineering team as we launched our product.

How did WyeWorks perform from a project management standpoint?

Although it was a remote engagement, it was a seamless project. They are quite strong in their coding ability, but they stand out in how they managed the collaboration. We’d use Slack and Trello to communicate and track our tasks, and we’d have weekly standups to discuss our goals. They always set reasonable expectations and put in the extra time to address tasks that took longer than anticipated to meet deadlines. We worked so well together that I have selected them to help with another project at my current company.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s rare to meet the team when working remotely, but they make regular trips to Silicon Valley so that we can collaborate in person. That builds an extra bond of trust with their team, which speaks to their willingness to cater to the client.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I cannot determine anything that needs improvement.
