Recovering a sports social platform before the referee’s first whistle
Taking on the technological debt
The project was left with a technological debt even the Lannisters would be afraid of. Charlie, the CEO of Teamitup, needed a team that would catch up with it, provide feedback, and make the platform usable before the start of the new season.
And he knocked on the right door! We took an effort to understand the app’s situation and we came up with the most efficient solutions to its’ usability problems: loading, updates, notifications, and adaptation to the latest mobile devices.
Serving a role of an interim CTO to a non-technological CEO
Being non-technological, Charlie needed a partner that would support him not just as a contractor, but as a strategist and advisor in the coding field.
We provided him with various developer roles (both frontend and backend), fulfilling the project at various moments. One of them was at senior-level, who has served a remote CTO role and has been continually consulting the strategy and development.
Adapting to a 6 hours time deference
When Charlie came to us, he was mainly worried about our time zone difference. Who wouldn’t, anyway?
Especially considering the fact, that the estimated amount of development hours could’ve easily doubled-up or even tripled-up.
Luckily, thanks to a great effort from Mat (we love you, man), we managed to be fully accessible and flexible for the Teamitup’s team.
Teaming up with teamitup
Besides getting to know what lacrosse actually is (hopefully it will get more popular in Poland!), we managed to:
- recover the app from a huge technological debt
- deliver the app at a tight deadline, which was dependant on external circumstances
- provide immediate contact despite the time difference
- provide technological strategy guidance to the CEO
- create a leading lacrosse Twitter-like social platform, used by 1000 coaches and over 30 000 players
- prepare Teamitup for attracting investors
Thank you for your trust, Charlie!
