Goals

Initially, the client has cooperated with other software development company but wasn't satisfied with the results. Given this fact, we faced challenges to improve code quality, solve problems with legacy code, and pay the technical debt as soon as possible to maintain the constant product growth.

After consultancy with the client’s Tech Lead, we have started the project with 2 Full Stack developers, and 1 backend engineer who has taken up the responsibility. In the near perspective, we also had to take over the further development of the web application.
