Unlike enterprises, technology startups do not always have the resources to maintain an in-house software development team to bring their vision to life immediately. Using a trusted IT partner, your tech startup can acquire talent to match its budget, keep software development going while you recruit your own team, or to get an affordable outside perspective. We can help you find anyone from software developer to senior executive to help your cause.
The majority of our engineers hold top places in a variety of competitive programming championships and olympiads. Solving tough technological challenges is in their DNA. They strive to create extraordinary products using creative ideas. Smart IT engineers employ a vast arsenal of tools and technologies to empower startup visionaries to realize their ideas and ambitions.
Certainly, we cover a wider range of services if need be. We have tried to list the most in-demand ones, but that in no way prevents us from making a custom proposal. Provided you can give a detailed set of requirements and describe your project in full, we will craft a bespoke offer. Whatever the case, don’t hesitate to schedule a quick call to fill us in on your vision.
You are free to pick and choose pretty much as you like. We are happy to help you build an efficient dedicated team for full-time software engineering or outstaff developers to extend your existing team. In the latter case, our employees will become an organic extension of your team and work as its remote arm. Though we would ask that you let us know which option you are going with.
We encourage you to maintain regular contact with your team and to meet face to face, however with this pandemic lock-down it's 100% remote. Essentially, your team will adopt the communication and productivity tools that you are familiar with, or will use the tools that work best. You can be the main point of contact on your behalf or rely on a representative. Your development team’s lead engineer will communicate with you or your representative on a regular basis.
The EaaS or fractional executive is an option that lets companies ‘borrow’ a C-level hire from Smart IT. That is normally our CTO, or even CEO, if he has the time. With a senior hire come the benefits of efficient processes, aggregated expertise, and hand-on knowledge of running a business and developing software. This is a perfect opportunity to temporarily leverage the skills and knowledge that might otherwise be missing, for now. It is also a way to manage stakeholders and get work done, for the fraction of the cost of a full-time senior hire. Ping us via the form on the right to learn more about the service.
We put them together in a gladiatorial arena match, where the best bone code cruncher wins. Just kidding. On a more serious note, all developers have to pass a series of written tasks, meticulously compiled by our CTO before being admitted to interview. Once there our CTO runs a one-on-one skill check. Last but not least, our candidate sits for another interview directly with the CEO himself. Did we mention we also welcome hires with a background in competitive programming? This way, we make sure our clients get the great of the crop.
By and large, your existing software will dictate the tech stack, unless you are starting from square one. In that case, our team will consult you on the best technology stack. Consider what your business objectives are and define what you would like your software to achieve. Based on that spec, we will provide software development recommendations that align with your vision and business needs. If you would like to discuss custom technology stack options or require software engineers with the know-how of specific programming languages, ping us through the contact form on the right.
If Batman went around telling everyone he was Bruce Wayne, his unmasked alter ego would hardly be able to keep his business empire running smoothly, wouldn’t he? While our clients are not Batman, though we do like to think of them as awesome, they do value their anonymity. We do not have a problem with being Alfred in that relationship and safeguarding their true identity. If the time is right to hang up the cape and step into the public light, we would be more than happy to showcase your brand emblem in our Hall of Fame.
If it can be prototyped, it most likely can be pretotyped, and we can help with both. Be sure to give us a full brief of your objectives and requirements — a vision shared is halfway there. We will then compile a spec sheet and suggest the best way to test out your idea, maybe even without a single line of code. If you are looking to dip your toe in the water, Smart IT can help build a minimum viable independent product. You can learn more about the service on its dedicated page.
