Expanding An In-House Team For Additional Development Capacity

The Problem

Clickatell is a leading provider of enterprise messaging and transaction services. The internal team was under tremendous pressure and needed to expand quickly – a real challenge in Silicon Valley.

Why They Contacted SourceSeek

Clickatell needed more developers – as well as effective product owners to manage a team of professionals as they transitioned into a self-managed outfit.

Making The Match

We reviewed how Clickatell’s in-house development team worked to better understand which project and product managers would be the best fit for them.

With this knowledge, we quickly matched them with a small, trusted development company that could provide both personal attention and flexibility – a high-performing, autonomous team of developers, QAs, and DevOps professionals.
