A productive, highly-skilled django team that understands how to work with a bootstrapping startup

The Problem

TrackPack was a bootstrapping startup on a budget, and had been outsourcing through Upwork for years with mixed results. They knew that there was technical debt and refactoring to deal with, but needed expert advise about how to best spend their development budget to bring their product to market. With their SaaS product already in beta, they needed a stable, professional django/python team to mature the application into a full-release and begin building new features.

Why They Contacted SourceSeek

SourceSeek started by helping TrackPack to arrange a code review, so that they could get a clear view into the applications current state. We introduced one of our trusted development partners that had real experience and success working with bootstrapped startups. The remote team assessed the code and recommended a plan that balanced refactoring needs with the need to get to market quickly. The new partner was able to quickly patch any critical security issues in the code, get Trackpack to a release-ready state, then begin simultaneously cleaning up the code and rolling out new features.

Achievements

  • A code review
  • No more headaches and frustration with hiring on Upwork
  • A vendor that truly understands the needs of bootstrapped startups
  • Cost savings of 70% compared to domestic software engineers
  • Engineers assigned and producing code in 2 weeks
  • Top quality code

Stack

Django, python

Very good team, great communication, organized, and top notch programmers. After 8 years of outsourcing projects, I finally found the team that I've been searching for.
