Zwapgrid began by hiring two experienced developers, Anton and Kate. Although Zwapgrid’s work is rather challenging from a technical standpoint, the new hires understood the specifics and were able to quickly unite with the Swedish team.
After hiring four additional team members, good communication became a challenge. Zwapgrid’s CTO was spending an excessive amount of time helping new team members tackle technical and organizational problems, which was slowing down his own working process. With that in mind, Zwapgrid decided to promote Anton and Kate to tech lead and team lead positions. Currently, the two oversee routine issues and technical questions, allowing the Swedish team to focus on strategic solutions specific to their area.
The speed of delivery was still less than desired, which prompted the introduction of another solution. The team reviewed their working process and realized that the two units — the Swedish product team and the Ukrainian development team — were spending more time than needed to synchronize and wait for each other’s response. Zwapgrid decided to optimize the team structure by forming smaller units consisting of one product lead and three dedicated developers. The proposed solution strengthened communication and resulted in high-speed delivery.
Zwapgrid does not have fixed projects with start and end dates, which makes it difficult to estimate exact results and efficiency. However, they are confident in sharing how the Ukrainian team has helped with the continuous improvement of their platform. They are also seeing a large number of integrations quickly delivered in an improved and smooth manner.
The team now consists of eight developers, as two more are about to be hired. At the start of the cooperation, Zwapgrid desired Beetroot to provide them with solid HR service, ongoing maintenance, and skilled developers. We feel these desires have successfully been accomplished.
