Pluto wanted to expand their presence on a global market and across smart TV devices. To do so, they had to reach a new level of software quality.
They were ready to extend an in-house software development capacity with an external team. But they had previous bad experience with offshore partners. We were confident that we can change their mind about how dedicated a dedicated team can really be.
Pluto requested up to ten senior team members with a particular skill set. Their request took place during December holiday season—not an easy time to hire, we have to say. We’ve come up with a compromise:
In a year, the team grew up to 23 engineers. Even though the client and our developers were in different time zones, we’ve built an Agile workflow that integrated our team with Pluto completely. We agreed on a schedule suitable for both the client and the dedicated team. And to make the most of our time, we keep things real and keep all communications as constructive as possible.
There are 3 Architects among hired experts, so the team can not only complete the necessary tasks but also take part in strategic planning. Their expertise allows to suggest the best technical solutions and see possible problems before they come.
During the 1st year this team accomplished a range of important tasks:
Thanks to new functionality Pluto TV was integrated to Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, Google Chromecast and Roku TV devices.
Specific ‘fragmentation of content’ pattern on the back-end part enabled region-specific targeting and statistic gathering.
Our recruiters reduced Pluto’s expenses related to taxes, recruiting, hiring, retention and HR management. And our legal team ensured the safety of client’s intellectual property: the rights were assigned directly to the customer and each team member signed the confidentiality agreement. We made everything in our power to secure our client’s assets.
Thanks to new functionality Pluto TV was integrated to Apple TV, Android TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV and Roku TV devices.
Pluto hired us with a couple of other teams from all over the world. Eventually we became their core development team—because of our transparent approach, mature recruitment methodology and, we’d like to believe, our bright communication.
Now Pluto is expanding into the European market and constantly gains new partners. These changes require more functionality, adaptation to new devices, smart architecture solutions, working with Big Data.
We are now the biggest delivery center for Pluto. Our team now consists of 53 experts. In 2020 we hired 14 people and are now working on closing 5 more positions. Our common future looks bright and busy 🙂
