Dedicated development team

as a service

Ecommerce platforms, applications and frameworks keep evolving. You can’t stop the race. But you can decide what’s under your bonnet. Do you settle for a mediocre engine? Or will you make sure you can switch to any gear?

Finding the right ecommerce developers is hard. But even when you succeed, you still have to build a development team. And that’s when things can get complicated and tricky. Because we all know that gathering a group of individuals is no guarantee for a well-functioning team.

Save yourself the trouble. Instead, get things done by a development team that is already in tune with each other. A team of people who know each other even better than Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.

The team only has one goal: helping you out with technical ecommerce challenges you’re facing. Such as:

  • creating a B2B or B2C ecommerce solution that matches your audiences expectations
  • connect and integrate applications properly
  • building product configurators
  • centralising ecommerce data

In other words, keeping the engine running.

Team as a service: flexible and effective

Having your own team:

  • Backend, frontend and Quality Assurance (QA)
  • Project and team management (even if there are multiple parties involved)
  • Deliver a dedicated Product Owner and/or certified Scrum Master
  • Always working on a time and material basis

Working with a development team:

  • Development stack always adapted to your business needs
  • No loose individuals, the team is perfectly attuned to each other
  • Team capacity is flexible: scaling up if needed
  • Collaboration with marketing, design, content and other teams you work with

Tailored technology stack for your business needs

Your ecommerce already has a technical basis: a platform and many systems and applications that fit together. Or should. From that basis, we put together a team. Mixing backend, frontend and optional Quality Assurance (QA) for testing. For ecommerce technologies, applications and frameworks such as:

  • Difficult to work with developers from another country? Not at all. The communication skills are great. And the level of knowledge in Serbia is just as good as in Western European countries.

  • We don’t just get some development resources from Factor Blue. No, for us it really feels like we’re getting an extra team member.

  • I am extremely spoiled by the knowledge and attention I receive from Factor Blue. Next to excellent development skills they have a great business sense. I realise that this is not a matter of course in the world of development.

Time and material basis

Using our team as a service is based on a time and material basis, starting from 2 FTE and a 3-month period. The more time and materials you need, the more favorable the rates become. We jointly decide what the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) should be. Including rough estimated project costs and a timeline to get there. Or you can just connect our remote team to an existing in-house team.

 

Working agile to stay in charge

Ecommerce projects are too complex to be done linearly. That is why we divide the estimated timeline into short sprints. Each sprint, we decide together which tasks should be done first to build the MVP. This way, you and the team stay in charge when circumstances change and insights evolve. Our Scrum Masters can lead the process.

Dedicated development team

The Netherlands and Serbia: working together remote

We work from The Netherlands and Serbia. Same continent, knowledge level and dedication. Is it nearshoring? Well, you could call it that. We see it as working together on a remote basis. Being always in the same office space to collaborate and be part of a group is so 2000.
Meet the team

  • With testing, code and visual reviews, we monitor the quality of our projects and improve every day.
  • We facilitate everything for a productive team. Equipment, tools, courses and certification.
  • Our employees can connect to internal, external communication channels and to (daily) meetings.
  • We would like to invite you to come to visit offices and get acquainted. Seeing is believing.

This is our roadmap to an development team:

Defining goals

What are your objectives? What should we aim for to get there? Together we define your Minimum Viable Product (MVP).

Estimating time and material

Based on your goals and our experience, we give you an accurate estimate of time and material needed.

Building the team

Every character counts, in the code we write and the team we form. We make sure we have all the expertise necessary for what’s under the bonnet.

Refining the project

Setting expectations is perhaps the most important part. Together we decide various aspects of the project such as project management, communication channels and collaboration tools.

Kickoff meeting

A kickoff meeting is more than just the start of a new project. It’s a celebratory moment with everyone who’s involved. Let’s get the project started!

Sprint planning

Working in short sprints makes the project manageable. Giving everyone enough space to maneuver and responsibly deliver what was agreed upon. Thanks to the help of the Scrum framework.

Reviewing and adjusting

Ecommerce development is a process. We collaborate and reflect regularly, ensuring everyone involved stays satisfied and productive. Striving for the perfect lap.
