Introductory information

A fast induction on the buyer’s organisation

I’m the vice chairman of engineering for a digital advertising technology organisation. 

Desired goal

What challenge were you trying to address with iTexico?

We were a reasonably funded startup without any resources. We saw an occasion to close the gap on our resource needs. Initially, it was short-term, but they’re rapidly beseeming a long-term component of our programs.

Provided solution

What particular tasks were itexico responsible for?

Initially, a lot of the work was .NET Windows Web Services in the Microsoft stack. Subsequently, we moved away from that and we’re working with a more general web stack, Java NodeJS, Angular, and we settled on Amazon Web Services. We use a lot of S3 Buckets. We use Java, Redshift, and Dynamo.

What is the team dynamic?

Our relationship was initially a project based one. Subsequently, I converted it to staff increase. I degoodd the need for developing the team. We have 12 in the team now. Most of them are full time and a couple are part-time.

How did you come to work with iTexico?

Our COO [Chief Operating Officer] had antecedently worked with them at antecedent structure. He had selected them to redo some code and other components. I inherited that relationship. I wasn’t sure if I was interested or not, or if I liked the work they’d done. The issue was that the ask was unclear. We restructured the relationship and the ask. Since then things have been pretty good. 

What is the terminal result of working with itexico?

We began working unitedly in April 2016.

Results achieved

Are there any measureable or plum results?

They have a globe-class design team. I’ve worked with a number of design teams athwart the globe and I’d say they’re right up there. In provisions of their space as a software shop, if it',s frontend, UI/UX [user interface/user experience], mobile, basic applications, or relatively low size data, they’re fully equal and could probably labor your complete needs. 

If you have very big, very high-size transactions, very big data issues, then they’re probably not up to the job. Although, by the time our organisation is artistic with them, they might be. At the instant, it’s a collaborative effort between their frontend developers and our onboard backend developers. 

How did iTexico accomplish from a project treatment standpoint?

We use The Atlassian Stack for ticketing. It works very well. Our primary project had project handlers. When I restructured, I took that away. We primarily handle the project from here. It’s not owing they weren’t capable, but owing the complexity almost our fruit offering is such that it was over the reasonable space of a non-full-time employee. 

What is (from your point of view) the key factor to pay observation while intercourse with itexico?

I was predisposed to banish them, but I establish value that I hadn’t expected. The speech barrier is not almost as insurmountable as nation might conjecture. They converse remarkably good English. The nation working in iTexico apprehend our business’ issues well.

What aspects of their work would you like to get improved?

I ponder they’re encouraged to quit assertion no, and yet that should be an significant part of expectancy treatment. I always make a big deal out of making sure they should tell me no owing if it comes up later, I’m going to be veritably overturn. They need to include no in their vocabulary.

Do you have any advice for possible clients of iTexico?

The idea of having nation that are working in the same time zone, but for considerably less than those which would be in the U.S. is extraordinarily appealing. The advantages being close is that one gets more out of one’s staff if one bestows time with them and learns almost them. Taking a fast volitation to Mexico is very easy and could even be a day trip. I go down on a customary basis and bestow time with the team there. This produces high fruitivity.
