Sphere Partners spins up fully capable development team in a week
A Fintech company had an urgent need for assistance on their development team that could get up to speed quickly in an active sprint. They were seeking a partner who could provide embedded experts to help them cross the finish line for a digital product they were building and asked for Sphere Partners’ expertise.
Sphere was approached by a high profile Fintech company that offers a suite of settlement, custody and network services to participants in the digital asset industry. Our client needed a team ready to hit the ground running to flush out and maintain their application stack consisting of several React based client side-web apps, several node.js backend apps, an API service, and several distinct databases, all deployed to AWS.
Additionally, they needed expertise to work across the entire stack of the application including feature scoping, UI development, API development, database management, deployments and production support. Our client expected our experts to be able to deliver on new features as well as the existing codebase. Lastly, they sought assistance with capacity testing their applications and performing scaling improvements where needed.
How It Was Solved
Working with the company, we gained a deep understanding of the architecture and the specific requirements to provide an augmented team that could do the heavy lifting in very short order.
Ideally, they were looking for team members with specific domain expertise in the trading space, as well as gain familiarity with an already large codebase quickly, and with an in-place technical stack (frameworks, languages and cloud provider).
