People who don’t have experience in creating full scale digital services typically underestimate the amount of effort and different expertise required. The size of investment can be a shock for the uninformed. Even if the budget is not an issue, this expertise is extremely hard to find from the job market thanks to the booming digitalisation in practically every industry.
A digital product development team typically consists of people from 5 different roles: designers, coders, DevOps engineer, test engineers, project manager and/or product owner. For example the coding part alone can require 3 types of specialists: web front-end developers, mobile developers and back-end developers. And when the system is up and running the Marketing, Operations and Care team work day and night to ensure things roll smoothly.
Let’s collectively call them Creators.
Due to the breadth of roles and the varying needs for different roles over the product development timeline, many Visionaries turn to tech agencies like Codemate. Hiring the team as a service enables them to start faster, adjust the team composition, avoid fixed costs and lean to the experience of the software development agency when embarking into the unknown future.
In a rare and fortunate event that the Visionary is able to assemble a team and the funds, new challenges await the brave.
