Our Approach

Launch fast, stay lean

We believe every startup should minimize time to market time.

Firstly, you don't want to waste lots time and money on something that might not get traction.

What is more important, the sooner you launch the sooner you will collect feedback from early adopters. This is huge! It changed directions of more projects than you can think.

Our main goal: success
of the start up

All we do is aligned with this main goal.

This is not just some marketing bullshit. Success of your project means more work for us in a future and something to brag about.

Build, release, repeat...

We advocate for small development iterations, because:

  • project will be launched faster, more money will be saved for marketing
  • direction can be changed easily,
    as next iteration can have any features
  • it is easy to start, as you need to
    plan only small chunk of work
  • it provides better results, as you
    don't plan entire project when you
    know the least about it

OUR TEAM

Business minded nerds

We love working with start ups. Having worked with many start ups we collected vast knowledge of what works and what doesn't. Starting from sign up flow to different monetization approaches.

Our primary expertise is web development though. And this is something we really good and enjoy.

Our development team participate in open source projects, go to conferences and deeply connected with web development community.

Different phase, different skills

As project develops it need a different mix of skills. For example, at the very beginning it needs more planning and less testing.

We provide the right balance of skills for each phase of the project, keeping things as lean as possible.

Great English Skills

English language is not the first language for most of our guys.

We bring English tutor a few times a week to our office to ramp up English skills of our team.

Our set up as of today

3 co-founders found the company
1 person brings new clients
2 persons manage projects
18 people develop web apps
3 people assure quality

WILL WE FIT?

Most of our clients are goal oriented, knowing what they need to archieve at different stages of the projects.
Majority of them live in US, Canada, UK or Australia, with a few exceptions of course.
They don't mind to talk us at mornings or evening time, if they live in US or Canada.
They are definitely organized well... You just have to be when work with remote team.
In the beginning work on the project in a spare time, having main job or business.
They have some idea how to market project once it is ready for that.

  • Great team, excellent job, 10-stars! The team is very responsive and attentive, real pros of their business. They had shown in-depth knowledge of web technologies.
    The company provides services that are hard to match. Always responsive with no delays rather than time difference. This was my second project with them and I would want no one else to work on my other projects.

    Dan Kogan

  • Working with Alex made my "let's build a functional, attractive website" idea a breeze. He always returned my emails and calls promptly, and easily answered all my questions about this process. Most importantly, the final product came out exactly as I had envisioned it. Having worked with other designers before, it was so refreshing to work with someone as professional, intelligent, and responsive as guys at A2 Design. I would recommend working with them without hesitation.
