Case Study: AngularJS Development Team for Studytube

Stepan Suvorov
VP of Engineering
The team we built with Daxx is made up of reliable JavaScript developers who produce high-quality code. The remote model is definitely working out well for us.

When I joined Studytube as a senior JavaScript developer, my mission was to build an AngularJS team to further develop our platform. Since JavaScript is a relatively young technology, finding experienced JavaScript engineers was hard, and finding AngularJS developers was even harder.

I decided to build our JavaScript development team in Ukraine with Daxx because I’d worked there before and knew how everything worked from the inside.

Daxx takes care of everything related to maintaining our team’s office, including setting up workstations and taking care of payroll and taxes. Our HR/Client Manager at Daxx gives us a lot of support every time we need to find new developers for our team.

Overall, the company has been very responsive to our needs, and our Ukrainian team is simply great.

Tools: Jira, Confluence, Slack, Google Hangouts, WorkFlowy.

Tips:
- if you’re working with a relatively new or rare technology, and people with relevant experience are hard to find, hire good developers who’ve worked in a similar field regardless of their skill sets, and give them a few months to learn the tech you need
- hire remote developers only if they’re genuinely interested in your project and don’t need anyone to pressure them into working
- arrange business trips to your company’s headquarters for your offshore team to map out long-term goals side-by-side. This will also give your internal and external teams the chance to bond
- use the plank pose during daily stand-ups to help your team members stick to the point
