Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a quote?

Each project has a dedicated Product Owner. You’ll always have direct access to them, and a big part of their job is to make sure our relationship with you is just as you’d like it.
They are responsible for understanding everything about the requirements and your needs, as well as keeping you informed and discussing things as we progress.

If you’re doing multiple projects with us (either in sequence or in parallel) in most cases it will be the same Product Manager, because why wouldn’t it be!

Do I need a finished design to get a quote?

No, we can provide you with a pre-sales support, at the stage when no designs are ready yet. It is important to note though, that design can change a lot in terms of amount of work required to implement a website. So typically, at this phase we will be able to provide just a ballpark number, or range, which will need to be confirmed once all the project details are fixed.

Which design file formats do you accept?

Our team can work virtually with any type of source files, including PSD, Sketch, as well as modern platforms like Adobe-XD, Figma, Invision, Zeplin. We prefer dedicated platforms, as they provide additional tools to export assets, or comment on individual UX elements, which can speed up our work and ensure better communication between the development and design teams. You will also find a set of nice tips in our article about web development.

How does the communication work?

Each project has a dedicated Product Owner and a Lead Developer. You’ll always have direct access to them, as a big part of their job is to make sure our relationship with you is just as you’d like it.

They are responsible for understanding everything about the requirements and your needs, as well as keeping you informed and discussing things as we progress.

What communication tools do you use?

Our team is familiar with many different project management and communication tools, and we tend to adopt to needs of our customers. The most common set of tools include Slack for instant communication and Trello for task management.

What is your core tech stack?

his is a broad topic and we typically discuss it in details with our partner at the beginning of our cooperation.
List of tools and technologies we use include:
– Custom JS: Angular, Node.JS, NestJS, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, MySQL, Docker, Git
– WordPress: WordPress, PHP, WooCommrece, MySQL, Docker, Git
– Custom PHP: Yii2, Symfony, Laravel, MySQl, PostgreeSQL, Docker, Git

What is the hourly rate?

Our typical rate starts at £38/hr. That’s a single, blended rate for each of our team roles. We do charge for our time in estimating your project, but you only pay that if the project goes ahead. So, we take the risk on that then.

Are the projects fixed-price, or do you charge time & material?

Most of our projects are fixed-price. Naturally, we can only do that when we have a full, detailed brief and final designs. Sometimes this just isn’t possible, or a client prefers to work in a highly agile, iterative manner. So, we can do time & material if you prefer.

We also sometimes charge time& material, where you simply need a bit of technical consulting, perhaps to create some ballpark pricing, think through technical options, or to help nail a brief in detail. Similarily, small tasks typical for ongoing maintenance can be more easily managed in T&M model, as estimating and confirming a task for 30 minutes of work can take more than accomplishing the task itself.

Do I have to commit to a certain minimum amount of work each month?

Not at all! You hire us only when you have work for us, and it doesn’t matter how small the project or task is either.

How do you test websites?

Ensuring high quality of each project is very important to us. For a more complete description of our testing routines please read the article on our blog about testing before deployment.

How do you handle WordPress best practices?

We constantly strive to train our team to use best development practices. Over the years we have developed a set of best practices in WordPress development workflow . Our team handles regular retro and training meetings, as well as code review to ensure the knowledge exchange between individual developers.

Do you prefer to make custom-built WordPress or use premium themes?

If you ask this question to any senior-level developer, you will hear only one answer – custom built template allows for better site optimization, faster page loading and higher security. This does not mean we refuse to work with premium templates. We understand that in case of budget projects using a premium template can be the only way to go.

Do you offer web design services?

No, we focus only on the technical side of web development. Having said that, we’ll be happy to recommend one of our UI/UX partners if you have needs in this field.

What is White Label Development?

Providing white label services means developing a ready-made, licensed software by one company and rebranding it by another company, to make it appear as their own. The concept seems quite clear. You can learn more about what the white label agency can really do for its business partners in our article titled “What is a white label agency”

What are your working hours?

We normally work Monday to Friday, starting from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm CET.

We typically are able to start a new project up to two weeks from the initial notice.
