The Client reached out to Merixstudio with a need for an experienced agile software team that could serve as a supportive team extension and take ownership of the frontend development to increase the velocity of their internal team. The key challenge for Merixstudio was to smoothly and quickly align themselves with the existing team and codebase and meet a strict deadline for the MVP release.

The whole collaboration was based on a partnership between two teams: the experienced front-end development team seated in Poznan, Poland and the back-end seated in Vienna, along with the core management team. Merixstudio’s team was in charge of the whole front-end development of the application covering the implementation of the key features (such as managing shift boards, creating and calculating shifts, displaying resources overviews) as well as of providing consultative tech advice and UX improvements. This was fully remote cooperation put in the framework of a Scrum-driven development.
