Moneyfarm is one of the largest online investment and digital wealth management companies in Europe. They provide solutions and support to protect and increase your wealth through time which boils down to three key services, namely General investments, Stocks & Shares ISA, Pension. The company announced in May of 2018 that it raised £40 million in Series B funding - the largest funding round by a European digital wealth manager to date - from Allianz Asset Management.
The Client reached out to Merixstudio with a need for experienced React developers that could serve as a supportive team extension in order to increase the velocity of their internal team and enrich the skillset. The key challenge for Merixstudio was to smoothly and quickly align themselves with the existing team and codebase in order to quickly contribute to the key milestones, namely unifying the onboarding process and redesigning the existing dashboard.
Moneyfarm’s mission is to give their customers the best solutions and support to protect and grow their wealth through time. They believe that everyone should be able to protect, promote and pursue his/ her wealth, without having to worry about it. We were very happy to help them in spreading this mission and bringing value to the customers.
There have been over 9-months of close cooperation between Moneyfarm and Merixstudio’s React development team. We kicked off the project with a few day onboarding processes in their London headquarters where we had a chance to meet the team in person and learn the project’s specifics.
We followed agile management using “Quarterfall” model i.e. planning in 3-month blocks where OKRs were derived from work prioritised for the quarter. The team incorporated Scrum that served as a framework for delivery and employed its ceremonies that facilitated the development.
