Introduce your business and what you do there.
I am a partner and a founder at a fintech company. We’re doing our best to create a website that will bring financial planning and advice to a broad audience.
Opportunity / Challenge
What challenges were you trying to address with Praxent?
We were trying to bootstrap the website development. We were working with a development team and wanted to find someone else to help us get a few things done in parallel with that team. I brought in Praxent in a staff augmentation capacity for development.
What was the scope of their involvement?
Praxent was our full-time staff augmentation partner for four months. If we had a void within our existing development team, Cristian (Senior Frontend Developer) would come in to help us.
What is the team composition?
We only worked with Cristian, and I had a little interaction with Kevin (Managing Partner).
How did you come to work with Praxent?
We considered three different companies. Initially, we were looking to do some UI/UX work with Praxent, and though that didn’t come to fruition, we got to know them through that process. When we needed staff augmentation, we decided to lean on Praxent because we were more familiar with them than the other firms we’d talked to.
How much have you invested in them?
We spent about $50,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We worked together from around August 2021–to January 2022.
Results & Feedback
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
I can only speak about Cristian’s work, and although he wasn’t reporting to me, the person responsible thought he did a very good job. Cristian was very insightful and honest with his timeframe and abilities. My interactions with him were very cordial, and I learned something from his time working with us. Additionally, Kevin seemed like a very nice person, and he was a straight shooter.
How did Praxent perform from a project management standpoint?
Cristian hit every mark when it came to project management. He was personable and easy to work with.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Praxent did a very good job at finding offshore talent. Cristian was a very straight shooter, which was important; what he said he could do, he delivered on. The best thing about him was that he was very good at managing expectations; most people in the technology industry are terrible at that.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No, there wasn’t anything they needed to improve.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
I would recommend them; Praxent delivered, and Cristian did a great job. If I needed help with development work in the future, I would reach out to Praxent and request Cristian.
