Background

At the end of 2022, our website signaled that an online meeting had been scheduled by someone.

Who was on the other end? None other than the HR manager of a leading UK marketing agency specializing in crafting software for real estate agents.

Driven by a vision to expand their internal development team with top-tier remote front-end experts, they turned to us for our proven expertise. After engaging in a lively discussion about their needs, we arrived at a mutual agreement and virtually sealed the deal with a handshake.

Challenge & Solution

Marketing for Estate Agents

In the midst of rapidly evolving web technologies, our client needed a tech partner with expertise in not only building bespoke websites and components, but also in maintaining thier current apps. They had legacy sites built using ES5, jQuery, and Backbone that required careful management. Furthermore, they faced a continuous challenge of identifying and squashing bugs to ensure optimal site performance and user experience. The team culture was collaborative, with a focus on team-building during stand-ups, retros, and code clubs, and they sought a partner who could actively participate and contribute in these areas.

The web developers sourced from Echo were not only an ideal match in terms of technical expertise, but they also effortlessly adapted to the client’s team culture and seamlessly integrated themselves into the organization.

Value Delivered by Echo

  • Gathering a team of skilled front-end & back-end developers within a short time frame.
  • A few large JS components have been built and tested.
  • Optimization of app functionality, reliability, and security.
  • A thousand UX/UI bugs have been squashed.
  • Ongoing support and maintenance.

How much does it cost to build similar software and dev team?

The approximate budget you need is 20K USD/month.
