Create your team of Go developers remotely
At Bocasay, we have the capacity to put a team of Go developers at your disposal to realize your IT project (whether it’s a web application, software, etc.)
We will suggest appropriate profiles according to the nature of your project. The proposed team will work using the Scrum method and implement Continuous Integration on your product.
Once you accept and validate the profiles proposed to match your request, we start your project.
The constitution and size of the team we propose will be formulated based on the extensive experience we have amassed through collaborations with all of our clients.
We study and take into account:
• The context and complexity of your IT project
• The size of the desired team,
• The envisaged duration of the project,
• The technical requirements and demands of the product.
• The level of technical maturity of your company: depending on where you are from an in-house technical and structural perspective, we will adapt our technical skill proposals (Developers, Lead developers, Product Owner, Architect, Scrum Master etc.) in order to allow you and your company to keep on improving your own capacity, even after the project has been finalized.
If you want us to talk about your needs, contact us and find out what we can achieve together.
