Striped Giraffe urgently needed two experienced senior Java developers for a large retail chain project. We handled formalities in two weeks and supplied developers who seamlessly integrated into their ongoing mobile app project and company culture.
Striped Giraffe, a German digital agency, specializes in software projects for corporations.
With over 100 employees, they deliver software solutions to some of the largest European and global companies, including e-commerce, retail networks, and pharmaceutical companies.
Java Developers: The Backbone of Success
Striped Giraffe has partnered with one of Europe’s largest retail chains to deploy and maintain their mobile application across new markets.
An important aspect of this partnership is the quarterly contract renewal process, which presents only four opportunities each year to sign or extend contracts.
Their first challenge was finding two senior Java developers with extensive corporate experience and a minimum of 10 years in the field, matching the project’s high standards.
Secondly, as the app implementation project was already underway, they wanted to onboard them as quickly as possible into their team and the client’s operations.
On top of that, Striped Giraffe aimed to ensure that the new developers would remain in the project for as long as possible, considering the significant costs associated with developer turnover in terms of finances and company reputation, especially in projects worth hundreds of thousands of euros.
Streamlining the Process: From Paperwork to Deployment
In this scenario, our top priority was to handle formalities swiftly and smoothly integrate the programmers into the project.
We didn’t waste time on lengthy negotiations or contract details. Once the rates were agreed upon, we promptly made our developers available to the client.
Our approach was to seamlessly adapt to the processes and tools used daily by Striped Giraffe in their own company.
This challenge was made easier because our two programmers, with over a decade of experience working with companies like Decathlon, CCC, Deichmann, and Credit Agricole, could effortlessly blend into the new environment.
A Seamless onboarding leading to ongoing cooperation
All the candidates we proposed to the German agency made a striking impression right from the initial discussions. The client was ready to onboard them immediately for direct work with their customer.
Within less than two weeks, we finalized all formalities, including onboarding processes, tool agreements, and time-logging methods.
Our developers quickly adapted to the new project and the company’s organizational culture.
The best testament to their success is that we never had to intervene throughout the year-long maintenance project, and the client regularly invited our programmers to company integration events.
- Delivered 2 senior developers with 10+ years of experience
- Formalities completed in 2 weeks
- 4 quarters of continuous collaboration (and counting)
“We really appreciated Stermedia’s approach to business; both their management and executives were responsive. Whenever a problem arose, they reacted quickly and effectively.
