Creating a web application and implementing new features is similar to a surgical operation, where each member of the medical team plays an important role. Imagine if a surgeon had to perform all the steps of the process alone, without an anesthesiologist and assistants. Would they be able to do everything quickly, with high quality, and without consequences?

Absolutely, the development of websites, applications, and other web products requires more than just one or two programmers. It involves assembling a whole team of professionals, including:

  • Project Manager,
  • Business Analyst,
  • Designers,
  • Testers,
  • System Administrators,
  • DevOps Engineers,
  • Security Specialists,
  • Data Scientists and others.

That's absolutely correct. The composition of a project team can vary significantly depending on the nature, scale, complexity, and technologies used in development. For a small landing page with a promotional offer, you wouldn't need to hire ten IT specialists. The size and expertise of the team should be tailored to the specific requirements and goals of the project. Smaller projects may require a more streamlined team, while larger and more complex projects may involve a more extensive group of professionals. It's all about finding the right balance to meet the project's needs efficiently and cost-effectively.

Even the most experienced programmer may find it challenging to handle all tasks within a short timeframe. If you genuinely want to deliver a high-quality IT product quickly, assembling at least a core team of employees is necessary. Each team member contributes their expertise to different aspects of the project, ensuring that it meets the required standards and functions smoothly. It's about harnessing collective skills and resources to achieve the best results.


Project manager

  • Plans and organizes the project's progress in accordance with established deadlines and budget.
  • Allocates tasks among team members and monitors deadline compliance.
  • Ensures quality control and coordinates work among team members.
  • Manages risks and resolves issues that arise during development sprints.
  • Maintains communication with the client, providing information on project progress.

Business analyst

  • Analyzes and studies client preferences and user experiences to fully understand the project's scope.
  • Develops functional and technical specifications describing product requirements and functionality.
  • Communicates with company representatives and other stakeholders to clarify details and refine tasks.
  • Assists the project team in understanding the client's business goals and expectations to ensure that the functionality aligns with their needs.

Designer

  • Creates the external appearance of the product, including its user interface (UI) and user experience (UX).
  • Develops layouts, prototypes, and elements that allow the team and the client to visualize the product's concept.
  • Ensures that the design is intuitive, appealing, and aligns with the company's brand.
  • Collaborates with programmers and business analysts to ensure that their work aligns with the project's technical capabilities and requirements.

Programmer

  • Based on the specifications and requirements provided by the business analyst or client, the programmer writes code to implement the product's functionality.
  • Engages in programming using selected languages, employing relevant frameworks and development tools.
  • Depending on the project type, works on the frontend (user interface) and/or backend (logic and database).
  • Adheres to coding standards and ensures the cleanliness and readability of their code.
  • Performs debugging and testing of the software code to identify and rectify potential errors.

Tester

  • Is responsible for testing the product at various stages of development.
  • Creates test scenarios and cases based on functional and technical specifications.
  • Evaluates the functionality of the program, identifies errors, defects, and issues.
  • Reports identified problems to the development team and assists in resolving them.
  • Engages in test automation to enhance the efficiency and repeatability of tests.     

The absence of services from key specialists can lead to disruptions during product implementation, delays in timelines, and increased risks. All of these result in additional costs for fixing errors and problems that could have been avoided with the proper formation of the team.

We inform our clients in advance about the preferred team structure for each project and discuss possible scenarios in case a necessary team member is unavailable for development. However, the final decision always depends on personal goals and remains with you.

Web application development

We will work out the concept, create an adaptive interface, expand the functionality of digital products and test for errors. We will find approaches even to non-standard tasks. You will receive a web application based on a modern technology stack with relevant solutions for your business.
