Data rockets is an experienced team of product developers with remote work culture.
We know how to build successful and feature-rich web & mobile applications and do our best to share that experience with our clients. I believe we have a unique approach to building relations with our customers, which results in productive partnerships that last for years.
The idea behind starting data rockets is to build an intellectual hub where engineers come to learn product development skills on the one hand, and clients come to create products for their businesses and startups on the other hand.
Together with Dmitry Zhlobo (the CTO and co-founder at data rockets), we were working for leading outsourcing companies in the industry and got to acknowledge their internal processes with many concerns, such as
We couldn't find a place for ourselves, so we started data rockets. We were lucky to find 25 more like-minded individuals who joined our team, and now:
At data rockets, we use Holacracy to distribute roles between people, so my roles constantly evolve. In short, I have the pleasure to:
We use Agile Development Methods and set up public communication channels, task management boards, planning calls, and daily standups to make all the progress visible to everybody. In addition, we provide single-minded, dedicated teams that have been working together for years and can take on a project quickly to ensure on-time delivery.
Apart from actual coding, we bring our ideas to the table. Writing high-quality code is what we do by default, but there are many sound engineers out there. Therefore, we go the extra mile to stand out and differentiate ourselves from those engineers that just code. In addition, we contribute to our projects by sharing our culture, bringing our processes, and providing ideas on how to make things faster/better.
We don't disrupt the market. At data rockets, we try to be as transparent and simple as possible. We share our expertise and knowledge with startups and do our best to build useful products for them. I believe that our achievement is that we manage to create a fully remote team with vital processes that make our clients happy. Almost every client of ours has referred us to their friends. It is the most significant achievement for us.
Focus on the result, collaborative approach, transparent communication, and work as a single team.
Our team consists of people who are fond of complex architecture and like to resolve complex problems and create something beneficial. We never stop learning. Taking on different projects is the best way to use all this knowledge and learn more.
You can find blockchain projects, SaaS, and startups in our portfolio. Also, we have had experience in launching ICO and creating cryptocurrencies. At the moment, we are working on two IoT projects.
We are happy when clients come to us with non-trivial tasks and projects that include new-age technologies. We mostly work only with those kinds of projects :)
In practice, the minimum budget we can work with is $20k. The reason is that we don't build simple websites that can be done with CMS like WordPress; we take on projects that require custom solutions. So having a budget less than $20k is pretty challenging to kick off something like that, even an MVP.
I have to note here that we always build long-term relationships with our clients. The medium project duration with us is approximately 12 months. The price range in the past 2 years was $30k - $300k. Our clients have wanted to work with us for years; for some, we have become their exclusive software development partners.
We thought that we could build a small company with a remote team, transparent and stable processes, and great culture in a year, at the most. It was a mistake. It takes a lot of time to tune every process step by step. Everything takes time. And sometimes that’s really depressing.
But don’t get upset because of that. Be patient, take small steps, and remember that you cannot build the business of your dreams in just a little time. Delegate tasks that can be done by others. Don’t try to control everything, or you will end up with a bottleneck.
