Success Case

In 2012 we had the opportunity to build and manage an extended team in Vitória, Brazil for a Silicon Valley’s payment startup. Since then, we’ve helped the company to grow bringing in highly skilled engineers to support major clients like PayPal, UNICEF, United Way and major social media, remittance and utility companies. The events below describes major achievements in our relationship:

Early 2012, the development of the MVP started with 3 engineers working in a small office in Vitória.
Late 2012, the product went live.
In 2013 and 2014, contracts with major clients were signed and the team grew in both locations. All engineers were hired in the Vitória office and the marketing and product teams in Silicon Valley’s office.

Late 2015, we had 25 fully committed and highly skilled engineers working in a 2000 ft² office.

Late 2016, the Vitória team was incorporated into a legal subsidiary of the company.
