“We set the bar high, and EPAM Startups & SMBs delivered the talent we were looking for. We were able to get up and running really fast.”

initial business challenges

Finding high-quality talent can be a challenge for startups determined to deliver the best quality product and avoid wasting resources on processes that might not produce their expected results. The Inigo team looked for a partnership where talents could grow alongside them, attend to their company needs, and be backed with the resources to support a startup.

search for quality talent

The main challenge that Inigo faced was finding quality talent, not only competent developers but also communicators and team players, that will be engaged full-time to work and deliver desired results. With past experience working with us and the knowledge about EPAM Startups & SMBs, they reached out to start a collaborative journey.

speed of execution

As a startup taking first but essential steps, speed was one of the priorities and challenges that the Inigo team relied on EPAM Startups & SMBs to solve. The hiring process was flexible and swift, and Anywhere Business allowed for talent circulation when this was required.

clear-cut expectations

Initial discussions laid out clear expectations that the Inigo team had for the engineers joining their efforts to build their GraphQL platform. Inigo needed help in going to market, minimizing time to execute, and validating product hypotheses.

value of skills beyond engineering

In any team setting, but specifically in a small aspiring startup, tech skills alone are not enough for successful collaboration. EPAM Startups & SMBs matched the client with our in-house engineers who met their expectations of work ethics, professional characteristics, and proficiency in the Go development language.
