Frequently asked questions

MVP is a great way to get your product up and running quickly because it only includes the core functionality and killer features. If you need to start receiving market feedback asap to adjust the product to actual market needs, then MVP is go-to solution for your start-up. It will allow you to minimize the cost of change to be able to adapt your product to the market feedback with less effort.

Based on your idea and vision, our product management specialists will help you shape the MVP in such a way as to include the major features and form the correct feedback loop. Our technical experts and architects will design a solution architecture that will give you the possibility to easily scale in the future. It also will allow you to minimize the cost of change to be able to adapt your product to the market feedback with less effort.

In our experience, it takes about 2-4 months on average to launch a startup product, but the actual time frame can be quite different, both up and down. It all depends on the complexity and scale of the product. That’s why it is important to run a discovery phase (forming a product vision, creating the roadmap & backlog, selecting the technology stack, and drafting solution architecture) to get the full understanding of the solution-to-be. Based on this understanding your supplier will be able to estimate the efforts and plan the timeline. The development timeline depends on the product scope a lot, so it is important to find the right balance between quality expectations, functional requirements, and target time-to-market.

There is a number of different packages available for a startup project, it all depends on your business needs. Sigma Software offers top-tier SLA-based support for different workloads, processes setup & full-cycle support. We provide adaptive, corrective, perfective, and preventive maintenance as well as systems upgrades, migration, enhancement, etc. to make sure your IT ecosystem runs smoothly. In addition to providing managed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd line support and ongoing maintenance, we also help our clients extend their existing IT support teams on a long-term basis or as peak resources.

Here are some steps we recommend you follow if you need to hire developers for your startup project:

Step 1 – List your business requirements as well as determine the type of experts you need to successfully kick off the project.

Step 2 – Decide whether to outsource or develop your product in-house.

Step 3 – Find the right people. You can hire an outsourcing company or search on your own using marketplaces like Upwork, Freelancer, and Guru. Outsourcing agencies usually have a wide range of specializations, a broad technology stack, and enough recruiting specialists to interview, evaluate, and select the right candidates even when it goes to some niche expertise or rare technologies.

Step 4 – Check technical expertise, reputation, and track record. Whether you’re hiring freelancers or an IT development agency, you need to make sure they have the experience they claim to manage your project.

Step 5: Conduct an interview to talk about the candidate’s work experience on previous projects.
