I've relied on Railsware for core software engineering across two high-paced startups. The skill level of their engineers is very strong and they work well with an existing US team. I've worked with other consultancies in the past that worked on the separate projects than the rest of the team, which is fine. But if you want to solve a bigger problem or work on really more complicated things, you need one larger cohesive team. And that's one of the values I get from Railsware - they're actually embedded into my team.
Railsware also brought in a testing culture into the company. Before they joined, we had very low test coverage and when we did releases, the quality of these releases was mediocre at best. After Railsware, we now have a ton of automated tests and as a result, the quality of our releases has improved and thus the speed of them as well.
Railsware has extended Backops tech team with our front-end and back-end engineers to help build complicated parts of the project and thus achieve product and business goals. Our engineers are working with Backops team both on-site and remotely to ensure the best collaboration, as well as sharing our best engineering practices to help increase the code quality.
The project is still ongoing, details are yet under NDA.
