The client’s team was initially distributed and located in San Jose, CA and India, and they were already efficient at running fully remote software development. We discussed the details with Nalin, and it turned out that they were redesigning their current Rails app architecture and had a wide variety of apps that needed to be developed for both web and mobile platforms.
The challenge they had was splitting the monolithic Rails application into separate backend and frontend projects, using an API gateway in a microservices architecture, and then using the same API for mobile clients. They needed our help with the frontend of their application, and came prepared with technical requirements and wireframe design, explaining how they envisioned each screen of the application. We were an excellent fit for the project, since we have quite a bit of experience with similar Rails-based solutions and splitting monolithic Rails applications.
