Looking for recommendations for an outsourced development resource to add bandwidth

Kate Hiscox

Hi FD family - we are considering bringing on an external resource to extend our bandwidth in the short term to meet a deadline. Our team consists of engineering, UX/UI and a CTO. The project is MEAN stack with Bootstrap on the front end. The project is extremely well managed with Jira etc. so the relationship should prove smooth.

If anyone can recommend companies that work with startups I would like to hear about them. Our project is in the 500.co Summer batch and involves big data, API etc. Also, please feel free to message me.
You have an idea. Now it’s time to turn it into a brilliant and beautiful product. In this course, you’ll learn specialized tactics to study your user, create testable wireframes, and transform them into fully functioning features and products.

Hi Kate,
I enjoy working with the MEAN stack. I have 18 years experience, bringing many initial SaaS products to market. 

I was responsible for design, development and seamless uptime of a codebase of 27,000 lines of custom JavaScript and 66,000 lines of JavaScript library dependencies. 

One of my modules took 300,000 transactions and $50M in a 27-hour nationwide event. This sort of performance under  peak load distinguished my client's module and platform. Similar events have brought competing companies systems down for extended periods. I managed PCI Level 3 Compliance over a platform that integrated with 18 Payment Card processors. 

I have a passion for removing friction from online transactions. I would like to learn more about Venzee. Let me know if you would like references.
Best regards,
Monte
