Packhelp is a Poland-based startup that creates custom packaging for B2B companies — mostly e-commerce and stationery brands. Customers can design their packages online or customize a default pattern and then order them in wholesale or retail quantities. Packhelp operates in over 20 European countries, the United States, Canada, and Australia.
As a rapidly growing business (1st place in the “Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Central Europe” ranking for 2020!) Packhelp is expanding into new markets and constantly improves their platform. This creates a steady need of bringing new, exceptional software development talent who can help in scaling their product. Packhelp’s top priority is finding competent developers that would meet their specific requirements.
Initially, Packhelp came to us in 2018 with a well-defined, technical problem: they had an inefficient existing system based on Ruby on Rails and needed a sustainable module. The timing was crucial, as the team was struggling to meet the deadline set by the investors.
We agreed that we could help Packhelp temporarily, by creating a new module of their system.
But that was just the beginning - the main issue they were facing back then (and still are facing now) is the need to quickly scaling their development teams, by bringing the right set of tech talent.
We started our collaboration in 2018 by organizing a workshop with Packhelp to identify their business requirements for the new module. With these details, we determined the required size and specific skill sets for each developer team, and the ideal project methodology.
Here are some of the solutions we created:
After delivering the first project, we have gained Packhelp’s trust and the long-term collaboration became possible! Since then, we have built a fast and cost-effective recruitment process for Packhelp that guarantees quality hiring, including:
The best feature I've introduced for Packhelp was the improvement of specific types of packaging handling, including pricing and presentation mechanism.
Senior Ruby on Rails Developer
In the course of recent years, we successfully delivered multiple developers to contribute to Packhelp’s growth.
With the support of our tailor-made body leasing services, they built an A-class dev team that manages a sustainable platform that can handle their growing clients' demands. We have secured Packhelp’s need for team scaling, being able to fast-track developers fitted for their needs, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, when the demand for packaging skyrocketed.
Here is a summary of our collaboration so far:
We are proud of this collaboration and we are ready to support Packhelp in other years of growth to come!
