2020’s Top Developers share tips on how to achieve success during a pandemic

Paweł Dąbrowski

With the pandemic getting worse around the world, you might be worried that your technology partner will be understandably distracted. Many companies struggle in these difficult times - which often makes the deadlines for their digital projects all the more important. We want to reassure you. As a company awarded the Top Web Developers in Poland title this July, we can serve as an example that business as usual is not a far-fetched dream.

We’re honored to share the news that, in July 2020, we were ranked among the Top Web Developers in Poland by Clutch. Because we started out as a remote-first company, we were ready for the COVID-19 pandemic in many ways. And because we have so much remote work experience, we’re happy to share it with our clients, helping them adjust to the new situation.

We have a wealth of know-how related to remote team building. We use it both for internal hires, and to help clients find the right team members, even on short notice. We’ve been able to provide a Django expert in a week, when a client with a very tight deadline needed work to be done on their e-learning project.

We’re also experienced in remote collaboration. We’ve worked with companies in many industries, providing development services for fintech, e-commerce store development, as well as building e-learning platforms and HR solutions. We use time zone differences to our clients’ advantage, delivering results just as they begin their workday. We’ve collaborated with amazing people from the US, the UK, Barbados, France, Germany, and other countries.

Top 3 tips for successful remote cooperation

If you’re struggling to adjust to remote work, you’re not alone. Many businesses weren’t ready for this sudden change. But it’s a challenge that can be overcome. To help, we want to share these 3 tips on effective remote collaboration, applicable regardless of industry:

1. Technical expertise and craftsmanship - each developer working on your project should be vetted remotely, as part of an established recruitment process, before you sign a contract with them;

2. Transparency and a good communication setup - your technology partner should introduce effective communication tools that suit both sides, including solutions for daily communication (e.g. Slack), file sharing (e.g. Dropbox Papers), a code repository (e.g. Github), and so on;

3. Focus on business goals and successful delivery - look for a can-do attitude, experience and deep understanding of your market’s and users’ needs.

Now that we have these covered, there’s one extra tip we can give you - the key to success during COVID. You have to remain flexible and adapt to changes as they come. Many businesses are affected by COVID-19, but only some of them suffer from serious organizational problems - the ones stuck with a brick’n’mortar approach.

Consider the accommodation and food services sector. Restaurants and cafes feel the impact of COVID due to a lack of a delivery or pick-up option. Organizing a new strategy in the face of a crisis is difficult, but usually not impossible. You just need to find a great technology partner. Don’t try to tackle everything yourself! If you are a restaurant owner, you don’t have the knowledge and experience needed to employ a proper online store developer or to determine whether a freelancer can do the job. Instead, you should let a trusted, expert-level team handle this for you.

Business as usual is possible during this pandemic

Even now, 100% remote companies like iRonin.IT offer a high quality of service - and they can share their knowledge with you. If you still have doubts, consider the fact that most of our clients have been cooperating with us in the long term, and they’ve continued to do so throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

If you need a trustworthy technology partner with remote work expertise, look no further.

We’ll be happy to introduce our processes and tools at your company and help you deliver a successful product.
