Frequently Asked Questions
If you have any other questions, we would be happy to answer them for you Contact Us
What's your typical client?
We’re all about startups and new products. Our typical client ranges from a guy in his garage working tirelessly on his new idea to a VP or Director sitting in a corner office trying to refresh her company and break ground with her new product offering. Either way, we work with companies that truly care about their products and don’t bring bureaucracy to the table.
Where are you based?
OneMonthApp.com's business and development headquarters are located in London, UK.
What are your Time Zone and Work Hours?
OneMonthApp.com's Development Team is located at GMT. We work a 40 hour week from 9-5 each day. In some special circumstances we can adjust our schedules.
Do you only work remotely?
No, roughly 80% of our projects are done remotely. However, given some notice we will send our consultants to you so they can work onsite.
What is communication like with your team?
We are in constant communication with you. During development, we do daily “standup” calls for 15 minutes each day. During design phases we do calls after each deliverable (twice a week). We also do weekly planning meetings which last 1hr approximately. We’re always on Skype chat and we’re available by email. We also share our code through GitHub so you can see exactly what we’re coding at any moment.
Who would be my main point of contact if I use you guys?
Our Project Managers always serve as the main point of contact for any client. Unlike many development firms, we offer each of our clients a PM who is there to support you, give you feedback, delegate tasks to the engineers and do anything else necessary to insure your success. They’re very technical and are excellent coders in their own right.
What are your rates? How can I find out how much my project will cost?
Contact us directly! We’re really competitive and we’ll be happy to do an estimate for you. We work by time and materials, so please note that estimates are not binding quotes. Rather they are ballpark figures that can be narrowed down once we know more about what you want to build.
TECHNOLOGY & PROCESS
What services do you offer?
In short, we offer Web and Mobile Development, Design and Front End Development. Clients can use any individual service, all services at once or any combination thereof.
What Development process do you use?
We use an altered Scrum Agile Development process that we’ve optimized for our team. In short, we run 1 week sprints and iterate as fast as humanly possible. We do daily “standup” calls and weekly planning meetings. At the end of each week we hope to have built a new feature, launch something publicly or accomplished another goal.
Do you do TDD and BDD? What about Continuous Integration? What about Pair Programming?
Yes, yes, yes and yes. We care deeply about solid code that won’t break every time you change a feature. We do TDD and BDD at your request, but can also speed up work if you are not interested. We use such tools at Jenkins, CI-Joe and IntegrityApp for continuous integration. We pair program when problems are difficult. In other situations, engineers will coordinate, but code stories on their own.
Yep, we use GitHub.
Which Database do you use?
Depends on the application... We usually use NoSQL (Redis, mongo and couch). We are also comfortable with MySQL.
Which analytics tools do you use and recommend to clients?
We’re strong believers in funnel analysis. We use KISSMetrics quite often, though we are experimenting with MixPanel. We use Optimizely for simple A/B and testing. We use Google analytics for anything else.
Do you work with partners?
Yes, we have a variety of partners ranging from resellers to marketing agencies to law firms to incubators to other development firms and so on and so forth. If you think we can work together, please reach out to us at info@OneMonthApp.com.
