Project overview

GOIO Data helps depository banks keep their customer data digitized and provides updated interbank information on security portfolios. Our client, a fintech company Fincite, was looking for the right partner to trust them in hiring software development professionals.
The new members of GOIO’s augmented team were required to build additional data harmonization and aggregation features, including the processing of different types of data — from paper media to .pdf, .csv, and etc.

Team requirements

Within 8 weeks, we had to hire two Python developers, one JavaScript developer, one Automated Quality Control specialist, and Scrum master.
Our main requirement was developers must have some previous experience with banking projects. It was also crucial that our candidates were proficient with Scrum.

Challenge

As far as recruiting most of the team was relatively easy, the main challenge we faced was finding a Python AQA developer within a very short time frame.
This position is considered to be rather rare on the market. What made things slightly even more challenging that a candidate also had to fit additional criteria: previous experience with the banking industry.

Solution

Since finding the right Python AQA specialist that would match all the listed requirements seemed somewhat risky, we came up with an alternative solution.
Rather than recruiting a Python AQA specialist, we suggested our client hire an experienced AQA specialist (without deep expertise in Python) and another Python developer that would act like a mentor. Since our client was eager to start the project as soon as possible, he was totally happy with the solution that we proposed.
