how it works infographic

Hiring an in-house software engineering team in London can be prohibitively expensive and time-consuming. This is why more and more startup founders, agencies and SMEs prefer to build their own digital products with the help of freelancers or offshore outsourcing studios. Yet this solution also has its shortcomings. Even the creme de la creme of freelancers are often slow in response and tend to break deadlines multiple times. No surprise, as they combine working on your project with working on another four or five or with a full-time job.

Some outsourcing software development companies deliver products of exceptional quality and bespoke software solutions, but the chances that they have the exact skills you require readily available are next to zero. Thus, you must either wait while they recruit new engineers for you or for their existing staff to finish working on the current project. It’s hard to say which one will take longer :)

YouTeam’s breakthrough team assembly model takes the best of both of these worlds, leaving their drawbacks behind.

For two years, we have been building our “talent-pool” - a curated network of highly specialised outsourced software product engineering and design studios across continental Europe. Thanks to our proprietary resource availability signalling system, we know in advance when each one of the several hundred carefully selected software developers, hardware engineers or UX/UI designers is finishing his or her current project. This allows us to assemble a cross-functional bespoke software development team with almost any combination of skills and expertise within one working day - and be sure it’s will be ready to embark on your project in maximum two weeks.

We invested over two years continuously improving our outsourced software product development methodology and engineering services. The result is YouTeam’s proprietary project management model, which combines lean approach with product co-ownership and live control over outsourced product development services the development process. In fact, it’s even more agile than the classic lean startup practice.


Defining the MVP

1 to 2 weeks. What to cut and what to leave? Minimum viable product is always tricky. At this stage, we help to find the golden mean that validates your idea at a minimum time and cost. The deliverables of this stage are the map of your product, the interactive wireframes prototype and a product vision document with a detailed scope of work.



2 to 10 weeks. Our digital product development company adheres to user-centered logic. That is why the first thing we produce is a full-fledged interactive look-and-feel prototype. Then we test and update it until user experience becomes truly intuitive. We also usually run extensive founder/team workshops at this stage.



4 to 10 weeks. Continuous outsourced software deployment and Kanban project management methodology allow us to update your beta as quickly as possible based on the market feedback you gather. We also help to set the right KPI tracking system. You have live control over the process via Jira or Trello. All work is done on Time & Materials basis - so you only pay for what has been actually done.


Market Fit
Product Market Fit

After you get the user traction, the business development focus shifts to marketing. While you work with the audience metrics, we continue to build your product - to let you exploit the success and, for the more demanding users, to polish the final result.



YouTeam stays with you as long as you need it. We scale the dedicated team of your project to the required size within 1-3 weeks. Alternatively, the work is smoothly handed over to your in-house team – all the documentation being gradually prepared for this since the first day. We can also help you to raise funds using our vast network of VC connections.
