Senior-level engineers and designers
YouTeam carefully selects only senior and upper-middle level specialists for its dedicated teams. All our software developers and UX/UI engineers have at least five years of experience. Own startup record is considered an advantage.
Analysis → UX/UI → Development
YouTeam’s unique co-operative business model allows it to be a one-stop shop for all kinds of expertise your startup may require, from quick Ruby-on-Rails prototyping to C# hardcoding, from UX flows modelling to logo design. Our approach implies careful analysis of your business model and brainstorming for optimal solutions at all stages. You focus on the innovation, we do the rest.
Come and meet us at Aldgate Tower!
Being startup founders ourselves, we know well that a smooth communication with the team is crucial. Of course, all our engineers are fluent in English, but when you are building a startup, you want to be confident that your team is quick in the uptake. That is why at YouTeam’s Aldgate Tower office you have a dedicated project manager, whose key duty is to make sure that you and the team are always on the same page.
No-risk legal framework
Transparent IP, UK jurisdiction, free-exit T&M
YouTeam takes founder’s legal protection very seriously. We have invested a lot in our contractual framework to eliminate all risks related to the team-founder business relationship. That includes a robust chain of intellectual property protection/transition, as well as a carefully-designed free-exit Time&Material agreement, which provides you with maximum possible flexibility. All contracts are under the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom.
Built by founders
YouTeam is a company built by startup founders. All our project and product managers are past founders too. We’ve been in your shoes many times - and have learned the hard way the things you don’t find in textbooks. This experience, as well as continuous learning from new projects, allows us to add a no-bullshit consulting component to the design and development work. This includes carving the MVP scope, choosing optimal monetisation and referral traffic tools, setting up the quantitative and qualitative feedback gathering system, developing the launch plan, doing VC intros, and many, many more.
Minimize total money and time invested
At YouTeam, your project’s cost and timing is lower not only due to the reasonable rates. The whole product development process is built according to lean methodology. We start our work by designing a sharply focused vision of your product free of non-essential features - a so-called Minimum Viable Product. The key idea is to eliminate waste at all stages and start getting measurable feedback from the audience ASAP. Then we iterate the development in fast cycles to reach your product/market fit with a minimum of time and money invested.
Development houses in continental Europe
30+ independent tech and design teams
YouTeam currently partners with more than 30 tech teams in Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic and Spain. We prefer to work with small-to-medium vendors, but who are experienced and highly specialised in a particular field. Each prospect partner passes through a multi-stage qualification procedure. This gives us access to a unique and carefully curated talent pool of engineers who would otherwise be unavailable for a remote client. YouTeam’s work circle implies regular visits to the developers’ HQ, where intense workshops with dedicated teams are run.
YouTeam’s modular approach to creating a syndicate of several specialised teams, depending on the needs of a particular project, allows immediate access to the top talent with the most relevant experience.
