Willing to adjust the budget and pay for quality. The main thing is to get the job done and done right. If what I am asking is a lot for ...
“Don't believe the hype. Believe the results. I am just a guy who wanted to make his dream a reality but trusted the wrong company. The demo I received after investing 9,000 usd and three months of my life was so horribly executed, I decided it was better not finishing, lose the 9,000 usd and start again. Does that tell you anything?
There were so many excuses for not producing the results that I wanted. The demo was poorly done and the amount of hand holding during development was ridiculous. I provided a visual guide, wireframe and comments in bootcamp, and they still could not follow orders. Also their idea of agile methodology was a joke. The lesson I learned from dealing with such a crappy team was, you don't expect C-level people to produce A-level results.
Another big problem was the lack of accountability towards team members. There really is no way for you to know if they are really working or just checking emails. You have to watch HireRussians very carefully or they will bleed you dry if you are not careful. The lesson learned here was if they "don't get it" after giving them explicit instructions, they just don't care.
HireRussians doesn't care about the quality of their work. The demo they made had such obvious flaws and errors, it seemed like a bad joke. Any company that doesn't have enough pride in their own work to execute it properly is not a company I'd work with. The lesson learned here is actions speak louder than words, the past doesn't guarantee the future, accept nothing less than results.
To sum it all up, this company failed me so horribly, that I made the decision that losing 9,000 usd and starting all over again was better than finishing with them. Yes, that's right. I didn't even finish the project. I didn't get any code. I didn't want that crappy demo with my name attached to it. If you want your project to be great, it's not going to happen with HireRussians.
