The challenge

Subsequent to the seed capital raise for development of products to combat climate change, CHOOOSE had to quickly set up a skilled product team. To meet its customers’ timelines and requirements, the team had to be incredibly fast, experienced, and easy to scale up with time.

The workshops

CHOOOSE team invited us to their office in Oslo for 3 days. This allowed us to interact more closely and learn about the problem they are facing. We explored carbon footprint calculations and compensation, learned about the mechanics and were able to focus on the appropriate interface design in a short time.

Scope of work

Our role was to create a platform allowing employers and employees of large and small companies to compensate for their carbon footprint in a quick and easy way, enabling them to have a positive impact on their environment.

  • Research

  • Workshops & App prototyping

  • Product Design

  • Development & QA

The solution

After reviewing various options around the globe, the founder came across Startup Development House. Having verified our developers, the company decided to form a team with us with a clear intention of scaling over time. Our developers, UX/UI designers, joined forces with CHOOOSE’s existing team. The setup remains flexible and adjusts to the company’s growth.

The wireframes

The first wireframes have already been created at the customer's workshop. Thanks to that we knew which way we were going with the solutions. It also helped us strongly understand who is the target user of the product and focus directly on the design under it.

How to find a suitable agile workflow?

Our focus was put on front end development. We applied the structure that allows for delivering high-quality digital products. Our JavaScript leader has stayed in direct contact with CHOOOSE’s CTO and Head of Product; together they set priorities and plans for future development. Then, the leader breaks the plans down into tasks for the team. This setup lets them work quickly and deliver the results in no time. Our design team has been working closely with the client’s Product Manager on planning, wireframing and user interface design. We have been supporting the sales team with building design teasers of the new solutions.

Accessible from any device

Thanks to our team’s vast experience from many different industries, they were able to meet the high demands of CHOOOSE’s clients’ projects and its internal team’s quality requirements. Hiring the full team within two weeks from the first approach let the company start new development in no time and run its daily operations with no interruption. On top of that, choosing our team allowed them to optimize the costs of hiring developers and let them do more for climate change reduction.
