Prices start at $10k/mo for two engineers.
For each engineering role, this will contain:
No long-term commitment. Cancel anytime. Devs are yours to keep.
Sometimes, you're not even sure what the dev team is doing. The smallest fixes take days, and every new feature introduces two new bugs. You can't even remember the last time the PM was able to answer a simple question without having to "get back to you on that." Worse, if you switch to another agency, you're pretty sure that they would want to start from scratch (and put you right back where you are now). It's time to build your own in-house engineering team, but you're unsure how to find, vet, and manage quality dev talent. We have three tiers to make sure you do it correctly.
We will provide a custom engineering framework that we’ll use to grow and run a team that will be able to accomplish your goals in the near term and the future. For each engineering role, this will contain messaging for job posts; custom coding challenges and evaluation criteria; common responses for candidates; onboarding guides for new engineers and managers; software development workflow; and a management framework for the specific types of engineers that we hire.
For each engineering role, discovery involves 1-3 meetings and is typically two or three weeks in duration (depending on scheduling and your availability).
After phase 1, we will handle the recruiting and vetting process for you. We will take care of all job posting, candidate interviews, custom coding challenges, and evaluation. We’ll run the hiring funnel and only submit engineers who prove they have the skills and temperament to execute the product roadmap.
This phase will continue until we reach the target headcount for each role. Expect to have your first engineer ready four weeks after the engagement begins and to have new engineers arrive every two to four weeks afterwards until target headcount is reached.
After we hire engineers in phase 2, and we will onboard and manage all engineers. In this phase we directly ensure that all recruited engineers quickly get up to speed and regularly ship production code.
We will onboard each engineer and make sure that they follow all coding guidelines, work within our workflow process, and are proactive in collaborating with product leadership. We will hold weekly check-ins with each engineer, make sure that they are communicating steady progress in daily standups, and we’ll run the weekly group meeting.
Once things are running at full-speed, at any point we can transition management to your team and make sure that the engineering department will continue to regularly ship product deliverables.
All engineering management takes place via public or semi-private written communication that can be seamlessly transferred to a new manager of your choosing.
Superstruct has developed a repeatable system for finding, recruiting, vetting, onboarding, and managing talented software engineers. This system integrates over 10 years of software engineering management experience with deep technical knowledge to help companies clear milestones faster, cheaper, and with less risk.
David has led teams of engineers to ship projects like ultra-high-scale ad servers handling over 10 billion requests per day, online learning systems, white-label performance marketing SAAS platforms, and Project Matterhorn, the system that would eventually become Disney.com.
"At the board meeting I went over the progress on the engineering side. We closed hundreds of bugs and tickets — literally hundreds. They were blown away."
- Aaron Rasmussen, Founder and CEO of Outlier
“David’s help was a game changer for me. I spent months floundering to find a developer for my team. (I had, I realize now, a sub-par, ad-hoc hiring “strategy”.) But after I started working with David, I had hired a developer within the first week - and even better, I had a tested, reusable strategy for hiring quality engineers. Thanks, David!”
