Tech startups hire the best engineers in their field to build a transformative solution and deliver powerful change to their market. With more advanced technologies, the experts are often highly specialized for their technical niche. The value of having those experts on the payroll is immeasurable — they advance the technology for your customers, build scalable, elegant solutions, and solve problems and challenges that make your product unbeatable in the industry. Yet, this focus can introduce a challenge when needs arise for skills that are not directly related to that core technology.
Just as traditional manufacturers rely on distributors, many startups with core technologies in machine learning, fintech, biomedical devices, or IoT hardware need specialized software to reliably deliver their value to their users. Medical software requires diligent requirements and verification testing for FDA approval, intricate user interfaces need automated testing or continuous integration testing to make quality more efficient, and, of course, everyone is concerned about data security in their cloud solutions. This aspect of the startup’s solution rarely involves the “secret sauce”, but requires substantial expertise to implement with efficiency, reliability, and scalability.
More and more, startup founders and decision makers are engaging trusted vendor partners to offload the technical requirements that fall outside their core technology, where, for example, the setup and maintenance of a secure, reliable AWS cloud platform, the design and development of an intuitive, extensible UI/UX built in ReactJS, or the establishment of an automated front end test harness in Selenium, can be delivered and supported while your company grows through its most critical early years.
Green Mars has built a dedicated team of software and devops engineers, QA engineers, technical analysts and project managers for the purpose of supporting startups who have need of cloud, UI/UX or testing solutions that support and proffer their core technology. Our team works with yours, as a flexible extension of resources, and our project managers ensure that budgets and expectations are met and managed.
We attract solid engineering talent: passionate about reliable, maintainable, and effective software, and, as part of a consulting firm, they never run out of opportunities to build and support stable and secure platforms or to develop powerful interfaces that promote the value of our client’s core technology. Our team collaborates with each other and with our clients, building relationships and understanding priorities and caveats, an integral engagement that is rarely seen in other consulting models.
This is why Green Mars exists: so that startups can invest in their core technology, confident that we are filling the gaps in the technical stack while they grow.
