Delivered value

Several of our engineers work with the client full-time, but the client can request more engineers to cope with their peak workload periods. The combination of our burstable capacity and time and materials cooperation model gives Elevated Third flexibility to plan and budget for more projects. 

The process

At first, our cooperation was project-based: The client hired us to complete their smaller-scale projects. However, considering the number of projects, and their type and size, the project-based model created a lot of management overhead both for us and the client. 

That’s why we shifted to dedicated teams. Our core dedicated team consists of two full-time engineers. And when two isn't enough, we provide the client with more people, building dedicated teams of up to 10. It usually takes us 2-4 weeks to staff the core team, and 1-2 weeks to extend it. Our client chooses to handle project management on their side. 

In over three years of cooperation, we helped the client build 50+ projects for various companies in medicine, finance, science, and consulting, as well as nonprofits and universities. The usual project duration is several months; some have taken over a year.
