Handy can best be described as the Uber for handymen. Handy is an app used if you need help finding a cleaning lady, a plumber, or any other similar tasks. Handy has grown significantly over the last few years.
It was early 2018 when the CTO of Handy reached out to Parrolabs asking for assistance by providing an engineering team to upgrade Ruby on Rails and debug its current application. This is in order for its current engineers to focus on developing enhancements and new features.
Parrolabs scaled the team and brought on several developers to work together on the common goal in a so-called "pod". We also included a QA specialist and a Project Manager to Quickly Scale Their Team.
Parrolabs was able to scale a team of hard-to-find Ruby on Rails developers in order for Handy to get through their quarter and meet their targets. Handy was acquired in the next quarter and a management transfer was completed.
We were able to get their app upgraded within the quarter and were able to improve the code and make sure a best practice development process was followed.
