Case Study

Handy uses Parrolabs to provide a flexible NearShoring solution Handy, the “airbnb for handymen”, approached Parrolabs for some help on their Rails development. Handy is located in NYC, where rates for developers are very high due to an increase in demand. The case was very well defined making it easy for us to commit to delivering a number of developers and we implemented the code from our office in Medellin in an efficient and quick fashion.
