“Our mission is to create outstanding technology to make the payment experience simple, personal, affordable, and accessible to everyone.” - SweetPay
SweetPay is a fast-growing business and wants to expand across different countries and continents. Their main challenge to do so was to improve business and technical processes in a sustainable manner. Important factors in this challenge were the compliance and security regulations across different continents. From the IT perspective, this meant high-availability, new approaches, and state-of-the-art cloud solutions. With this plan being made, SweetPay concluded they had the knowledge nor the experience to develop such solutions.
To execute this plan, SweetPay decided to partner up with Typeqast. Having a strong team of senior developers (Java, React, AWS) and experienced DevOps professionals was a necessity. Typeqast was able to design such a custom-tailored team of professionals, consisting of a Senior DevOps Professional and multiple Senior Java Engineers, quickly and the project was ready to get started.
Together with Typeqast, Sweetpay decided to follow the path of DevOps and to fully integrate AWS as a cloud provider in the IT infrastructure. The new approach meant more agility with SCRUM as the underlying methodology. SCRUM approach led to regular feedback through sprint reviews directly from stakeholders, including customers, and enabled course corrections early, which is less costly and time-consuming than later in the process. JIRA was selected as the main project management software and has been adjusted appropriately with dashboards, integration with Bitbucket, and custom workflows that were loosely based on the Gitflow methodology. This led to a smoother overall workflow and has improved tracking and auditing within the IT department.
Typeqast was chosen due to our extensive experience in cloud-native solutions and the high level of professionalism we are known for. SweetPay recognized Typeqast as a company that can provide the full solution in a short time frame and Typeqast helps SweetPay become a real disruptor in the world of FinTech.
