FAQs

Have questions? Let's answer them...

Q:

We’ve outsourced before and had difficulties with language barriers. How is First Factory different?

A:

You’ll never have difficulty communicating with our developers, as every team member speaks fluent English. Costa Rica is also a remarkably stable place, and all our developers are well-educated and have a deep passion for the First Factory methodology.

Q:

A massive codebase was handed to us and it’s a mess. Can you help us?

A:

Absolutely! We understand how awful disorganized and repetitive code can seem – and how much it can hurt your business. We can work with you to reorganize and minimize your code base.

Q:

We’ve had to get very granular with our specifications and manage our outsourced projects closely. It isn’t easy. What does First Factory do to make this process smoother?

A:

Unlike many external teams, we’re comfortable working with minimal oversight. We'll even take the lead developing your specifications.

Q:

We feel it’s risky working with outside teams. Do you provide any assurances?

A:

We do. Take a look at our guarantee for new clients.

Q:

We need this, like, yesterday. Can you do it?

A:

We don’t sweat tight deadlines. Reach out and let’s see what we can figure out.

Q:

We need very specific skills for this project. Can your team handle it?

A:

There isn’t a technology we’ve encountered yet that we can’t handle. Our developers have deep expertise in a vast array of different tech, including: Java, PHP, HTML, CSS, JQuery, JavaScript, MongoDB, AWS, C#, Silverlight, AWS, .NET, WPF, WinForms, LINQ and SQL Server.

Q:

Will time zones be a problem?

A:

Never. Our teams in NYC and Costa Rica are only 1-2 hours apart, depending on the time of year.
