THE PROCESS

The process of assembling the team went through four main phases:

1. We started the process with an on-site workshop with Fork to identify the best tech stack for the project, team structure and which team is going to cover which areas

2. It was decided that Q will cover frontend development, and we assembled the team of 6 senior frontend developers which worked for 6 months building and launching hilti.com

3. After the official launch of hilti.com, the team was reduced to 3 dedicated senior fronted developers

4. Year and a half after the launch, our team consisting of 3 frontend developers still work closely with Hilti and Fork team on new features, upgrades and maintenance with regular trips to Cologne and Liechtenstein

The following technologies were used:
