Team augmentation: bridge the talent gap

Keeping up with the pace of development in a rapidly changing FinTech environment is one of the biggest challenges faced by product teams. The pressure of deliverables is on… but experts with relevant experience are in short supply on the local market.

Recruitment, onboarding and staff maintenance can turn into costly and time-consuming processes, stealing your focus from growth and innovation. Building effective, diverse and flexible product teams can be easier and faster with team augmentation.

IT team augmentation services address the issue of talent acquisition with accuracy and efficiency

Software team augmentation gives you the agility to scale and a vibrant talent pool of software development and design experts to pick and choose from. It’s cost-effective and flexible, freeing up your internal resources for other strategic business operations. If you’re a startup, you can release your MVP way faster, while scaleups get a chance to prototype and innovate in a flash.

Software team augmentation:
FinTech-driven approach

There is a world of difference between recruitment agencies and a specialised software house. Experience in designing and developing financial products gives us a unique insight to select and verify candidates using accurate criteria.

This approach to software team augmentation limits the risk of mismatch to the absolute minimum. A customised set of requirements, expert evaluation and smooth onboarding are just the first steps to reaping all benefits for your technology and business goals.

Open communication and transparency guarantee instant feedback and full control over the whole process. Team augmentation services by Code & Pepper include a generous maintenance package to ensure peace of mind and long-term satisfaction on both sides.

Your custom team building process


The first step is to define the requirements: what skills, experience and work culture you are looking for. Next, we establish the recruitment process that should result in hiring the best possible candidates in an optimal timeframe.


Multi-step verification process ensures that only top quality candidates are invited to the final interview. Our Tech Leads evaluate test assignments in terms of compatibility with your quality policy but the final decision is always yours to make.


We make sure new team members integrate with your employees, understand the development process and get to know the product well. It’s up to you what communication tools and technologies you choose.


The flow is simple: you choose the people for your team, we take care of their performance through the whole cooperation. The goal is to minimise risks connected with product development and ensure high team performance.


It’s one of our core values, so expect ongoing feedback on progress and access to all project resources. Managing remote teams is challenging. Transparent communication helps reduce distance and gives you control over key information flows.

Smart Pension

Team augmentation for a fast-growing pension scheme platform

Smart Pension is a UK-based workplace pension provider, offering self-service and automatic enrollment via a digital platform and a complimentary mobile app. Having conquered their domestic market, the company has decided to step up its game and introduce highly customisable solutions, which could be adapted to different regulatory requirements around the globe. With that new direction, the engineering team had to grow exponentially to maintain optimal development pace.

Code & Pepper assisted Smart Pension as a recruitment partner by building and handling remote teams of dedicated Ruby on Rails developers.

Agile team management combined with strong product ownership enabled self-organisation and coordination of efforts, to make sure all engineering crews work in full synchrony. Good culture fit is everything in team augmentation, but in this case it also covered high standards in code quality, extra focus on testing and mastery of CI/CD processes.
