Software Team Augmentation for FinTech Projects

Do you need more people in the product crew to scale up? Or maybe you have no IT team and need to recruit developers fast?
Try team augmentation with Code & Pepper!

IT team augmentation can bridge any 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 domain knowledge might be in short supply on the local job market. Meanwhile, recruitment, onboarding and staff maintenance can turn into costly and time-consuming processes, stealing your focus from growth and innovation. Team augmentation services can address the issue of talent acquisition with the accuracy and efficiency to match your expectations. It’s cost-effective and flexible, freeing up your internal resources for other strategic business operations. 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.

Our experience in designing and developing digital products for financial institutions gives us the necessary insight to select and verify candidates using accurate criteria.

Team augmentation process by Code & Pepper


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 you can expect ongoing feedback on progress and access to all project resources. Managing remote teams can be challenging. Transparent communication helps reduce distance and gives you control over key information flows.
