Project development

Foundevs offers Customers project development service in cases when Customer has an idea/request to build new software product/module/service and wants this idea to be implemented from scratch to production ready state

Service definition

As an input Foundevs receives Customer idea and vision of what needs to be implemented, and as an output Customer gets fully functioanl software product.

This path between an idea and fully ready product is fully owned by Foundevs team, and here is the list of activities that Foundevs team is completing to turn idea into real piece of softare that brings business value to the Customer:

Idea discovery

Idea discovery phase serves to articulate vision and scope of the project. Foundevs business analyst works closely with the Customer to identify business goals and suggest how they can be achieved through the software product. Output of this phase is typically “Vision and scope” document where all parties agree on the goals that are to be achieved in that project and where high level scope is defined.


Design and Architecture phase comes next after Idea discovery phase and the goal of this phase is to create architecture for the project. Well designed architecture saves lots of efforts down the road as the project evolves. Foundevs architect and business analyst work together to make sure architecture covers all use cases outlined on Idea discovery phase. Foundevs business analyst and designer also start to work on first prototypes and mockups during this phase. DevOps and engineers often start setting up the environments, CI/CD on that stage.

Analysis, Requirements and Design

Requirements and Analysis are activities typically held throught the project as the project goes. Foundevs business analyst is working with the Customer on requirements detalization and writing requirements documentation for Foundevs engineers.

Foundevs designer works on the UX and UI as detailed requirements are being discussed.

There is a small group of projects called “Waterfall” projects, which means requirements and design phase should be accomplished before the start of the project, but here in Foundevs we believe more in Agile methodology that allows adopt to changing business environment as the project goes.

Implementation and Quality assurance

Implementation and quality assurance are key activities when Foundevs software engineers work closely with business analyst - to ensure implementation meets all business requirements, and with quality assurance engineers - to ensure highest quality standards for the product.

Release and Support

Once the team delivered a piece of product that can bring value to the Customer, this piece can be released to production. Further development iterations will serve to deliver the rest of the product features. Foundevs team also allocates capacity to make adjustments to the product based on Customer and users feedback.

Who and how may benefit

Medium business
  1. When founders have no tech team to start MVP development
  2. Lower project cost saves money that is so critical for startup on early stages
  1. Don’t have to hire engineers inhouse for short-mid term projects
  2. When don’t have inhouse expertise
  3. When inhouse team is focused on company critical tasks but projects for sustaining operational efficiency still need to be completed

Customer is in full control

Throughout the whole project lifecycle Customer has full control over developmnet project. We believe that transparency and collaboration help make project successfull. Here is how we can help to achieve them:

Daily synchs

Customer is very welcome to attend team daily standups and follow on team progress

Full control

Foundevs always shares Project Management, Issue Tracking, Version Control Systems for Customer to track day to day progress.

Sprint reports

Project manager shares sprint reports with all involved stakeholders biweekly, which allows everyone involved track team progress.


Team demonstrates product increment on biweekly demo meetings. Short feedback cycle guarantees product meets all business requirements.


Models of cooperation

Fixed Price

  • Requirements, Scope, costs and timelines are fixed;
  • Higher cost per hour due to project risks;
  • New requirements are treated as change requests to initial scope and are charged separately;
  • Works well for really small proejcts with perfectly defined requirements.

Time and Material

  • Scope is flexible;
  • 95% Foundevs Customers use this model;
  • Payments after each iteration, Customer pays for completed tasks in that iteration. That helps for project and budget planning;
  • Works well for any project type (new application development, reengineering, application enhancement);
  • Doesn't require all requiremtns from day one, can be elaborated as the project goes;
  • Lower cost per hour compared to Fixed price.
