With 300 employees and 9 offices worldwide, the scale of Mambu’s operations is truly global. We knew we’d have to approach their case in a different manner. The tools chosen for the project are well-known to be reliable, secure, and future-proof. On top of that, we have had positive experiences with them previously while working with other clients of ours so we were able to vouch for them. For us as developers using the best-in-class tools that we already know means we can move much faster with production. With agility being one of Mambu’s core philosophies being able to start quickly was a huge plus for us. When Mambu approached us, their legacy website was sluggish, overly complex and lack of structured data, making it hard to work with. They wanted to change that, put a fresh design in place, and simplify workflow for different teams but keep their best practices.
Mambu already had established structures. Different teams at the company used different tools for their operations. We had to integrate the website with those services so, for example, the HR team could still use Lever for job listings, the marketing team could continue to receive leads via HubSpot and the customer success team could access customer data through a portal app.
Thankfully, Gatsby has a rich plugin ecosystem that made integration simple and allowed the teams to continue using their preferred services.
Most importantly, the Jamstack approach helped get things up and running very quickly and gave us a lot of room to implement new ideas. Going for Gatsby and other established tools in the stack ensured that we don’t spend time re-inventing the wheel and that we get the best possible results.
Working with large companies means various stakeholders are involved in the process. As a development team, we had to incorporate their unique preferences and opinions into the final product.
With this in mind, it was of utmost importance that our communication processes were flawless. For us, that meant being transparent and proactive so that we knew what we built for them was as good as possible.
