First step: Code and infrastructure review
Because we were taking over the ongoing development of an existing website, we first conducted a thorough code and infrastructure audit. This revealed parts of the website that needed to be upgraded to handle Hello Mamas’ future expansion. At the heart of the website is a matching algorithm that matches moms who live nearby and have similar interests – and we identified bottlenecks that needed to be eliminated to ensure that it can all function well under heavy loads.
Hello Mamas' founders have a keen sense of what new features will engage their members. Working closely with them, we helped to plan a product roadmap that scoped out future upgrades and enhancements. Because Hello Mamas is a young startup, we prioritized the improvements that would make the biggest and most immediate impact with the smallest amount of development time.
Ongoing maintenance and updates
Using the product roadmap as a guide, our development team is rolling out feature enhancements on an ongoing basis. We also monitor their servers and provide proactive server maintenance, installing necessary operating systems updates and patches to keep things secure and operational.
