Packaly is an on-demand delivery service that delivers parcels within 60 minutes or at pre-scheduled times. The inspiration to disrupt the on-demand delivery market for retailers came from the long and hard road Axel, the CEO, had to take with delivery companies during his previous experience as an e-commerce entrepreneur.

“First of all, as a startup, it’s important to consider all budgets, but invest mostly in technology. Therefore, it’s been a simple but also fast choice to work with an external development team. It is hard to find talent in The Netherlands, as big tech companies have a lot more to offer right now. We started looking into different countries, which gave us the power to expand our team way faster. ”

Good English, fast communication, and trust all played a role in Packaly‘s decision to extend their team to Moldova.

“The Moldavian developers are fast, highly skilled and know what they are talking about. They got the knowledge you need in an early stage company, but also when you are scaling up and growing your team. This is powerful to scale fast and get answers from your development team constantly.”

The development team now consists of nine people: five developers in Moldova and four in the Netherlands. The diversity of the team and the power of having remote work gives Packaly flexibility and power to focus on their goals and complete detailed sprints.
