Packaly is an on-demand delivery service that delivers parcels within 60 minutes or at the most convenient time possible. 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 companies in e-commerce.

“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 were the factors that influenced Packaly‘s decision in extending 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 consists now of 9 people: 5 developers in Moldova and 4 in the Netherlands. The diversity of the team and the power of having remote working gives Packaly flexibility and power to focus on what is needed and finish the sprints very detailed.
