Frequently Asked Questions

The exact time to mobilise a team can vary depending on a project’s programming language requirements and availability of talent. Software developers in some cases can be mobilised in as quickly as 2 to 3 business days after an engagement with Adaca commences. We recommend accounting for up to 30 days if your requirements are more unique.

Adaca has a unique model whereby our recruitment team is constantly sourcing and vetting talent for the most common programming languages, meaning these resources can be mobilised faster.

Adaca hires only senior software developers with a minimum of 7 years’ commercial experience as well as a Bachelor’s degree.

Our preference is for developers to have at least 3 years’ experience with the relevant programming language to your project, as well as a Master’s or PhD.

Adaca offers a 30 day replacement guarantee, where if a developer is not suitable for your project, we will replace them completely free of charge. We will also ensure an overlap with the original developer to allow all materials to be handed over.

Adaca supports all major programming languages, including but not limited to TypeScript, JavaScript, Python, .NET, Go, Java, PHP, iOS, and Android. We are also well equipped in all major frameworks such as React, React Native, Node JS, Kotlin, Laravel, and Drupal.

Adaca’s project managers provide a series of standardised and regularly updated reports to our clients including a Gantt chart, changelog, weekly agenda, end of week update, testing plan, decision register, risk register, timesheet, project plan, resource register, and release document.
