He has shared some insights and resources from one of the best software and mobile app development companies in an exclusive interview with MobileAppDaily.
We believe that IT is a very complex industry and Tech has changed many industries and will continue to do so in the next few years. Usual entrepreneurs will need some strong and long term partners to boost their business at the edge of IT. We at Rocketech make the world better with the implementation of software products.
We choose mobile development because we see the value and a big impact on mobile phones. We started with just a few developers about 4 years ago. Now we have about 40 people in the mobile development department.
Yep! We specialize in developing complex custom software from scratch and continue scaling up it together with founders and product owners.
Reputation, founders that are still with us. Teams that are high-level specialists.
I think that it is better to start building up to something simple. After the first MVP, you should try to find out a better product-market fit and keep making cust dev together with users. If we are talking about industries, utility tool apps, streaming services, entertainment, edutainment, casual games, educational apps.
The future is behind the games, streaming, education, FoodTech, and instant e-commerce, DIY tech projects, and specialty goods for personal homes. Also, the delivery industry of e-commerce products, digitalization of big properties, and real estate are likely to experience the boom.
All of those trends will continue to blow up the world especially in those countries where digitalization is just starting to grow and will continue to do so more and much quicker. I’m talking about Africa, Europe, Russia and CIS countries, Asia and Middle East regions. IoT will come back again more strongly because of a big trend for personal house improvements.
I think the same as it was always - Native Interfaces that are designed by phone developers which are Apple and Google.
I was a salesman and still, I carry this role in the team. I used to be the PM & developer myself. All the roles are important. I have started my career a long time ago and from courier step by step I came up to starting the Rocketech company together with my best partner.
Of all the studies that I had, the Singapore program was the best one. The name of the program was Commercialisation of Innovation. I had a grant from a Russian venture company to study there. I always dreamed about my own business and after what this study showed me and taught me I have decided that one day I will open this business.
When I came back to Moscow it was another type of city and everywhere was all about innovations and IT. I have decided to apply for a scholarship at HSE for the Government science technology and innovation master program. They explained how the government is helping IT companies.
Making every release. Relationship between a Product Owner and the development team. If there is no trust it will not move forward.
Startups of course! Because they are smaller, more available, more flexible, and faster in making decisions.
The most important is to understand the critical functionality in the beginning and start implementing it first. In my experience time to market takes it all and if you see with your app that there are a need and users who are looking for what you are thinking about then just make it with the dev team.
Same as it was with reputation and big relationships that you always have to build up!
Thank you for the interview and make great projects!
