Frequently Asked Questions

Where is Rather Labs based?

Although our team is remote-first and spread all over the world, most of Rather Labs' talent comes from Latin America.

The working hours of our teams are aligned with North American business hours, and only 4 hours different from European time.

This makes Rather Labs an excellent cost-effective development solution for most entrepreneurs.

Will I Have My Own Team Working On My Product?

Rather Labs team will select a Principal Engineer with subject matter expertise who will lead the initial research, will be designing and assembling the main system architecture and, together with you, selecting key milestones in the development roadmap.

During the development of the project, the Principal Engineer will be leading technically a team integrated by senior developers and coordinated by a Project Manager.

How Can I Estimate the Cost of Launching an MVP?

Usually, the development of an MVP is composed of three phases: an initial inception phase, during which the Principal Engineer expert in the field conducts research focused on analyzing the design, proposing robust alternative solutions and evaluating the idea.

Next, we move on to the development stage, in which we assign the Principal Engineer a squad, usually composed of frontend devs, backend devs, blockchain devs devops experts and a project manager.

At the end, we reach the last stage, which includes a strong testing, QA and documentation stage. 

Depending on the project you want to build, the timing of each stage will vary. It is possible that your project does not require an inception stage, or a testing stage. At each stage, the cost is directly related to the developer positions.

So the final cost will be completely transparent, and calculated based on the rate of our developers and the total time that each one dedicates to the project.
