Twiga Foods

Twiga Foods is a tech-enabled startup bridging gaps in food and market security through an organized platform for an efficient, fair, transparent and formal marketplace.

One of the biggest hindrances Twiga has faced as they grow is access to experienced tech talent. It takes a considerable amount of time to shortlist, interview, and onboard new talent hindering the speed at which the tech team can build and ship.

By leveraging our developer for hire service, Twiga has managed to bolster their developer team and increase their output. Two developers from the iSC team, a senior front-end developer and a senior back-end developer, work on a day-to-day basis with the Twiga tech team. They are embedded within the team and are involved in the planning, development, and shipping of different aspects of the Twiga platform.

Scope of work:

  1. Participation in sprint planning
  2. Optimizing operations of the Data Management System which powers Twiga Foods’ operation from the point of harvest till the shop
  3. Creating disaster recovery mechanisms for the Twiga infrastructure
  4. Creating a development environment that makes it easier for new developers to get started. With a few steps, a new developer can set up the entire codebase, database and third-party services on the local machine
  5. User testing in the form of field visits and rollouts

Our work with Twiga Foods is ongoing as of November 2018.

“We engaged iHub Software Consulting to provide us with consultants to work on various teams in our technology department. As a fast-growing company having a high rate of product development, we wanted to ensure that we worked with experienced engineers that would produce quality work in a timely manner, and they were able to execute this for us.” – Caine Wanjau, CTO, Twiga Foods
