Our partnership with KNOWD started in Nov 2019. They came to us with an existing website that was developed in-house. KNOWD's goal was to: 1. Add more functionalities to their website 2. Develop a browser extension, and 3. Create an essay editor app. They needed a front-end developer to join their team: a developer who would not only speed up development but also meet their very specific requirements and high expectations. Apart from the need for a very specific type of hire, we had to face complex product requirements set by the Client and the outdated and misconfigured API which had to be fixed.


We introduced solutions such as: Guaranteeing the exchange of developer(s) that do not meet client's expectations Rewriting the proposed application from scratch Establishing detailed communication while implementing specific features due to the complex flow of the application. Using JavaScript, React, Redux, and Ant design which the client is familiar with, to enable them to subsequently maintain the platform in-house.


As a final result, we delivered a perfect team member to our Client, who not only delivered the functionalities required in the product development brief, but also proposed a series of improvements. Now, KNOWD has a text editor app that checks the essay structure level of users, following Peterson's rule. After delivering the product we have proposed a series of improvement recommendations, including intruding a new API version alongside some additional features.
