ConsenSys Turns to Topcoder for a Unique Collaboration
Lindeman reached out to Topcoder to collaborate at this edge of technology, working with experts within Topcoder’s community who were highly skilled in the Ethereum Blockchain/security space to pilot innovative projects and implement new software languages “We gained access to resources from people around the world that there’s no way we could have found,” says Lindeman of the talent ConsenSys has been able to access through Topcoder. With Topcoder’s help, ConsenSys finished high-quality projects faster than ever. “The velocity of the process is really fast,” says Lindeman. “It’s days, not weeks or months.” In a conversation with Topcoder, Lindeman shared additional highlights from the Topcoder-ConsenSys collaboration.
- ConsenSys and Topcoder have completed well over 50 separate projects together in just over a year.
- The velocity for turnaround was remarkably fast: days, not weeks or months.
- ConsenSys was able to target specific individuals in the Topcoder community with particular interest in what they were doing
- The team at ConsenSys was most impacted by how Topcoder’s experts made them feel; as if they were all on the same team, working toward the same goals, with the same levels of investment.
- ConsenSys has more large projects and product pipelines, with many deadlines upcoming.
