SaaS project and dedicated development team: a perfect match

We all know that SaaS development is an arduous long game. The goal of this performance needs a well-organised development team that works in accordance with a set of requirements. 

These include: a thorough expertise of your business niche, extensive knowledge of SaaS architecture and security. And like any other software solution, SaaS development requires an appropriate amount of programming skills of every team member. Moreover, you need a development team that will work cooperatively with you on a long-term basis. 

In these cases, hiring an outsourcing development team will help you to cover the entire process in one shot. So let’s delve into what development team structure is most suited to your needs if you are planning to build a SaaS solution. 

What development team does your SaaS project need? 

The standard dedicated SaaS development team includes approximately 7-9 members. They can include:

  • Project manager 
  • Business analyst 
  • UI/UX Designer 
  • Software engineers

Let’s review some of the responsibilities and tasks of every team member in greater detail:

Project Manager 

Project Managers are key players in every dedicated team. They are responsible for every organizational challenge in the development process and maintain constant communication directly with project clients. 

The Project Manager coordinates communication between Software Developers, Business Analysts and Designers, and ensures that every task is completed on time by using the appropriate project management tools such as JIRA by Atlassian, Basecamp, Trello, etc. 

Business Analyst

An IT Business Analyst is a person that assists you by transforming your business ideas into ready-to use software requirements - with clear tasks and guidance for developers in mind. 

Business Analysts assist you by determining the project’s business objectives and desired outcomes. This and other important tasks are performed during the Project Discovery Phase

UI/UX Designer 

A UI/UX Designer is usually engaged in the project on a part-time basis and will work to make the future SaaS convenient and user-friendly. 

This phase involves user portraits creation, updating navigation map and system design, as well as preparation of materials for the development team. Learn more about the UI/UX Design process at Axon. 

Software engineers 

Per industry requirements 2 front-end and 2 back-end engineers are usually engaged in the development process. The specific level of their seniority and type of programming language are optional depending on specifications of the project. 

If a SaaS needs to be represented in a mobile format our best advice is to engage iOS and/or Android engineers additionally to both the front-end and back-end engineers. The most important challenge in this case is the synchronization of work between all software developers involved in the project.
