Lantern Leverages Andela to Rebuild Entire Platform Under 3 Months

Lantern, a public benefit corporation, is a single source of guidance for navigating life before and after a death. The team had a three-month deadline to rewrite its entire product. Every day they weren’t hiring, they were losing time as new releases introduced bugs in their core platform with every commit and deploy.

Technical Lead, Shae Smith, evaluated Andela for quick access to high-performing engineers. After looking into alternative staffing models that were short-term or project-based, Shae decided to partner with Andela because engineers were embedded on her team full-time and long-term.

Also, since Andela provides global talent outside of the US, Shae saw the added benefit of having engineers provide diverse experiences and perspectives to Lantern’s end-of-life planning platform.

Other software outsourcing companies seemed more project-based–you give them a project and they give back. You kind of throw the project over a wall. With Andela, the engineers are part of our team, are really excited to be working with us, and are invested in our success. That’s a huge plus for us. Shae Smith, Technical Lead at Lantern

Immediately, Andela engineers made an impact on meeting Lantern’s three-month deadline. Download now to read the full success story >>
