1. The Challenge
innRoad is a New York-based company that offers a SaaS hotel solution that seamlessly integrates property management, global distribution, bookings, and marketing–all on a single, easy-to-use platform designed exclusively for independent hoteliers, small hotel chains, and hotel management companies. InnRoad is an innovative company that delivers a SAAS product to independent hotel owners which allows them to accept reservations through their web/mobile booking engine, manage properties, and integrate with OTAs (Travelocity, Expedia, etc).
Most of innRoad products were built in .NET and SQL Server but they decided to migrate to Python. That is why they needed to build a solid team with highly talented developers. Their goal was to implement Microservices Architecture, and they needed senior developers with experience in that software pattern and really great skills for translating .Net code to Python and improve the performance. InnRoad has offices in India but for several reasons including timezone, quality of work, and seniority, they decided to search for other alternatives to augment their team.
