My name is Alex Edelstein. I’m a Vice President of Product Management at Salesforce, and I’ve been a professional maker of software since 1991.
Note that everything here is my personal opinion, and my business relationship with JetBI is not a Salesforce engagement.
I have a separate project called UnofficialSF.com. I’ve been working with Sergey and Sahib for quite a while now. Perhaps 2 years or more, assigning them a variety of projects.
This isn’t the first time that I have contracted for software development services. I’ve been doing it on and off for the last 30 years.
I want to report to the JetBI team that Sergey and Sahib collectively have delivered consistently superb work. I would rate them in the top 1% of the software development teams I’ve worked with. I am a very demanding product manager, so you should understand that it takes a great deal just to satisfy me, and it takes much more to get this kind of praise from me.
- The general quality of the code has been exceptional and consistent. There are few bugs that come in
- The team has done an excellent job of interpreting my requirements documents. There has almost never been a misunderstanding. The team asks for clarification where necessary.
- The team also has consistently been willing to make its own design decisions on implementation and I have almost never felt that there would have been a better way.
- The team time estimates have always seemed reasonable, and the team has generally met all of its commitments.
The only limitation I have is budget. If I had more budget, I’d steer more to JetBI, and specifically would seek to engage Sergey and Sahib as much as possible.
