ShiftStream, a visionary company in Canada, had a bold idea – to develop a revolutionary automated scheduling and workforce management software. However, their journey wasn’t without its hurdles. Their biggest challenge? Finding skilled developers who could navigate the complexities of a brand new framework, Meteor.JS. Additionally, they needed flexibility to scale their development team up or down as project needs evolved.
