Partnership experience

A faster way to attain your goals

BankUnited faced difficulties securing top-tier talent to boost a digital transformation project within the company. “When people look at a bank, they don't typically think of technology, but we —just like other enterprises out there— are going through a digital transformation, which means we need to get top tech talent, which is a difficult proposition,” James explained. 

Navigating the logistics —vetting, screening, law compliance— to find the ideal team for project implementation was a daunting and time-consuming task.

James shared, “We've got lofty ideas, we've got programs that we want to stand up for, but we don’t have the resources or talent to do that.

GoFasti came into this scenario to provide support, filling the gaps and assisting BankUnited in assembling the required team to scale its projects effectively.

“Their staff augmentation model is really good,” James affirmed, assuring this method allowed the company to get additional resources and faster results.


Perfect matches within budget, on your time

GoFasti understood and met BankUnited’s hiring needs by building its technical team with two huge bonuses: cost-effectiveness and timezone alignment.

“One of the benefits of partnering with a company like GoFasti is hiring talent at a discount, which means all your budgetary requirements are met. The price point makes everyone happy,” James expressed.

GoFasti helped BankUnited lower costs while ensuring talent quality. 

“The model they use, the nearshore model, helps us because we don’t have to deal with the time differences. Now, we suddenly have the manpower and resources to attain our goals,” the Director of Software Engineering explained.

BankUnited has engaged top developers and engineers in a similar time zone within budget. 

The company has moved forward in its digital transformation to provide its clients with efficient online banking solutions, from immediate payments to fund transfers.

James emphasized, “I would absolutely recommend GoFasti. I think their model is really good. If you can get talent to augment your team at this price point, you can get additional resources that will let you deliver faster. And that’s been the secret to my success.”
