Brief history

SmartDev was founded in 2014 by a team of Swiss entrepreneurs. SmartDev’s initial goal was to focus on fintech services, developing custom solutions for companies in the industry. In 2016, Smartdev landed a contract with a major credit card issuer in Switzerland that kicked the company into high gear. The following year, in 2017, SmartDev began a contract with a start-up company owned by AirAsia.

In 2020, the company changed hands to where it is now — a component of Verysell Group, which is also a Swiss company. This has led to significant growth of the company’s offshore development business and the release of new apps in fintech and many other sectors.

In 2021, SmartDev is big enough to matter but small enough to care.

Why SmartDev?

We have a proven track record of delivering squad-based recruitment for software-driven organisations across the UK, Europe, and offshore. Recent examples of building development squads include our work with Motorpoint, Resonate, Dunelm and ENSEK. Our commitment is to build deep, local, and technical communities of talent across the regions. We achieve this through a variety of methods, from headhunting to attending and running events — both online and in person. Our approach is proactive rather than reactive, as we actively engage our growing candidate communities and represent our client’s brand to attract the best technology candidates in the local area and beyond.

Typically, going from request to on-site operation for an entire squad (6-strong development team) takes between 4-6 weeks.
