Hackney Council

Hackney council deliver public services to the London borough of Hackney

Hackney Council are one of London's largest councils. Serving the people of Hackney, they have been embracing tech as a way to reduce costs and serve more people in a better way.

Rails development and maintanence

Hackney had a Rails application that was in beta that needed some small improvements made to it based on user feedback.

The work was planned to take roughly 1 sprint (2 weeks) and we wanted to get as many improvements made as possible.

To faciliate this we worked on-site, beside the users of the system, to make sure feedback loops were tight and communication was efficient.

We delivered the agreed improvements and more within the timeframe.
