Why choose Surf for backend development

When you need the Surf backend team

Your company plans to develop a product from scratch & on a turnkey basis but lacks resources/expertise.

You need to set up your backend production processes in line with the best industry practices.

You need to scale the product due to business growth, ensuring stability for increased customers or a larger SKU count.

Testimonials

We have experience in backend development for large-scale projects for market leaders

“Surf has developed a great mobile app for us. It has significantly improved the quality of service for our premium customers. Customers can now manage deliveries and resolve support issues right in the mobile app. Thanks to this, the average bill and LTV increased and new customers came.”
Product Manager
“Surf has provided us with a video streaming service, giving our users access to more than 40 shows. We have implemented many additional features for users. The mobile app is developed with the Flutter framework. This helped us shorten the time to market and launch the product as quickly as possible. With its help, it was possible to reduce the development time by 30%. Surf has developed a platform with all the infrastructure: backend, CDN, and admin web interface to help manage content and monitor statistics.”
Roman Kolesnikov
Producer
“What I liked most about Surf was that it was not too lazy to make a demo from layouts and offered us a reasonable price. We did a really great job as a single product team.”
Head of Mobile
