Helping solarisBank build the first Banking-as-a-Platform – €100m raised in 3 years

€100m raised in 3 years receiving rounds from Arvato, BBVA, Visa and Lakestar

solarisBank turned to Netguru to build a unique Banking-as-a-Platform that could be compared to Amazon’s AWS for digital banking. It allows you to build your own bank using various ‘bricks’ provided by solarisBank and opens up API access to major players.
And this is what I appreciate in working with Netguru: that you take the ownership, that you're experienced, and that we can rely on you.

How we work?

  1. Ruby on Rails is perfect for producing high-quality code very quickly – if you want your project to be ready for a deadline or hit the market fast, Ruby is the way to go.

  2. Developing a software project from scratch can be a long process, but Ruby on Rails allows you to design MVPs quickly thanks to dozens of ready-made libraries.

  3. The Ruby community has created a rich repository of libraries, called gems – gems are ready-made solutions and make development much easier and faster.

  4. RoR has been battle-tested by many developers in commercial projects – it can deliver high-quality large scale projects fast.


Ruby on Rails consulting and development team

Our Ruby on Rails web developers deliver source code that is efficient, concise, readable, maintainable, and clean. Netguru can help you with solutions for web services and web-based apps.

We build scalable solutions and implement new functionalities within your existing web app or help with optimization.

Our Ruby on Rails consulting team, together with our Rails app developers, build web applications in a short time to help you launch your MVP as soon as possible.

Our methodology

A professional team of external developers should be Agile. At Netguru, we strive to be completely transparent with clients – we share our style guide, our internal documentation, and code review practices because we believe in sharing our knowledge and building trust.

The highest standard in tools and practices

We’ve put together a list of some of the best tools we use at Netguru:

  • Github: it contains our code repositories. We take advantage of all its powers and have made Git our default distributed version control system.
  • Circle CI: it’s our default continuous integration tool. It tests all new changes to the code and, depending on results, deploys them to the staging or production environment. It also performs security checks.
  • Jira: our default task and issue tracker, perfectly crafted for Agile needs.
  • Rollbar: we strive to maintain exceptionally high code quality, but sometimes something unexpected happens on the server. To catch such exceptions, we use Rollbar. It tracks errors so that we can reproduce them and quickly fix them.
  • CodeClimate: it's our default choice for maintaining code quality. It measures our code against various metrics such as simplicity and code coverage
  • Slack: it’s our go-to communication tool, so it was only natural to try and get more out of it. We have connected notifications from many other tools, and now, we know immediately when something happens on production servers (notification emails serve as a backup).
  • Security: in our projects, we use bundler-audit and brakeman gems by default to spot all security issues as fast as possible (security checks are performed each time in CircleCI). It’s really important to keep all libraries up to date and spot all potential security pitfalls.

The hidden value of a good Ruby on Rails team

Measuring the value of such tools in US dollars is actually an easy task – here are some calculations:

  • Github
    Git repository hosting service
    Keeps code organized and helps with developer resource sharing
  • CircleCI
    Continuous Integration
    Test and deploy applications easier

Leverage highly experienced Ruby on Rails developers

It often doesn't make sense to invest in your own team of developers before you even have a proof of concept for your product – working with an external team is the cheaper option.

You don’t have to provide office space, equipment, and testing equipment – none of the material elements necessary for building an app. You can also forget about recruitment costs. You don’t need to worry about software and a test infrastructure. You can skip trying to gather the exact set of skills necessary for your project – a good agency will also offer DevOps, backend and frontend development, UI and UX design, as well as product and graphic design.

How can Ruby on Rails consulting help my business grow?


Here are the answers to some of the most common questions asked by our clients:
Why is Ruby on Rails good for quick development?

Ruby is an interpreted, high-level, general-purpose programming language that is dynamically typed and utilizes metaprogramming to create fully functional applications and leverages the power of 'gems'.

Ruby on Rails is an open-source web application development framework based on the Model-View-Controller architecture. It enables the fast deployment of complex projects as well as ongoing maintenance and support.

Combining these two things allows you to effortlessly create full applications in just a few lines of code.

How can Ruby on Rails help with prototyping and MVPs?

An MVP is a critical milestone in modern digital product development.

Enterprises often struggle to develop prototypes quickly due:

  • Team restrains
  • Siloed processes
  • Lack of data

It's easy to delay launching new products or internal tools because of these restrictions.

Ruby on Rails was made to kickstart beautiful and fully functional MVPs fast due to the pre-built functionalities it offers called 'gems' in addition to it being a highly-readable language, almost like reading normal English.

Combining a highly experienced team with the above factors lets any business prototype and diversify their product range fast.

Why should I optimize my existing Ruby application?

The basic aim behind refactoring is to fix code problems but keep the current functionality of your application.

Refactoring makes the code more readable to the team working on it. It’s then easier – and cheaper – for them to continue developing and maintaining your product.

A ‘refactor’ means a single change in the code. To make or do a refactor means to introduce a particular fix which, in accordance with the above definition, enhances the code’s quality.

Here are some extra reasons to do it, if you weren’t convinced already:

1. Scout’s Rule

If you think about it, making errors when coding is inevitable. Maybe there are geniuses out there who always write clean and flawless code, but if so, they are rare. No matter how much experience they have, you can’t expect superhuman performance from your team, and you have to accept that their mistakes will be part and parcel of the process of developing a software solution.

Just like refactoring, fixing those mistakes is a part of the process.

If you see a code fragment that could have been written better, improve it. Immediately. If you don’t do it often enough, your product will suffer as current risks lead to future problems.

2. Improved Understanding of the Product

Refactoring helps developers understand how the product works and what it’s supposed to do.

They are more engaged in the project, can easily delegate tasks to other developers (who should now have no trouble reading and working with more understandable code), and can take full advantage of others’ work thanks to, for instance, clearer methods. It’s best to put everything a developer needs to know into the code, so comments and remembering a lot of information become unnecessary.

3. Better Information Architecture

Clean code means that developers can easily see which fragments hold the most business value.

Actually, clean code means developers can more easily spot separate elements in the code. You might think it should be obvious from the beginning which functionalities will matter most, but that’s a fallacy. It’s something you need to learn anew for every product you work on because every product is different.

4. Lowering Costs

Projects get really expensive when you need to fix legacy code months or years down the line.

With regular refactoring, developers find bugs more easily, which means a smaller QA budget and fewer hours spent by developers on scrutinizing the code. There will be no need to constantly go back and fix something that has become a blocker. By preventing problems from occurring rather than reacting to them, you will be able to achieve faster development. And obviously, this work is the most expensive part of building a digital product.
