Eugene Lisovskiy, a serial entrepreneur, launched Level Up Basket in January 2020 in New York. His app aimed to help 450 million basketball players worldwide improve their skills through gamification, coaching, and community. With rapid product development, the business grew with consumers, clubs, and businesses. However, Eugene struggled with the speed and scale of development and needed a strong technical partner to help him release stable versions every month and have an efficient management process.
Eugene needed to build a technical team quickly to take Level Up Basket to the next level. He had a plan for expansion and didn’t want to spend months searching the internet, filtering resumes, vetting skills, etc. He needed people to join the business as soon as possible.
Eugene worked with Skipp's Talent Team to build a profile of what Level Up Basket needed. They designed a team structure led by a Project Manager and included two mobile developers responsible for flutter development and one backend engineer experienced in [ASP.NET](http://asp.net/) and C#. Skipp's team worked with Level Up Basket's core development team, creating a backlog of tasks to solve immediately. The team planned two-week sprints, a demo of their work, and monthly stable releases. We helped create new functions like 'scoring machine,' 'sharing results with mates,' and 'cool onboarding'.
🤹 Tech stack used
Level Up Basket's has grown at lightspeed with Skipp's team on board. They have helped the app provide a beautiful interface and powerful tools for individual coaches, clubs, academies, clinics, camps, and leagues. The app now has hundreds of basketball drills and workouts created by professional coaches that have helped basketball players level up their game.
