Mobli Media - Ciklum

Mobli Media

SITUATION

Mobli Media, Inc. develops mobile applications for photo sharing. Founded in 2011, it has raised to date more than $90M. With offices in Tel Aviv and New York, Mobli Media Inc.’s prominent investors are Kenges Rakishev, Carlos Slim with America Movil and Leonardo DiCaprio.

In 2014 the Mobli team decided to develop a new product not related to photo and video sharing and started to look for a technology partner in Ukraine.  

 

SOLUTION

Ciklum has provided Mobli its Extended Team solution. Accordingly, Mobli Media has built a team in Ukraine as an extension of its own Israeli development team. This allowed the core team to concentrate on product development without gearing down on developing features to the already successful Mobli social application.

Ukraine was chosen as an ideal combination of talented technical resources, geographical proximity to Tel Aviv and similar time zone.

 

RESULT

  • Decreased by 20% the cost of ownership and streamlining of management
  • Saved 25% with separation of efforts and resources between different product lines
  • Team in Ukraine takes care of the development and maintenance of the main Mobli application
  • Ciklum is responsible for the team support and retention in Kiev – recruitment, offices, administration.
