New Product Development, Team Augmentation, and Project Handover are CI&T’s top engagement types. Speaking of engaging, CI&T’s work and projects are so impressive we had a hard time choosing just one to talk about.

A collaboration that stood out to us was CI&T’s partnership with VTEX in late 2019 which helped turn Carrefour Brazil into the country’s top digital grocer. CI&T helped VTEX embark on a total digital transformation by uniting the IT, operations, and business teams to create a migration roadmap within 5 months. This new digital commerce solution entailed engineers writing over 140,000 lines of code and taking on a new software engineering approach. What resulted was a richer customer experience using the app. Promotions were easier to access, the checkout process became smoother, and more customer payment methods were implemented, just to name a few benefits.
