Author Barry Finlay once said,“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing,” and the founders of Montecha have proven this to be true. After several years of steady growth, Montecha was founded in 2020, joining Pangea the very next year.

The head of engineering at a seed to series A startup they have previously worked with had an avalanche of praise for the company:

Montecha is a great partner, capable of meeting the needs of a fast-growing startup looking to fill a variety of technical roles. Management is extremely professional and responsive to boot. Could not recommend enough. ”

Team with a Great Altitude

Montecha is scaling new heights with their commitment to keeping their team happy and healthy. Their 21 full time employees average 2.6 years’ experience amongst themselves, and the company’s sky-high enthusiasm for being a place where the “happiest engineers in the world” can put their brilliance to use shows in their 95.45% overall employee retention rate.

Our culture is based on trust, support, motivation, and honesty. Employees have direct communication with the management, and that’s leading us to success.”

Junior javascript front-end developer at Montecha, Nikola, goes into more detail from an employee perspective:

“One of the things that I like the most is remote working where I can organise my time to be as productive as possible. Sometimes maybe my concentration isn't good enough in the morning, I get distracted, etc... so then I do something else, and then in the evening I finish all the tasks with ease.”

Their head of HR, Ivana, passionately describes the company’s attitude towards their staff:

“There are many reasons for me staying in this company, but the main ones are definitely a clear business goal and great care for employees. The owners of the company and I have the same business view and we believe that employees are the biggest and most important resource.

Tech Peaks Louder than Words

The happiest engineers do the best work, and Montecha makes their mark with their technical merit. Their main technology stack bristles with programming powerhouses, including JavaScript, React.js, React Native, Node.js, AWS, PostgreSQL, Python, Cypress, AWS Lambda, and Redux. The team acclimatizes to each new project with a combination of Agile, Kanban, and Scrum development methodologies, and they are best at tailoring backend, cloud computing, frontend, integrations, and large cloud infrastructures to your needs, particularly if you are looking for assistance with new product development, team augmentation, or support and maintenance.

Among their greatest summits is Go Remotely, a group of remote job posting boards designed to connect employers seeking remote employees with their perfect candidates. The company needed a web app that was both fast and reliable, allowing editors to post and update content as needed. Montecha held the ledge with a nimble technique, rising to the challenge with Next.js to optimize SEO performances, and developing the website to save on AWS 3 and serve on Cloud Front.
