A good word

Binnerup Consult

The project have been a great co-operation, where Shakuro clearly have had an interest in the quality of the final product, rather than an interest in simply going for the customers (our) initial idea of things.

We are already moving forward to the next project with Shakuro, and I am sure that this is not the last project we have done together.

Skatic

Working with Shakuro was and still is a delight. Their capabilities far surpass that of any other developers that I worked with. I believe the number of hours they have so far put in the project is testament to the success of this partnership.

If you are looking for a team to handle the toughest of projects and tasks then look no further, The Shakuro Gurus are who you need.

It's very rare to A) find talented developers, and B) to find people willing to put in the additional effort and be pro-active rather than just re-active.

To be honest, there's a part of me that doesn't want to give Vlad and Shakuro a review because they'll be flooded with employment requests, but to be fair as they have been to me, I'll provide my honest thoughts. I've been working with Shakuro for almost 9 months now and cannot fault them, they're responsive, have an active role in the development process, and they are very thorough.

Vlad is a star, he makes sure he understands you perfectly before he starts with a good amount of questions, which means you always get what you want. I aim to keep Shakuro on my payroll for many months to come, in fact, I only closed this job as I gave Vlad a pay-rise as he has become so valuable. I personally endorse Shakuro and if you have any questions relating to them please feel free to contact me using odesk.

Sasha, Michael and Kostya makes the best team I've ever worked with on ODesk. The quality of work produced by Sasha was absolutely fantastic. They helped us a great deal in delivering on very strict deadlines. They also supported us for our offline events. I would recommend these guys in a heart beat.

First time using Shakuro. EXCELLENT service and communication. Great company to work with - so happy to find a reliable programmer that can actually fix issues without any hassle... well done guys.

American Financial Capital Group

A project that was promised to take a few months actually took over 2.5 years! There were hundreds of bugs to fix. That said, they were honorable and kept working on the project long after all project monies were paid out. That is rare to see, so I give Dimy and Shakuro credit for eventually completing the project when they could have abandoned us.

We've had two applications made by Shakuro. In both cases they were very professional and didn't only did the project as described, but was also pro-active and very helpful with suggestions to improve the products.


My best recommendations for Shakuro, who we will definetly trust for our future projects as well.

Dear Kostya,

We are delighted with the final outcome of the iOS Application we contracted you and your team at Shakuro to develop. I was initially hesitant to send this project overseas and have to deal with any miss communications. I needn’t had worried. Dmitry and yourself were always prompt and easy to get along with. While our App was not technically difficult it is in a very specialized industry that Im sure before this project you had little knowledge of. Your team was able to easily interpret my design and get the look and feel I was after. You also pointed out some good suggestions while easily dealing with at sometimes a troublesome data source as provided by us. We are now looking at a new larger project we can start with Shakuro and I would happily recommend your services to anyone else.

Regards
David Reichard

I think you guys were fantastic! You guys designed the website beautifully, turned the comments I had and stuck to the initial indicated budget. I couldn't be happier.

Alex Cristia

It has been a great pleasure working with Shakuro and Dmitry on our unusual iOS application. They made sure to understand the precise requirements, and kept an outstanding communication throughout. They were very flexible before, during, and after intermediate app test, being open to accommodate my suggestions and requests. Moreover, they were proactive, doing the research and providing suggestions for aspects on which the best design was uncertain. The app works exactly as needed (and better than initially hoped), the code is lean and clear, and they have made sure that we can parametrize our app to our taste. We look forward to working with Shakuro again.

Taras Kravtchouk

Great team that really understands what product development is all about.

Binnerup Consult

Vladimir (Windows Phone developer from Shakuro) have developed our application offering on Windows Phone along with the design team at Shakuro, and we have one again been very happy with the commitment of the Shakuro team, and the quality of work provided.

The scope of the project was by us as a customer changed several times, and therefore the original estimations surely cannot be taken into account - it is based on this difficult for us to rate the ability to meet deadlines, but what we know is that the commitment from the Shakuro team have never lacked anything.

Windows Phone as a platform have for us been difficult economy wise, but considering the high ratings and top listing positions of our application, including several features in the store, this is something we see as a general trend on the platform, and something that is not in any way related to the quality of work done. This is at the same time also the only reason that we are not keeping Vladimir on the project full time, but instead with regrets have to revert to hire him in for updates only.

All in all, Vladimir is a safe source for your next Windows Phone project!

Ramy Al Kadhi

The Shakuro team are not only excellent developers, but are strong project task managers and work with you in a creative capacity to bring the most out of your app, both in functionality and in design.

CGHUB

We have been extremely pleased with our collaboration with Shakuro throughout the development of CGHUB.com and look forward to many more projects together. After several failed attempts by other developers, Shakuro came through when we were ready to give up on CGHUB. Working with them is a pleasure, they have great ideas, are easy to work with, and always exceed our expectations regardless of how big or small the task at hand. Without a doubt Shakuro is one of the most professional, dedicated, and talented group of individuals we have ever had the pleasure of working with.

We have been working with Shakuro since april 2008, and eversince we are truly convinced that Shakuro offers everything we required, even more... They are very skilled, punctual, always available, and not only do they finish the job as required, the Shakuro developers even think ahead and take our projects to a higher level.

Their commitment to our project even seems bigger than ours. As for us, we are convinced there's no better team to work with!

Lund Research Ltd.

Very much enjoyed working on this project with Shakuro. It should be noted that this project also included Lera and Edward from Shakuro.

We were very impressed with the design they developed for us which was unique and imaginative based on our initial diagrams.

Communication was constant and promptly with regular updates and analysis of the project at each stage. There were sometimes confusions in explanation but these were always enthusiastically worked through with Shakuro and we were very impressed overall.

They were able to interpret our specification and provide excellent functionality and making the site go live was made very simple and completely painless.

We look forward to working with them in the near future on further projects. We definitely recommend them.

Great work, great communication, completely satisfied.

Super job by Dmitriy and Shakuro for completing this difficult iPhone project after a previous developer here in the USA bailed out on the job halfway.

Bowers Technologies

Once again Dmitriy has done an excellent job on our iPhone app development work. Nice work!

Bowers Technologies

Dmitriy did an incredible job fixing an iPhone app that another developer could not complete. He was able to quickly identify the issues and worked patiently with with us to resolve them all.

Daniel Seifert

Dmitriy delivered outstanding work in this project. He was very responsive and provided valuable feedback to our specification. The result of his work was exactly what we wanted and it was finished earlier than estimated. If (when) we do another iPhone project, Dmitriy will be our first choice.

Amazing provider

Pleasant experience working with Dmitriy. Exellent skills, very cooperative and consistent with the project. Also very responsible and communicative. Overall 5 stars.

Binnerup Consult

Once again, it have been an absolute pleasure to work with Alex and the whole team at Shakuro. The quality of the work proced is second to none, and Alex has a very good attention to the details that may others often miss. I would recommend Shakuro to anyone, as the only thing I would like improved is for them to cover more fields so that we can move additional projects their way.

Binnerup Consult

It was great to work with Shakuro team on this project. They were very good at reading and understanding the documentation created for the project, and have been great on making their own suggestions to the project, and implementing them very well.

We are already moving forward to the next project with Shakuro, and I am sure that this is not the last project we have done together.

Ben Johnson

Great work. Will work with again. Paid attention to detail and fixed any known issues.

OnePixelDown

Development of our website didn't work out right away, initially it was commissioned to a different development agency which made us loose time and efforts. However when we recommissioned the job to Shakuro things started to look up right away with results showing in just couple of weeks. The team was always switched on, making the whole process easy and enjoyable. Constant updates and follow ups from Shakuro gave confidence and reassurance that the work is in progress and whatever is needed is being done. And finally the end product exceeded our expectations and met out requirements. We are another satisfied customer, with nothing but the good things to say about Shakuro and its team. Will definitely work together again, that is if Shakuro would have time for us :) Thank you!

ISPdone

Shakuro was outstanding! They was on time, under budget, and produced an application that far exceeded my expectations. Their English skills were not perfect but they did not interfere with the project. They are highly productive and many times bugs were addressed in minutes. Their ideas for usability and architecture were money saving and made for a much more usable application. We had a specific set of goals for the project but little architecture guidance. Shakuro filled in all the blanks and the finished app is polished, professional, clean, and fast. They added features they knew would be useful even before we asked for them. Many features they added I would have never thought of. We will be using Shakuro again!

Advanced Industrial Design, Inc

Kostya has been a thorough Account Manager and is very timely with questions and feedback. We are continuing with Kostya and his associates to build our site.

Lund Research Ltd.

We have been very impressed with this project undertaken by Shakuro. We have received a website that has exceeded our expectations with features we thought would cost much more than they did. What we have received for the money has been quite amazing. As we have found on previous projects, communication was immediate, excellent and patient with any issues resolved quickly and efficiently without any fuss. We hope to keep working with the Shakuro team on future projects.

Wonder Haiku Worlds

Shakuro team did an excellent job bringing up our website. They were always responsive and caught onto ideas with incredible speed and accuracy. They are friendly, efficient, technically excellent engineers, who are very serious and sincere about their work. I recommend them whole-heartedly for your web projects. They are one of the few PHP developers using a framework like Cake PHP, which is an intelligent choice.

Alex Pinkster

Great worker, very experienced, honest! Any time I will need anything I will go to him.

Tiger Tiger marketing group

A reliable, honest and high quality developer. Would gladly hire again.

Saw computing

Great experience working with Kostya. The first code he developed could not work because of a restriction on our web hosting and he identified and resolved it in less than 20 minutes.

Perfect Homestay

As always, better than the requirements. Superb communication and project management. Excellent work ethics. Always available with a solution for all needs. Am hiring him right now for my next project before one of you can get him.

Cornerstone Tower

Wow, under budget, performed beyond expectation, completed far ahead of schedule. What else can I say!

Oleg is part of Shakuro. There is no better team on Odesk.

Lund Research Ltd.

We are always very pleased with Alexey's (and Shakuro's) work which is always to a very high standard. This was a small project that nonetheless was treated to the usual excellent communication and thoughtful planning.

Bold Type Media LLC

Alex did a great job on my iphone app. It took 2 days for approval from Apple and within 4 days I had reached my return on investment. I look forward to work with him again.

Great team (Shakuro) effort. Finished on time. Would be glad to work with them again. Great job guys!

Outstanding coder. I just wish he had more hours!

Perfect Homestay

Work completed successfully - on schedule - no fuss - he is part of a team I use for all my projects which always gets things done as I want - which always communicates efectively. Will continue to use.

CGHUB

Roman is a highly skilled graphic designer who knows how to make a project look professional and graphically appealing at the same time. It has been a pleasure to work with him, and no job is too big for his abilities. He creates amazing UI's that are streamlined and highly efficient. If you want your project to look great, Roman is highly recommended and we are sure that you will be glad you have him on your team. We are looking forward to working with him again soon!

Perfect Homestay

Methodical, logical, planned and communicative. Has now built a great team around him. If it can't be done, he will figure out a way it can. Full marks again Kostya. Thank you for your continued commitment . You deserve great rewards for your attitude and work.

Hawaiiart

Oleg and the Shakuro team continue to deliver exceptional work better then anyone else I have worked with on odesk.

Keith Hackbartrh

Projects were completed as requested. I would definitely recommend Kostya and the whole team.

AmeriWood

Excellent team project management, communication and fantastic code. Very happy with the work, and feedback. No-stress management.

Ben Johnson

Alexey did a great job. Suggested improvements for previous developers code. Clean, simple GUI, added little features not originally asked for. All of these warrant a 5 rating. Working with this developer again.

Perfect Homestay

This is my first opportunity to work with kostya. He showed great interest in the project from the start, which did not lessen. His commitment and communication are impeccable. He is always there, always ready to answer in a polite and patient manner and has built my database from the ground up - contributing sound, practical and creative advice. It could now have happened as it did without him. This relationship will continue.

Iterative Media

Sergey is one of the best developers I've ever worked with and I've worked with something like 100 on odesk.

Norcal Prep Scores

Always available. Great quality. Very cooperative and maintained communication in planning and executing. Thanks for the great work.

I think Yuriy dreams in PHP. Another exceptional member of the Shakuro team.

Thank you Roman. You did a great job, and I am looking forward to working with you again. Regards,

Kostya is a fantastic project manager who has resources always ready to take on all types of tasks, from rapid new development to maintenance. His company Shakuro is full of talented developers who are of the finest world-class technical proficiency in web technologies, and they are dedicated to their customers satisfaction as a team. They have maintained my websites for 2 years, and always provide the most cost-effective solutions to problem, but without sacrificing quality. They don't believe in overcharging or filling up time according to initial estimates. They will do it for less if it takes less time. This type of honesty and sincerity is rare and commendable. They are loyal to their customers and in fact they have provided me the same initial rate since the time I started working with them, which I really appreciate.

Bowers Technologies

Our company's first iPhone app launch was a tremedous success due entirely to the professionalism and expertise of Dmitriy at Shakuro. He was able to understand our needs and then translate that into a quality product. Our app was approved in half the time quoted by Apple. The app itself is extremely small and very efficient code. We are a few days into sales without a single report of a crash or problem with the app. Dmitriy was also able to think outside the box to come up with solutions when we were presented with a roadblock during development. He is able to communicate clearly. We will definately be using Dmitriy again in our upcoming development projects.

Vlad Boerean

Thank you Kostya. Great job and looking forward to many more. Regards, Vlad

CGHUB

Kostya is a natural leader and really takes charge of his projects. He puts the buyers mind at ease, knowing that he is on the job helps make life much easier due to his highly ethical approach to business. You can trust Kostya with your project and know that he will do the best job possible to make sure it is a success. He won't quit until it is perfect and always there to support his work long after the assignment is complete.

Highly recommended!

CGHUB

Sergey is one of the most talented programmers that we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Fast, friendly, and efficient, he always exceeds our expectations.
