The platform Professionals 4.0connects major corporations with talented contractors
is a subsidiary of Gazprom operating in the oil and gas industry. As of 2020, its market capitalization comprises around $20 billion, making it one of the most influential and capitalized companies in Europe.
Gazprom Neft decided to build a platform to connect talented individuals to corporate projects that would require their unique skills. Its implementation saw several independent teams, including CSSSR, working in close collaboration under quick release cycles.
We had to build the front-end of the platform that would enable a whole set of communications, technologies, processes, and services to facilitate the interaction between individuals and companies that may need their involvement.

Over 400 pages of duly executed paperwork submitted in the tender proposal. This included the grading of developers, hourly fees, managerial staff details, and annual plans, among other things.
The account manager established proprietary channels of communication acting as an executive hub between the customer and the company.
The account manager delivered recurring reporting and schedules for shorter periods based on Project Management data.

She ensured that all tasks within development phases are carried out timely or reasonably flexed.
The project manager suggested and supervised the transfer of some of the project’s logic from back-end to front-end to ensure the timely release of the features.
Our project manager used CSSSR’s in-house combination of Scrum and Kanban methodologies to ensure the timely delivery of quality products and worked in a shared space with the customer and other project teams.
Our systems analyst worked out the platform functionality requirements.
During the development process, they were working hand-by-hand with the client’s product manager helping to transform users’ stories into well-documented feature requests and technical specifications both for front-end and back-end parts of the project.
