About the Client

Our client is Baristar, an Australian startup in the hospitality industry. The Baristar app aims to provide businesses with easy access to hospitality staff on demand, while offering independent contractors the flexibility to engage in contract gigs and embrace a more flexible work lifestyle. The application’s rating system enables businesses and workers to provide feedback, promoting transparency, accountability, and service improvement.


“Because of COVID-19 people have figured they prefer to have flexibility in work so we are providing the opportunity for workers to be self-employed and utilize their skills in the hospitality industry.”
Nenad Nesh Kandic, co-founder of Baristar


Amidst the impact of COVID-19, workers recognized the value of flexibility, desiring the freedom to choose their work hours. As businesses recovered from the pandemic, they too realized the fluctuating need for workers, particularly during seasonal variations. The challenge of finding skilled and reliable employees extends beyond industries, posing a global concern.


Project Goals

The client entrusted us with their vision, and we composed a dedicated team of six skilled professionals to develop their application from the ground up. Through business analysis, market research, and collaborative efforts, we created a visually appealing and user-friendly application. Our mobile development and backend teams ensured optimal performance, while thorough quality assurance measures guaranteed reliability.

Business Requirements

Our team meticulously conducted an in-depth analysis of the client’s needs, collaborating closely with co-founders to gather comprehensive business requirements for the application. Leveraging our expertise in business analysis, we translated the gathered insights into clear and concise business requirements documentation, outlining the application’s key features, data flows, system integrations, and performance metrics. This meticulous process ensured alignment between the client’s vision and our development team, facilitating a smooth and successful application development journey.


Before embarking on the design and application development for our Australian client, we conducted thorough research to ensure a tailored approach. This involved understanding the specific needs, preferences, and expectations of the Australian market. By conducting this research, we aimed to deliver a solution that resonates with the local user base, meets regulatory requirements, and aligns with industry trends, ultimately enhancing user satisfaction and project success.

Application Design

The application’s design incorporates modern UI/UX principles, striking a balance between aesthetics and functionality. Our iterative approach allowed us to gather timely feedback, iterate on design elements, and deliver a visually appealing and user-friendly interface.


Mobile Development

Our team successfully developed mobile applications for both iOS and Android platforms. These applications provide users with a seamless and user-friendly experience, empowering them to access the services anytime, anywhere, right from their mobile devices.


The backend team proactively stayed ahead of mobile development, ensuring seamless coordination and independent progress for the mobile teams. With a robust and scalable backend infrastructure, our mobile applications leverage its capabilities to deliver optimal performance and functionality. This shared backend serves as the backbone for both our mobile applications, enabling consistent and reliable experiences across platforms. By creating comprehensive documentation, the backend team facilitated easier and faster development for the mobile teams, providing them with clear guidelines, API references, and examples.

Quality Assurance

Prior to release, we engaged a dedicated QA team to ensure thorough testing. Additionally, clients participated in bi-weekly testing sessions, providing valuable feedback. The comprehensive test coverage guarantees the reliability and quality of the entire application.



Our team successfully delivered the project within the agreed timeframe of 5 months, demonstrating our commitment to meeting project deadlines. We achieved all project objectives within the defined scope, ensuring that the developed application met the client’s requirements and expectations.
