Lantern, a public benefit corporation, offers software and resources that guide family members through end-of-life planning, including the confusing maze of funeral plans, wills, last wishes, and logistics. In an effort to transform the way users interacted with their services, the Lantern team had a three-month deadline to rewrite its entire product. Every day they weren’t hiring, they were losing time as new releases introduced bugs in their core platform with every commit and deploy.
They needed to hire senior engineers quickly to take the product from MVP to V1 and accelerate their testing. Lantern tapped Andela for help.

Immediately after onboarding, Andela engineers wrote test code against Lantern’s core platform that minimized the bugs from deployment and commits and improved a critical application that took 39 seconds down to one second.

In all, with the help of Andela engineers, Lantern met its 3-month deadline, revolutionizing its ability to serve customers.
