What is an elastic squad?
A dedicated and experienced design team, ready to jump in and get your product off the ground.
A team of product design superstars
Carefully selected and empowered to work in their zone of genius, each elastic squad has a different mix of design experts.

This means you work with UX and UI designers as well as a design researcher and a design sprint facilitator who runs the process.
Embedded in your organisation
Whether you work with slack, email or do daily stand-ups, the squad will work as a part of your team and organisation, using your tools.

This doesn’t mean you need to babysit them. We help you define the level of autonomy and ways of working to best suit for your project.
Flexible and ready to start next week
The elastic squad is yours from as early as next week, to as long as you need them for. It's the perfect solution for overflow projects or when you don’t know exactly how long a project will take.

The best part is, that if your project changes, so can your squad.

FAQs

How does it work in practise?

Your dedicated product designer will work as a part of your team. Whether that means using your emails, online tools or attending your daily stand-ups. In the self-facilitated Elastic Squad option you set and manage the milestones and deliverable with your dedicated designer, and in the facilitated Elastic Squad our design facilitator will help you do that.

How is an Elastic Squad different from hiring a Contractor?

With the Elastic Squad your dedicated designer has access to support from the whole obodo team and community. We offer them support and trainings to make sure they're always on top of their game. In the facilitated design squad, they also have weekly access to a design facilitator who will help in defining the goals and deliverables that best serve your product.

Are you a design agency?

No. The Elastic Squad either becomes a part of your internal team or a self-functioning asset depending on your needs. One of the key differences to agencies is that our designers are dedicated to working with YOU and your organisation for the length of your contract. This is why we carefully match you with the right designer(s) to make sure that they're passionate about the product you are building.
