The challenge

Sunlight was looking to build a platform enabling more straightforward and transparent investment into individuals' personal development. They built a foundation using Ruby on Rails and EmberJS and deployed it to AWS. But due to market constraints, Sunlight struggled to find qualified candidates that met their criteria within their immediate network. As a result, their speed to market was impacted as they had to devote more time to finding the right team members.

Sunlight needed an experienced partner to help them build and validate their ideas faster. 

The solution

Moonshot's software development expertise was vital for building and successfully launching the platform and helping Sunlight to iterate on their hypothesis. Together we delivered a fast, stable, and secure platform, integrating outstanding features and flagship services. 

A personalized web platform to access learning resources

To guarantee access to a self-managed learning budget, Banking as a Service (BaaS) integrations provided an easy-to-use and transparent platform that enables users to create independent banking accounts and virtual pre-paid cards for specific transactions. This resulted in a financial architecture that facilitates access to any learning provider or event in the world. With these valuable features, users could manage their learning budgets and team skills more efficiently and effectively without complex financial processes or intermediaries.

Sunlight’s platform also offers an analytics dashboard that could seamlessly reflect team interests, spent budget, and overall cultivated learning skills to provide a curated and trackable experience.  

The team collaborated to improve Sunlight's User Experience workflows, resulting in an attractive and easy-to-use system that enables users and companies to quickly self-on board. The streamlined process allows anyone to open an account within two minutes and invite colleagues, team members, and even managers to try it out firsthand. This facilitated a positive word-of-mouth experience and encouraged widespread adoption of the platform.

The whole project was built following Test-Driven Development (TDD) methodology, where tests are written before the code is written. This methodology helped improve code quality, speed development, increase confidence, and facilitate collaboration between Sunlight and Moonshot teams.   

The results

With Moonshot as a tech partner, Sunlight successfully accelerated the development stage and launched a platform that fosters a culture that provides a constant learning experience. As a result, they managed to secure their first enterprise clients and raise US$2M in funding.

From the outset, it was clear that the team was committed to delivering a high-quality solution that would exceed expectations. They were diligent in their research, always seeking out the latest industry trends and best practices to inform their decisions.” - Ricardo Rodriguez, Carlos Delfino, Cofounder
