Today, I’m going to answer a question from Moctar, a startup founder who has already developed the first version of his payment solution.

His question is: “We need to switch from one technical team to another, where should we start?”

Before answering this question, let’s add a bit of context.

The freelancer Moctar hired to develop the first version is not available anymore, so Moctar needs to switch to another freelancer or build his own team.

Unfortunately, this situation is quite common, so every startup founder should be prepared to overcome it.

The best way to do that is to gather all the technical information so that we can define which type of profile we need. Having this technical information will also be very useful for the future developer since he’ll understand quickly how the application works on a technical level.

So, to answer Moctar’s question, I’ve created a list of things you should ask a leaving developer.
