Metalsmart was founded in response to the issue of consumers overpaying for physical gold and silver. As a US-based company, their mission was to create a platform similar to the concept of ‘Lending Tree,’ but tailored for the precious metals market.
Their main goal is to empower consumers by enabling a clear evaluation of dealer quotes, ensuring equitable pricing for their acquisitions.
Through the adoption of their platform, consumers have the potential to collectively save an estimated of four to five billion dollars per year, stemming from decreased product markups.
Why does Metalsmart choose us?
“The Howdy team is my team! I have never worked with such a motivated team of near-shore engineers in my many years building tech companies. We work together as partners to build and deploy the best product we can. They have provided strong input into the product and a roadmap.”
“I was really impressed by Howdy engineers’ backgrounds, their communication skills, and passion for building things. I quickly envisioned a high-functioning pizza team and that is exactly what I got.”
“The Howdy team are closer in time zones so our work hours largely overlapped. No late nights or early mornings managing the engineering team! Second, their communication skills are top-rate. There have been no miscommunications nor struggles to understand each other. What a time saver! Third, my team took immediate ownership of our project, as if they were actual owners. They added value by offering useful suggestions instead of just doing what was specified. They worked like bulldogs, even off-hours, and helped me build a product earlier and better than I planned.” – Steve Pelletier, Founder of Metalsmart
What’re Howdy developers say about working with Metalsmart
“Trust is a two-way street. Metalsmart trusts Howdy’s talent, and we trust Metalsmart’s management. As engineers, we’ve felt like we belong since day one — that we are and will be a part of this great endeavor. Trust transforms into ownership, and ownership transforms into positive and overwhelming results. When you feel that your opinion is accounted for, that your ideas matter, the sky’s the limit. You have to trust your people if you want customers to trust your business. Love to the Metalsmart family.”- Julian, Software Developer
