What if I don’t have a developer to install KISSmetrics?

Since a lot of KISSmetrics customers are marketers and product managers, sometimes it can be difficult for them to obtain a developer or in-house engineering time to set up KISSmetrics.

And every day that passes is another day without the valuable insights KISSmetrics can give your business. What are you to do?

Well, luckily, there is an awesome company called Matchist that solves problems just like this one!

Matchist is a service that matches you with the top 3 developers they think will best fit your project. Whether you are developing a mobile app or a SaaS website, Matchist probably has the right developer ready to begin grinding away on your project immediately.

Here are some of the skills that Matchist can provide you with:

  • Android
  • AppCelerator/Titanium
  • C# and C++
  • CSS
  • HTML5
  • iOS
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • PHP
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • Windows Phone

And this isn’t nearly an exhaustive list. They offer a whole host of other highly specialized skills that can be found here:

How is Matchist different from Elance or Odesk?

While I have never used Elance, I am a huge fan of Odesk. However, when it comes to sourcing developers, my experience has been that there are times when the process could be a bit smoother.

The main difference is that Matchist doesn’t charge you until your project is completed. Anyone who has used similar services in the past knows that months of payments can go through before you find out you have hired a dud.

Matchist’s entire goal is to simplify your relationship with a freelance developer so you can get cracking on making awesome software or tackling technical challenges with fewer headaches.

So how do I get started with a KISSmetrics developer?

Matchist has created a webpage where you can sign up for a KISSmetrics developer here:

find km dev

All you need to do is submit your name, email address, and how urgently you need KISSmetrics installed, and they will be on the case ASAP.

The beauty of using Matchist to implement KISSmetrics is that they will “spec out” the entire project for you. That way, the developer knows exactly what to expect from the project and you don’t have to worry about communication slip-ups on your part (which tend to be the main cause of project hiccups).

Naturally, KISSmetrics can provide developers with whatever resources they need (and developers love our APIs). So please don’t be shy – feel free to contact us.

  1. We tried Matchist a few months ago. It sounded awesome and really promising, but we were only matched with 1 developer who stopped communicating right after we gave them all the login credentials to the site. :/ Not the best experience.

      Hi Jen,

      I’m sorry that happened with you. Our approach is to have the best developers. To do that, the budget for your project has to be realistic with the project’s scope. In your case, there was a lack of interest due to the size of the scope and budget being unrealistic (I believe we emailed about this).



  2. Too bad it doesn’t allow Canadian Developers in! =(

      Hi Steve,

      We’re working on a way to get Canadian developers on board. This is more of a legal issue with contracts not being enforceable overseas. While other outsourcing sites ignore this issue, we aim to provide the highest quality of service so it’s something we need to figure out.
