So many different possibilities

Make the right choice quickly

The name 'GoBear' comes from the phrase 'Go bare or go home'. This pun reflects GoBear’s disruptive approach to the financial sector as it allows consumers to compare financial products and insurances at the touch of a button. Since 2015, GoBear has expanded to six Asian countries with headquarters in Singapore. GoBear will continue to expand across Asia in 2018.

Our challenge

How do you ensure that consumers can compare hundreds of financial products and insurances easily, quickly and reliably when the platform has to make complex calculations and the data has to be 100% accurate? How do you ensure that the enormous amounts of data are shown quickly and smoothly? How do you ensure that multiple Scrum teams work on a Product Backlog and that the functionalities and improvements are scalable and immediately available for use in several countries?

The result

GoBear has provided more than 15 million users with advice and processes two million monthly visits. It compared more than 2700 prices and products in six financial categories (travel, car and health insurances, credit cards, loans and mortgages loans).

  • In 2016, GoBear topped the ThinkwithGoogle list of comparison sites in APAC.
  • In 2017 GoBear Thailand received the prestigious 'Best Startup Award' from NTCC.

Our approach

rb2 provided the complete development and technical support at every stage of the development process.

  • In the exploration phase we facilitated cross-functional Scrum teams that collaborated seamlessly with GoBear for consultancy and development including product design, development and constant product improvement.
  • In the current expansion phase, we ensure that the architecture and tech stack remain up-to-date so that the development process stays extremely scalable and the productivity of the Scrum teams continues to increase, allowing GoBear to build a strong presence in Asia.

Activities

From lunching together and celebrating a birthday to the annual tradition of our winter sports trip. It seems obvious, but we have turned it into our culture. We do a lot together and have a lot of fun.
