Halo Lab Executive Interview

Valentine Boyev
Valentine Boyev
CEO
Visit Profile
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the organization.
We are a seasoned digital company that offers innovative solutions and services to businesses. With expertise in software development, IT consulting, web & app design, and marketing strategies, our team helps people all over the world enhance their online presence. As the CEO of Halo Lab, I’m responsible for leading this entire process and tracking the direction and management of our organization to ensure its long-term success.
What is the story behind starting this company?
The story began with a small group of designers who specialized in branding and graphic design. As our skills evolved, we ventured into different design disciplines. Over time, our team expanded, welcoming fresh talent and introducing new services, such as custom development and digital marketing, to offer comprehensive product solutions. From then until now, we’ve remained steadfast in our dedication, continuously pushing the boundaries of digital innovation.
What are your company’s business model–in house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
Halo Lab is a remote-first company, proud to have over 150 professionals on board  (including about 60 designers, 40 developers, and 20 managers). While most of our specialists are based in Ukraine, we also have talented employees from the UAE and Andorra. With such a pool of experienced specialists, we can easily form dedicated teams and work in different time zones. Although primarily Halo Lab is an in-house company, our collaborative approach extends beyond, as we actively engage with external vendors who bring fresh perspectives to the table.
How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?
As a design-driven company, Halo Lab differentiates itself by placing design at the forefront of our processes — this way, we empower clients to significantly increase their revenue and maintain a strong competitive position. While providing each customer with top-notch digital solutions, our team strives to understand their goals, challenges, struggles, and aspirations. We believe that every project, be it a “green” startup or a seasoned corporation, needs a unique approach to achieve desired outcomes and maximize the chances of success.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
We have the flexibility to adapt our services and meet the needs of companies in various niches, including technology, e-commerce, finance, healthcare, education, travel & hospitality, and much much more. Every partnership is precious and valuable to us, so we’re committed to delivering exceptional results for any kind of business — be it an IT management system, tutoring platform, or beauty salon.
Please share some of the services that you offer for which clients approach you the most for?
As a digital company, we provide an extensive array of services that meet the goals and needs of our clients, primarily focusing on design and development.

When it comes to design, clients often reach out to Halo Lab for:
  • UI/UX design;
  • Web & Mobile Design;
  • Graphic Design & Illustrations;
  • Logo & Branding.
As for development, clients frequently approach us for expertise in the:
  • Advanced technologies (ReactJS, Redux, GraphQL);
  • Large-scale CSS architectures (HTML5, CSS3, Sass, PostCSS);
  • Design systems (AtomicUI, Storybook);
  • Client-side performance (including AMP and PWA apps);
  • Cross-browser/cross-platform testing;
  • Automation QA (Cypress, Puppeteer, Jest, Selenium).
What is your customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
Customer satisfaction is of utmost importance for Halo Lab. To accurately meet their needs and requirements, our primary dos are active listening, open communication, tailored solutions, non-stop support, and feedback collecting. That’s how we get positive reviews and maintain a high average rating of 4.9 out of 5.0 on business feedback platforms. 
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients for catering to their queries and issues?
We understand the importance of timely assistance, effective communication, and robust support. That’s why our company offers multiple contact channels, including email, WhatsApp, and chat, ensuring that clients can effortlessly reach us through their preferred method.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
Our payment structures vary based on the project type. Design and development projects follow a Pay per Milestone approach, ensuring transparency and progress tracking. Branding projects, on the other hand, follow a fixed-cost model, offering clients upfront clarity on the total cost. Lastly, there is another option — monthly payments for dedicated teams. It’s widely popular among our clients as this payment method allows for smooth collaboration and efficient resource allocation.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
We accept projects that meet our basic budget requirement — $5,000+. This ensures that we can allocate the necessary resources, expertise, and attention to deliver quality results.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2022?
Due to the extensive assortment of services and payment models, the price range for the projects we worked on in 2022 varied significantly, with the minimum project size starting at $5,000 and the maximum exceeding $200,000. Each project is evaluated individually, considering such factors as features, functionalities, and specific client requirements.
Where do you see your company in the next 10 years?
In the next 10 years, we see our company as a trusted leader in the digital space, driving transformations, providing AI-related technologies, and empowering businesses to thrive more quickly and efficiently. Our team will likely focus on software engineering, create our own public products, and collaborate with enterprise clients across various industries. We believe that our dedication to innovation, customer-centricity, and excellence will propel us toward continued success, making Halo Lab the go-to partner for people from every part of the world.
