Project Manager

From insightfulness to exquisiteness, RP proved to be an excellent partner on all aspects. Flexible work schemes, dedicated developers plus an advisory role indirectly.

Mohammed Moulay

We have used Remote Programmer for last 77 months (as on March 2014) and have always been impressed by the quality of the service they provide. We have a fairly complex website with more than 400 MySQL tables which requires a lot of work on an ongoing basis so we opted to use dedicated resources from them. It is a great value for money.

Lutfal and Champa and their team (Remote Programmer) in Kolkata have been working with me since 2003.

I personally went to India to visit Lutfal and his team in 2007 to start off our project and they made me feel very welcome. I was impressed by their set-up and professionalism. I would highly recommend Remote Programmer to anyone.
