Web App Design + Development, Team Augmentation

A Bold Step for an Established Brand

It’s a rare opportunity to help shape a 100+ year old organization in a dramatic way. When we began working with USA Cycling in a team augmentation capacity we sought out to provide them with a path forward to design and build scalable functional web products for their membership for the next century. In the process we developed a universal Design System, frontend component library, and standardized documentation as a base to engineer and refresh their software stack.


Our Role:

  • Design System Creation
  • Team Augmentation
  • Technical Documentation
  • Angular Component System

The Challenge

USA Cycling serves tens of thousands of monthly users with over a dozen distinct apps and software tools. Working with a team of internal and external developers, we were tasked to organize and lead the wave of next generation development for this well established brand.

The Process

As a team we researched every customer process, business need, and system that USA Cycling supported and identified the core workflows and processes common across applications.

Using that information we simultaneously created a frontend Design System to serve as a baseline of new UI components, and worked to map a cleaner and more performative data structure on which to build the next generation APIs.

After this, we were tasked to create and document a common set of frontend components based on our design system such that new interfaces could be more quickly assembled.
