How we work?

Our software engineering team will work in short, one- or two-week cycles providing you with quick validation results and recommended options for further direction. Each cycle will give you just enough information to choose the next step with certainty.

This approach will help you avoid waste of time and budget on projects and features that do not bring value or do not lead into the right direction – especially given that the direction may change rather swiftly depending on external conditions.

Our team consists of a software architect, product manager, scrum masters AKA project managers, developers, designers and support engineers.

Our services that make our approach possible are listed below:

Application Development

Not sure whether to implement from scratch, improve your existing applications or buy an off-the-shelf software? Feeling overburdened with the complex landscape of your legacy applications?

We’ll give you expert advice on your application landscape and help you with:

  • Assessment of your technology landscape including in-house built software
  • Performance optimization, UX improvement, code review and refactoring
  • Development of new custom applications, modules, websites and native apps
  • Integration of multiple existing systems
  • Process automation to reduce human error
  • Optimization of the development workflow (DevOps) for your teams
  • Knowledge transfer in the form of documents, intranet pages, or training sessions in person

Product Launch

No company wants to waste time and resources on developing a new product that ends up not finding the product-market fit. Many startups learn this truth the hard way, but every company, large or small, looks for smart ways to address this concern.

Our product team can help you run through a series of small iterations to ensure that:

  • Every high-impact product discovery hypothesis is validated against customer needs and business strategy
  • Data analysis framework is created and streamlined to arm your team with valuable insights for educated decision-making on further product roadmap
  • The process of product prototyping and development, gathering early feedback and managing clear, visually appealing product backlog is set up and streamlined
  • All your product teams are brought together to work towards common goals and objectives with synergy
  • The technical architecture and decisions are carefully validated and supported by our recommendations

Project Management

Want to make sure that your project moves along smoothly without wasting time and money?

Our experienced project managers will help you:

  • Develop a project/portfolio framework that provides transparency and clarity into project goals, roadmaps, status, dependencies and risks
  • Boost your teams' morale by organizing everyone around common goals, aspirations, and objectives
  • Build Agile development framework and process that focuses on results over rituals
  • Organize project-related onboarding for your new team members, knowledge management, and transition in case of staff changes
  • Help your management to summarize and present project milestones and outcomes


Can’t be there for your users when they need you to?

We can provide support for your software applications, websites, native apps, and cloud infrastructure:

  • Instant support for users and systems over email, Microsoft Teams, Slack during business hours
  • Prompt response in good English
  • Extended business hours across the globe
  • Professional, transparent ticket tracking via your corporate or our tools
  • Instant emergency availability for high-impact SLA
