Our values

One team policy

Good understanding and sync between team members is the essence of our cooperation with clients. By “one team policy” we mean reaching levels of transparency and communication that eliminate the boundaries between the client and the project team. From day one, we share every resource connected with product development: code repositories, timesheets, budget flow, etc. Apart from that, we keep the communication open – anyone on the team can join the conversation in the development process and contribute to its final result. To ensure the whole collaboration runs smoothly, we rely on dedicated tools, including Atlassian, Google Suite or Slack.

400+ ACCOMPLISHED PROJECTS
