We don’t have frontend or backend devs. We just have programmers, and damn good ones.
We’re great at programming, but we’re not great at guessing how long it will take—nobody is. So we don’t.
Stacking up features and selling them for a fee doesn’t work. We block out time and give you our absolute best work. Which is all we have to give.
Context switching kills productivity, so each of our programmers immerses in one project at a time, normally in teams of two.
We dedicate a day of the week to honing our skills and giving back to our community via open-source and pro-bono projects.
🤷 That’s it.
We love the Agile Manifesto, but we don’t always love what Agile has become. We’ll pass on Story Points and Velocity, and stay focused on our work.
Meetings are costly, disruptive, tend to beget more meetings, and can often be averted with a thoughtful email or chat message.
Our team has been geographically distributed since the beginning, but we show up regularly at the (virtual) office just like an in-person team.
Sometimes a relationship has run its course, so let’s be grownups about it. Our MSA allows for mutual termination, with or without cause.
Chances are, we won’t be your dev team forever, so right from the start we are thinking about how to transition our work to its next owner.
