How we work

We have daily standups at 9:45 EET.

The primary communications channel at the company is Slack, it connects team members, partners, clients, and our robots.

The workflow depends on the particular project and the stakeholders. We have real Scrum experience, but lately, many clients prefer a simple Trello board.

We demand properly specified tasks and stories from the stakeholders and from each other.

What will you learn

A wide-angle of the Software Development lifecycle: apart from coding, CI/CD, and basic code quality measures, you can learn here about requirement engineering, a dead-simple framework for writing good specs, and how not to fall into the trap of overengineering.
