We use Scrum, Agile, and Lean Principles to develop and deliver real business value for startups and multinational companies, no matter where they are in the product life cycle.
Every step of the way
No matter where you are in the product lifecycle, we can jump in to accompany and guide you through every step anywhere from inception all the way to ongoing support.
We gather the main stakeholder's concerns and create a plan for your product's development.
The main goal of this phase is to ensure we are on track to build the right product with the right features for the buiness need.
Working in two week sprints, we build your product, priotitizing features by business value added.
When the minimum viable product is ready to launch, we make sure all systems are ready to go.
Development & Support
We continute to add features and provide suport for what has already been implemented.
We adopt Lean Principles, meaning that we eliminate unnecessary steps and tasks, encourage delayed decision-making in order to base important choices on facts rather than speculation, and believe in delivering value as quickly and as often as possible.
We also believe in Agile Software Development. By empowering our teams, they develop a sense of ownership over their work and are able to make decisions on their own. We implement Scrum, Kanban, and XP practices into all of our projects.
Our process ensures rapid design and development cycles, making it easy to adapt to feedback and market changes in real time. This means you'll deliver the most useful product that best responds to your customer's needs and take advantage of every opportunity along the way.
The main goal of the Inception Phase is to analyze the project's viability and define a high-level plan for what work needs to be done.
We will conduct interviews to gather feedback and input from all relevant stakeholders in order to outline the technical and business requirements.
Then we might also utilize Elevator Pitch, Stakeholder Mapping, Risk Maps, Trade Off Sliders and other tools to further narrow the scope and define the product vision.
Once we've identified the problem we want to solve and come up with a high-level plan, we can begin prototyping ideas and testing assumptions during the Product Design Phase.
During this phase, our main goal is to ensure that we are on track to build the right product with the right features to meet the business need. We will use techniques such as Vision Boards, Personas Cards, Paper Prototyping, Story Maps, and MVPs to create user stories and work on design prototypes..
Design is completed as soon as we have created enough user stories in the backlog to fulfill the startup requirements.

We kick this phase off by drafting a Working Manifesto, which outlines roles, responsibilities, meeting structures, and the technologies we will use.
At this stage, we should already have a backlog with initial user stories and a foundation of graphic design elements, meaning that we are ready for our first sprint planning meeting.
We generally work in 2-week sprints, which begin with a planning session and end with a retrospective meeting.
During the Development Phase, we get down to the nitty gritty and build software using XP practices such as code reviews, unit testing, and continuous delivery, among others.

When we are ready to deploy, we set up Staging, RC, and Production Areas to ease the transition and make sure that everything is thoroughly tested with continuous integration and automated validations, minimizing room for human error.
When the time comes to hand the product over to your team, we offer training and maintenance to ensure a smooth transition.

Development & Support
The development of a successful product never ends: as more and more users adopt it, new features and adjustments are required.
Using kanban and our proven deployment process, we know how to put code into production quickly in order to rapidly and efficiently respond to user's needs.
During this phase, we monitor the application's performance and behavior using tools like New Relic and Sentry, performing maintenance, fixing bugs, and offering comprehensive support to keep your product in tip-top shape.
We build great software that is visually elegant and performs beautifully. Find out more about the technology stack we use to achieve superb results for your product.
