Q&A

00

We are asked this question often, on many dimensions. We've even had to provide insight to how we will physically scale our 5800/sqft Toronto office space to accommodate growth - that one was unique. This happens within reason - we avoid over promising since we know what we can achieve. To date, our largest engagement scaling was bringing on 40 people that we executed successfully. We invest in our employment brand, university partnerships, and are constantly scanning and speaking with potential candidates. We primarily recruit in-house with our dedicated People Ops team that have a continuous pool of full-timers we keep warm and a pool of credible contractors we've worked with before. We work well completely remote, even though the majority of our team is located in Toronto, Ontario Canada, but our talent recruitment pool is global. We are proud of the continual investment into our recruiting process and career journeys and love to showcase it with our customers - on occasion, we've even helped our long term customers with their front-end web developer, cloud engineer, and delivery recruitment needs.

01

Yes - we primarily work direct with clients and we play well with others in the sandbox. We are often at the same table as marketing agencies, management consultancies, other software development companies, cloud security companies, and product companies.

02

Yes - where and when it makes sense. We are open to working on segmented areas when the responsibility boundaries are clear, decoupled, and the teams are well integrated and aligned. Some example scenarios we've been involved in would be our front-end development team building a single page application (SPA) with infrastructure and API's developed internally. Or, when a customer uses a preferred UX/UI specialist web design consultancy and we are responsible for developing the software implementation.

03

No - there are many managed services companies out there nowadays that offer a one-size-fits-many offering. Our application support services and 24/7 Azure cloud managed service offering is customized to the needs of our customers and sold as a bolt-on for software we have developed for customers looking for help operating. We develop software with operations in mind, therefore we are comfortable supporting it with confidence and tailored to your needs. We help companies with long-term operational support needs and companies who need temporary help operating until their internal teams are ready (Ask us about our build-operate-transfer engagement model).

04

Yes - right now, we are looking to invest our time and capital into a product that scratches your enterprise non-proprietary itch with an addressable market inside other branches of your organization or outside your organization. We are entrepreneurial at heart and have had held investments in online event ticketing, online and retail clothing retailer, spirits (tequila), hospitality, and more.

05

Depends - we primarily sell our services based on a multi-disciplinary dedicated "team pod" made up of product, design, and engineering. We are open to outcome-based pricing when the right opportunity presents itself. Traditional fixed pricing isn't good for anyone with software development. We avoid it with our Experience & Product Engineering because it forces companies like us and you into delivering committed up-front defined requirements and architecture, leaving no room for pivoting on feedback and making changes that deliver measurable value. Instead, we provide a team capacity that is open to changing priorities governed by your product owner and leadership over an agreed upon duration. That way, we are aligned on value over time and avoid feature creep without business value that bloats delivery timelines.

06

Very rarely. We've decided to avoid building the traditional RFP "pitch team" since we agree with premise "The RFP procurement process is broken". If you have an engagement that you would like to speak to us about, please connect with us - we'd love to understand the impact you want to make.

07

We have been developing Javascript rich single-page applications for many years and its our primary approach with our presentation layer web development. We've built a lot of them. To the point where some of our clients think we are only a front-end web development company.

For the last 5 years, our front-end web developers love has been with React but we have developed front-ends with Angular, Ember.js, Vue.js, and other front-end frameworks and libraries. Many of our "back-end" developers now prefer working on front-end web development projects and bring their full stack web development experience.

Even this website was developed with a Jamstack architecture using React, Contentful headless CMS, and Gatsby for static site generation (and more!). The website is pre-rendered HTML pages that are served from the Azure CDN. Blazing web performance for you, extreme scalability for us, and a pleasure to work with for the front-end web development team.

08

Yes. Our DevOps consulting is focused on helping software development teams deliver faster by enabling them with the DevOps tooling to do so. We've consulted, advised, configured, and implemented custom integrations and migrations aligned to CI/CD practices for automated application and infrastructure provisioning. Our current DevOps toolchain capability includes GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, Azure DevOps, TeamCity, Jenkins, Octopus Deploy, and more.

It's best to Contact Us about your DevOps consulting needs and we can have an honest discussion on whether we are the right fit.
