About us

Our Team


Experts with years of experience in delivering software. We build data processing systems, scalable web applications, enterprise projects and lean business solutions.

Professionals who care about understanding Customer requirements and problems to provide the right solution. We value long term partnership and we don’t accept mediocre quality and costly shortcuts.

Enthusiasts that get satisfaction from creating innovative solutions. We think big!

Technologies


We are Scala Experts, that have been working with this elegant language and related technologies for years. We use the Typesafe Reactive Platform on a daily basis. We are also in the Java ecosystem since its inception.

Sharing Knowledge


We frequently speak or conduct workshops at conferences. Sometimes we fight at hackathons! See also the Team Blog for our latest publications.

Our Way of Work


We live and breathe the spirit of Agile using one of the best of its forms – Lean-Kanban methodology. Software can provide great business value but when quality isn’t taken seriously it can become a real pain too. We understand that and integrate quality efforts throughout the whole development process. The end result is high quality software that solves problems and adds value.
