We recruit only the best people and we don't hold them back. The result: a highly-talented team of 30 employees including 7 technical developers (many with first-class degrees in Computer Science), 3 front-end (UX) developers and a dedicated support team of 5. Each of our consultants is bright, easy to get on with and highly motivated to ensure your project is a success.
On an Agile project all team members communicate directly with our clients - so they speak your language (no jargon) and they are honest and upfront about issues and challenges.
