Complex Back-End System
Most web and mobile applications need the backend service for proper operation. The choice of backend technology is crucial for the entire system because it affects its speed, operating costs and reliability. A properly designed and built backend ensures transaction security and protection of its users’ data. An important aspect of the backend system is its database. The choice of database, relational or non-relational, and its design affect the speed of a given application, security and the possibility of extension in future. A properly designed system should also have a well-designed and documented API so that integration with web and mobile applications is as efficient as possible.
Back-End is often considered a more difficult part of an IT system than Front-End.
The way things work, the logic vs the outlook are what piques our interest. We have a passion for algorithms, math and data structures. Some of us have participated in national and international algorithmic contests and enjoy problem-solving challenges, even after hours.

Front-End Web Apps
The time wherein applications and websites were built only using JS, HTML, SCSS have passed. Today, front-end apps are a showpiece for your business because it is something that the user sees and can work with. The front-end application must be fast, secure, able to support poor-quality internet connection and different screen resolutions, and above all, be easy to use.
In designing front-end applications we have various frameworks to choose from, such as React, Vue, Angular, just to mention a few, that provide speed and good user experience. These applications also let developers work effectively so that the application can be created fast while maintaining good quality and the possibility of a long-term use.
For many years, Facebook's React had been a king of modern web frameworks. In recent times, the trend changed. Many engineers nowadays prefer Vue.js over React with Vue also garnering more stars on Github. Vue allows for faster, more intuitive web development as compared to React. However, both frameworks are very similar and shine especially for smaller projects such as MVPs or prototypes.
For corporate web applications, we have observed that Angular 2 is a better solution because it offers a uniform way of doing things that is important for big and extensive web projects. It also allows for a faster on-boarding of new engineers to the system. Many big firms we work with very recently prefer using Angular over React or Vue.
Smartphones are one of the most essential technologies nowadays. That is why a mobile app can make your business accessible to millions of users. For your application to be successful, it must be intuitive, fast, practical and above all, easy to use. Our experts carry out the process of creating applications, from the design to clickable prototypes that will help understand the needs of the market and its potential users. After this, they incrementally provide subsequent parts of the application so that you, our client, have continuous insight and can take part in its creation. The choice of technology between Native or Cross-platform solutions is substantial when designing the application. On cross-platforms solutions such as React Native, Cordova or Flutter, the application is created simultaneously on both Android and IOS resulting in reduced time and costs. However, native solutions have certain advantages over cross-platform, so, therefore, it is encouraged to make the decision at the very beginning.
When the application is ready, it is then deployed to the Play Store (Android) and the App Store (IOS).
Our recommendation for cross-platform solutions is to use Flutter which is Google's counterpart to Facebook's React Native. It has been stable since December 2018 and is quickly gaining popularity in the mobile community. We have also observed that app development is much faster with Flutter compared to Cordova or React Native which is very important especially for the MVP stage or a quick prototype.

Collecting, storing, analyzing and processing large data sets is a complicated process. However, it leads to gaining new knowledge which can turn into unexpected business results, reduced operating costs and a significant increase in your company's income. Our experts have been operating and troubleshooting the 900-node YARN Hadoop cluster at Spotify, thus, becoming certified Hadoop specialists. Thanks to their experience and skills, they will be able to effectively use analytical techniques such as machine learning and verify hypotheses to obtain the best results for your business.
With regards to Big Data projects, we have been helping companies in various industries such as finance, financial services, entertainment & media, retail, pharmaceutical, and telecommunications.
DevOps & Cloud Infrastructure
Software development is a multi-stage process that also connects specialists from various fields. DevOps allows us to look at the product from a broader perspective and monitor the production process from the beginning. Our team uses the best DevOps practices such as continuous integration and delivery, micro-service architecture, collaboration, and communication that will allow us to shorten the software development cycle. We are able to increase the frequency of release, thus introduce faster improvements and innovations in response to the rapid change of market needs. Automation makes it possible to effectively manage, maintain, and ensure the reliability of complex systems because each release can be tested automatically. Through DevOps, developers and operational teams can work closely together in exchanging knowledge and sharing responsibilities, which allows for more efficient work and quicker results.
We have hugely experienced DevOps specialists in our team and network. One of us has worked for a Node.js foundation, helping them scale their infrastructure to millions of downloads a week - which is pretty challenging yet rewarding.
