UI/UX Designers

Our UI/UX Designers main responsibility is ensuring a smooth and intuitive user experience for the software product. Their role is to imagine themselves as the end-user interacting with the software product and to strive to make the product easy to use. They focus on all aspects of the user experience, including usability, functionality and performance. They also focus on the visual aspects of the product, specifically how it looks and feels to the end user.

UX/UI Designers utilize business requirements to develop wireframes and mockups which ultimately become the foundation for the user experience. They’re a key part of any software development team as they are the ones who champion the needs of the end user.

Our Product Managers are fully responsible for the vision of the product. They document requirements and define the digital strategy for meeting the client’s needs. They are involved in all stages of the software development cycle and can adapt in real time to any changes or constraints. They fully understand the business domain and can leverage the latest trends to construct the optimal product-market fit.

Our Project Managers are in charge of the development, organization, and delivery of a software product. They break the work down into discreet parts and design the workflow. They distribute tasks amongst the team and are responsible for contracts, budgets and timeframes. They are adept at mitigating risks and managing unforeseen circumstances or delays, and ensure things run to plan. Without Project Managers, there would be no plan or structure to deliver the work.

Our Scrum Masters ensure the team follows standard Agile methodologies and frameworks. Agile is a project management mindset that focuses on constant collaboration and value creation. It has evolved over time as an industry best practice for ensuring the successful delivery of digital solutions.

Our QA Engineers are specialists whose activities are aimed to improve the software development process by detecting issues, documenting their behavior, ensuring timely remediation, and advocating for strategies and methods for long term prevention. In other words, they make sure the software development team is doing the right things the right way. Quality assurance is a huge domain containing multiple disciplines, and our QA Engineers are skilled in both manual and automated testing methodologies.
