Values

Passionate

We love what we do and do what we love. Because it takes passion to deliver excellence.

Specialized

We focus on our strengths so that we perform very well in these areas, rather than averagely in all areas.

Personal

Personal. Friendly. Straightforward. Flexible. That’s how we love to work with clients and employees.

Responsable

In our dealings with clients and employees. In our daily work. In our personal commitment.

Goals

We want to make every single project a success. Not just financially, we also want to create excellent products. Products we can be proud of. Innovative, creative, easy to use. Simply setting benchmarks.

We want our work to be fun. Above all, fun in the sense of fulfillment. To feel satisfied with ourselves and our surroundings. Achieving personal and common goals.

And to consciously nurture and develop a business culture that focuses on team spirit, trust and personal responsibility, as well as personal and professional development. And consequently on long-term success.

And we look for clients who can help us achieve our goals. Those who have the same passion to strive for perfect results, those we can communicate with on an equal footing, those who trust us and we can trust in.

Right, let’s get to work!

Technology

We live by our passion for modern, high-performance technologies. These are subject to constant change, so we also believe in continuous learning. A selection of the most important technologies and development methods that we currently use:

Rich Internet Applications

We love modern HTML5 SPA front-ends with ember.js, our preferred framework for ambitious web applications, enhanced by specialized frameworks such as d3.js or three.js.

High-Performance Back-End Applications

We develop PHP5-based server-side applications and REST APIs with Symfony 2 or ZF, and in special cases also with node.js.

Agile Development

We prefer lean and agile development processes and methods wherever possible, with Scrum as the framework.

Test-driven Development

We believe in quality and vitality by using tested software, automated, in front-end (e.g. ember.js with QUnit/Mocha/Yadda) and in back-end (Behat/phpspec/PHPUnit).

Productive Tools

We use modern tools, for version (git/Bitbucket) and task management (JIRA), continuous integration & deployment (Bamboo), build processes (gulp.js, Less etc.) and virtualization (Vagrant, Docker).

Open Source

Our technology stack is based on stable, proven and leading open source software. We also try to give something back through our own developments wherever we can.

  • Get to work

    Our light and airy office is located in the center of Hamburg, in Eimsbüttel, a young and vibrant part of the city. Easy to reach by car and public transport.

    This is where we think, laugh, discuss and work in peace. As we are team players, we need the team to have physical proximity. However, we also offer flexible working hours, and the opportunity to work from home if required.

    Performances are the result of mental rather than physical presence. And only then, can we assess ourselves as a team and individuals.

  • Plan

    We prefer agile development processes like Scrum.

    We purposely do our resource planning offline, which makes it no less effective however: we use LEGO bricks to represent the allocation of employees to projects. One column per day, one row per project, and one color per employee. Clear, intuitive, haptic, modern.

    However, we also use a wide range of software tools. JIRA is our workhorse for task management and tracking, both classically and in agile mode. The most important information from this such as sprint progress, number of open tasks or deployment status is condensed and transparently represented on TV-based wallboards, so-called information radiators.

  • Work

    Our typical workplace, our peaceful, bright office is well-equipped: plenty of space, high-quality office chairs, modern technology (as desired - usually an iMac with two 27” screens).

    Our virtual tools also have to reflect the latest state-of-the-art technology. From the frameworks used (focus on Ember.js for the front-end, Symfony 2 for the back-end), the IDE (PHPStorm) and version management (Git-based with Bitbucket as front-end) to virtualized runtime environments (Vagrant, Puppet).

  • Break

    Everyone deserves a break when they work hard. Time to clear the mind and satisfy hunger.

    The Osterstraße area offers a wide variety of lunch options. In terms of small snacks, we provide free coffee, cold drinks and fruit.

    And if you need to switch off for a little while, you can head up to our roof terrace if the weather is good. Or you can challenge a colleague to a match, as our conference table can also be used as a table tennis table.

  • Deliver

    A task is only complete once it has been delivered. Our Bamboo server oversees the process of continuous integration and delivery. Each git branch push gets this started, and implements the automatic software tests, and only once everything is green, and a colleague has reviewed the code in the pull request, can the feature branch be merged (we use git flow).

    The build process then activates the necessary build tasks (gulp.js) in order to compile Less stylesheets or minify JavaScript, for example. This is followed by deployment in the respective environment (staging, production etc.). Fully automated of course.

    Release is online. Software tested and running. Happy customer. Happy developer.

  • Learn

    A rolling stone gathers no moss. Even more so for software developers. To prevent this from happening, we attach great importance to continuous learning.

    By learning on the job. By exchanging ideas, e.g. in the form of a Friday workshop. But also by taking part in activities independent from the job. E.g. we organise the Ember.js Meetup Group in Hamburg.

    Because there’s one thing that’s very important to us: we have to do what we do with passion. That’s the only way to deliver excellence.

  • Relax

    Half your life is spent at work. Sometimes even more. Therefore we have to make the time we spend together as pleasant as possible. Both at work, and also beyond for those who want to.

    Whether it’s trying out new sports together, with varying success (curling!), or a more relaxed end to the working week on the roof terrace with a barbecue and cold beer.
