In unusual times, you need something more than usual. So do we.
Even though we value working together (and we simply like spending time with each other), only responsibility and quick adaptation to the new conditions can help us reach the objectives that our Clients count on.
That’s why we decided to go 100% remote before the true outbreak of coronavirus.
Before the outbreak of COVID-19…
Visiting each other occasionally, the clients’ teams and our teams have been working remotely in 97% of all the projects, including workshops. This means we had experience and processes ready to switch to fully a remote envirnoment.
Even though we have an office space, we were always able to work from home – or from elsewhere – whenever it was more convenient. We are used to using tools that facilitate communication, time & progress tracking, and project management.
Our team and clients have never experienced any delays in projects completion during the outbreak of COVID-19.
Having worked on over 50 remote projects, we’ve faced a variety of challenges and tested different ways of dealing with them. As a result, we have established a set of best practices that help us manage remote projects effectively – just as if we were sitting next to each other.
They have good technical knowledge, they take the deadlines seriously, they take responsibility for the project, and the communication is just great. Working with them feels just like having a team next door.
Direct access to developers through instant communicators helps you resolve problems faster while video conferences let you keep track of the project and discuss all the important matters. With the best remote work management tools we stay in touch irrespective of the timezone.
During the project, get a cooperation manual with all information on work organization, meetings, communication channels, documents, files storage & following product changes. All that to facilitate communication from day 1.
Get regular updates on project progress, live access to project monitoring and project files to keep you in the loop. That’s how full transparency is achieved!
Learn about the success stories of remote software development we performed in the past. Your tech project can soon be among them!
Even though the original Design Sprint by GV was designed as a framework for an on-site workshop, the situation led us to modify this setup and run it 100% remotely. This required both adjusting the framework and choosing the right tools that would help us run the Sprint, work on the same board simultaneously, and conduct user interviews.
We were approached by an international financial institution to build a course recommendation system to boost employee career chances through an e-learning platform. We used AI predictive models to provide employees with better course recommendations that would improve their career chances.
The Client saw an opportunity for using AI technologies to predict demand in hospitals for cancer treatment as well as other patient needs. In just three weeks after the AI Sprint we positively validated the hypothesis proving it possible to build a model predicting demand for cancer treatment with NHS and publicly available data.
We were approached by one of the biggest Polish telecoms with almost 1 million customers. They were struggling with growing customer churn. The predictive models we built helped the Client save $39k every month. After a full AI system rollout, our client ended up with more than 10x return on their investment.

The idea of working remotely aligns perfectly with our major values.
Remote work doesn’t mean less discipline. Expect the high productivity and efficiency our developers stay productive and accountable for your project success, no matter where work is done.
The culture of freedom and responsibility (that Netflix has adopted as well) makes our developers more efficient and productive when working on your project. This happens because developers are trusted to make decisions, be proactive and show more initiative.
With this culture in place, your project is approached with a higher level of discipline with employees feeling accountable to achieve results.
Going 100% remote does not change our regular workflow and won’t have an impact on the project’s pipeline. This is possible because of these four values we have adopted company-wide.
The security of your data is our top priority. Our security policy regulates the way we access company tools, servers, and 3rd party services. We use VPNs to access your servers, all of our equipment is encrypted, and so are all the passwords that are additionally stored safely in the cloud. Access to any 3rd party services requires two-step authentication.
Every project has a dedicated Scrum Master whose role is to help the team collaborate and interact, in order to maximize the value delivered by the Scrum Team. A Scrum Master supports Product Owner by ensuring that the goals, scope, and product domain are understood by everyone on the Scrum Team and that Product Backlog is managed effectively. A Scrum Master serves the Development Team by coaching them in self-organization, remove impediments they are facing and facilitates Scrum events.
97% of our projects were fully remote already, and 100% of us have experience working remotely. We are used to working this way! The whole toolkit that we need is already established, and so are all the processes.
We are not slowing down! All the meetings, from daily standups, through demos, retrospectives, to complex workshops are currently handled online, 100% remotely, with video and a set of collaborative tools.
