How will you work?

You will work directly with a client through our Extended Team model. We try to do things differently and put our efforts to integrate you as deeply as possible into the client’s team. You work with the same tools and technologies as they do and are managed directly by a client without any intermediary in between. We help you build relationships and create an environment where you genuinely feel like a member of the client’s team. Our clients usually come for a week each month and spend a lot of time with the team in Kyiv. We also encourage trips to a client and joint teambuildings and after-work activities. Our Extended Team model is focused on long-term projects that last over several years.
