In our company, project work is performed in clusters. They unite groups of people who function as a single system aimed at solving common tasks. What makes a cluster special is that it contains all the necessary resources to implement a complex approach to project work.
For instance, instead of passing an online store development over from team to team, all the required expertise gets accumulated in one cluster. It may include e-commerce, markup, and JS developers, as well as QA engineers. All of them work in parallel.
Within a cluster, project teams are formed. They’re not permanent and change from project to project. That makes it possible to carry on work even when one of the professionals involved in a project is unavailable.
In this post, we’d like to introduce you to some of our clusters and tell you about their specialties.
Engagement Management Cluster
Every client who chooses our company is welcomed by the Engagement Managers (EMs). It is the EMs who answer your phone calls and messages, clarify your key needs, suggest the best ways to meet them, and select a cluster with the most fitting expertise to solve your problem.
The E-Commerce cluster is a large team whose main area of expertise is building online stores based on WooCommerce, Magento, Shopify, and BigCommerce. Initially, it only specialized in Magento development. However, as time went by, the cluster began expanding its scope of expertise. That allowed it not only to implement projects in compliance with a client’s requirements but also provide expert advice.
The ASAP Cluster was created to streamline work on short-term projects. To reduce implementation time, the team uses the parallel development method, which supposes the concurrent work of two or more software professionals on a project. Under this scenario, the ASAP team views the aim to “meet any deadline a client sets” not as a challenge but as a routine everyday task. Thanks to well-tuned communication channels and time-tested development techniques, the cluster can guarantee the ASAP solution for the most complex problems.
Cluster 11 was created 3 years ago as a response to a regular client’s request to teach them to work with their own CMS — an in-house product.
The idea to create a team with deep expertise in a client’s CMS proved to be very clever. The guys designed their own coding standards to meet the client’s requirements and regularly update them from project to project.
The history of the Email Cluster began in 2013 from a small team of developers. At that time, a group of markup developers who had been working with emails most often saw certain patterns that could help optimize and streamline the process of email markup development. An idea was put forth to consolidate all the processes related to email markup development into one cluster.
Today, the Email Cluster provides a broad range of services, including the development of email templates, landing pages, and banners for a variety of advertising platforms such as Google Ads, Adroll, etc.
Cluster 14 was formed around 2 years ago. Its key area of expertise is the development of front-end and WordPress projects. At the moment, it’s undergoing an interesting process of expansion and transformation. This year, it has been joined by developers from other clusters.
A symbiosis like this created an atmosphere favorable to exchanging experience. The developers willingly share their methods and talk about the characteristics of the processes that existed in their previous clusters.
Cluster 9 specializes in the development of Drupal and WordPress projects. The process here is built in a way that allows the developers to take on the most complex custom tasks and guarantee the on-time delivery of the final product.
This was just a brief overview of our teams and their areas of expertise. In the next posts, we’re going to tell you about each of the clusters in detail. Stay tuned!
