We also have over 10 years of average hands-on coding experience, across multiple technologies, vertical markets and platforms. While many of our staff hold M.Sc. or Ph.D. degrees in computer, mathematics and information sciences, we believe that academic excellence is only a starting point for becoming an outstanding software engineer.

Staff Development and Retention

We believe that the key to excellence in our business is to motivate and retain our staff. We do this by providing opportunities to all our employees to become equity holders in the business. One of the reasons of our many subsidiaries is that we continuously spin-off teams that come up with viable business and product ideas and allow them to own and manage their own business, while retaining a degree of financial and board-level control.
