HOW WE WORK

From big

to small

Over the years we worked with companies on both ends of the spectrum, from big enterprise to small innovative funded startups, and any size in between. Currently 60% of our client base is mid-size companies (mostly PE owned), 20% big enterprise and 20% startups.

Our model is simple, we either provide a dedicated Agile SDLC turnkey team, or we spec and estimate a project and we guarantee our estimates, timing and deliverables, or else. Our talent goes through a very robust selection and training program before they join a team, regardless of their experience.

We are a believer in Agile/Scrum, however, we deploy different versions of agile for different clients and projects, based on their specific needs and processes.

THE PROCESS

How do we develop talent 

Our internal Talent Growth Center was created in 2010 in an effort to provide continues generation of talent internally, without the market dependency.​ 

  • We accept young and talented individuals in 10-people pods. ​
  • They start with 3-6 months internal training (depending on their speed and project complexity).​
  • Then they shadow for another 6 months supervised by a mentor, typically a team lead.​
  • Finally, they start working in a junior role supervised by the team lead and monitored by the TGC coordinators.​

Give back

IT Labs has done numerous charitable initiatives for many non-profits or individuals in need. Our latest edition of the Reimagine Conference had 100% of the contributions going to charitable causes.

In an effort to contribute to the technology community, we launched our series called CTO Confessions, in a podcast and webinar form, where technology leaders contribute their wisdom to the rest of the tech community. To learn more about CTO Confessions, please visit our page here.
