At Zitec we do more than just coding. We try to optimize and automate our clients' business processes, while making best use of a wide range of technologies.
Our PHP teams work with Symfony, Phalcon and Zend Framework to build complex, custom-made applications or with Drupal and Magento to implement high quality and cost-efficient solutions for customers in need of a CMS or e-Commerce platform. And because we like diversity, the .NET team is always already for a challenge when it comes to ASP.NET MVC or SharePoint, while in the other room some of us will asynchronously write code in Node.js.
Of course, mobile apps have their dedicated team as well. Be it a native app on iOS, Android or Windows Phone or a cross-platform app, they will do an outstanding job at developing it.
Data storage systems are also important to us! Data is a first-class citizen in every application, so it should be treated accordingly. We try to select the right tool for the job: from relational databases (MySQL, SQLServer or PostgreSQL) to the new kids on the block: NoSQL databases or cloud blob storage.
We are certified in:
Delivering quality has always been our strength and over the years it has helped us win important customers and build long term partnerships.
We believe in automation and thanks to that we think that every repeating step from our activity should be automated. To make this happen, we use a lot of cool tools, starting from the well known ones like Behat for functional testing, PhantomCSS for UI regression testing or JMeter/Tsung for perfomance, to in-house framework for API testing or custom scripts that automate specific scenarios.
Above all, we rely on our special friend, Jenkins, who does the hard work for us: assures that every newly committed code meets our internal standards, builds and deploys the code, runs the tests, or wakes up in the middle of night to check how our code quality metrics evolve.
We are certified in:
We know how to play with the Clouds, whether we are talking about cloud migrations or new scalable setups built from the ground up. We play with Amazon in the morning and with Azure in the noon. Because we like to keep an eye on the servers, we use Pingdom, Nagios, Site 24x7 or even custom made scripts to make sure no glitch appears without being detected. We play a key role in the development process and team up with developers to build deployment and testing infrastructure.
We are certified in:
We simply focus on delivering value to our customers based on their business model and their objectives.
We strive to improve the development process and automate quality control, sprint after sprint.
Team and Client Relation
We create partnerships and get involved in our clients’ projects to make a positive impact. It’s in our DNA.
As a result of our high standards of delivery and quality, we have an impressive customer retention rate. And this motivates us to keep improving ourselves.
Custom methodology based on Agile
We subscribe to the Agile manifesto and embrace it across the variety of our projects, as difficult as that sometimes can be. However, based on our partners' needs and the particularities of each project, we’ve developed a custom approach that helps us and our clients see long-term business benefits of Agile.
We’re always looking for the next tool to help us be more efficient or drive quality improvement in our work. Some of the tools we’ve been using over the past years are tools that we’ve created based on needs that our own teams have had. And other companies have often shown interest in white label solutions. We’re talking about bug tracking platforms like Redmine or project management & 360 evaluation solutions like Zidox.
When it comes to inhouse communication, we’re all available on Hangouts, as the official chat platform, but we encourage each team to be flexible and approach other solutions such as Skype, Pidgin or other platforms that better suit their project and the client.
We’re really proud to have built the Zitec team on a flat structure and self-managing teams dedicated to important projects or various departments. Over the years, some of the colleagues who have shown passion for their work and management abilities have joined the Zibord, helping us to improve as a company and build more and more business opportunities for us and for our partners.
