Managed Teams: let us take care of your software project for you

Managed teams

Don’t have the capacity or expertise to build software in your organization? We do!

Many of our clients do not have a background in software product development. On the other hand, some do, but have an organization that is not ready for undertaking software projects. Tunga can provide you with a team of qualified software engineers. Moreover, we can set you up with an experienced senior project manager, who can lead your software project for you!

In this construction, you have one focal point: the project manager. That is to say, you manage the project manager, who in turn manages the team and the work. Further, Tunga takes care of all the peripheral matters. For instance payments, taxes, HR policies and technical infrastructure.

Scoping Phase

Setting up the managed team usually starts with an investigation of your exact needs: the scoping phase. During this phase, we help you formulate the concrete requirements and desired end results of the project. And turn them into a planning and cost estimation.

Project Manager

Subsequently, the project manager will be responsible for executing the project as specified in the scoping document. For instance, if you would like to change the scope, the project manager can coordinate this with you. In short, he or she will take care of all operational matters for you.

Assembling Managed Teams

The project manager will assemble your team based on the requirements that were identified in the scoping phase. In the same vein, the project manager allocates skills and time to fit the project’s needs as exactly as possible.

Process

All our managed teams follow agile methodology. Consequently, the use all common modern tooling for distributed software development like Github, Slack, Jira, Zoom, etc. We usually plan projects in 2-3 week sprints. And that includes Quality Assurance (QA), performed by our internal separate QA team.
