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. Some do, but have an organization that is not ready for undertaking software projects. Next to providing you with a team of qualified software engineers, 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. You manage the project manager, who in turn manages the team and the work. All the peripheral matters like payments, taxes, HR policies and technical infrastructure are taken care of by Tunga.


The Scoping Phase

Setting up the managed team usually starts with an investigation of your exact needs: the scoping phase. In 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.

The Project Manager

The project manager will be responsible for executing the project as specified in the scoping document. If you would like to change the scope, it can be coordinated with the project manager. He will take care of all operational matters for you.

The Team

Assembling your team will be done by the project manager based on the requirements that were identified in the scoping phase. Skills and time will be allocated to fit the project’s needs as exactly as possible.

The Process

All our managed teams follow agile methodology, using all common modern tooling for distributed software development like Github, Slack, Jira, Zoom, etc. The project will be planned in 2-3 week sprints, that include Quality Assurance (QA), performed by our internal separate QA team.
