The story of Netkodo is short - once there were two guys, Przemek and Jarek, who shared a school desk at math classes. The funny thing is that nowadays they work desk to desk at Netkodo office. Long before they began their battles with code they fought many others in the school gym during Physical Education, playing football and basketball. After school their paths split for a while - Przemek studied IT in his hometown and Jarek enjoyed and educated himself during Erasmus programmes in Scotland and Germany. Meanwhile, Przemek fell for Ruby and gained experience as a team leader, Jarek was more into Java. Years passed, Przemek had his own software house, working on various IT projects and Jarek wandered around the world, working for IT companies from Boston to Barcelona. And then they met again, working together on a project. They had so much fun sitting together and remembering old days that they decided to create the Netkodo team that currently consists of… developers and two former schoolboys.
We treat customer’s success as our own success. We’re entrepreneurs, so we’re sympathetic toward the community, but there’s more to it: we know that there’s nothing better in terms of development, marketing and PR strategy than a satisfied client.
The core of the team is two school friends and we always try to keep it positive in the office. We believe in human-to-human communication and always try to make our relationships with customers as friendly as possible. Same with our team – we share our knowledge, our ups and downs in the development process and support each other
If we meet any problems on the way of development, we get straight to the point. We know honesty and openness pay off in a long run – we expect the same from our customers.
We cherish our failures, they make us who we are: an experienced team that fought many battles with code and learned from each and every mistake on the way. Practice makes perfect ;)
We are agile but the methodology is not the most important value in Netkodo. People are important. Clients, users, developers. That’s why all works are performed with the continuous analysis of results and adjustment of previous sprints and each project development goes through Plan-Prototype-Test-Adjust iterative cycle.
We’ve established two models: Standard project management with the fixed budget for the whole project, where we estimate scope and cost of work together with our client. The fixed-price project is a bit more into Waterfall model: we gather a list of tasks and work on that step by step, keeping it as Agile as it gets.

The agile project manager is our link between you and team. PM takes responsibility for keeping in mind the high-level goals of a project, making decisions, meeting schedules, delegating tasks, spreading good vibes and being consistent. PM contacts you on a daily basis via Skype, Slack, Google hangout and Redmine, Taiga for tracking progress. We set up weekly meetings to keep all team members updated and to remind them of the goal. We are constantly tracking time spent on each task and collect it carefully. In the end of every week, all this information is sent to the client in a weekly report.
