Faced with omnipresent digital transformation, every industry is changing to remain competitive. We see this macro trend as enabling innovation and enhancing service, not as a scare tactic to force you into expensive service engagements. We appreciate that you know your business best and can come to us when you need a boost to achieve your goals faster.
It’s our primary goal to align our services with your internal processes to better ensure project success. We tailor our solutions to your needs through either a fixed-bid, milestone-based project or through finely-tracked time and materials. It’s up to you.
In this model, we pair our consultants directly with our client teams to increase velocity and decrease project risk. Through a joint effort, our clients are able to augment existing teams with additional subject-matter expertise.
Shared Project Ownership
We can distribute work elements, discrete deliverables, and functional areas based on a clear articulation of your business requirements. Through close collaboration, we are able to “divide and conquer” effectively.
End-to-End Project Delivery
Once inception is complete, we take full ownership of the team and deliverables associated with a specific project. This model is particularly beneficial when dealing with limited in-house resources or seasonal projects.
Our solution offerings encompass the full service cycle, from strategy consulting to application management services and everything in between. We provide mobile development, machine learning solutions, DevOps coaching, and more – the offerings below are just the beginning.
Web & Mobile Apps
Delivering a seamless user experience is crucial to keeping customers satisfied. Our consultants are experts in front-end UI/UX, API design, and native application development for iOS and Android devices.
Managing the infrastructure necessary for powering highly available applications at scale in development and production is not for the faint of heart. We’re intimately familiar with the increasingly intersecting practice areas of development and operations and can guide you through even the most complex tooling.
Being able to power global applications effectively at scale is a basic requirement for any organization. In our 20 years of working in e-commerce, we’ve seen it all, and we have the ability to work across large codebases and to customize solutions in a variety of language environments.
At Avenue Code, we practice what we preach, and many of our consultants are certified Agile Coaches. We pride ourselves on our adaptive framework, where we align Agile methodologies to the inner workings of your organizational constructs in a truly meaningful way.
Enterprise integration goes beyond increasing efficiency and streamlining processes. For the modern e-commerce company, it is mission critical to enable system interconnectivity so that information and resources are available when needed. We are accustomed to working in challenging environments to integrate data from legacy, modern, and cloud-based systems.
Project and program management are critical competencies at Avenue Code. While the majority of our organization is comprised of technical staff, our Project Managers are essential members and leaders of each iteration team who are tasked with keeping team members focused, projects on track, and clients informed. Our PMs are typically certified Scrum masters, are often Agile Coaches, and are always evaluated on communication skills as well as delivery capabilities.
Business analysis is both a science and an art for enterprise software development projects, and we understand that. Our Business Analysts are always asking: What was the client’s original intent? What is the optimal size for a particular user story? How prescriptive should the interaction be with a remote developer? We actively seek nuanced answers to meet our clients’ needs.
Software development is the backbone of our service offerings. Avenue Code developers are carefully screened based on early-stage coding tests, paired programming, whiteboard & design pattern exercises, and communication skills. We know that delivering outstanding solutions isn’t enough, so we also focus on articulating why and how we do what we do.
Quality assurance is a balance between functional testing and automation optimization. The discipline is also the proverbial bookend to business analysis – did the coded result meet the test criteria defined within the user story? At Avenue Code, QA Engineers are not automatons, and as is the case with all our disciplines, we place a premium on communication skills, even when the project role is operating remotely from Brazil.
Our DevOps engineers are always considering how to create stable sites during peak periods, maintain robust and continuous integration, improve release management and production environment rollback procedures, and plan extensively to avoid production issues and provide rapid triage in the even that issues do occur. We see ourselves as specialized differentiators within a software development team who are risk mitigators when involved early, and smokejumpers when involved late.
Product Managers speak both business and tech: they’re the ones tasked with distilling the vision into business requirements and ultimately owning the end product. Great Product Managers see their roles as complementary to Business Analysts and QA testers. As such, they are able to identify compromises where appropriate and act as a bridge between/advocate for both business and technical constituencies.
