How we are
Different

Take a look at some of the ways we stand out from the competition. We think you’ll agree that we are unique in what we can offer.

Pods

Image

Pods are a fully autonomous agile team working within Pina Vida for your business. Each pod has all the members it needs to act with complete autonomy. There are no blockers waiting for other teams either in your organisation or in Pina Vida. This is key to project delivery and removing many of the common problems with software delivery. Our pods are structured to let the team do their job and to focus solely on that.

The constitution of each pod depends on your needs but will generally include a scrum master and technical architect in addition to technical specialists. These are the only two members of the team that will regularly interact with your team. Their job is to keep the rest of the pod unblocked and liaise with you if there are problems.

If someone in the pod needs to book holiday, resolve an IT issue, or order a software license this is all done within the pod. There is no dependency anywhere else in Pina Vida and the pod acts as a fully autonomous software development company that is completely dedicated to your delivery.

This structure is key to our success. It allows us to keep the entire team unblocked and working in an agile fashion even if your organisation is waterfall and slower moving. This keeps momentum moving and helps us to deliver for you.

Risk

We believe that a software project is about delivering what you want at the highest quality as quickly as is possible. Many projects fail despite huge sums of money being spent on large development teams that achieve very little. For us, delivery is number one. It’s not about working on something for so long that it is obsolete by the time it’s ready, it’s not about trying and then failing – it’s about delivering.

Our commercial model reflects this. We don’t believe that just providing developers at a day rate and keeping the project running for a month-after-month is in the best interests of the project, you or us. Each contract is unique but focussed around delivery and sharing the risk between you and us.

We Deliver

Image

Our projects are not about developing software. They’re not about user interface. They’re not about requirements analysis. They’re not about architecture. They’re not about testing. We do all those things for you – but the only thing we’re focussed on throughout is delivering your project.

We won’t try to hook you in with unrealistic delivery dates that never happen. We provide you with realistic estimates and incremental regular deliveries. We operate truly agile development teams that provide you with production ready software every few weeks. On larger projects you might still want to wait to release it to production – but you will have constant visibility on what we’re doing.

Your organisation may be more waterfall than agile, but you can still benefit from engaging with Pina Vida. Our pods are specifically designed to eliminate all common blockers from software projects. It’s like having a perfectly functioning agile team in your business that is focussed solely on delivery.

Our
Verticals

We work with clients across a wide range of sectors. As well as our verticals your might be interested in our services that we can offer.

For each client we take on we believe understanding your business top-to-bottom is pivotal to delivery. No team companies, even in the same sector, operate in the same way. It is understanding your unique differences and your technology stack that we believe helps us to put together a truly unique offering.

Our clients come from all sectors and we’ve worked with retail, financial services, blockchain, diamond, consumer mobile and aggrotech clients. Regardless of your sector, we can support you.

Our
Values

Our values are key to what makes Pina Vida different. The most important value we have is looking after our team. We’re all about delivery but we can only do that because of our people. We believe that the wellbeing of our staff directly translates to the success of your project.

All our staff work flexibly in a way that supports their lives. We believe that what happens in the lives of our team outside of work is most important and we support that. Whether our team members are morning larks or night owls, whether there’s a family crisis or perhaps someone just needs some support – our entire business in built around support.

As an organisation we offer a reduced working week, flexible hours, and fully remote working. We do this because it’s right – but it turns out that it also helps our clients and our deliveries. We’ve found that having a staff-first business increases the quality of our deliveries and increases productivity within a team.
