What we offer

Integrated Teams

Fast-growing companies can not afford to limit themselves to local talents. With our partner in Rwanda, we offer handpicked integrated teams that have a 100% time overlap and participate in daily scrum ceremonies. We guarantee the highest standards. Every developer went through a multi-stage due diligence process by our technical leads. Before we start working together, we apply test tasks and review every team member’s code quality. Talk to us to find out how we pick our developers and how they can help you.
“Codeshift has done a great job supporting Homeday both from an engineering and product perspective in helping to build and evolve our products.”

We are solution-driven and choose the right tool for the job, are used to deploy daily on complex cloud-based architectures, and work closely together with your product team using your favorite agile methodology. Our tech leads are located in Berlin and have 10+ years of experience in the industry.

They are experts in designing and assessing suitable software architecture for your digital product or service. We help you kickstart your tech organization and support you to hire our replacement and the perfect team. Our goal is to give you the best start and then become obsolete.
