How we work
Every product is different, every customer has very individual needs. Below, we describe the principles that allow us to satisfy that. Your success is our success.
We value the most the spirit of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development: the importance of individuals and interactions, collaborating with you, responding to change and producing working software that has value for your business.
Here’s what it’s like to develop your software product with 10Clouds. As an example scenario we present a story of an MVP. It's agile and flexible – we always tailor it to your needs.
A successful project kickoff means we get to the bottom of all the context, needs and user expectations, and we’re ready to start design and development.
During the discovery workshop we uncover business background, technical requirements, the product's initial scope, and plan out the first product increment.
This is what happens when we start working on your ideas. We repeat it over and over until your product is finished. We use Scrum to make our work efficient, predictable, and valuable. Take a look at the key elements of Scrum:
We plan work in intervals called Sprints. They usually last 2 weeks. Together with you, we plan which features to include in the development, and decide how we implement them.
We split our work into small parts so that we present the effects of our efforts often. We work incrementally. Every sprint we deliver a testable piece of work.
We value honesty and transparency in giving and receiving feedback. Every Sprint we adapt to change and strive to improve how we work together.
Apart from developing products entirely within the 10Clouds team, we can also join your own team and support it with an appropriate skillset you’re in demand of. We’re ready to help with web and mobile development as well as product design, project management, and quality assurance.
Before you decide to invite us onboard, consider the following:
We work in agile teams.
Every project needs to have a trusted toolset.
The quality of code is a priority to us.
Our prerogative is to create products.
To gain your trust, we guarantee transparency on every step of the way.
Your billing is based on the number of hours worked by the project team, so you know exactly what you’re paying for.
How do you know whether your billing is accurate? Simply check the time logs, any time you need.
Communicate freely with no managerial overhead. Both you and your team get constant support from the Scrum Masters to make sure things go the best way possible.
We understand you may want to protect your idea in all ways possible. We’re open to signing NDAs, and we can do it in a snap by using electronic signatures.
You can see what’s going on under the hood at all times. Best results come from collaborating directly with our developers.
Do you feel that time difference affects communication? Fear not. Weekly calls, regular planning sessions, and access to interactive comm channels do the trick.
We select tools according to the project’s specifics and needs, not the other way round. Here you’ll find a few examples of our favorite productivity software.
Our basic real-time communication tool for the clients and the teams.
Every project has a dedicated private channel (chat room) to discuss all the issues related to our work. This way, your product info is secure and transparent at the same time.
The go-to project management platform.
There you can see what’s going on in your project, what happened in the past, and what the team is planning to do in the future. Here’s where you track sprints, check timelogs, and observe the progress in your project.
For every project, we grow a knowledge base kept in Confluence.
You can compare it to the 10Clouds projects’ Wikipedia. Here’s where we keep documentation, plans, retrospectives, memos, meeting minutes, and other know-how pieces essential for everyone to make sure the projects are running smoothly.
We utilize a selection of tools from Google.
To facilitate information sharing in different ways and formats, we also utilize a selection of tools from Google. The video calls are handled via Hangouts and the documents are shared in Drive - all in dedicated folders with accurate accessibility for 10Clouds and the client’s team.
This is where we share, comment, and discuss the designs in progress.
We love it for the simplicity it brings to collaboration between designers and non-designers by minimizing the possibility of confusion and misinterpretation.
The place to store, share, and send the code into the world by developers.
A global platform that enables teams to collaborate and present the effects of their work instantly, no matter what technology they work with.

We needed a partner who could take on our idea, and make it real. 10Clouds bring so many different skills. We feel that every member that’s involved in the project is a member of our team.
