We believe one of the most important skills a developer can have is empathy. Technology is full of people who are more comfortable coding than understanding their customer. It's not enough to just take the hottest technology and use it because it's popular - you have to know how customers will interact with software long after the project is complete. We think through user stories, we plan for future versions, we decide what needs to be built now and what can wait until more is known about the end-user.
We work in teams with our clients, creating a specific team at inaka, based upon the needs of a particular project, or in some specific cases we will physically sit within a client team; the solution depends on each client and their needs.
If you would like to discuss a possible project with us, or would simply like to know more, we would love to hear from you.
