Creating Disruptively Innovative Software Development Teams

Developing the highest quality software starts well before system requirements are known, even before the initial meeting with a client. High quality software development begins with developing productive teams who are enthusiastic about solving complex problems. At Tiempo Development, we invest in our hiring process and the career goals of our engineers. We strongly believe this allows their skills and creativity to grow into innovative solutions, which helps businesses across the U.S. excel.

The Key to Productivity: Happiness in The Workplace

There have been many studies published about the drivers of employee productivity. One major study by the University of Warwick and the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) found that workplace happiness can lead to approximately 12% greater productivity[1]. For companies like Google who invest in employee support and creative spaces, productivity increased by as much as 37%[2].

The productivity of a software development team is directly linked to how well individual members interact with their teammates and the work environment in general. Those who enjoy working within their teams are more likely to voice innovative ideas and contribute their unique skills. We place great priority in ensuring our team members are not only compatible with one another, but that they are also compatible with the client.

Building Successful Teams

All of our software engineers go through a rigorous hiring process conducted by our human resources professionals and certified technical interviewers. During the interview, we look at each candidate’s professional skills, education and current certifications as well as fluency in spoken and written English to ensure excellent communication skills.

After we’ve hired the best candidates, we create a skills and personality profile for each employee using our custom configurator. The results of the configurator are essential to building a successful development team as it pairs engineers based on member and client compatibility to ensure excellent results.

Tiempo Development enables software engineers to continually grow and improve their skills. We provide our engineers with extensive opportunities to earn additional certifications and explore advanced practices, thus keeping employees engaged and excited.
