Productivity and Enthusiasm: Hiring Development Teams that Excel

Developing the highest quality software starts well before we receive the system requirements or the first meeting with a client. It starts 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, because it allows their skills and creativity to grow into innovative solutions.

The Key to Productivity: Happiness in The Workplace

There have been many studies published on 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 who invested in employee support and creative spaces like Google, 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. Software engineers who enjoy working within their teams are more likely to voice innovative ideas and contribute their unique skills. We place great priority in ensuring that our software development teams are not only compatible to work with one another, they’re also compatible to work with the client.

Building Successful Teams

All of our software engineers go through a rigorous hiring process, conducted by our human resources personnel and certified technical interviewers. During the interview, we look at each candidate’s professional skills, education and current certifications, personality and communication skills.

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

Tiempo Development enables software engineers to continually improve their skills. We provide our software engineers with extensive opportunities to earn additional certifications and explore advanced practices.
