KODE: 2017 year summary

Another successful year is in our KODE thrift-box of memories. During past twelve month, we succeeded in implementing major part of our ideas, but we understand that there is still much to grow and improve.

Despite the fact that we are based in Kaliningrad and do not plan to change the dislocation, we got offers not only from Russian but also foreign companies. We continue to focus on quality, not on the quantity of our projects, so we have only accepted the most interesting ones from more than 250 offers.

 

Mobile apps

We released 14 apps: promoapp “Growing up with Whiskas”, educational service for Institute of Russian language “Learn Russian”,  and also financial apps for three banks – Latvian BlueOrange and Russian BinBank and RosEvroBank.

We continued our collaboration with Utair Airlines and Pobeda Airlines releasing useful and essential updated for our apps.

 

HR

We have grown almost twice - now we have more than 50 coders in the company.

Over the year, our HR department has examined more than 1,000 candidates, conducted about 300 code reviews and more than 250 interviews.

We organized two internships, as a result of which several young developers joined us.

New York, Moscow, San Francisco, Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk, Krasnodar, Krakow, Tyumen are not just points on the map, but part of the cities visited by coders, that participated in business trips, meetings and conferences.
