ABOUT ENERGIZED WORK
Doing good with great software
“Energized Work’s approach to rapidly producing quality software is the best I’ve seen in the last 20 years.”
CTO at a leading global provider of retail trading services
We are taking a stand against bad software and poor delivery.
We started Energized Work because we got tired of seeing businesses let down by software delivery. We deliver what’s needed - on time and on budget, and stop money being wasted on technology that isn’t needed, features that won’t be used and software that isn’t up to the job.
We've been called business peoples’ techies
We help businesses pursue opportunities and solve business problems. We stay focused on the business drivers and don’t let technology overtake purpose.
because we care.
We’re interested in what you have to say. We want to understand what you're trying to do because we make a point of creating software that lets you do things the way they want without technology getting in the way.
We work differently to deliver maximum value.
We iterate to reduce uncertainty and risk. Continuous feedback helps us understand what’s going to work best. We learn what’s really needed and respond quickly to ensure the benefits delivered are more valuable than the cost of the software.
There’s no nonsense, no waste and no secrets.
We swapped convention for common sense, disciplined technique and radical transparency. While others are trying to figure everything out up front we’re delivering working features every week. We were early adopters of Extreme Programming and in 2009 we received the Agile Alliance Gordon Pask Award for our contributions to agile practice.
We work in small, collocated teams that punch above their weight.
We work in really small teams that do all the heavy lifting at the back end and all the cool stuff at the front end. We know that a handful of really capable guys, who have worked together for years and sit in the same room, consistently deliver better results than a big team a thousand miles away.
We are out to make quality mean something
We build software that works. And we stand behind it. Experience has taught us that cutting corners comes back and hurts. We don't put things off in the rush to get software out the door because we know there’s never time to put things right. We design solutions to run in the real world without hassle. Running costs are low and we don't get calls in the middle of the night.
and put the ‘soft’ back into software.
The total cost of owning poor quality software kills competitiveness. Businesses get locked into software that’s expensive to maintain, too brittle to build on and too risky to replace. We promise to deliver business assets made from healthy, robust and malleable software that can be built upon safely to keep delivering business benefits.
