GIZMO's planning is centered on the opportunity, driven by market requirements, user stories, and our extensive experience in tech startups. Development milestones and dependencies are identified and distilled into a three-year roadmap with an initial MVP at 3- to 6-months.
When planning a complete product, there is no substitute for a calculated approach that accounts for all stakeholders. When building it, you have to deliver measurable results while anticipating change, iteration, and refinement. We're agile and we're rational.
We have decades of experience and we've watched many technologies emerge, mature, and decline. We believe the viability of the application trumps all else, even if it means we favor using proven technologies over the bleeding-edge variety our inner-geek desires.
GIZMO has operated a private cloud for years, hosting and managing most of the applications we've developed. Built on a tier-1 global IP network and our own "bare metal", our cloud is designed for high-availability at every layer — with the help of NTT, VMware, ZFS, Ubuntu, and FreeBSD.
Hosting is an essential part of our quality control process. As we watch your application scale and stress, we iterate to maintain optimal performance. This ensures your organization's growth potential with an added layer of customer service and accountability.
After years of growing product-driven software companies, GIZMO's principles were attracted by the idea of building a virtual services enterprise capable of assembling the best American talent regardless of geography, in a way that was entirely transparent to the client.
GIZMO’s client-centered teams mirror a shared resources model which enables us to scale up or down with minimal disruption while simultaneously preserving the mind share invested in a project. Each team includes an account manager, project coordinator, and developers matched to project requirements.
In order to achieve the objective of a virtual services enterprise, GIZMO has assembled a constellation of tools that create a sense of space for development teams to function as if they are working in the same room.
In developing the organization, we were driven to serve our associates as effectively as our clients. Team members join GIZMO and remain because we provide a compelling value proposition for working remotely.
