How we do it

Code Wizards is owned and run by a technical team. We all started our careers as software developers and have honed our skills and specialised into our niche roles over our time in the industry.

It is well known that software projects often overrun in time and budget and in the worst of cases do so whilst also having features dropped. How do we at Code Wizards avoid this? We do so in three main ways:

1) We don’t believe in one size fits all. We understand that each client has different requirements, reporting and governance and as such we work with you to identify what you need from us as a software delivery partner. We are fully versed in a wide range of development processes and technical stacks and will only propose solutions and approaches that fit the requirements of your project. We generally run 2 weeks sprints within our own development team but we can use this to complement any overarching project governance your company may have.

2) Our team has experts in their field responsible for the various elements of software delivery who span multiple projects ensuring they retain a holistic view. Essentially in programming terms each person retains single responsibility for their area – they are the system of record!

3) Communication is king.  We love speaking to our customers and clients.  They're the ones with the great ideas and they're the ones who tell us how to improve.  We're not proud and we love feedback (positive and negative) so we encourage working directly with clients across every role in our business.  If you phone the office there's a good chance one of our senior team will answer the phone and take your call (and we do this every day).
