Team

We, as humanity, now more than ever depend on the Information Technologies (IT) in our everyday operations: work and business, science and exploration, entertainment and fun, health and fitness, family and socializing; i.e. in all elements that make the fabric of lives. Fortunately for us at TIAC, the infiltration of IT into all aspects of living seems to still be at its very beginning, and from this point in time it is difficult to envision the limits of the evolutionary path of IT. Indeed, just look at the amazing business trends in the past decade or two: the trends are ever increasing their pace. This increased dynamics lends a whole lot of opportunities to our business. The point is, there are opportunities all around us, and we have to be just enough innovative to turn these opportunities to our favor.

    About Guru dev.

    Guru is commonly defined as “a person who has a lot of experience in or knowledge about a particular subject”. Our guru developers are people who indeed fit this definition. They have over 10 years of experience. Their knowledge starts with coding and builds up to expert knowledge across programming languages, technologies (.NET, java, PHP etc.), databases, architectures, tools, and methods. They possess in-depth understanding of computer science and its concepts, best-practices, in both practical and theoretical sense. They have the ability to generate new concepts for creative problem solving using latest technologies and trends. They are highly motivated, driven, focused on results, able to communicate their vision and to lead others. Being a guru assumes profound understanding of the project domain, i.e. expert in both technical and domain knowledge. Usually, gurus are not hired from the beginning, but rather they are made through time working long enough on a project.

    About Senior dev.

    Senior developers have over 5 years of experience in software development, and have experience with multiple projects in different areas. This experience has given them opportunity to apply their knowledge and further grow in technologies they specialize in, but also to expand their horizons into new fields. They are independent, self-motivated, capable of solving complex problems and leading smaller teams. It is assumed that they have good analytical skills that allow them to break a problem into manageable pieces, define creative solutions, and generate a list of tasks for a successful implementation of the solutions.

    About Intermediate dev.

    Intermediate level developers have experience of multiple projects, usually within their core knowledge area. They have 3-5 years of work experience. It is assumed that an intermediate developer can receive the task and in the most cases completed it successfully on his own. Intermediate level developers are expected to come out with the concept of the solution in consultations with a senior developer on the project. They are able to work independently on most of the tasks, and with some guidance on more challenging problems. They are eager learners, good team players, but they are also able to give guidance to junior level developers.

  • Testimonial

    About Junior dev.

    Our junior developers have up to 2 years of experience. Their knowledge is usually specialized in one technology but it can range from starting to intermediate level, depending on their previous background. They have sufficient level of skills for implementing basic tasks. Basic tasks include a full description of work, e.g. explained concept, given model, and description of procedures. Being junior however doesn’t mean that they don’t possess relevant knowledge for their job description, just that they need more experience to progress to the next level. The work of a junior developer is overseen by an experience developer who is responsible for setting tasks and accepting completed tasks. They usually have bachelor degrees and work experience of several projects.

    About QA

    Quality assurance engineers working with us are usually experienced business analysts as well. Their job is to make sure that the initial requirements are implemented as defined and that software works as intended. They apply various testing methods depending on the project type, size, complexity and domain. Their personal skills such as orientation to detail, analytical thinking, meticulousness, good communication skills and patience are essential part of their job description.
