Who we are.
We are self organising technologists.  Each of us have the 10x effect and are implementing a new process and methodology called CTRLHack developed by Founder and CTO Damien King.  We mix Australian engineers with the best developers in our Vietnam office. Using CTRLHack we can deliver cost effective solutions without compromising innovation or technology stacks.
What we do.
Review, Advise and Deliver.  We start with a review of current platform and technology structures and goals and then advise on either educating internal teams or delivering with our own CTRLHack process.  We deliver complete Platform solutions on mobile and web and provide near-shore hubs to cost effectively extend development teams.
How we do it.
Our unique approach to delivering complex projects involves both internal, local and nearshore engineers and technologist.  We use minimum documentation and requirement gathering to make CTRLHack more efficient than SCRUM and traditional Agile methodologies.  We also mix Australian engineers with our Vietnam hubs to ensure the latest coding practices and innovative frameworks are being used.
