Industry veterans with decades of experience.
Our model is based on efficiently blending local and remote resources for each project. The makeup of a team for a given project will be decided early on based on the demands of the project.
All projects are led by a core team of Calavista leaders operating from our US offices. Each project has a designated Executive Sponsor, Solutions Director, and Senior Architect from our internal team. We also provide onshore DevSecOps expertise, Business Analysis/Requirements gathering, and UI/UX design as necessary.
Our Solutions Directors lead the project while acting as part of our customers’ teams. They are the Development Manager that works as the liaison between stakeholders and the development team, ensuring that delivery remains on time and on budget. They may wear many hats, working as Product Owner by Proxy, project manager, account manager, and even sales support for our customers as necessary. Essentially, a Development Director who comes with their own team.
Senior Architects are responsible for all of the technical aspects of a project. They work with our customers to define a tech stack appropriate to the project’s needs, and work with DevSecOps to ensure a secure and productive development and deployment process. They also help identify and plan for non-functional requirements such as scaling, performance, internationalization, or multi-tenancy, and are involved in the implementation from data models to code reviews to load testing. Additionally, they work closely with the development team – from interviewing candidates, to onboarding, coaching, and reviewing their work.
Every project is assigned a Calavista senior executive as an Executive Sponsor. They meet regularly with both the customer’s sponsor and the project team to ensure things are running smoothly, and can act as an escalation point when necessary. This contributes to transparency in our development process, as customers always have a direct line to senior leadership at the company.
UX designers focus on user experience, ensuring the flow of the interface is intuitive and logical. UI designers focus on the visual design or aesthetics of a program or website. They can brainstorm with customers about what they want things to look like then work closely with the development team to make it a reality. Together these resources ensure that a program is not only functional, but provides an enjoyable experience for the user.
Our offshore teams are not made up of random developers we find on the internet. Rather, we create teams using our established development partners – people that we know, have worked with before, and trust. We also don’t just provide developers, but create fully rounded teams with Business Analysts, Tech Leads, Requirement Managers, Scrum Masters, and more.
At Calavista, we have spent decades cultivating relationships with development partners all over the world. This gives us a deep bench of talent to work with which provide varying strengths at different price points that can be hand-picked to fit your project. Our Solutions Directors and Senior Architects will personally ensure that you have the best resources available to take on your project.
