We are Romexsoft – Java Development Company from UkraineWritten by Nataliia on June 2nd, 2017
Learn what we stand for as a Java development company from Ukraine. Our vision, mission, and key values our development team shares being summarized.
Software products are not perfect. Web apps are not simple to build. But we strive to change that.
We believe in the brave new world of better apps that go beyond the boldest users’ expectations. We are the team, whose goal is to help other companies become digital-native and unlock their full product potential through Java technology.
Romexsoft is an agile Java software development company from Ukraine with HQ in Lviv and representative offices in London, UK, and Chicago, USA.
Our key areas of expertise are web applications for healthcare providers, innovative software solutions for fintech startups, high-load systems for the media industry and anyone in between looking for a powerful new solution.
Java programming is our core as we believe it is the ultimate language for creating robust, stable, and user-friendly products for a wide variety of niches. 92% of our programmers are Oracle-certified and continuously invest in further self-education.
Romexsoft is built on two key principles:
- Value should always come first.
- People matter the most.
We’ve created a close-knit team environment, where the emphasis is always placed on cooperation. Our developers don’t compete – they work together on shared goals and vision, which is to deliver bespoke apps and software that matches our client’s needs.
The custom Java development services we offer aren’t just about getting the code written.
Sure, our team will work a lot on that. But Romexsoft goal is to create long-standing partnerships.
Working with us means that a large chunk of time will be dedicated to researching your goals, current struggles, and process bottlenecks. We want to understand how your business works and offer a solution that would propel you to the next level.
Outsourcing Java web development to our company means that we will communicate a lot. You’ll get to meet the people working on your product during the regular stand-ups, demo meetings, and quick chats.
That is why we’d like to introduce our company a bit more.
Ground Zero: History of Romexsoft
Back in early 00’, the company’s founder, Serhiy Kozlov, was doing his chores as a hired employee at another offshore software development company.
Software development was just to become a “thing” in Ukraine. We already had the specialists and foreign nearshore investors started to gain the interest in the county…but we were yet to enter the era of digital transformation.
Most business players still preferred manual labor to building “an app for that”. Their business processes were inefficient. The company’s lacked an understanding of how common routines can be optimized or completely eliminated with software.
And the worst thing – product quality lagged behind as vendors failed to decipher and utilize the customer data they already had at the disposal.
Well, some of these issues are nowhere gone today either.
Our Java application development company was created to address these problems.
Our Mission and Vision
Romexsoft was built on the premises that software and web applications should be delightful to use. They should be elegant, efficient and easy-to-navigate. They don’t glitch, crash or abruptly shut down when an important process takes place – for instance, a payment transaction.
We envisioned the world, where common routines are digitized and data is accessible to businesses within a few clicks.
The world, where great products deliver immense value to users.
This vision matches our current mission – to be a company that adds value to each new solution deployed to the market.
The place, where bright minds and bold innovators work together on challenging projects.
And become a trusted consulting partner for our clients to help them reveal their full potential through innovative digital solutions.
This brings us to the next point – how do we get there in terms of development?
The Key Technologies We Use For Our Projects
Great tech stack is the backbone of your product success.
We aim to educate our clients on the pros and cons of different tech stacks in our blog and offer custom options based on the project requirements.
Here are some of core technologies and tools we often use throughout all the projects:
- Java – again, that’s the core of Romexsoft DNA. It’s a robust, elegant, secure and multi-purpose language. Currently, we use Java 8 and anticipating the rollout of Java 9.
- Java Frameworks – Spring MVC, Struts 2, Hibernate and JSF are among the top choices. You can check out a more detailed comparison with expert commentary here.
- Cloud computing – Amazon Web Services (AMS), Microsoft Azure, etc.
- Automated testing tools – Serenity, Appium, Jenkins, Selenium, and Behave are among the primary choices.
- MySQL, MSSQL, and MongoDB – all are superb databases for processing structured and unstructured data.
- Data science technologies – Apache Spark and its modules including Spark MLlib, Spark GraphX, and Spark Streaming. Statistical packages including SPSS, Stata, Eviews, SAS and Statistica.
We have adopted the Agile approach both for development and managerial processes. JIRA is our go-to project management tool and we utilize an automated Continuous delivery model based on two-weeks SCRUM sprints, meaning that we can push new product features every 2 weeks to the production. Our PMs are certified SCRUM masters and master-communicators, who explain complex subjects in plain English.
During the past twelve years, we heavily invested in building a strong company culture, which fosters cooperation, transparency, mutual respect, and proactivity on all levels.
Deliberately, we choose to hire the folks, who share our common team values:
- Critical Thinking
- Design Thinking
- Delivering Value First
These personal values are deeply rooted in the way we do business with our clients.
We don’t work for the sake of billing hours or releasing a “half-baked” product just to sign off the project.
We believe in building long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with our partners and working together towards achieving the common goal. That is to build a delightful, robust product that brings values to users.
Some of our clients have been with our company for almost a decade, visited our premises and recommended us to their network. This speaks a lot about the kind of cooperation we aim to maintain.
Yet, even if you are in for a short-term commitment, Romexsoft will welcome you like an old friend and trusted partner.
Outsourcing software development doesn’t mean that you have no idea what your team is up to.
At Romexsoft, we have built an efficient communication pipeline, which ensures that no detail is left behind. Regular demos, video stand-ups, and regular check-ins are scheduled throughout the entire project.
You will receive access to all the project dashboards to see exactly what’s on agenda and how much work was done so far. No hour is billed without a good reason for that.
Make an Impact
We believe that there’s always a way to do some things better. While we do use the tested and tried approaches, our developers are encouraged to innovate and proactively suggest new ways to develop better software solutions.
Making today better than yesterday is on top of our agenda.
This extends towards supporting continuous education among our employees – paying for additional certifications, professional courses, and conferences. You can always catch up with us on TNW events.
Romexsoft is also an active member of Lviv IT Cluster – the community organization, which drives massive systematic changes in the local business environment within the city and country.
Always a Team
Romexsoft is a people-centered organization. We always place our clients in the spotlight…and act the same with our employees. By continuously investing in our team’s well being, we have managed to gather the best talents, the boldest innovators and the most creative managers under one roof.
Now we are particularly interested to see more women in tech and actively encourage girls to enter the industry. Right now, we have one girl for each three guys at the company and hoping to even the number in a couple of years!
We are Romexsoft – a mature, agile and creative Java development team ready to create a new disruptive project for your business. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
