Redwerk hits 19 years this year

You might be interested to know more about our company,
so here is our own history timeline.


2005

First Steps

June 9, 2005 is the date when Redwerk appeared on the map. That day, we opened our first office in Zaporizhzhia.

With a small team of only five talented developers, including CEO Konstantin Klyagin, the company started working on its first US project for the company Merrimac, which used to supply equipment for NASA space programs including Spirit and Opportunity mission to Mars.

We developed a workflow automation system for Merrimac. And soon after, we started a productive 8-year partnership with the Dutch startup LinkTiger.

Evolving

By the year 2009, we had gathered a strong, coordinated development team. We started out mobile development practices, widened our technology pool, and began gaining credence and recognition. We also added one more long-term partner to the list - Green Valley from the Netherlands. We commerced with the development of Web Intake.

By the end of that year, we had already accumulated a decent portfolio with more than 40 successful projects for US and European clients.

Kyiv Office

Our team was growing month by month and by the end of 2010 it had already comprised 25 software developers. We felt the need to expand even more and opened the second development center in the capital of Ukraine, Kyiv.

That very year we started creating responsive applications with Ruby language. We also added two giant American companies, WorldNow and DotGov, to our clients' list.

Honored by the White House

We continued expanding in the US, got new clients like Hosting.com, etm.at and PageFreezer. Great clients and something even more special happened.

There was an ambitious e-government project called YouTown. Its main idea was to create a comfortable way for citizens to interact with their local governments. It won a prestigious award - Champions of Change from the White House.

LinkTiger, a broken links checking tool built from the ground up by Redwerk, also received an award this year. It was recognized as Best Web Tool by webhostingsearch.com.

Constant Growing

By the beginning of 2013, we had alread established a successful workflow for several dedicated teams in a single company, so completing multiple projects at once became a familiar thing for us. The project that stood out that year was 9yahds' Disaster Recovery Software Solution, too big of an application to be described in a few words, as it contained 8 distinct projects in itself.

10 Years Anniversary

Ten years in software development is a benchmark for success. Many things have changed since 2005 - technologies, workflows, approaches. But the thing that will never change is our genuine commitment to the work we do.

It might be hard to start; however, after ten years of challenging projects, creative solutions, and grateful clients, we dive into each new project with a twofold enthusiasm and dedication.

Although working with machines and coding seemed like a piece of cake, interacting with clients and teammates - that is a whole different story. Reckless judgement, non-constructive criticism, or professional error can shatter the business environment in the team and provoke a conflict.

We know that our efforts bring tangible results and positively change people’s lives. At that time, our team consisted of around 40 ICT experts, yet we needed to expand quickly to cover all the incoming software development requests. We realized that we need a wise, cold-minded HR manager who would step up the hiring process and attract the best engineering talent to our company.

We launched a new independent software testing company - QAwerk - to provide manual and automated testing of web, mobile, desktop software, SaaS products, and games.

Tech events attended: AppsWorld in London, Slush in Helsinki, Bits & Pretzels in Munich, Software Engineering Conference in Kyiv, Startup Weekend in Berlin.

Discovering New Horizons

Not only the team was growing, the number of projects, either. It thus became necessary to hire a PM that would take charge of our team. Furthermore, that was the year when we organized an internal Go-green initiative and have started holding monthly Meetups, where developers keep on sharing their knowledge about the most recent technologies.

Our first multiplayer game Electoral.io was released on the occasion of the US presidential elections that year. And after we've finished EUGI - a project for the European Parliament - without an opportunity to deploy the entire system for debugging in-office, we are 100% ready for the new challenges!

Tech events attended: Web Summit in Lisbon, CES Show in Las Vegas.

Expanding

Since our team was growing - still is - we felt the need to extend our staff with some management positions, hence, the marketing department was established to promote our mature enough company on the raging IT market.

Our technology pool also expanded even further. We released a spam-blocking app called Spamhound, added Australia to the client geography and visited Tech Open Air in Berlin, not as guest, but as an exhibitor this time!

As more and more people started visiting our Dev Meetups, we decided to make even more good use of it. So we ran a few charity initiatives through our Meetups, and there would be more.

Moving Forward

Redwerk’s team of designers, developers, and QA engineers created SpamHound, an SMS spam filtering mobile application. We developed iOS functionality and design and then moved further to the Android version.

Having immense expertise in open source software development, we were hired by a client sponsoring Freenet - open-source software for anonymity, freedom of speech, and censorship resistance on the web. It is a decentralized, scalable P2P network that enables anonymous file sharing, browsing, and creating websites accessible only through Freenet and censorship-free chatting on forums. We are proud of the contributions we’ve made to Freenet so far, such as polished UI, enhanced security, code refactoring, among other improvements.

At Web Summit, we participated in more than 60 meetings in 4 days, which allowed us to gather an enormous volume of important information and gain new inspiring insights from leading tech companies.

We launched the code review as a service. By the end of the year, we had good results: improved 4 processes, found 8 cases of copy-and-paste programming in one project, and detected 23 security vulnerabilities in 5 projects.

Tech events attended: Web Summit in Lisbon, Collision in New Orleans.

Breaking Productivity Records

2019 was a year of travel and awards. The Redwerk team visited Collision in Toronto, where we checked the newest tech cradle and presented our spam-blocking pet project SpamHound.

We were hired by an open source sponsor to develop an anonymous motivational system for saving and publishing files. Since this is a brand new project, we work as an open source core development team. The main goal of the project is to store and distribute files anonymously and securely. This blockchain project offers a new approach to storing socially significant content, and we are sure it will gain popularity and broad adoption upon release.

As we continued increasing our brand recognition and contributing to the IT community, we held 12 Dev Meetups on topics such as Testing Applications on Laravel, Pros of Developer Mode on Android for QA engineers, Parallel Programming in Node.js, among other trending tech issues. Apart from Redwerk’s experts, we invited professionals from other companies to join our cause.

Tech events attended: Collision in Toronto, Estonia E-Residency Meetup in Kyiv, Small Business Expo in New York, Krupa Interface Design Conference in Kyiv.

Per Aspera Ad Astra!

Looking back at over 15 years of Redwerk's history, it was a fantastic journey full of challenges and victories. But we do not stop. We continue to inspire change. This year our team has grown to 70 highly-skilled IT professionals, which makes us genuinely thrilled. We are also delighted that 45% of our staff are tech-savvy women who bring diversity and new vision to our team.

Providing impeccable software quality, consistent delivery, and timely communication, we have earned Microsoft Silver Partnership. Our employees have passed the required exams and skills tests, as well as fulfilled the efficiency requirements.

The coronavirus pandemic made us all stop in the daily rush and look at things differently. But our team started to work even more efficiently: 17 new projects, 4 tech events attended, and 10 new employees!

Our founder Konstantin Klyagin was accepted into Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community for world-class CIOs, CTOs, and technology executives.

Tech events attended: GFiT online, TechCrunch Disrupt online, Bits & Pretzels Founders Festival online, London Tech Week online.

Thriving

2021 brought a steady influx of new projects, incredible online and offline events, new awards recognizing our software development and testing expertise, and a debut of our content on TechCrunch.

As for our partnerships, we started working with HireQuest, North America’s staffing giant. We love celebrating our wins, so we threw an impromptu lobster party in our office in Zaporizhia.

We developed custom, enterprise-grade inventory management and resource planning solutions for Mass Movement, a US-based fitness equipment provider and assembler, which was soon acquired by J.B. Hunt, an international transportation and logistics company.

KillerBee was another successfully delivered project developed from the ground up. We helped KB&G, a leading New Zealand consultancy for construction material producers, build a smart pricing solution, increasing quote generation by 90%.

We arranged a QA brunch in our new loft-styled office in Kyiv, which attracted 200 offline and online participants. We planned our first summer corporate party abroad and flew to Side, Turkey, for sightseeing, sunny beaches, and ultimate fun.

Tech events attended: ContainerDays in Hamburg, AgileTD Open Air in Cologne, Agile Testing Days in Chicago, TestCon in Vinius , The National Software Testing Conference in London.

Showing resilience

On February 24th, 2022, Russia started a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. During the first days of the war, our teammates were relocating to safe areas within Ukraine and abroad, such as Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary, Portugal, the UK, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, and Sri Lanka.

On the fourth day after the invasion, 40% of teammates showed up for work, and in two months, we fully restored our pre-war capacity. When everyone was laying off employees, we were hiring and strengthening our team with new tech talents and achieved a record-high team size.

Two of our teammates joined the Armed Forces of Ukraine to fight against the invaders, whereas the rest of the team actively volunteered and donated to numerous nonprofits. Redwerk alone donated about $200,000 to support our defenders and crisis relief efforts.

The years of building trustful client relations paid off: we’ve preserved all our contracts and even managed to forge 8 new partnerships. Despite blackouts and frequent air raid alerts, Ukrainians, including our teammates, showed unequivocal resilience by continuing to deliver services, buying services to support our economy, and living normal lives.

Our Redwerk team got featured by reputable global media like VentureBeat, Entrepreneur, Solution Suggest, ComputerWeekly, IdeaMensch, Website Planet, and Forbes.

Tech events attended: The Next Web in Amsterdam, Blockchain Expo in London, Web Summit in Lisbon.

Keep on fighting

We wish the war was over, but it’s not, and we Ukrainians keep on fighting to live in a free and democratic country.

Our Redwerk team stays strong, helping existing and new clients build quality, well-tested software. We also focused on developing our own products: we made Android Bug Hunter truly feature-rich, released an alpha version of Tingl, our revolutionary web3 messenger, and released one more Telegram bot – MyRepoBot, making it easy to receive Bitbucket notifications.

Our business endurance and zest for keeping Ukraine’s economy alive raise the interest of international media. Redwerk got featured by The Press , a leading news outlet in New Zealand, and BBC, the world’s largest broadcaster.

The projects we contribute to receive prestigious awards. We became Vega Awards Gold Winner entering the competition with the Kooky project, #1 digital cup system in Switzerland.

Living amidst a full-scale war requires special attention to employee well-being. We’ve allocated monthly wellness stipends to encourage our teammates to care about their physical and mental health.

Tech events attended: Paris Blockchain Week , World Economic Forum in Davos, Barcelona Bridal Fashion Week , Code Europe in Warsaw.
