We develop using an iterative approach, though we are not dogmatic about methodology. Everyone in the company is responsible for coming up with the great ideas that will become part of our product.

We enforce coding standards and have regular code review sessions in order to maintain code quality, share knowledge, and reduce duplication of effort. Our system is in built in JavaScript on the client (for web browsers, tablets, and phones) and on the server (using Node.JS).
