About Projectplace

Founded in 1998, Projectplace is one of the world's first SaaS Solutions. The Projectplace System core is written solely in Python and we developers use it heavily in our daily life. Python has played a significant role in our success, giving us a competitive advantage of enabling rapid innovation.


Agile

We use SCRUM as our project methodology in our development cycle. Developers have adopted the XP methodology like Pair Programming, Unit Testing, TDD since 2006 and it fits well with our working culture. We are a value driven company and below are the five core values that are lived in our everyday developer life at Projectplace.


Core values

  • We want to achieve more
  • We are on the same team
  • We are straightforward
  • We are agile
  • We make it easy

 


Initiatives

Initiatives are an integral part of our development team. We believe that any initiative is good and strive hard to make each developer get high on the initiative ladder. We encourage developers to come up with new ideas and we give them their space & time to implement what they think is good for us. Tech talks about any new feature, technology or something relevant to computers is an everyday activity at Projectplace.

We have found that we need to be platform/programming language independent to make our service better. So, the past few years there have been very many innovative projects which were personal initiatives from our developers that have given us the opportunity as a company to gain knowledge in various frameworks and languages such as, Objective C, Flex, GWT, Java for Android etc. Though Python remains to be the predominant language, we try to be neutral in our approach to other languages or frameworks.


Flat organization

We run the development team in Bangalore similar to that in Stockholm. As one of our core value "we make it easy" suggests, we do not have hierarchy at Projectplace. We believe that the best comes out of a person when people are able to talk freely and express their opinion. As opposite to organizations that are process oriented, Projectplace is a people oriented organization.
