Using Technology for Better Teams
Boost makes web and mobile apps that their client’s customers will love to use. A team of technology professionals designing and building web and mobile apps from their office in central Wellington, they love thinking, collaborating and creating with clients who, like Boost, want to make New Zealand a better place.
And that starts at company level, where Boost has a people-first approach. “Our goal is to build strong teams,” says CEO Nathan Donaldson. “So we provide a workplace that inspires the team and enables them to work on projects they feel passionate about. That’s why we’ve adopted Agile.”
Agile is a software development methodology with an open and consultative approach that fosters the team enivironment. “It’s now the default approach for developers in Silicon Valley because it works,” Nathan says. “Agile blurs the boundaries between managers and employees, and that’s taken us from being a ‘managed’ workplace to a high-involvement, open-management environment that’s significantly enhanced our productivity, engagement, retention and ability to innovate.”
