We started Propellerhead in 2002 to change the way software services were delivered in New Zealand. Fast-forward a few years and we now work with some of our countries largest entities, building interesting and challenging technology, and helping to improve the lives of millions of New Zealanders every day.
We are a developer led organisation that likes hard problems that require new thinking and technology responses. We are focussed on 'good outcomes quickly’ for our clients. We are a lean/agile development house and fully embrace these methodologies for our projects. We thrive on uncertainty and change. We hate waste and unnecessary lines of code.
Sometimes it is important to test an idea before completely committing to turning it into a production-ready application.
While Continuous Delivery underpins all of our software development services, we also offer in-house development teams the benefit of our hard-won experience.
Above all else, we are software developers. While we try to avoid writing code whenever possible, our promise is the delivery of working software early and often.
Over the past 12 years we have amassed considerable experience delivering software using Agile processes.
We believe in constantly questioning the status quo, finding a better way. We believe developers can be far more productive when given the freedom to lead in the process of crafting solutions. It is less about what they do and more about what they choose not to do when creating a great software solution.
Engineering is not the art of constructing. It is rather the art of not constructing: or, it is the art of doing well with one dollar what any bungler can do with two.
