We are proud to sponsor such a great event like Voxxed Days Belgrade! People gathered around this conference are great and we are sure the conference will rock. This is definitely a go-to place for software engineers in the Balkans!

Voxxed team has asked us for a short interview about what we like to do. You can find the original post on Voxxed blog or you can continue reading here. :)

The Interview

How interview looks

Everybody in our team strives to understand the product and the business behind it. That way we are goal oriented and are able to connect better with what needs to be achieved. Asking many questions is in the core of our process. UX is important for us and if we don’t have good understanding about target users, we do not proceed forward.

Focusing on the usability of an application is one of the practices that is undervalued and overlooked. Design is not just how software looks, it is how it feels and how it works all together. UX practices are consisted of constant measuring and analysis in order to help people build products in an evidence based discipline. You directly apply what you have learned on the field to your solution. Satisfaction you have when you see how satisfied your users are is priceless.
Branko Tomić
Lead UX Engineer

Our UX process is outlined in one of our posts. In short, it consists of: user interviews, personas, user journeys, prototyping and validation cycles.

Software development follows the practice mentioned above. Our team seeks the best technology to solve the need.

Jovan Erčić
Lead Software Engineer
Message passing software architectures and functional programming paradigm help us create simple and scalable solutions which we can deliver quickly and are highly maintainable. Immutable state that is built as one of the core principles in functional programming helps us make cleaner solutions which leads to smarter decisions and time to think more about the architecture before writing a single line of code.

Our toolbelt contains Scala, Clojure and frameworks/libraries like React.js, Akka, Vert.x; which support the outlined paradigm.

We would love to talk with you! Drop us a line at hello@spicefactory.co and meet us at the conference!
