"A friend of mine who works for your company recommended you to me." This is one of those nice phrases that we often hear from job seekers. And for good reason! When you join us, you will immediately receive a detailed tutorial in the form of regulations that describe the entire work process in detail. This helps you get up to speed quickly, simplifies the onboarding process, and allows you to focus on the technical aspects of the job.

The PDP (Personal Development Plan), developed by experienced colleagues with your input, includes practical tasks and theoretical study. Completing PDP is challenging and requires time, but it effectively increases the level of expertise, which provides grounds for a review of salary.

Our thoughtfully designed offices blend comfort and collaboration. High-quality equipment, ample amenities, and a supportive team culture ensure a positive and productive work environment.

On it you will see our various merch, from pens to cozy sweatshirts, created to make being part of the abz.agency team is even more enjoyable. What makes our merch truly cool is the close attention we pay to design and quality.

Why invest in branded products, you ask? Well, there's more to it than just putting our logo on a pen or mug. It's about creating a tangible connection between our team members and the company. From the first day of internship our soon to be colleagues are met with a warm welcome in the form of branded products. It all starts with essentials like a signature mug and pen, and from there their collection gradually expands to cover the full range of our offerings.

Reflecting on the results of the New Year holidays we remember not only about joys and fun, but also about those who are not able to take care of themselves.

This year we are especially proud that our company has once again become part of a charitable history filled with care and attention to the wellbeing of our furry little friends - animals. This is not the first time we have supported animal shelters, providing not only the necessary medicine, but also food, as well as various accessories that facilitate the comfort of our beloved four-legged friends. The welfare of homeless animals is a shared responsibility, and we find gratification in being able to enhance their lives, even if only in small ways.

This year, our client (M.R.), a man with a big heart and a deep sense of responsibility to society, joined our philanthropic efforts. In such difficult times, he actively supports our country, participating in large-scale charity events and sending various medical and other assistance to those in need.

This time, thanks to M.R., we were able to provide significant assistance to those who cannot ask for help for themselves, but deeply feel the impact of our assistance. Together we create bright stories of charity, reminding us that each of us can spread kindness and care around us.

On these New Year's days, our company has additional reasons for celebration! We extend our heartfelt congratulations to three remarkable individuals who have successfully completed their first year with us.

This past year presented them with numerous challenges, opportunities for acquiring new knowledge, and important achievements. At the beginning of their journey with our company, they overcame the internship, discovering many new aspects of their profession. Today, we proudly say that they have seamlessly integrated into our team, actively contributing to the company's progress and contributing to its success.

As our colleagues embark on the next phase of their professional journey, we wish them continued achievements and new heights in their respective fields. May this initial year of collaboration serve as a foundation for their future success, growth, and advancement. Let every day bring joy from creativity and satisfaction from their work life.

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in advance! We're excited to share some updates with you.

Gaika, our feline colleague, will be celebrating her one-year anniversary in December, marking a year of residing and "working" in the K1 office (our first Kyiv office). Gaika stands out as one of our top guys, practically making the office her home. She diligently attends all meetings, maintains order, and, at times, it feels as though visitors are stepping into her domain, with her assuming the role of the house's master. Gaika follows her own schedule: playful mornings with girls in the team, daytime naps on a bar stool, and the CEO ensures she gets treats before wrapping up the day. On weekends, a member of the team always drops by for a visit.

In line with the festive spirit, we've unveiled a fresh batch of Christmas holiday stickers that people are enthusiastically using everywhere! The popularity of our stickers is heartening, and we're committed to creating more sets in the upcoming year.

As we approach the holiday season, please note that from December 25, 2023, to January 1, 2024, our company will be on a Christmas and New Year holiday break. We'll be back on January 2, energized and ready to continue delivering top-notch service to our clients. After all, that's why the company exists—to ensure our clients are satisfied with the results obtained. Results with the required quality and on time.

And the best strategy is preparation! With such equipment, we are ready for various challenges, and our clients and guys will not have to worry about possible interruptions in work or life. After all, in a world of change, it is better to be one step ahead, and we have already implemented this step-by-step strategy.

Today, we're excited to share a significant and joyful moment in our team – the celebration of our Lead Project Manager's nine-year anniversary in our company!

Over this span, our long-time guy has evolved from a talented developer into an inspiring leader, overseeing a team of PMs. Not only a seasoned project manager capable of handling complex tasks, but our Lead PM is also a genuine team leader. This year, he successfully led a team of 26 individuals, achieving impressive results that continue to satisfy clients with top-notch quality and professionalism.

Beyond professional accomplishments, it's crucial to highlight our Lead PM's exceptional human qualities. Empathy and concern for colleagues are integral to his character, translating from mere words to a way of life.

Embracing Winter in Style: Warm Offices and New T-Shirts!

As the crisp winter breeze begins to weave its way through the city streets and the festive spirit settles in, our offices are ready for a season of warmth. We believe that the approaching cold weather should never dampen the spirits of our hardworking team.

That's why we've decided to please the guys with our brand-new T-shirts, featuring a daring design that reflects the innovative and dynamic spirit of our team. These T-shirts are not just work attire; they are ideal for both a casual walk and for meeting with friends.

So, as the winter season approaches, our team is ready to defy the chill. With warm offices, bold T-shirts, and a festive spirit that permeates every corner, we're not just weathering the winter – we're embracing it in style!

Read—therein lies the strength. No GPT chat can give you as much as a "conversation" with a good author during the process of working on their book.

In our company, in addition to the PDP (Personal Development Plan), there is also mandatory reading of books. Our electronic library, plus audiobooks, comprises more than 150 books. Some of the essential books are also available in the office. The books cover various topics, with three mandatory books for all guys. After that, the Project Manager recommends reading more specialized literature. The books cover areas such as business analysis, marketing, sales, negotiation, management, and customer relations. For example, the HR manager reads a book on PHP 8, Project Manager reads a book on sales, and Office Manager reads books on management. This approach allows for broadening horizons, expanding knowledge boundaries (both hard and soft skills), and providing guys with the opportunity to relax while gaining insights into the challenges or advantages of other professional domains. Guys are encouraged to reflect on the lessons learned and apply them to their work.

All guys write reports on the chapters they read every day. Each person reads one chapter per day, taking no more than 7-15 minutes. Afterward, it is mandatory to write a report on what was read. The report format depends on the book the guy is working on. For example, if it's a book on sales, the report should briefly cover the chapter's content and how the information can be applied to work, perhaps as soon as the next day. For technical books, guys should write about what was studied, tested, and where the knowledge can be applied.

If it's a book like "Will" by Will Smith, the report may look like this:
- Book: "Will"
- Chapter 10: "Alchemy"
- I admit that the concept of the universe as a deity resonates with me. I consider myself an atheist, but when I reflect on my journey, the series of events and coincidences—can it all be just random? Of course, it can, but it's easier for a person to live believing in some purpose. I don't reject the idea that it can give me strength. I remember how I joined abz.agency, broke and in an unfamiliar city, Bila Tserkva. In those early months of business struggles, everyone needed a job. I found a vacancy, took the test, even though I thought the competition was tough, with experienced people who would surpass me. But I just moved my stone. The concept of the universe aligns with me, but it doesn't provide a finished product; it gives chances. I need to make an effort, focus on goals, and achieve results. It doesn't hand out success; it needs to be earned.

This week, our company is delighted to commemorate several joyful and significant events tied to the work anniversaries of our valued guys. Congratulations to the teams at two Kyiv offices (K2 and K5_3): QA (3 years), Backend (2 years), and Frontend (1 year). Each individual has navigated a unique path, attaining personal victories and accumulating valuable experience in their respective fields. While acknowledging these achievements, we encourage everyone to maintain the momentum.

Let your professional enthusiasm be boundless, and may your eagerness to acquire new knowledge and apply it in practice never wane. We extend our heartfelt wishes for continued success, job satisfaction, financial growth, and, undoubtedly, an everlasting wellspring of inspiration! May every workday bring you joy in your endeavors. Thank you for your invaluable contributions to our shared endeavors, and may only bright prospects and new triumphs await you in the future!

Happy 18th birthday to you, abz.agency!

Since the first day of the company, we always had a desire to make complex, custom and non-standard solutions. To work with understanding clients who are ready to work with us and pay for the company's services. It's always difficult, but isn't it interesting?! If it would have been simple, everyone would have gotten bored of it long ago.

We thank each other for trying, learning new things and growing. Some of us are already teaching and helping others while still diligently reaching for new heights of knowledge.

Our company survived the hard years of 2008, 2014 and 2022 thanks to the principle of stability: smooth growth, always stable salaries and personal growth within the team.

abz.agency grows, but our core pillars remain unchanged:

  • - Our goal: Every one-two days our clients receive complete functional blocks. Our clients receive the project exactly according to the PRD
  • - Our mission: To deliver projects on time with required quality

Thank you to each and every one of you! After all, the company is the guys (and girls) who work in it. Once again, thank you everyone for your work and keep going!

P.S. Thank you everyone for self organizing a wonderful gift for ourselves - massage chair for one of our offices.

Our designers have unleashed a fresh series of fantastic stickers. Showcasing none other than our beloved office mascot, our cat Gaika! (in honor of the localized version of Gadget Hackwrench, from “Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers”)

Gaika, our office cat, is the heart and soul of our team. She is a permanent participant of all our meetings, conducting her daily inspections of all office premises and keeping order. She knows that by the end of the day there’s always a tasty treat from CEO waiting for her. During lunch break she has her scheduled play sessions with QA girls and on weekends she can always expect a lot of guests who come to feed and play with her. She always sends off the last person leaving the office and checks if he turned off all the lights and equipment :)

These stickers capture hilarious moments from her everyday adventures in the office, mirroring the unique experiences we all share in our workplace. They don't just adorn our team's gadgets and gear; they infuse a dose of humor and individuality into their work accessories.

Our trusty mascot is all geared up for more office escapades and hard work, serving as our lucky charm. Join us in celebrating the quirky spirit of our team and the essence of individuality with our new stickers! 😸💼

Gaika is the living soul of the K1 office and team as a whole.

Recently we celebrated a special day for our company and our colleagues in T1. It feels like just yesterday we were celebrating the opening of this office, but time has flown by, and now we're marking our colleague's two-year work anniversary here.

Since the day we opened our office in Estonia, he quickly became an essential part of our team. These two years have seen him not only grow professionally but also become an integral member of our team. We want to express our appreciation for his dedication, hard work, and creative problem-solving skills. He doesn't just write code; he crafts user experiences that our customers love.

Thank you for being a part of our journey, for making our projects better, and for inspiring us to reach new heights. We can't wait to see what surprises you have in store for us in the future and the exciting new projects you'll bring to life.

Congratulations on your two-year work anniversary, and may this adventure continue to be long, thrilling, and successful!

We're gearing up for the winter season. This month, we've reinvested in our office infrastructure and equipment to ensure uninterrupted operations.

To start, we've acquired a new diesel generator, the Kraft&Dele KD199 (18/19 kW), which will provide continuous power to office K1. While it won't completely cover the office's power requirements (which exceed 32 kW), it will enable us to run all essential equipment, lighting, the kitchen, ventilation, and an electric boiler for office heating. We also have plans for further upgrades to the electrical wiring and electrical panel.

In addition, we're in the process of installing a gasoline generator, the Senci SC17000R (9/10 kW), in office K5_3. We're ensuring a reliable backup power system for this office, allowing us to power essential equipment such as lighting, the kitchen, and an electric boiler for heating. Similar to office K1, we will also be enhancing the electrical infrastructure with upgrades to wiring and the electrical panel.

Lastly, for office K2, where generator installation isn't feasible, we're setting up an EcoFlow Delta PRO (3.6/4 kW) to maintain uninterrupted power supply, mainly for lighting and workstation outlets.

Please note that office K4 was fully equipped for uninterrupted operation last winter with a generator that meets all the office's needs, including the electric boiler. Office K3 enjoys a permanent power supply through a backup city line.

We're ready to face this winter head-on, ensuring that our offices remain functional and comfortable.

Today we congratulate one of our Project Managers on his 5th anniversary with the company and want to celebrate a truly remarkable journey of development, growth and leadership.

Once again we have a reason to congratulate our incredible team members. But today we are happy to congratulate not one or two, but six guys who, together with us, have reached the first and important stage in their career - the first year of work in the company!

During this time, they have not only embraced the values and culture of our company, but also acquired the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in their fields.

It is always a pleasure to watch the professional and personal growth of a person, and the ability to turn difficulties into opportunities is always a very good incentive and example for the rest of the guys in the team.

Let them please you and ensure safety on the road. Of course we wish you further improving your skills and development as a QA specialist.

May the next chapter of your career be filled with exciting opportunities, constant learning and new horizons. Keep taking on challenges because they are the path to growth.

This year there were around 5000 attendees at the iForum 2023 conference (Kyiv, August 10). It's been a long time, a very long time, since such events were held in Ukraine. Honestly, at times, we even lacked such conferences in peaceful and healthy times. You come and see that your company is not alone in the IT field. You witness and hear how many companies and their guys face everyday challenges. At iForum, everyone shares their experiences in solving various work challenges. Such emotions help propel us forward.

Usually, I'd like to talk about the presentations and the major global companies that were represented. But this time, I just want to say a huge thank you for the event itself. For the opportunity to feel alive at a large-scale offline gathering. It doesn't matter at all what the presentations and topics were. What matters is that people came and held this wonderful event in the current times.

Of course, we heard many interesting insights that can be applied to work and self-development in the IT field. We are truly thankful to everyone who organized this event and to abz.agency for providing the opportunity to attend and enjoy the atmosphere.

Rarely do you receive such uplifting words from guys. These words serve as motivation to persevere through all the challenges: losses, expenses, difficulties, and fatigue. Despite the adversities, we continue to move forward, drawing strength from every step. This journey offers opportunities for growth, learning, and improvement. Our progress is fueled by the dedication of our team, who work on themselves, demonstrating what's achievable under strong leadership, discipline, and adherence to regulations. Brick by brick, line by line, project by project, we march ahead with willpower, energy, and enthusiasm.

---

“This month I celebrated my anniversary with the company. And for a whole month, I thought about what to write. I decided to focus on personal growth. During this time, I became a completely different person, a better version of myself. I became stronger, tougher, more resilient.

I revised my values and found new ones. I clearly understand what I want from life. For the first time, I want to brag about my work to friends, although not everyone will understand why it's so cool. It was an interesting and complex transformation.

I would like to thank you for seeing how you can conduct your business, what real development is. I definitely feel that my ambitions have also grown and the maximum that I can achieve has become much greater, it is worth a lot. I saved, well, 5 years in the context of understanding how the world works.

Well, I would also like to emphasize that my life has become much more comfortable and interesting. Before I started working at abz.agency, it was a problem for me to get a subscription somewhere, buy a book, or some kind of course, all this is money. My workplace was not the best and most comfortable.

Now I live a completely different life with a lot of opportunities. I don't want to stop there, it will only get better, but I know how to appreciate what I have and know how to be grateful for it, so thank you for your contribution to my life.”

Today we want to share a small, but pleasant rule, that we have in our company's regulations. As a token of appreciation for the outstanding work of our female team members, we are offering them the opportunity to enjoy a manicure featuring our company logo—all expenses covered by the company!

This wonderful perk not only allows our girls to proudly represent our company at the office but also wherever they go. It's a fantastic way to showcase our company's spirit and the incredible team that drives its success.
At our company, we believe that the little things can make a big difference. We want to show our gratitude and pamper our female guys who play an essential role in making our workplace so special.

We're excited to share that those who've been following our page already know about our beloved pet cat, Gadget Hackwrench, who has made one of our Kyiv offices her cozy home. All the guys love and take care of her, and the cat is also a bit of a “rescue ranger”, bringing heaps of joy and positivity to our work environment just like the spirited heroine from "Chip and Dale".

Recently, our creative designer had an absolutely delightful idea to inject some extra fun into our corporate merch. The result? Adorable and hilarious Gadget Hackwrench stickers that perfectly capture her wide range of emotions and antics as a "real guy"!

We've distributed these stickers to all the members of our team. It's heartwarming to see everyone decorating their work gadgets with these cute stickers, spreading smiles wherever they go!

In today's fast-paced business world, where technological advances and market dynamics are constantly evolving, it is essential for guys to constantly improve their skills and stay ahead of the curve. There are many ways to grow professionally, one of the best and most effective ways is to read books. Working with literature not only expands knowledge, but also develops the necessary business skills that can help guys reach new heights.

Therefore, our company has its own library, which for several years has collected a large number of books for the professional and personal development of guys. Upon joining our team, an guy is required to read several books, and they also have the freedom to choose the ones that are most relevant to their needs. We read books thoroughly, conducting detailed analysis and evaluation. Each person then writes a report summarizing their reading and provides ideas on how the concepts and insights from the books can be applied in practice. This process provides a highly valuable and practical experience for our guys.

Thanks to reading and discussing books, guys' horizons expand, communication skills increase, critical thinking develops, and emotional intelligence improves. Cultivating a habit of reading enables guys to navigate change, identify more opportunities, and maintain relevance and expertise in their respective industries.

We invite those who think in a similar direction to our team. You can find out all the details by writing to us by email: hr@abz.agency

When you feel the pressure build up, or you need a little break to refocus, simply reach out to one of these colorful balls and squeeze it lightly.

Today we will share with you a small update in our offices. We recently decided to liven up office life a bit and now we have a small corner of the "underwater world" - an aquarium.

Everyone knows that according to psychologists, watching marine life is a great way to relax, relieve tension and emotional exhaustion. However, it turned out that it is also a very useful “tool” for health. The aquarium is an excellent natural air humidifier and it reduces the number of allergens in the room. Scientific research that observing marine life for 15 minutes helps to restore the visual muscles and removes the negative impact of monitors and gadgets on our vision.

So we hope that our new inhabitants will feel good and comfortable with us and we will have a long and mutually beneficial cooperation)

Well, we also invite you to join our team of developers in various areas. To find out more about our vacancies, please email us: hr@abz.agency

We are always happy to share good news, and today is the day to do it! We have opened a new office in Kyiv - K4.

K4 is situated on the left bank area of Kyiv, making it exceptionally convenient for guys residing on this side of Dnipro or utilizing the corresponding metro line. Moreover, the office boasts a favorable location in proximity to the metro station and other transportation options, ensuring comfortable commuting for its staff.
Before starting work, the office was freshly renovated, everything necessary for the comfort and efficient work of the team was purchased.

Heating system is autonomous at K4, ensuring a consistent temperature and comfortable microclimate within the premises. To further enhance the reliability of operations, a generator and Starlink were also installed, offering uninterrupted connectivity and power supply during blackouts. As a result, all guys can work with maximum stability and efficiency.

So, K4 is already actively working, and we are moving on to our next plans to expand even more. If you want to join our team, please email: hr@abz.agency

Who works well - rests even better. But seriously, now we have a really cool device in the K1 office - a massage chair. We have always wanted to get something similar for the team, so that everyone can relax physically for a while, slow down a very active pace during the working day and bring a little benefit to their body.

In our offices there are a lot of activities for the team to enjoy in their free time: board games, hoverboard, football table and air hockey which are now even more expanded with the addition of this wonderful “machine” for relaxing and rehabilitating the muscles of the whole body. The chair not only helps to relieve muscle tension from sitting at the desk, but also helps to improve posture, circulation and strengthen the muscular corset.

So we invite our guys to take some time for themselves and their health. And anyone who would like to join our team can send an email to hr@abz.agency.

Today we will show you a little backstage from our new office (K3 - our third office in Kyiv), which is almost ready for launch and starts working from February 13th. We tried to take every possible detail into consideration to make it fit our standards.

K3 is a 7-minute walk from the Taras Shevchenko metro station and is located in a brand new Business Center (it was built in 2019). Given the realities of today and the difficult situation with power supply the location has an advantage of stable power supply, autonomous boiler room, elevators and a 24-hour security post.

Interior of the office is decorated in a common corporate loft style, like other offices of the company.
The office has done the following:

  • - Loft style walls and ceiling (exposed concrete)
  • - Kitchen (new Krups coffee machine, 10l kettle, 7-stage cleaning filter, refrigerator, microwave are waiting for our guys)
  • - Bar counter for 6 persons
  • - Toilet and shower (This is a bonus for those who like to ride a bike to work for example)
  • - Ventilation (exhaust) of all rooms
  • - Preparation for future supply ventilation
  • - Meeting room for 3 and 6 people
  • - Redundant wiring for PPS EcoFlow
  • - Individual lighting of workplaces (as in all offices)
  • - Casers, Ajax alarm and electronic lock

The first 4 guys will already enter the office on the 13th to launch the office. But in our new space there are still free equipped places.

To join our team, please contact hr@abz.agency

We are excited to announce a new fluffy addition to our team! Although he may still be a junior member, he is already making his presence known with his diligent attendance of all meetings and stand-ups. He can often be found purring approvingly as he lounges beside the speaker. So, everyone is happy to share all their knowledge.

Our office manager found him on a cold winter day warming up under her car in the parking lot outside the office and with the approval of management, we were able to welcome him into our office. We quickly provided all the necessary supplies and our team members even brought in some fun toys for him to play with. We're excited to have him as part of our team from now on!

We gave him a nostalgic name which means a small piece of charcoal which is the same as the name of the Donetsk-Kyiv passenger train which is symbolic of connection to our roots.

Last week, we bought a gasoline generator for our K1 office (Kyiv) to ensure steady operation regardless of circumstance. Our foreman invited electricians and they rewired our electrical panel to include an automatic generator/city switch for electricity.

Now we have a specific algorithm for blackouts:

  • - When there is no electricity for a relatively short time, first we use EcoFlow battery and a dedicated optic cable internet provider which works during most outages.
  • - If there is no electricity for more than 4 hours, we connect the generator and StarLink as a reserve option.

    We have all bases covered, so we can work without any disruptions both during scheduled 2-4 hour rolling blackouts or autonomously by alternating between using EcoFlow battery and a generator to power the office and charge the EcoFlow battery.

    There are no emergencies for us, just organizational issues to solve so we can continue our work on schedule.

On 8th of November we will be celebrating the 17th anniversary of our founding! 🔥 🎁 🎂 We remember Financial crisis of 2008, War in Donbass of 2014, War in Ukraine of 2022 but we continued to work and provide quality services no matter the situation. We pay stable and predictable pay for our team and do everything to develop them both professionally and personally. We do all of this and more for our clients!

With us you can always count on stability and quality! Come and see for yourself 😀

28 October 2022

We wish everyone a happy halloween 🎃🎃🎃! We already thematically decorated our offices for an extra spooky atmosphere. Frequent rolling blackouts this week also helped to add spookiness, but we fight darkness with organization.

Our clients ask us how we deal with blackouts and other unpredictable situations in a way that they feel no difference at all while working with us. The answer is simple, but challenging for many companies:  preparation and reinvestment in all necessary hardware. We work only on MacBook PRO, their battery is enough for 6-10 hours, we also distribute LTE via mobile hotspots in an organized manner, so the only inconvenience is that the guys do not have an opportunity to make coffee : )

USPS has the motto: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” our version for this year would sound like this “Neither financial crisis, nor threat of war or total blackouts will prevent us from delivering your project on time and with the required quality.”

If you want a stable outsourcing partner who you can always rely on, just send an email to info@abz.agency and our client managers will be happy to walk you through all the steps to start.

Yesterday, at our weekly meeting with PMs and the company management, it was announced that our Kyiv offices had physically run out of space for new guys. So, the management plans to open a 3rd office in Kyiv and considering the location of the other two offices, it would be convenient to cover the 3rd part of Kyiv.

Previously, offices in Kyiv were opened on the left and right banks of the Dnieper. Office 3 will be on the right bank of the Dnieper, but will be geographically shifted further from another one to make it more convenient for some of the guys. Kyiv is a big city and if you can reduce the daily commute from 1-1.5 hours to 15-30 minutes for guys, this is a huge bonus.

We still have spots open in Tallinn, so the HR department won't have an opportunity to rest yet ;)

In the past we have had successful iOS and Android app development branches, but due to drop in wider demand for app development we ultimately decided to close them down. However, some of our dedicated long term clients wanted to keep all of their development efforts with us and needed to spread their offering both to Android Play Store and iOS App store.

After research we found that React Native fits best for this task: it allows us to develop native apps for both iOS and Android based on a single JavaScript codebase (we can even reuse some parts of the code from the front-end part of the website). This allowed us to quickly close this gap in projects where it was necessary while being lean and flexible as a company.

Currently we are actively expanding our React Native development capabilities by improving our frontend developers skill sets. We’ve developed a set of individual tasks within our PDP (Personal Development Plan) program. Developer, who completes all tasks, acquires all necessary skills to bridge the differences between working with React.js for web development and React Native development.

If you have a multiplatform idea we will be glad to help you bring it to life, just send an email to info@abz.agency and our client managers will be happy to help you get started.

This week in our T1 (Tallinn) office we celebrated the 4th anniversary of our Lead PM joining our company. He received a small but very fun gift of a DJI Mini 2 quad copter.

We are truly grateful for all your work! There were many difficulties on your way, but a smile, enthusiasm and perseverance allowed you to find the strength in yourself, while remaining a gentle and pleasant person. We wish you less ASAP moments in your work and personal life ;)

Last Saturday, we all met at the K1 office which is our left bank Kyiv office. Everyone arrived at an agreed time by 11 a.m. and the office manager quickly distributed tasks among the team. Everyone received a pair of gloves, a rag, detergent and a respirator. We turned on the music and got into cleaning.

Walls were wiped from the dust that had accumulated over time. All surfaces were dusted: cabinets, shelves, tables, appliances, etc. Other guys were painting the walls to freshen up the white paint. Then the team split up. Some of the guys went to wash the huge panoramic windows, but don't worry the office is on the first floor. The second team started cleaning the floor. We all took a break together and shared hot pizza! Around 6 pm, the work was done. Thanks to all the guys who came to help with the office voluntarily and build stronger bonds. The office shines more than ever!

At the end I heard a reply from one of the girls on our team: "You are welcome, but we did it for ourselves." These are the best words that summarize an idea of subbotnik which is a tradition of voluntary work for yourself and community. Our CEO believes that there is no better team building than working together with everyone. We do everything with utmost attention to quality, even washing the floor ;)

One of our Kyiv offices had two simple glass meeting rooms. This week our brand pattern and logo accentuated the loft style of the office. Now everything is complete exactly like we planned in our 3D model.

As with any project, the details are everything. Our task is to create a PRD (Product Requirements Document) that describes the project down to the smallest detail and takes into consideration all features and specifics.

We focus on developing complete projects exactly according to PRD and mockups from start to finish. More details here https://abz.agency/product-requirement-document/

It’s nice when the upper management works closely with the team to solve any ongoing issues. Let me tell you a short story.

A year has passed since we moved to a large and beautiful loft-style office on the left bank of the Dnieper in Kyiv. At that time our CEO has designed and implemented his own office in a spacious room, with floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows.

Now two offices in Kyiv have run out of space to accommodate our constantly growing team. Today we had a meeting discussing how we can solve this. Our CEO gathered all the project managers and the office manager to show a solution: an updated 3D model of his personal office with 6 comfortable workplaces. In the meantime he will move to work in a small, modest warehouse.

This is how management should always act:

  • - Be with the team.
  • - Work directly with guys.
  • - Always be one message away from clients.

Interested in trying to work with us?  Just send an email to and our client managers will be happy to consult you.

Tallinn. Office started.

We are actively expanding our team both in Tallinn as well as Kyiv to accommodate ever growing demand from our clients who need more resources for their groundbreaking projects.

Tallinn, Estonia. Our new office “T1”. Located downtown, in the business center. Soon it will be ready to accommodate 12 comfortable workspaces with 2 additional rooms for meetings and recreation. It has a big kitchen and a bar counter that can be used for relaxation, meetings, lunches or by its primary purpose : )

We just received the keys to the office. The team works on necessary supplies, contracts and other things while our CEO as always works on the interior design and 3D modeling. We are all full of anticipation and busy with the whole process of opening a new office. When everything is ready, we will share a photo of the new office.

We had been preparing for a long time to implement internal training presentations in our company to give everyone a format to share their expertise. For the 3rd month now, we arrange mini presentations every Tuesday at lunchtime. Some of the guys are preparing presentations on brand new technologies that we have not adopted yet while others use this opportunity to further explore current already implemented technologies, patterns and approaches.

This allows all the guys that focus on specific areas to learn something new outside of it within our company. As people say they need to “just reach out their hand” and knowledge is already there. Our guys have a lot of expertise in the company and are always happy to share with colleagues.

Based on the results of 3 months of presentations, we have implemented quite a lot of changes in our current projects. Additionally, this allows the speaker to influence others and contribute to the training of colleagues. Make a contribution to the company and projects that are currently under development.

15 Jun 2022

We are growing fast! There are only four workplaces left across two Kyiv offices, no more room to fit any more people for now. But not for long, we plan to recruit new guys to fill these spots and expand even further by opening a 3rd office in Kyiv or in western Ukraine.

Our clients often have reservations about jumping into Dedicated Team format before they know us well and fully understand the value that we can bring to their business. This is completely normal and we always encourage well thought out and informed decision making, because it builds a stable foundation for long term cooperation.

In this case our clients start from a smaller scale (120-320 hours) self-contained tasks like a landing page or specific module development on WPE basis to get a feel for working with our team and then transition to a full dedicated team with weekly output equal or exceeding the total scope of the initial trial project.

If you have any questions about working with us just send an email to and our client managers will be happy to help you. More info you can get here https://abz.agency/dedicated-team/

Image text

31 May 2022

Dedicated team format fits best for your new business, startup or alr active project that needs to be redesigned. Just choose a pace at which you want to move in the development within a range of 120 to 480 hours per week and we are ready to go. We will ensure the stability and predictability of the development speed chosen by you throughout the entire time of cooperation (often from 1 to 5 or even up to 7+ years).

Get your own fully staffed IT department and move confidently at your chosen development speed. More details here: https://abz.agency/dedicated-team/

No matter what anyone says, it’s still nice to get together in the meeting room and discuss a project. Of course, not everyone can fit in the same room or even in the same office, the guys are spread across 3 offices. But the face to face joint work creates a certain mood, one can say a state of mind - which drives to create. This energy unites and inspires. It gives you a feeling of belonging, that you are not alone.

The company is growing and developing. Join us and let’s grow together https://abz.agency/team-and-careers

On May 16th we are planning to reopen both offices in Kyiv (on the left and right Dnipro bank) and go back to our usual workflow.

The nature of Ukrainian Carpathians is very beautiful, but I still long for the big city atmosphere. Can’t wait to resume an active schedule of a city dweller. Work during the day, self development and rest in the evening. The weekend is also always full of things to do.

Nothing is better than a trusted team and comfortable workplace, even our office walls help. Everyone anticipates seeing colleagues again to share achievements and results of work.

Our company is getting closer to the European Union. As a first step in April we opened an LLC in the EU. In May we plan to open an office and start hiring staff for the European branch.

As usual, we will continue to grow and develop our internal regulations, best practices and experience which are the foundation of our approach. In the meantime we plan to expand the company and focus more on the dedicated team format https://abz.agency/dedicated-team/. However, this does not mean that we stop working in WPE format https://abz.agency/wpe/, on the contrary, it is one of the most common stepping stones to a dedicated team and is absolutely invaluable for our clients.

The company also does not stand still and moves forward at a growing pace. At the moment, 8 new guys are undergoing an active internship. By developing our company we contribute to developing the country.

With every day of the war Ukrainian people are becoming stronger. Guys are spending more and more time at work, one of them has even already returned to work in the office. I miss the office too.

Now our company is actively looking for new talented people. Many people have lost their jobs and we have a job to offer them. But the same high standards apply, first new guys still have to go through a 2-month internship, study the company's regulations, learn how to work in a team and, of course, study technologies.

One of the best ways to fight stress and cope with harsh reality is to keep yourself busy. Many guys now voluntarily propose to work on weekends to distract themselves from thinking about what is happening around. Some dedicate this time to helping family, friends and people around. Others just rest and continue on Monday refreshed. Everyone is unique and we do our best to understand each other during these hard times.

In the meantime, our HR, CTO and CEO is as busy as always doing interviews to hire new guys. Many have lost their jobs due to other companies and agencies closing, so we feel that we can step up and provide jobs.

We continue to work in Ukraine. All our guys are now working remotely from safe locations. Some of the guys stayed in Kyiv, some went to other cities of western Ukraine (Rivne, Lviv, Chernivtsi, Ternopil). But we continue to work.

We receive a lot of words of support and desire to help us and our country. You can help us continue our work. Guys, when they are busy with work, can think positively, stay calm and instill confidence in their families. Work allows our company to continue paying wages, taxes in Ukraine and remain solvent citizens of our country.

Support Ukraine not with words, but with deeds. Let’s work together on new projects. Give us this opportunity. This will be the best and real help for us.

Work for us today is a guarantee of stability for tomorrow.

Everything is calm and usual in Ukraine. There is no war. Kyiv lives its usual life. Construction of high-rise buildings continues as scheduled, the roads are full of cars and planes are still in the sky. People discuss how they spent their St. Valentine's Day with their loved ones and the sun shines brightly as usual.

When the big guys play their geopolitical games, we just have to wait until they play enough. The media is escalating the situation, but at this time we continue to work as always. If you want to get information about a real situation in Ukraine, ask locals.

We continue to do our best for our clients ;)

Our clients often ask us to tell more about Dedicated team and Work-Plan Estimate (WPE) engagement models. We decided to create two new pages for our website which clarify these topics:

Is PRD necessary or not?

Let's take a step back and look at our own example outside web development. As you know, our guys work in 3 offices across two cities in Ukraine. Recently we greatly expanded our team and needed more space to fit everyone in, so in early January we found a new bigger office space which needed a renovation. As everyone in a similar situation we encountered questions of the deadline and estimate for the repairs. You can’t just show the foreman and office manager the premises, tell them what you want and expect to receive a deadline and estimate right away.

Therefore we extended the same principles that we apply to every project and took it upon ourselves to develop a detailed 3D model of the new office in SketchUp. We thought of every little thing up to every lightswitch, camera, even all the posters on the wall and their prints. Then we prepared a complete and detailed document where we described all the work that needs to be done, provided the screenshots with precise technical measurements of what and where should be installed. We also made a list of all furniture, equipment and materials necessary for the new office. Painstakingly described every small detail like wall color, furniture color, location of cameras, lighting fixtures, antibacterial lamps, alarms, electronic locks, etc. Once we made sure that we covered everything we sent all the information for estimation. And when we met with the foreman and furniture maker in the premises, they provided us with a full estimate, a repair plan and a deadline in a couple of days. They guaranteed an accuracy within +/-10-30% which is not far from our own WPE.

As the real practice of successful projects shows, everything should start with PRD and the same principles apply to any project regardless of area.

New Year's eve is a time for presents 🎁

Each year we give all guys a paid week off for the New Year's holidays. During this time, the entire company is closed, the offices are quiet and all work chats freeze. Guys have an opportunity to relax and reset, so we can return fresh in a new year.

And also as a New Year's gift we will buy neck massagers to all of the offices, so that everyone can stretch their neck for 5-7 minutes during the day. Improved blood flow and relaxation will help guys to focus on the task even more and improve efficiency once they return to the workplace.

2021 was end, so we want to look back and reflect on the results. This year there have been many different events, both good and bad. We will forget the bad ones, but the lessons that we have learned from them will stay in our company's regulations (both organizational and technical) as always. We and our clients will remember everything that was good with a smile and joy in our eyes. Let’s also look into the future and set our plans for the new 2022.

The company has a number of goals in 2022:

  • - Expand and update two more offices in Kyiv
  • - Hire even more fresh talent and expand our numbers
  • - Continue to level up the guys under the Individual Development Plan
  • - Set a new bar for the quality of our work
  • - Expand the customer service and sales department
  • - Continue updating hardware to new MacBooks Pro based on M1 and M1 Pro
  • - Ensure stability for company guys during the global covid pandemic

Happy New Year, everyone!

This week we had an office shoot for a new short promotional video about our company. It was a fun and refreshing experience for everyone involved. The videographer came with a camera and we helped him choose the best angles and scenes which will better represent us. It was an unusual change of pace to think about the best way to film everything.

The videographer spent most of the day in the office with us, but it was not disruptive and guys were continuing their work on the projects as usual. Please look forward to seeing the result in the future!

10 December 2021

This week the guys got together to play volleyball again. It is always helpful to unload after work and be active to keep yourself in top condition. As always we were fully engrossed in the game thinking about serves, passes and game dynamics. The guys were very competitive as always and fully embraced the spirit of competition.

After that, the guys laid out hot pizza boxes right on benches in the gym. Next day, everyone actively shared their impressions at work during the break.

We are active at work the same as we are active afterwards. We look forward to sharing some of our energy, so do not hesitate to contact us if you want to work with us and see for yourself.

Our team is constantly expanding and welcoming new faces. The company arranges 2 months of intense internship for every new guy, teaching them the most advanced technologies and approaches.

During the internship we work in 3 directions:

  • - Study all detailed internal company regulations (3 organizational and 4 technical).
  • - Learn to work in a team and adjust in a new collective. During the internship, each trainee performs training tasks as part of a team including Project Manager, QA specialist and a mentor who checks the quality of the work performed.
  • - Studying theory and constantly applying it in practice. All the tasks that are performed at the internship stage are applicable to each of our major projects.

An internship is a very important stage in the guy’s growth. At this stage newcomers learn to be an integral part of the team and part of the company. Learn to communicate correctly and constantly acquire new knowledge from books. Also during this stage every guy starts their advanced English language course with our professional teacher.

Each week, management receives a report from the team about the trainee's development success to adjust the internship plan.

After the internship, each guy continues growth according to their Individual Development Plan, we always keep improving and never let complacency set in.

Guys from the Kyiv office decided to shoot some paint at each other after work. We chose to capture the flag as our “game mode” to make things interesting and sent 8000 paintballs at each other. It was fun as always! The only issue was that it got dark too quickly. We just stopped seeing where to shoot and decided to wrap up.

The next day, all the guys were as always in the office at 8 am on schedule and got on to work with refreshed motivation. We need to do our best for our clients, projects will not develop themselves. Therefore, our guys make sure to always be fresh and full of energy.

Do you want to see for yourself? If you have an interesting web project, just contact us and we will make it on time and with the required quality.

If you encountered any problems or your website speed evaluation deteriorated, our team at abz.agency will be happy to consult you on how to get them back up.

We bought another batch of MacBooks Pro on the Apple M1 platform, because the guys liked the performance. These MacBooks will be directed to primarily upgrade the hardware of dedicated teams.

In addition to teams working on an hourly basis, we have several dedicated teams (4-8 guys in each) who work full-time on specific projects as a direct extension of the client's team. At the same time, all the principles and regulations of our company are applied equally to all guys and clients of our company.

By extending our principles and regulations equally to all of our projects we ensure that we consistently provide quality outsourcing services for custom web solutions, browser extensions and web site development.

On November 8, our company will be 16 years old!!! We are as always hard focused on our main goal: to provide web development outsourcing services on time and with the required quality. During this time, we have successfully developed hundreds of projects for our clients who have been working with us for 3, 6 or even 10 years continuously!

We have our great team of 40 guys who work in our offices across two cities in Ukraine. The company strives all the time to be on the bleeding edge of advanced technologies and raise the expertise of the guys. 75% of all guys are involved in projects constantly and work full time in dedicated teams. The rest are working on new hourly projects. We will continue to further develop our client’s projects, improve the quality of our services and provide better working conditions for the team.

Last week our guys decided to warm up a little after work. We rented a gym and organised a friendly volleyball match. Everyone had a blast, even the photographer who was hit by a stray ball several times 🙂

Lead dev took an initiative and acted as the organiser of this event, which once again confirmed that the leader should always remain the leader both in the office and outside of it.

Our guys always approach things seriously, be it creating a PRD, developing a project or a volleyball match.

This week we welcome a new resident in our office, a 3D-printer. Everyone wanted to see how it’ll work so we decided to try it out right away and print our logo. Please join us and take a look at the result.

We are always fascinated by new technology and never miss an opportunity to build our own understanding and have hands-on experience with it, so when it's time to implement new ideas into our projects we are already one step ahead.

As our CEO says: “Team building does not take place at corporate parties or other events, team building takes place while working on a project in the workplace.” We have the same goal and always watch each other’s backs on the way to the finish line.

Our clients surely notice positive results of this mindset and we are always glad to receive feedback like this: “We're very happy with the work of the team. Yes, they've been really super reactive during our rush to launch our newest version on 1st of October and during Project Manager’s absence on top of it the dev were very communicative; so that was really cool. And I'm very happy that the Project Manager is back, personally I didn't enjoy filling his shoes too much and definitely appreciate what he does.”

When it comes to starting the development of a website, browser extension or mobile app you are looking for a “first step” to get the project going and commonly the first thing that comes to mind is a visual design. So naturally you find a designer who diligently translates all of your ideas, examples and suggestions to mockups and on the first glance designs look great, but when the time comes to apply them in practice everything falls apart. What went wrong?

You can compare this situation to building a house - you won’t be able to start construction based on a drawing of a house exterior. It takes into account only how it looks from the outside without considering its internal structure and supporting infrastructure and most importantly the drawing does not need to take into consideration any limitations like laws of physics.

The same is true for mockups which were developed without proper planning and comprehensive Discovery Phase which takes both the visual and technical side of the project into consideration to achieve the desired result while keeping all the limitations in mind.

If you are feeling lost you can always consult our articles to get a better understanding of a journey to bringing your idea to life

After working with the guys from the second office in Kyiv, we found time to drop by for the presentation of the new E-tron series from Audi and see for ourselves what future brings us in the automotive industry.

While we are on the crest of the wave of web technology innovation all the time, we do not want to also lag behind in other areas of innovation in everyday life. After all, we develop custom solutions for our clients from all the industries and must keep up with all new developments.

One of two Kyiv offices has recently moved into a new larger space. The guys were long waiting for the renovation to complete so they could move and enjoy the new loft style office.

The 3D model of the office, interior design and furniture were personally designed by our CEO in a SketchUp in literally 3 days. Then we began the renovation process which we completed with great success. The result speaks for itself: panoramic windows, two large open work spaces, central HVAC, two bathrooms, a large kitchen, two meeting rooms, a recreation room and other facilities.

In the near future we plan to take more photos and even possibly make a video tour. In the meantime, the guys settle in the new office and find their favourite places. It's easy to get used to good things, it feels like everyone was working here all along. We are very pleased with the new office and are happy to share it with you!

The third quarter of this year showed us that it is possible to grow even quicker. We have an unprecedented 8 internships running in parallel including front-end, back-end and QA specialists. To achieve this feat and successfully onboard new members, we had to revise not only the internship plan and update the tasks, but also reconsider the very approach to the internship.

In September and October, interns will complete a 2 month internship (which is mandatory regardless of the previous experience). Once the internship is completed, we will prepare to introduce the guys into real projects and get our output even higher.

We never stop keeping up with modern technology and updating the hardware in the company. This time we expanded our arsenal with 4 MacBooks Pro 16 (Intel Core i7, 16GB DDR4) and 2 MacBook Pro 13 (Apple M1, 16 GB DDR4) for comparison. Let's see how the new Apple M1 stacks up against Intel under real load on heavy projects.

We also bought a lot of peripherals for 4K monitors, apple mice and keyboards, monitor stands, adapters, and more. We provide everything that is necessary for the team to have every available tool to maximise their productivity and bring even more value to our clients.

Today I’d like to discuss one of the pain points - how you (our clients) sometimes increase the duration and cost of the development. In particular, let’s take the example of the Discovery Phase. Let me remind you that during the Discovery Phase we develop a PRD (Product Requirements Document) in close cooperation with you.

Here are several examples of reasons why you (as our client) increase the duration of the Discovery Phase with your own actions:

1. Discovery Phase is a stage where we build a PRD. It is not just answering the first 20-30 questions, but a full scale development of Project Documentation (Project Structure) and Visual representation (high fidelity wireframes). Many clients are initially confused about this which causes misunderstandings.

2. Clients often get distracted from the main goal of the project and begin wandering in discussions of future versions of the project, potential project’s or company’s success. Unfortunately this takes up the team's time while bringing no result in achieving goals of the current Discovery Phase. Modern custom solutions are built in a way that they can be easily modified according to your future needs, so you need to focus on the present.

3. All UI/UX decisions must be locked in during the wireframing stage and not later when working on mockups! Wireframing stage is specifically dedicated to going through each and every UI/UX question because it reduces
