This is the story of Red Team's project at the SeedCon 2020 hackathon.
As a team, we’re about technical excellence and working with clients whose values we admire.
SystemSeed was founded by two really smart guys who wanted to form a social impact agency to solve big technical problems. We stepped in to help a global charity with a difficult IT situation and have kept going from there. We’ve been learning and growing for over 10 years now and don’t have any plans to stop soon.
Knowledge increases when it is shared, so that’s what we do. We run and speak at events, happily answer questions, and broadcast our team training sessions online.
Doing the right thing matters. It’s why we choose to work with positive impact organizations whenever possible. We’re proud to say that our work makes a difference.
Our clients have total access to our project communication channels and timesheets. We acknowledge mistakes, share how we fixed them and credit those who help us.
We treat our clients and colleagues like people not numbers. We bring our whole selves to work and dedicate a day per week for training, research or personal projects.
Your needs as a client are at the centre of our approach. Our process means that you get a great result as soon as possible.
Let’s see each other ASAP. In person or an online meeting, either works. We want to get to know you.
Have you already got a brief or tender document? Send them over! If not, we can help with that.
Through research, discussion, or one of our deep dive workshops, we get to the heart of your needs.
You’ll get a prototype to see how the final solution will work - whatever we’re working on with you.
We like to make sure everything will work as it should, so automated and human testing is vital.
Based on test and MVP feedback, together we’ll define what’s next and create and test that too.
We use aspects of Scrum, Kanban, DevOps, and AgilePM to manage our work on a case-by-case basis.
That’s how we run Agile projects, but our approach to agility offers much more to our clients. We can scale up or change direction very quickly, and bring in new expertise or techniques almost instantly, this is true business agility.
If you want some help in making it happen in your social impact organization, let us know.
