Documentation

Continue to use Google Docs and Github wikis, but let's do it right

Communication processes

Slack was good until it became a time suck. Let's cut the fat

Let's go remote

The whole world can become your talent pool, but only if you got the right processes in place

We solve your problems at a process level

We train your staff so that every decision they make passes the bus and scale tests
Bus Test: if a key member of a project gets run over by the bus, will there be a major negative impact?
Scale Test: I'm gonna get what you're doing now and assign it to 20 other people, will that work?

                                            and user gets authenticated by Facebook
                                            and Facebook has no valid email address
                                            then user should be manually prompted to enter
                                                 their email address
                                        

Different documentation dimensions

You need to say the same thing different ways to make it dummy proof. We use gherkin docs, user maps, work flow diagrams, glossaries etc

Estimation as a process

Software development time is impossible to predict. Period. However done as a process, you can reach a point where you can be confident about when projects will be done

Communication Protocols

Slack can solve problems, and create some. We train your team to structure their communication to increase productivity and knowledge sharing and retention

Remote recruiting and Onboarding

Limited talent pool in your area? With our processes we make it possible to hire anyone, anywhere in the planet

Success is a journey, not a destination

We continue to refine the process according to your business specific requirements.

Clients

our processes have worked in the real world

With Vibereel we created a collaborative music player iOS app

One of our answers on StackOverflow was spotted by a Brazilian client who was interested in building an iOS app that required advanced knowledge in audio rendering in iOS. We quickly assembled a team of remote engineers and built Vibereel remotely and delivered it. Vibereel was very technically challenging as it required that we dig deeper than the high level Apple music API's and straight into the low level stuff. The remote team consisted of engineers from Canada, Ukraine, United States and Lebanon. The client was in Brazil.

Work Any Where

With Abjjad we integrated an E-book reader into existing iOS and Android apps

Abjjad is the first Arabic social network for readers, authors, and bloggers in the Middle East (think of them as the goodreads.com version of the Arab world). It already had successful iOS a Android apps, but without an E-book reader. Lobo Labs quickly put a remote team together and implemented the E-book reader in both their iOS and Android apps. You can try out the iOS app here and the android app here. The remote team consisted of engineers from Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, Ukraine and Canada. The client was in Jordan.

One Minute Setup

Worked as part of the mokus team to develop hiring and management processes

One project was in the HR Cloud space using a stack of Django/Angular/Docker/Vagrant/Gulp. Another project was an iOS/Android app for a health tech start-up. We worked with the Mokus team to manage a remote team that included engineers, QA staff and project managers from Dubai, Lebanon, United States, Ukraine, Turkey, Germany, Serbia, and Argentina. The client was in Dubai.

Work Any Where

With AIO Bot we're currently working on the processes set up and scaling the team

This is the current start-up we're working with right now. AIO Bot is an application that increases the likelihood of customers buying extremely rare items in limited release online sales. It does that by reverse engineering the checkout process of leading retails in the world such as Adidas.com. AIO Bot supports the niche yet very profitable market of limited item resellers and collectors. Although AIO Bot has a big team of engineers, customer support, QA personnel and PMs, Lobo Labs is helping them go remote to tap into the global talent pool. The client is in Lebanon yet serve the market mainly in the United States.
