Delivering 5x the software with 15% of the ops effort are typical results for these folks. When they talked about their infrastructure upgrading itself overnight while everyone was asleep, I said 'I've been on a 22 year quest to make what you just said happen.'

Over more than a year we delivered huge amounts of software and infrastructure in regulated environments, whilst simultaneously giving their engineers on-the-job training as we pair-programmed with them. We acted as trusted advisors to tech leadership, took ownership of critical engagements, and also delivered instructor-led training overseas.
"We needed a team to partner with our engineers, model and teach the 'right' thing so that it became pervasive organizationally. EngineerBetter does just that and with an empathetic approach that had my teams eager to work with them more often."

We used our organisational transformation consultancy and facilitation skills to help Index Labs perform department-wide introspection, delivering a current-reality tree and recommendations, which helped the talented teams at Index Labs to refine their agile practice and improve productivity.
"EngineerBetter took us on two days of high-energy team facilitation which laid a sound basis for our team members to debate and clarify their expectations of a high performing fintech company. They followed up with some well-articulated recommendations, many of which have become part-and-parcel of our ways of working."

EngineerBetter performed short, focused consultancy to help blockchain fintech R3 scale their development organisation as smoothly as possible. We interviewed technical staff from across the organisation to explore and validate planned process improvements that would decrease lead time to production.
"EngineerBetter worked with us for a couple of days as we were planning to scale up from a single development site to having two. They provided us with an incredibly valuable external perspective that has helped us articulate and prioritise improvements to our engineering culture."
Dave HudsonChief Engineering Officer, R3
We've delivered instructor-led training classes and immersive training for Siemens and their partners in the UK, to help them leverage their Mindsphere IoT platform. Our style of training, which blends the technology with a set of values and practices has had a transformational effect on the individuals, their teams and business outcomes.
“The feedback from our participants was fantastic. They had the opportunity to spend time embedded with the EngineerBetter team, immersed in their environment and working practices. From this they brought back technical skills and experience, but also insights into new ways of working, which have helped massively in creating an agile culture and added a huge amount of value for us.”

We’ve enabled Gemalto to use Cloud Foundry as the product delivery mechanism for a new marketplace of data protection services. Whilst continuously deploying and testing infrastructure, and using Concourse to promote changes across multiple environments, we trained and upskilled Gemalto's engineers in high performance ops practices and a product mindset.
We work with global banks and financial services organisations. It’s been rewarding seeing our work’s impact at a global wealth management enterprise.
They have learned to work more effectively, build teams with a growth mindset and operate platforms embracing continuous change. To find out more, read the Cloud Foundry Foundation blog post and watch the CF Summit Keynote by Emma Hammond, Global PaaS Platform Owner.
They levelled up the entire team on day 1. The attitude and experience EngineerBetter brought to my team was infectious, and left a lasting mark on our engineers. I'd work with them again without hesitation.

We helped build a roadmap for a first-class Cloud Foundry integration, allowing developers to self-deploy Hazelcast clusters that can be scaled with zero downtime. We’re the only Hazelcast SI partner who are also Cloud Foundry Foundation members, making EngineerBetter the go-to consultancy for integrating the two technologies.
