How we work

Our approach

Blocshop has been delivering great software remotely since 2012. All of our projects are guided by certified agile practitioners at no cost to our clients. We believe that agile methods help us protect our engagements and deliver the best outcomes for our clients. We work with four core cooperation models.

Project delivery model

This cooperation model is the most common. It contains a daily scrum and a demo of new features & retrospective.

Extended team model

Adds additional resources to your current processes. This model is ideal for SMEs when they need to increase development capacity.

Cherry picking model

Your core team can often be overloaded with tasks or face issues with project delivery. Redirect tasks to Blocshop.

Innovation lab model

When a company reaches a certain size, it can find it hard to focus on innovation. Outsource additional headcount for innovative projects.

Where we are

Our offices

We believe that the environments in which we work play a big part in how we feel in our lives. Blocshop has spent a lot of time trying to ensure that each of our locations reflects this value.
