Q: How did you get started on SteelKiwi?

In 2011, Anton and I weren’t close friends but were well-acquainted and had many mutual contacts. In February 2011, we happened to meet among friends and our conversation took us to what we were doing for a living and how much we wanted changes. Back in 2011, I was involved in project management and Anton was a Python/Django developer, both common employees but with ambitions.

As we started sharing experiences, we came up with the thought that the software development market would soon be reorganized. For years, there wasn’t any good alternative to PHP development, and we thought it would be great if development companies started offering businesses an alternative to PHP. Python was already giving the power that businesses needed, and the language’s technologies and community kept growing.

Anton and I thought about using his development and my management skills to offer businesses high-quality products in a time-efficient manner. So, we’ve invested from our personal savings, and things heated up. What distinguished us from the rest of the market at that very moment was that we were delivering both technical experience and market expertise.

Today, we have built our expertise in different technologies and are now working with businesses from different industries, including consumer services, education, entertainment, food, and beverage, healthcare, media, real estate, recruitment, retail, sports, and travel and transportation.
