WORKING WITH 5marbles

This short but important page will help you decide if we are a good fit.

Introduction

collaborateMany people—maybe even most—don’t get to choose their clients. 5marbles is a boutique software-development firm; it is anything but a chop shop. The company carefully selects its clients.

Right from the get-go, know this: 5marbles endeavors to make all of its clients as happy as possible. The company places great value in the fact that individuals and organizations can choose to work with any number of software-development outfits.

Fundamentally, there are three types of people in this world:

  • Those who get it.
  • Those who don’t get it but want to get it.
  • Those who don’t want to get it and don’t want to get it.

5marbles only works with the first two groups. If you fall into the third one, then we’re not a fit.

As evinced by our testimonials, working with 5marbles is easy and downright fun. No matter what we do together, it’s essential that we understand each other from the beginning. If you read this page and you decide that you would rather not work with us, then it has served its purpose and we wish you the best of luck.

Against that backdrop, here are some things that you should know about working with 5marbles.

E-Mail and Collaboration

It takes a great deal of work and collaboration to produce quality software. Doing so requires commensurate collaboration and this means eschewing e-mail.

5marbles uses truly collaborative productivity tools such as Slack, Dropbox, Trello, Github, and others to work together far more efficiently than relying upon e-mail alone. If you’re not open to using new tools, then we’re not a fit.

Clarity

If you’re not entirely sure about every feature of your mobile website, database, or website, that’s alright. 5marbles is here to help you think through general direction, specific features, product-release dates, and the like . Some people, though, simply cannot make decisions—ever. If you’re consistently vague and indecisive about what you want, however, then we’re not a good fit.

Micromanaging

Many clients understandably typically come to the table with many questions about the software-development process. Many people don’t know what they don’t know. What’s more, there’s always an initial period of adjustment with any new professional relationship. Still, there are limits to this adjustment process, and 5marbles simply isn’t interested in working with people who are overly critical and/or think that they know everything.

If you think that you always know more or know better than the members of our experienced team, then we’re probably not a fit.

Payments

If you don’t take invoices and payment terms seriously, then we’re not a fit.

Responsiveness

If you’re not responsive and/or don’t take our work seriously, then we’re not a good match.
