Meet Flying Bisons' Development Team

I joined Flying Bisons in 2018. Back then, it was a much smaller company, and the Development team had no more than seven members, including me. I fondly recall these times. Still, I was glad that as we took on more and more projects, each more complex than the one before, the team grew. Now there are over 20 of us! We doubled and then some, and I became the Head of this merry band in 2020, the momentous year for the world, known as the year the pandemic hit. And while the pandemic may have changed how we worked, it didn't strain the relationships within the team. We already got to know each other quite well before. So even now, working either remotely or in a hybrid model, we still try to cultivate what we've built.

Milestones

And aside from connections, we've also built a lot together! We took on so many challenges and made plenty of apps and websites. One of our most memorable and, let's be honest, most significant projects was Park Of Poland. We managed to meet all of our Client's expectations. We used React, which later became a front-end library we decided to specialise in. But that was not the end of our growth. In 2021, we created a smaller group of React Native Specialists dedicated to making mobile apps within our development team.

Growth and self-development have always been very important to us. That's why we came up with "dev talks". Just like the much more popular TED talks, dev talks are when we get to share the knowledge we've gained from projects and talk about our tech passions. Our Slack channel is full of inspiration and news about tech solutions useful in our work.

People first

You see us as a team of specialists, and that's what we are. But to me, they are also people who inspire my everyday work and help bring truth to the saying that "if you like what you do, then you'll never work a day in your life".

So, without further ado, meet Flying Bisons' Development Team!
