What we do

Technology for new businesses

We will bring your idea from zero to launch and then transfer the project to a new (hopefully internal?) team.

"Slow-cooked" startup incubator

Every six months we enjoy our Personal Innovation Week (PIWEEK). All Kaleidos stop everything to work for a week on any idea we come up with, no constraints whatsoever.

We will bring your idea from zero to launch and then transfer the project to a new (hopefully internal?) team.

Our project lifecycle

From start to public launch,
delivered by a cross-domain team

Inception

This stage is usually a self-contained project and will take 3-4 weeks, 7-9 work sessions and cost between 10.000€-15.000€. Get joined by 5-6 Kaleiders and go through a profound understanding of all things related to your project. From technology risks to target users down to a phased-out project plan. You will get plenty of eye-candy/content-rich deliverables to give anyone a great idea of your unique vision, and why it matters. This can be doubled up as a great pitch for potential investors. Inception does not require committment to further stages.

User Experience

Once the project is started, work to define your archetypical users has to be done. Using the concept of a "Persona" we do research, interviews, conceptual workflows and finally deliver hi-res prototypes and wireframes that will guide the team through a consistent narrative. UX will have a great impact on overall complexity and cost of the project so it is key that we get this right.

Visual Design

Every time UX has enough to show and that has been validated, Visual Design will step in and transform those wireframes into gorgeous pieces of art that will encapsulate your project's soul and make it tangible. It could be minimalistic or baroque but it will make your brand shine through colours, proportions, gradients and shapes.

Front-end

We are mostly Internet oriented so our clients and startups are web-based and since frontend technology is now ready to take native-applications type of challenges, HTML+CSS+JS can be your winning combo. A mature approach in the browser arena can beat out the competition both in desktop and mobile. Frontend engineers will take visual designs and bring them to life.

Back-end

Where the core infraestructure rests. These engineers will typically define your data model, most of the business logic and expose it through an agnostic API. Transactions will usually live here and databases and low level frameworks will be the core foundations of your technology stack. These people will take UX wireframes as valid references and negotiate quick and fault-tolerant services to the frontend layer.

Transfer

We might be your best partner to accelerate your product development for a successful launch. However, you should be able to operate it and evolve it your own way after that. That is why we make sure our technology and know-how are seamlessly transferred to your new team, which we help recruit and train. We are obsessed about quality and sustainability so you can enjoy a great handover with no glass ceilings and maximum freedom.

How we work

  • Agile

    We embraced the agile framework more than a decade ago and we have never stopped learning and adapting it for our projects.

  • Cross-domain

    We believe in skill diversity within the team. UX, UI, Front, Back, all enjoying one fruitful conversation from inception to conclusion.

  • Autonomy

    Kaleidos teams are mature self-managed groups of top notch people that take full responability and are committed till the very end.

  • Peers

    There are many shades of partnership. Our choice is the one that really works beyond the honeymoon; respectful and transparent.

Our tools

We praise them. They empower us.

Some people see them as tools only, a means to and end, but we know the journey matters and our choice of software should share our worldview.

Technology is not neutral and neither we are.
