Since we started working with Personal Programmer we grew a team of 8 programmers in Macedonia. In Amsterdam it wasn’t always easy to find highly trained programmers and the advantages of a remote team where clear to us. We started with hiring two programmers and were so satisfied we expanded one by one. Our company in The Netherlands grows and so does our development team in Macedonia.
We often travel to Macedonia to meet with our team personally. This is easy for us since the traveling distance is relatively small. We leave in the morning and are in our Skopje office before lunch. We have our own space their where our programmers can work together.
Every programmer in Macedonia is linked to a programmer in The Netherlands. We call this the ‘buddy-system’, this way every programmer has their own buddy and this strengthens the bond between the people in Macedonia and Amsterdam.
