Northcoders launches brand new DevIncubator service

Northcoders – the Manchester and Leeds based coding school – is launching a brand new service called DevIncubator that will see it offer businesses across the North and beyond the opportunity to access its team of highly talented software developers for bespoke projects. This is the first time Northcoders has offered its team to commercial clients and is a central part of its growth strategy moving forward. DevIncubator has been created for those organisations which don’t have the capacity to house software developers on-site; whether that’s due to limited support, issues with space, or problems attracting developers to their area. It is also aimed at businesses who would rather not offshore or nearshore their work to software houses in hubs like Eastern Europe or parts of Asia. The process will see Northcoders create a hand-picked team of developers for each business it works with. The skills of every team member will be carefully tailored to the client’s specific needs and aims; whilst an experienced tech lead will then guide them through the project to ensure they understand the organisation’s technologies and working style. The ultimate goal is to build their products to best practice with minimal support and at a cost effective price. Example projects the team is able to deliver include desktop platforms, features within existing apps, mobile applications, websites, payment systems, chatbots and more. Amul Batra – Chief Partnerships Officer at Northcoders – said:“Our teams have the flair and imagination that you might not otherwise get through offshoring or nearshoring a project. A few months ago, we realised there was a gap in the market for this kind of service and we are incredibly excited about launching it. Amul added:Despite the current challenges we all face, firms of all sizes still need to push forward with their software development projects to ensure they are best placed for when things get back to normal. We think the DevIncubator will help facilitate that in both a cost and time effective way.” Northcoders recently undertook a pre-launch trial project of the DevIncubator service with The IDOL.com which is a financial technology company that offerscomparison services to the UK’s largest insurance comparison websites. Adam Vaughan – IT Director at The IDOL.com - said:“Working with the DevIncubator team was fantastic and we have been very incredibly impressed with what they produced for us. We have previously used Eastern European software houses, but I think one of the biggest advantages of choosing Northcoders was having a team of creative problem solvers that we felt connected to. Although we sat in at the beginning of the process, and specified a list of user requirements and outputs, they quickly identified new features along with a whole stream of other improvements that would add value. Having that kind of insight and knowledge was a game-changer for us.”
