For the past several years, the teams at Federis Group and Inkling have been devising, designing, and developing software products. We've had an extremely close working relationship, building products together and sharing best practices, helping hands, and even office space. While we shared a lot, our company-building efforts were separate, parallel efforts.
We started talking about what a combined company might look like and the more we talked about it, the more we liked the idea. We'd gain obvious benefits like increased cooperation and savings from combining back-office operations, but also some more nuanced wins like having the scale to free people up to focus on things they're good at. To that end, we've decided to combine our efforts as a new company, FlyoverWorks.
FlyoverWorks is a software design and development company that focuses on web and mobile software. Our mission is to build software and solutions, both for clients and our own products, that help organizations work in new ways. And as a company, we have some guiding principles:
1. Get things done
2. Be niceA friendly, polite person is a much more enjoyable person to work with and be around. Just because Steve Jobs was famous for being a jerk doesn't mean you need to be a jerk to be successful. We want to prove that nice guys and girls can finish first.
3. Solutions, not just complaints
4. Iterate the company like we iterate software
5. No energy vampires
