A hand-picked team
Full Fat Things has been in existence for over 12 years. However, many of our team have known each other for far longer than that, either through common employment or through the industry. So we’ve developed good working relationships which allow us to focus on our clients, not each other.
Many of us have been involved in the wider open source community for a long time. Our team includes some of the key faces behind Drupal, for example, which we have helped to grow in stature and reach.
When we hire we hand-pick people who have contributed to open source projects to prove their passion for this kind of work, rather than just looking at their employment credentials.
There are no half measures when it comes to choosing who works with us – our reputation is as important to us as yours is to you.
We always use the right tools…
Many of us started out as Drupal experts, developing high-performance Drupal websites and applications, as well as consulting and providing web experience management solutions. Now, though, we go much further than that.
Even though our origins lie in Drupal development, we always adopt whichever solution will best meet a client’s needs and only recommend Drupal when it is the right fit. Drupal’s sweet spot is where content, communities and commerce meet, and there has to be a strong content element for us to want to use Drupal. We have developers on the team who are very experienced in other software, such as Wagtail, Ruby on Rails, Ember and Laravel, so we don’t have to prise a solution out of something that isn’t right for the job.
…And the right people
We call ourselves by titles such as senior web developer and project manager. But when your project needs it, we can offer additional services to help you meet your business goals. In the past, for example, we have provided recruitment support (including interviewing and hiring), training and mentoring, and even aspects of writing and marketing.
Importantly, we don’t ever outsource our clients’ work to offshore developers. We only take on projects we know our team can fulfil. And we all know each other extremely well, so we know who to call on for specific jobs and who to turn to when we need a second opinion.
