Technology Gold Winners – Cheesecake Labs Top #10 Worldwide by Clutch

Clutch is one of the most respected authorities for assessment of software design and engineering companies. It’s a name you’ll surely have heard of more than once — perhaps you’ve even left a review for a supplier or collaborator on the Clutch website?

Voice search in online shopping: what’s happening today and what can we expect in the future?

Picture the scene: it’s a hot afternoon in July 2001, you turn the knob to your front door and lug your groceries into the apartment. You speed over to the kitchen counter and dump the bags of laundry detergent, canned food, and bottled water packs in a disorderly fashion.

Then you grab the mail out from under your arm, wipe your brow, and read through the TV listings to see what shows are on tonight. You sit down at your desktop to shoot off a quick email to your best friend, press play on some tunes via Windows Media Player, and return to the kitchen to unpack your spoils while waiting for their reply.

And somewhere, in the midst of it all, you reflect on how futuristic modern life has become…

From Cupcaker to Senior Android Engineer in 3 years — here’s one Caker’s career story…

It’s not easy building and nurturing a hybrid-remote team; you need to put equal time and effort into the personal and professional development of every employee. Because when you do, talent may just flourish from the most unexpected — and untrained! — places.

That’s exactly what happened when Diego Almeida de Oliveira first came to Cheesecake Labs in 2017.

Screw the minimum ‘viable’ product, let’s talk about value!

Chances are, you’re familiar with the term ‘Minimum viable product’. Colloquially abbreviated to ‘MVP’, these three words have taken the product development and lean startup world by storm for years.

And for good reason, too. Working with an MVP brings a whole host of benefits — it creates a framework for releasing new products quickly, without getting bogged down in the features that are nice, but not necessary, for your initial release.
