Review Summary

I had the pleasure to work with Nika Craft and its founder/owner Alexei Repetko multiple times in the past. The projects ranged from shopping API analysis and implementation, security programming with YubiKey API, and complex UI and system programming for the Naradana Platform.

Already appreciating the high standard of competence of the Nika Craft employees I was especially impressed by the positive working atmosphere. The positive and constructive attitude of all team-members was exemplary and allowed an easy going collaboration while maintaining a professional working style.

Also, I found that Mr. Repetko takes human values as important as fair business agreements and therefore provides a great working environment for his employees.

I'm looking forward to the next opportunity to work again with the people at Nika Craft.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

NikaCraft provided very high flexibility in collaboration style and adopting our new technology and method. We share a common attitude in terms of human values in the work environment. The communication capabilities are outstanding and helped to overcome any obstacles even before they could develop into collaboration problems. The company has very good knowledge of state-of-the-art technologies and beyond. The willingness of the developers to adjust to the special work environment and still providing constructive criticism was a significant contributions to the success of the collaboration - and highly enjoyable.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

Hire more equally qualified people - hence: give them projects and budget so the can do it!
